Here’s the thing, this is the most fascinating article I’ve read all week. Go! Read! Click on the blue letters at the bottom of the page! Carl Reiner, actor, 92, at his home in Beverly Hills, Calif. Reiner published his second memoir, ‘‘I Just Remembered,’’ this year. What advice to you have for younger people in show business? The best thing I ever did was marry correctly.

After recent events I’ve been keeping to myself. I too, seem to be ensconced on the sofa. But instead of my hands being genteelly folded in my lap, they are skittering over this keyboard. I have draped myself here in a manner most regal, I do not like to be pinned to one spot, I like to move…but sometimes, darlings, babies, doves, that is not such a good thing.

Pictured behind the ladies is the head of the Fashion Department at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts, Walter Van Beirendonck, Graphics Professor Yvonne Dekock, and a designer who turned up for the school’s anniversary, the amazing —Diane Von Furstenberg. I usually don’t go the fashion route here at Beguiling, but The Kid is back home from the Academy and I am kind of doing the backstroke through a sea of contentment. I have […]

An artist’s concept of Kepler-186f. (NASA Ames/SETI Institute/JPL-Caltech) Right now, 500 light years away from Earth, there’s a planet that looks a lot like our own. It is bathed in dim orangeish light, which at high noon is only as bright as the golden hour before sunset back home. NASA scientists are calling the planet Kepler-186f, and it’s unlike anything they’ve found. The big news: Kepler-186f is the closest relative to the Earth that researchers have discovered. It’s the first […]
