Some Recent Columns at Oprah.com
Many of you have been loyal readers of this blog for years and to all of you I loudly say thank you! As many of you may know, about four months ago I became a featured contributor on Oprah.com writing a column every other week.

To those new readers from Oprah.com I thank you in advance for your patience as you may have read some or all of these columns before. If not, here is a chance to catch up on what you missed.
