Dana lives in Seattle, and Tracie lives in Germany. We are businesswomen, writers and humorists. We write about life, dating, and today's modern women.

So You Think You Know?

I have always been curious.

  It’s the eve of my birthday. As I look at this baby picture of me, I’m sure I was looking at the photographer thinking what is that machine that is flashing in my face?

As a baby, my daddy nicknamed me Louella Parsons the famed American movie columnist as I always wanted to know who, what, where, when and why.  No guest left our house unscathed of my inquiries.  As my friends who know me today, the same rules apply.  I apologize publicly to any prospects trying to date my girls, as I will get to the bottom of your story.

We should never stop learning.  When you are green you grow, and when you are ripe you rot. Daily, I challenge myself to learn something new.  So, just as my sister and co-blogger Tracie gives you things for your tool box, I will share questions to see what you really know or think you know.

On average, we forget 80 percent of what we learn on any given day…

So, the way I see it, that leaves more room in our brains to keep learning and stay curious.
