We have received reports about a suspected fraudulent email claiming to be from QVC and asking customers to reply and update their information. This is spam email, known as a “phishing” e-mail, and was NOT sent by QVC. “Phishing” is the use of deception to cause you to give your personal information to an unauthorized person. The email below gives the appearance that it is from QVC.COM and it requests that customers click a link and enter sensitive personal information.

I was born in Hungary at a time when life was bleak, with not much for a child to do except study. So, that’s what I did. I studied physics, chemistry, biology, Latin, English, and German. Studying made me feel like I had a connection to the world.
My first experience with skin care occurred when I was nine years old and my aunt began to make her famous bee pollen face cream for the ladies in the neighborhood. Of course I was right there “helping” her. This was when my early passion for developing skin care began. During the time of Communis... Continue Reading

Do you remember just a few short weeks ago when we started the year off by getting back to “normal”? QVC themed it, “getting back to Ahh.” I even changed my Facebook picture to a more “laid back” me to remind myself to slow down a bit and not sweat the small stuff. One of my resolutions was to be Less Stressed; More relaxed. (My 12 year old would say…”be Chill, Mom”---still not sure how “chill” = relaxed?!?!) Well, my family CLEARLY did not get the memo on my 2012 commitment to me. In fact, last we... Continue Reading

It’s hard to believe another Christmas is nearly upon us! Every year it seems to come sooner than the last, and by December 26 I’m ready to take the decorations down! My friend Valerie Parr Hill has a good suggestion for decorating (which she shared in the November InsideQ): “Spread it over a few weeks; that way it’s less daunting and you have more time to enjoy your decorations before they have to come down again.” This is a great idea for taking the decorations down as well.

Growing up the middle child between two sisters was not always easy. There was the usual sibling rivalry, and at any given time it was me and my older sister against my younger sister, me and my younger sister against my older sister, or (worst-case scenario for me) both my sisters would gang up on me!
My older sister, Tracee, reigned supreme for four years before I came along. Needless to say, she wasn’t as happy as my parents were when I was born. Mom tells stories of how Tracee tried to get rid of me (for example, by having me tie the window blinds cord around my neck and ... Continue Reading

Back in the early 1990s my wife and I purchased a beautiful new two-story townhome. We had been living with our toddler son in a three-room condo, and moving into a three-bedroom townhome was liberating, to say the least. Because we had it built, we were able to make modifications to the floor plan, and one of the things I wanted was a formal living room. You know, the kind you had as a kid and weren’t allowed into except on holidays? We installed white carpeting and double doors (which remained closed most of the time so my son wouldn’t wander in). I painted the room a... Continue Reading

Anyone who thinks modeling is easy should try it sometime. Sure, it looks like all models have to do is pose and look pretty, but it’s not as easy as they make it seem. I’m not a model (obviously!), but many years ago as a tall, slim youth with a 27-inch waist, everyone used to tell me I could be one. So I trekked to Philadelphia with a friend for an “interview” at a well-known modeling school. During this interview my fingernails were inspected (and deemed “needs help”) and I was asked to walk up and down a hall. What could be easier than walkin... Continue Reading

To that end, in 2009 I stated I would compete in 50 triathlons in all 50 states by age 50 (by 2013) to raise $100,000 for ovarian cancer research and OCRF and a campaign was born.
