Class CANCELATION Advisory

I’ve always said people are more important than anything, so now it’s time to put my money where my mouth is. A couple of days ago I was notified that my favorite uncle, great-Uncle Al in California, just had a couple of heart attacks, and if I’m going to say goodbye to him, the time…

What Has Stuck?

I am not a fan of change. I’ve accepted it as part of life, and I’m working at not having a breakdown every time something I want to happen doesn’t happen, but I really STILL hate change. Unfortunately life IS change, so Denny’s advice is still true: “Suck it up, Buttercup!” So I do!   A…

Are You Afraid To Read This?

Recently (and against my will), I acknowledged that fear has been a major motivator in my life.  As time has passed and I have faced my fears and confronted them, I’ve seen that life isn’t as scary as I thought it was. I end up feeling stronger after delving into situations head-on, although many times…

From The Patio To The Ballroom

Rob recently posted this picture from the Country Cruisers‘ 2014 performance in Washington, D.C. before our competition.  Ah, what memories!!  It was such a kick to set up the video camera and dance our number in front of the Lincoln Memorial, with the Washington Monument in the background (portable speakers are so handy).  We had some…

Reflections on the Ranch

This past Saturday I returned to my roots and spent the evening dancing at the country dance bar formerly known as Cadillac Ranch, and now called Lucky Star.  Doesn’t sound too remarkable, does it?  Well, it was a major decision for me.  At that venue, I met my last two dance partners, led a dance…

ENDGAME: Life, Actually

For the first time in my life, I saw a movie on opening night, in the front row – AVENGERS: ENDGAME.  I continued seeing it the next FOUR weekends in a row – and need to see it again before it disappears from the theaters.  That’s unprecedented!!  Boy, that movie captivated me.  Has it only been…

Introducing…DANCEWITHJANET.COM!

Introducing…DANCEWITHJANET.COM! Although I’ve had the www.dancewithjanet.com website for 7 years, I confess I’ve not been as dedicated to it as I should have been. I’ve been…distracted. Well, now I’m in recovery, and I finally listened to my FABULOUS webmaster’s urging and spent the time needed to clean cyberhouse with her, page by page. Hence, the picture above…

Kickoff To Summer

My mom left for a week-long trip to Niagara Falls at 6 am this morning. About this time last year, I did the same thing, but I was on the back of Chris’ motorcycle for a ride around Lake Erie; we stopped for a couple of days at the Falls. Talk about a deluge of…
