Annmarie was invited Diane McGraw to Happy Hour and they talked about everything sports – the upcoming World Series, what it was like to be part of that World Series experience. Diane was married to Phillies relief pitcher and legend, the late Tug McGraw,during the winning Phillies 1980 World Series.

Diane also wanted you to know about her event next weekend. It’s the PA Sports Hall of Fame Induction ceremony weekend, October 23-24.
I found two articles about women in the early days of women in sports that show how different it is for women in journalism and management today compared to what it was even just 30 years ago: Female Execs and Women journalists. And I found this fun article about the Chicago Cubs prediction: BackToTheFuture

If you missed the article about the Checo kid who got the Papal blessing: Pope Francis
About the Thriller dance, here’s the one I danced last year: Thriller Scranton. It’s hard to see me, but I’m in the center, jut north of the middle in a black shirt and jeans. if you want to dance Thriller, here’s info: Thrill the World. BTW: If you have any suggestions for how to bring this to West Chester next year, let me know at
My quote for this week is from speaks-to-my-heart and it’s great for us midlife women who want to live out loud and in living color.

“You can’t hide your true colors as you approach the autumn of your life.”

What are the Maine Diaries?

The Maine Diaries is a fun look at my annual adventure to New England where I unwind from normal life and reconnect with myself.

I was captivated by the Maine Coast on my first trip there in the late 90’s. In the years since, I’ve traveled up and down the coast from Kittery to Calais but I spend most of my Maine time Downeast. I love the adventures I have and the chance to unwind from the world and restore my inner clarity. I chronicle my experiences in The Maine Diaries.
