Dental Implant - Do or Don't?

Two days ago I had a lower, right molar extracted.  Tooth #31.  Apparently I had cracked it or something.  I believe I injured it as a result of bruxism (teeth grinding).  Anyway, once the tooth was pulled, the dentist reiterated that an implant would be his recommendation.

That's where I am now.  Do I or don't I?

The cost of an implant is pretty damn steep.  At least $3500.  And I pay out of pocket, so I have to watch every penny.

I'm online right now, searching the internet, reading testimonials of the pros and cons of implants.  99% of what I'm reading is from folks who agree with my dentist.  In fact, I've read only one testimonial from a disgruntled customer of an implant.  And, whew, she was plenty disappointed.

Geez!  I've got some serious thinking to do.  Tomorrow, I'm gonna go to my dentist and get a printout of all necessary costs, then go from there.


I wanna live WITH 'em.  DON'T wanna live WITHOUT 'em!

Miss Commerce Pageant 2016

This past weekend I had the honor of serving as a judge for the 56th Annual Miss Commerce Pageant & Queen's Ball 2016!!!

Honestly, I was floored when I was asked to come aboard, but I was promised I'd have a great time, and all us judges would be treated like ROYALTY!

Well, I'm here to say, everything I was told came true.  In spades!!!!!!!! The entire City of Commerce gets behind this event, thus it's truly top notch!

Joining me as judges were a SUPER TALENTED and SUPER-DUPER FRIENDLY group of folks: Blanca Valdez (casting director), Jorge Diaz (actor), Juan Carlos Arvelo (actor) and Ingrid Marie Rivera (former beauty queen).  The group of us got along great and were super meticulous during the judging process.

I thank Russell Alexander Orozco for inviting me!!!!!!

And I salute Miss Commerce 2016!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Kevin Burton's Spring Beauty

From 1990 to 1996 I worked as a women's clothing sales specialist at Macy*s Herald Square.

Hated the job, but truly enjoyed many of my coworkers.

One of them, in particular, MR. KEVIN BURTON, still works there, but is also a PHENOMENAL photographer!  I mean, so phenomenal, taking photos SHOULD be his bread and butter!

These spring images I'm showcasing here are just a smidgen of Kevin's artistic eye.  

Check out all his other images and anecdotes explaining how he came to shoot them HERE!

Sign On The Dotted Line

Well, well, well, today I went into my new commercial agency and signed an 18-month contract.


Years ago, I had a commercial agent, but I never booked a single gig with him.  So, in short order, he and I parted ways.

This time, I feel better about EVERYTHING!  I'm gonna simply SHOW UP and DO THE WORK!  And as a result, BOOKINGS will follow!

I just KNOW it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  :)

F' That!

Shake Shack has made its way into the City of Angels!  And from the looks of it, folks are hella anxious to get at their burgers and frozen custard delicacies!

I saw that long line last night and proceeded to drive PAST it and bought my meal from a competitor!  :)

I Don't Wanna Hear It

Please, people, NO MORE anti-TRUMP statuses!

They WILL NOT/CANNOT change the minds of those who LIKE him!

Instead, SHOUT to the world why YOUR candidate is BETTER-SUITED for the job!

All I see are reasons folks DISLIKE Trump, but not ONE reason WHY they like whomever they like!

If EVERYBODY's talking about Trump, it stands to reason that he's the ONLY person anybody will think of at the polls!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ‪
