It was mid morning yesterday when I arrived at my Mom’s apartment and mid afternoon when we ambled out to the car to begin our errands. In the interim, we’d had toast and coffee, I’d tamed her bedhead hair with spray and mousse, and I’d done a quick alteration on her summer dress.

Nothing seems more of a waste of time and money than the Oscars. Last night for over three hours millions of people, statistics of which show 7-9% of them unemployed and most of the others barely scraping by in menial labour, watched wealthy celebrities in designer dresses get out of limos, walk down red carpets, . . . → Read More: The Scott Ross: The Awe Of Oscar
