    The Mad Woman In The Volvo: Menopause

    in Lifestyle

     


    EPISODE: THE MAD WOMAN IN THE VOLVO:Raging Hormones


    Guest Speaker: SANDRA LOH, writer, actress & radio personality.


    Thursday, October 9, 2014 at 6:30p est


     


    At 49, Sandra Tsing Loh’s life exploded: She scurried off with eight women to the decadent Burning Man festival and fell into bed with her business partner, “Mr. Y,” divorced her husband and became a crazy person.


    All this, she writes in a new memoir, “The Madwoman in the Volvo: My Year of Raging Hormones,” because she had entered menopause. 


     “It’s like you lived on earth, and then you went to the moon, and lived there for a while,” Ms. Loh said. “Now you’re back where you started” — the hormone levels of a preadolescent — “and it’s, like, ‘Welcome home.’ ”


    What's For Dinner:

    The Wait Is Over...Pirelli World Challenge Is On! - Alex Figge And Chris Sneed!

    in Automotive

     


    If you're like us (which narcissistically we assume you are) then you've been counting the days to the start of the 2014 season for the Pirelli World Challenge!  We are happy to report that our wait is over.  No longer must we download YouTube videos, or playback DVR highlights from 2013!  All the speculation and excitement around this season in GT/GT-A/GTS has come to fruition.  It's all happening this weekend on the marina-side streets of beautiful St. Petersburg, Florida!  We've put together one hell of a kickoff celebration, with a couple of the series' best examples of personality meets pro-racing....


    First the unbridled comedic character of our buddy the "Hard-Charger" - Chris Sneed of Sneed Speed... Then the unbelievably talented, and amazingly funny Alex "Cobretti" Figge! - Both with some very cool, and unique opinions on the sportscar racing world as we know it.  We'll peer into our World Challenge fantasy future with Chris, and get the lowdown on being the new K-Pax McLaren's fighter pilot from Alex.  If you like badass cars and the Stallone classic Cobra (And who doesn't?- Cobretti wants to know), then this is an interview you need to hear. Honestly with all the great street racing action about to go down in St. Pete, and the ridiculously stacked grid this season, can you afford to miss this episode?  Fuel up, charge up, and get ready to rock... THE PIRELLI WORLD CHALLENGE IS ON!
