My mom sent me the email version of Regina Brett’s 44 Life Lessons which made me google Regina Brett to explore the truth. Looks like email version ended up playing the Telephone Game (you know, where the phrase that started out ends up so different at the end of the line) – 44 dropped one of the 45 and then it became 50! Regina is a real person and a very remarkable one at that! Click on her name here and you’ll go to her website. She is not 90 years old! The list is now up to 50 – which she made into 50 when she became 50 years old. She is an award-winning columnist for The Plain Dealer in Cleveland, Ohio. She talks about this Life Lessons column on her website as it is her most famous column. I really enjoy her blog as well. Do check it out!
