Our digital age forces us to gain access to customer service through the internet. The frustration mounts with each successive non-answer. Insist on talking to a human if you're caught in the prison of electronic exchanges. It's individually empowering. Dinosaurs demand their dignity.
As a self-proclaimed dinosaur, I applaud women of the great- and grandmother generation who assert their confident sense of chic on Instagram and elsewhere, where they strut designer gear and original combinations of stylish attire.
Fellow fossils, add this trip to your bucket list: The Jurassic Coast, a 95-mile stretch of seashore on the English Channel side of southern England and World Heritage Site. This offbeat vacation spot beckons to those of us who once dug for dinosaurs when we were kids. Check out Charmouth Beach, in Lyme Regis. Thanks to ongoing cliff erosion, a host of prehistoric treasures may be plucked from the rocky shore. Not exactly a sun-drenched beach, so don't go seeking a tan! But you may find a belemnite instead.
