The Stories I Tell ~ from The Word Cellar

Stories. Anecdotes. A free round of words for everyone!

I love stories. I'm the one at social functions with a dozen new anecdotes. But I worry about hogging the conversation. Sometimes I tell myself that I'll be quiet and let others do the talking. But no matter how hard I try, my stories insist on bursting out! Here I can let my stories (the classics that I tell again and again, as well as new ones that unfold along the way) run free. I'm a professional writer and editor, and sole proprietor of The Word Cellar. I write for a variety of publications and clients on everything from green buildings and nuclear reactors to entrepreneurship and the arts. If you need words written, edited, or enlivened, I can help. Contact me.


Tea is Good for your Ovaries

According to an MSN article, a new report indicates that drinking tea helps to prevent ovarian cancer. And apparently quantity does matter. "Researchers found that women who drank two or more cups of tea had a 46 per cent lower risk of ovarian cancer. Women who drank less tea (one cup a day) had a 24 per cent lower risk of ovarian cancer."

I've loved tea since I was a little girl. My babysitter, an older woman named Valli, made me little cups of Lipton with plenty of milk to go along with my finger sandwiches of ham, cheese, mustard, and sweet pickles on wheat bread. Lovely.

I've moved beyond Lipton now, but I do still love a good ham sandwich.
