I truly believe that one of the reasons why I look and feel so well
is because I’ve very few inhibitions.
I don’t care about age.
Life is too short to worry about what other people think. ~Mamie van Doren
It is possible that blondes also prefer gentlemen.

Air Conditioning can be so artificial.
Time to squeeze into that bikini and be with the natural elements.
You may be hot, but your soul will feel better facing the Sun.
Happy 4th of July!
Looks like Susan Hayward had the same challenges as dievca with humidity and wild-a** hair!
Enjoy your Day!!
So maybe your back hurts
Sweat is dripping between your breasts
Insects are buzzing around your moist upper lip
Dirt is ground into your nails
High heels can irritate your back
Glitter lotion can cause your cleavage to shine
Lip plumper inflames your lips
Nail polish can hide messy nails
You would be in the same position body-wise and look a heck of a lot better, but….
you would be missing the natural glow gardening gives to a body and soul.
dievca’s hands are in the dirt!
CINCO DE MAYO:
In the United States, Cinco de Mayo is widely interpreted as a celebration of Mexican culture and heritage, particularly in areas with substantial Mexican-American populations.
Chicano activists raised awareness of the holiday in the 1960s, in part because they identified with the victory of indigenous Mexicans (such as Juárez) over European invaders during the Battle of Puebla.
Today, revelers mark the occasion with parades, parties, mariachi music, Mexican folk dancing, and traditional foods such as tacos and mole poblano. Some of the largest festivals are held in Los Angeles, Chicago, and Houston.
Cinco de Mayo is not Mexican Independence Day, a popular misconception. Instead, it commemorates a single battle. The date is observed to commemorate the Mexican Army’s victory over the French Empire at the Battle of Puebla, on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza.
Within Mexico, Cinco de Mayo is primarily observed in the state of Puebla, where Zaragoza’s unlikely victory occurred, although other parts of the country also take part in the celebration.
Traditions include military parades, recreations of the Battle of Puebla, and other festive events. For many Mexicans, however, May 5 is a day like any other: It is not a federal holiday, so offices, banks, and stores remain open.
Cheyenne, WY-based Taco John’s – which has nearly 400 locations in 23 states – put its legal stamp on “Taco Tuesday” 30 years ago and has since zinged cease-and-desist letters at offenders far and wide.
Like “raisin bran,” ″escalator,” ″nylon” and other formerly trademarked products, “Taco Tuesday” has suffered from “genericide” – it has become too well-known to continue to be identified with a particular company, said Seattle-based attorney Michael Atkins. The term even made a fairly significant appearance in “The Lego Movie,” a 2014 kid film based on the popular plastic toys.
“It’s kind of asinine to me think that one particular taco seller, or taco maker, would have monopoly rights over ‘Taco Tuesday,’” Atkins said. “It has become such a common phrase that it no longer points to Taco John’s and therefore Taco John’s doesn’t have the right to tell anybody to stop using that.”
Taco John’s offers Americanized Mexican fare advertised as “West-Mex.” Mildly spiced, fried potato nuggets called Potato Oles – dipped in salsa or nacho cheese or packed in a burrito – are a signature item.
The company trademarked “Taco Tuesday” in 1989, claiming a Minnesota franchisee began using “Taco Twosday” to advertise two tacos for 99 cents in the early 1980s. The trademark applies in every state but New Jersey, where another restaurant already had secured the right to “Taco Tuesday.”

Marie was born in Kentucky, the daughter of a former Ziegfeld Girl and granddaughter of opera singer. At the age of 15, Marie became a Powers model and dropped out of school so she could enter beauty pageants, winning the title of “Miss Yonkers” and “The Queen of Coney Island” on the way to becoming “Miss New York” in 1939. Soon after, she moved to Hollywood and became a singer with Tommy Dorsey’s Orchestra, but could only land movie roles in the chorus line or small one-line parts.
Lacking the talent to really make it in Hollywood, she sought attention through scandal.
On top of 7 marriages, she had affairs with two of Elizabeth Taylor’s ex-husbands and even mobster Bugsy Siegel. In 1957 she got national attention by claiming to have been kidnapped by two men. Afterwards, her tabloid appearances were numerous, with car accidents, arrests, alcoholism, drug abuse, and ultimately committed to a psychiatric clinic.
After escaping from the clinic, and a wild string of abuse and excess. In 1965, McDonald was found dead at the age of 42 as a result of a drug overdose. Her widower followed.

ConEd turned off the gas in dievca’s building – something about a connection to the building needing to be replaced. That makes cooking for a Friendsgiving tricky.
Then a friend reminded dievca that she has an InstaPot and another friend lent her portable electric hob from when her building had a gas leak. dievca is good to go! Maybe~
Wish dievca luck as she is wishing you a very ‘Happy Thanksgiving’. XO

“It was the funniest thing in the world to see a customer buying a shampoo, a toothpaste, and a dildo. Where else are you going to find that?” Nowhere except the famous Ricky’s NYC.
dievca has been riding her bike everywhere in the NYC and it makes stopping, shopping or wandering the City harder to do. One of the stores that is no longer in her neighborhood is Ricky’s. she hasn’t visited a Ricky’s store in a long time and she was worried that they were going out of business. Turns out they are re-organizing….
Here’s how Ricky’s describes itself:
An edgy, ultra-hip “beauty shop” specializing in unique fashion accessories, cosmetics, and beauty supplies, Ricky’s NYC has been a part of New York’s urban chic culture for nearly two decades. From style-conscious teenagers and their suburbanite moms to Hollywood celebrities and their professional stylists, Ricky’s NYC plays host to a diverse, cult-like following of clientele.
A veritable one stop super shop for everything beauty Ricky’s NYC transcends trends while inspiring and emphasizing individuality. With products ranging from professional hair care to temporary tattoos, Ricky’s NYC’s eclectic offerings make headlines and grace the pages of major beauty publications every month. Ricky’s NYC is synonymous with style, sensibility and funky sophistication.
Here’s how dievca describes it:
dievca used to be able to go into Ricky’s and buy SweetSpot Labs Grapefruit personal wipes, a Chi Hair Straightener, Spanx Tights, a Rabbit Vibrator, Penis Straws and Murad Pomegranate Extract Face Cleaner:
Following in the footsteps of his father, operator of drugstores called Love, Ricky Kenig opened the first Ricky’s NYC in 1989 with his brother Todd, who, by his own account, built the retailer to 28 stores and $55 million in revenues by 2012. Ricky’s NYC is now controlled by a private owner declining to be named. Lisa Aquilino is now the President. Her mission has been to restructure Ricky’s slowly and gently to become a better version of itself. Prior to Aquilino, the president’s role at Ricky’s NYC was occupied by Michael Long, Dominick Costello and Richard Parrott.
That said, the Ricky’s on the UWS seemed to be re-organizing its floor space and consolidating. The “sex shop” part was no longer in existence and dievca didn’t see a Hair Salon – but not all Ricky’s have hair salons. There was an extensive “sale” area which allowed dievca to pick-up some expensive skin care items for less and made her smile with this Beauty & Pin-Up Haircare line on sale:
Something excellent for the 1950’s Household Kink submissive.

dievca is not a cook, she bakes…
she WILL be cooking today because 5 friends are coming for dinner.
They are a “Meat and Potato” crowd, so she is keeping it simple:
- Fresh Vegetables with Dip, Cheese Plate and Chardonnay for Appetizers on the rooftop
- Baked Pork Chops (bone in), Green Beans, Rice and Norman Cidre for the Main Course
- Lemon Meringue Pie and Pinot Grigio or Coffee/Tea for Dessert
Wish her luck, but dievca does have a secondary strategy: Distraction via Clothing
And Plan C: Pizza and Beer
Zahra Norbo (born February 7, 1934) is a Swedish model. She was Playboy magazine’s Playmate of the Month for the March 1958 issue. Her centerfold was photographed by Tom Caffrey.
Norbo was Miss Sweden 1955 or 1956 (see below) and a popular pin-up model in men’s magazines and all-around popular magazine model who appeared in publications like Spick, Stag, Tempo and Tiger.
It has been reported, that Zahra, though she will oblige photographers by peeling down to a bikini, definitely would not disrobe no further. “I would feel uncomfortable,” she was quoted as saying.
She also scored a few television appearances, notably on The Groucho Marx Show. There’s a bit of confusion about which year she was Miss Sweden. Some sources, Wikipedia among them, say it was 1956, but there is a 1956 press photo that refers to her as the earlier year’s winner.
Here is what Playboy said in her March 1958 layout: “After copping the Miss Sweden title three years ago, Miss Norbo came to the U.S. of A.” That pretty much settles it 😘 —she won her title in 1955 using her real name Ragnhild Olausson.
These provocative shots were made in 1957 by acclaimed lensman, Peter Basch.
Thinking of you,
Wishing you well,
May the year 2018 treat you right!

The French phrase oh là là isn’t so much an expression as an interjection. It can indicate surprise, disappointment, commiseration, distress, annoyance… any moderately strong reaction to something that was just said or done. Note that there is no connotation of sexiness or impropriety in French.*
It can be strengthened with added là‘s, always in pairs.
(*This expression is often used in English to talk about something risqué. It tends to be misspelled and mispronounced “ooh la la,” usually said slowly and with the first word comically elongated.)
