Hello, world! Nice to meet you!

I am, Rita, a retired, 63 year old woman, baby boomer, living with my husband and cat in a suburb of Austin, TX.  I am here because I, with the assistance of my daughter, Addie, who was born in the 1970’s, want to share ideas and lessons I have learned through the years.


Who hasn’t said at one time or another, “If I had known then what I know now….!” I was born in the 50’s and grew into puberty in the 60’s, when certain subjects, such as sex, dating, education for women, etc., were rarely discussed at home. The 60’s through the 80’s was a transitional time of extreme social change with philosophical and moral shifts in Civil Rights, Women’s Rights, Gay Rights, America’s involvement in Vietnam, economic changes and Conservatism.


And what a time to make mistakes and learn lessons that were not as apparent then as they are now. Thus, “If I would have known…”. I want to share some of the ideas and lessons that I have learned over the years in an informative, entertaining and useful way that will make you want to come back often.

I look forward to reading your comments and any learning lessons you would like to share.

We will talk again soon!
