In sum, because I'm forty-nine years old and I'm still a tomboy.

Iíd rather be outside than in. I like getting dirty. I like to sweat. And dresses are icky. Nothingís changed since I was a very young girl. Iíve always been a tomboy and I will be a tomboy on my deathbed.

OK

When you try to break up with your psycho lover and she fucking freaks, tearing the window shades down and kicking out the screen to jump out of the window and go running off in the rain -- go after her.

Here's some worse advice: break up with your psycho lover.

Ragtime

It was the first show I saw, and I was so moved by it all that I cried the whole way through.

Especially moving are "The Night That Goldman Spoke at Union Square," "Till We Reach That Day," "What A Game" (for the baseball fan) and my favorite, "He Wanted To Say."

Don't miss it.

When is it time to trim a redbud?

We have a small redbud. We gave it up for dead a few years ago, but last year it came back to life. We neglected it, but I want to take care of it.

I know nothing about caring for trees. It has several branches that are low to the ground and more little branches continue up the scrawny little trunk. I sense that these need to be cut off, but I'm not sure. And if they need to be cut off, I don't know when to do it.

Can you offer some advice, please? Thanks.
