A lady likes to pee standing up –

After reading Cunt, I want to take more charge of my bodily fluids – change my relationship to my cycle.  She, Inga Muscio, writes of inducing her own abortion using herbs and her mind.  She writes of using moon charts.  She also highlights spending money on women’s products created by women and owned by women.

Home Births, again.

I have written about home births before and I am going to write about it again. One, I seem to behind the boat about New York Magazine‘s little narrative about home births.  This is another reason why being subscribed to the print magazine doesn’t always cut it.  I had missed several responses (not all negative, […]

ABC Carpet and Home

ABC Carpet and Home is in the Flatiron district right above Union Square on 18th and Broadway.  This store has six floors and has installed a restaurant next door, Pipa Tapas y Mas (which has the most delicious brunch!) to show off some of their wares in action.  Believe me, if I could afford to […]
