I've not yet read Dr. Laura's The Proper Care & Feeding of Husbands, mostly because I haven't had a husband since the book was written. I've always liked her book 10 Stupid Things Women Do to Mess Up Their Lives.

Thanks much for the mention, Daniel!

I love the Friday links. They always have something for me to think about in a new way. Please keep them up!!

Daniel said...

Wosnes, she certainly doesn't mince words, and that can be a huge asset for readers of her books. Unfortunately--in the case of her radio show recently--it can also be a huge liability for her.

Tovar, you are welcome. Keep posting your thought-provoking material.

Cynthia, I'm deeply grateful for your kind words and feedback. Rest assured, I'll keep these weekly links posts running!

I followed a vegan diet for a while. While I can't say I felt bad without animal products, I didn't feel really good, either. Once I added animal products back into my diet, I started feeling much better. While my current diet is plant-based, there's some kind of animal food daily.

The involtini di pollo sounds delicious! Trent's list of what being frugal has taught him is thought-provoking. I've observed some of the same things.
