My family is so grateful to my cousin Vicki Morman for notififying us on social media about the status of her nephew Justin Young who attends Ohio State University. By now, you all heard about the stabbings on the campus of Ohio State University. Thank goodness Justin was safe inside his frat house at the time of the incident. Amen!
If you didn’t see 60 Minutes Sunday night, make sure you get a copy of it. There are a significant number of folks with Alzheimer’s (at an early age) in Medellin, Columbia. A certain mutation has been identified. Click here to read more about what 60 Minutes discovered.
Buying A Ferrari On-The-Spot
This epitomizes our week in Los Angeles. I just witnessed, a young guy, buying a Ferrari for cash, right from my hotel window at the Mondrian. I checked with valet. This was not a rental, but a cash transaction with witnesses to inspect the interior, exterior, and paper work. The staff says this is not uncommon here. Lucky girl friend sitting on ledge, swinging her dancing legs. DigiDame captured rare sighting.
Long Live 301
Our hotel room number was 301 at The Mondrian in Los Angeles. This is extremely significant since it was our address for 40 years in Manhattan. 301 East 62nd St. We loved it. Our lucky number.
My daughter Whitney, and her boyfriend Fredrick, presented me with a birthday present that was a perfect DigiDame gift. I’m now the proud owner of a Marchesa Amphora necklace that was made on a 3D printer.
You can read all about it below. I am thrilled that I am one of the first women to own a piece of precious metal that was manufactured on a 3D printer. I find it very exciting that they thought enough of me to make sure I was at the forefront of something that I believe in so much.
Thank you Whitney, and thank you Fredrick.

Thank you for taking us down this nostalgic road. This is a 3 minute video slide show, and worth the time it takes to watch it. If you lived during the 1950s, you will recognize the pictures.
Snapchat is an app that allows you to get extremely creative with short-lived or self-deleting photos and videos. If you watch my creations below, you will understand why you may not want these on files forever. My cousin Hanna and I had a ball making these.
It’s about time that seniors have more fun with digital applications. Try it, you’ll love it.
- I’m officially old. I don’t get it. I am just reporting the news. Instagram, the social media platform where we post pictures and captions, is now adding a new feature. You can send disappearing photos and videos to groups and friends in Instagram Direct!
Why anyone would want to do this is beyond my imagination, but apparently the under 40 crowd loves this type of feature. Other social media platforms, like Snapchat and Periscope, already have it. I guess young folks want to capture themselves doing stuff that they don’t want the world to see. They want it to disappear in a short period of time.
Tech Crunch, a tech site, has an in depth story that explains it all. You can click here to read all about it.
Kevin Weil of Instagram told Tech Crunch, “Instagram should be all of your moments, not just your highlights. Since the new Live and Direct content self-destructs, Instagram hopes users will be less concerned about how they look or if they’re doing something cool.
“Instagram Live videos disappear as soon as the stream stops, which could get people broadcasting more frequently rather than saving the capability just for big flashy events or citizen journalism. Meanwhile, viewers will feel greater urgency to watch immediately because they know it’s their only chance.”
