    Better yet, “bring me the squadron of poorly paid underlings who ‘stage’ my house and clean up the mess after. Just don’t expect me to dip into my stock portfolio.”

    She has a staff working for her. From a recent blog:

    To stay organized during seasonal transitions at my Bedford, New York farm, we always follow a schedule of tasks from one year to the next. This week, my outdoor grounds crew is busy wrapping the boxwood in protective burlap, cleaning up the garden beds, and pruning various trees. Fortunately, the weather has allowed us time to ready the property for the cold season ahead. We just finished pruning the long row of Osage orange trees along the fence of one of my horse paddocks. The Osage orange, Macular pomifera, is more commonly known as a hedge apple, bow wood, or bodark. The fruit is wrinkly and bumpy in appearance, and considered inedible because of the texture and taste, but they’re very interesting and fun to grow.

    I like that the magazine name is “LIVING?” with a question mark. If you must look outside yourself for approval, you’ll never truly know happiness.

    A lot of people feel that way — even those who don’t read the magazine.

    Martha Stewart is to those of us who enjoy playing house, the same as the clothing designers to those who enjoy clothing. We might have fun doing some of the stuff she suggests, just as a woman might enjoy wearing designer clothing, but they read the magazine dressed in sweats or jeans.

    Horse paddocks on her farm. Good. Push it further. Master using an Equine Therapeutic approach for special needs kids. Quite amazing what you can do to turn around special needs kids. That requires working with the kid’s doctor, parents, school teachers and trainers. As for the rest – a social climber out to impress.
