I wanted to shake up my life and go sailing (or learn on the job, so-to-speak) so headed to Florida to crew on a catamaran. This is about how it went or, rather, didn't - and my life since. Hopefully it will lead to a catamaran on the clear aqua blue waters of the Caribbean Sea, watching the sunset, a coconut rum and coke in hand. You must START AT THE BEGINNING of the blog, April 2009, to get the whole story...

Ok so not a real 'poll' but I need help with a decision.

For years I had my hair short and dark brown. For a while, about two years, I dyed it black. Then a year or so ago I went gradually blond - well a light brown base with lots of blond highlights. And longer gradually. I don't want black hair again - when I look back on photo's it was too harsh.

It seems some people think I look great blond and longer hair, others think I looked better dark and short. So I am putting up a few pictures of both ends of the spectrum and the stages between and asking you, dear reader, to leave a comment and let me know what you think. I WILL go with the majority on my next visit to my hairdresser, who also happens to be my son's girlfriend, so please weigh in with your opinion. Dark, blond, or one of the in-betweens. Which is it to be?

Even if we've never met in person, I value your opinion based on the pictures so let me know.


I can't make captions work so lets just number them from 1 to 8 from left to right, 1-4 on the top row, 5-8 on the bottom row. Let me know which number you prefer.

Oh, and here's a really old one from 2002! No highlights whatsoever.


  1. i think you should go with an Afro.

  2. I kind of like the mid length with some curls (#s 3 and 7). Darker colors with some lighter highlights look good on you. In the end, it's all about what you are comfortable with ! I'll Love anything you do !!!


  3. I am partial to #4. That is a good look for you.

  4. The very last one blond and longer is the youngest hippest look. The color and shape around your facial structure is the best one.
