Veteran's Day

Thank you. It's really just that simple. Babe It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose…

Life - Ron White

by Babe with a Mane  |  Friday, October 16, 2009 7:40 AM

Tonight's the night! I'm actually venturing out. Being cooped up since mid-June with my silly injury has finally made me stir crazy! That's it, I'm breaking out of this house! We have tickets to see Ron White tonight! If you haven't heard him, take a…

Still Tweeting on Twitter

by Babe with a Mane  |  Wednesday, October 14, 2009 9:21 AM

I'm still "Tweeting"...problem is, I just can't figure out why in the world 350 people are "following" me! Do you think they all wear hair or are they just curious about what I had for breakfast? Are you following me? http://twitter.com/BabeWithAMane…

Lessons - 1st try with the Sticky Stuff

by Babe with a Mane  |  Tuesday, October 13, 2009 8:17 PM

Nightmares are scary. Sometimes, my nightmares aren't at night, but instead they happen when a recollection of a moment in time happens...you know, a memory that you wish was buried deep never to resurface again? So, yesterday - I had one of these "nightmares"...I…

Random Thoughts - Who takes longer to primp...Blondes or Brunettes?

by Babe with a Mane  |  Wednesday, October 07, 2009 7:42 PM

Frankly, I can't imagine taking anywhere near the time quoted in this article! Ladies, before you read the article, take a wild guess and vote for who you think takes longer to get ready - Blondes or Brunettes http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/6268201/Blondes-take-longer-than-brunettes-to-get-ready.html…

Recommendations - No Sweat

by Babe with a Mane  |  Tuesday, October 06, 2009 11:10 AM

Every once in a while, I'm introduced to a product that appears to be a real "game changer". This product is turning into one quickly! The test bottle was marked "No Sweat" and wow...it means what it says! Not only did it keep any moisture at bay, it…

Random Thoughts - Chris Rock on Oprah

by Babe with a Mane  |  Thursday, October 01, 2009 9:45 AM

Oprah - you know...I really do love you. But yesterday while watching your show? The few natural hairs I have left on my head stood up. Chris Rock? He may know a bit about hair, but I'm thinking he needs more education before spouting off lines like,…

Lessons - Weather and Adhesives

by Babe with a Mane  |  Saturday, September 26, 2009 10:42 AM

Sitting here looking out the window (which is the only thing I can do for quite some time) I'm watching my leaves turn red and begin to fall. After several deep sighs, I realize that summer is over and fall has definitely arrived. Now don't get me wrong,…

Life - Surgery Update

by Babe with a Mane  |  Friday, September 25, 2009 12:19 PM

Hello to all! Well first of all...OUCH!!!! Now that it's out of my system, I just wanted to let you know that everything went fine and I'm home. I'm so thankful for the great staff and the educated hands that "fixed me"! I have to remain in this immobilizer…

Life - Sugery Panic

by Babe with a Mane  |  Monday, September 21, 2009 9:21 AM

Now it's my turn. I am usually the one telling everyone else that fear stands for F=false E=evidence A=appearing R=real. Isn't it pathetic that I'm having difficulty believing my own words today? I've had surgeries before and have never been afraid, but…

Lessons - Do you know what you pay for?

by Babe with a Mane  |  Thursday, September 17, 2009 11:58 AM

People ask me very often why I get my hair from Hair Direct. Those of you who know me, know that I am not considered a "salesperson". Frankly, I've never been very good in that arena. Instead, I'm someone just like you who was desperately seeking a way…

Random Thoughts - RIP Patrick Swayze

by Babe with a Mane  |  Tuesday, September 15, 2009 9:42 AM

From the rough and tumble "Roadhouse" to the clash of the classes in "Dirty Dancing", Patrick Swayze was one of my favorite actors. Maybe it's because I used to teach Ballroom Dancing and compete professionally. After all, both of his parents were professional…

Lessons - Applying Adhesive

by Babe with a Mane  |  Sunday, September 13, 2009 1:29 PM

This point can't be stressed enough...LET IT DRY!!!!!! Ok, I won't yell anymore, but I just have to be heard. The first time I applied glue to my freshly shaven scalp, I glopped it on and then slapped the hairpiece I had made on top of it. Those of you…
