Momma’s Boy -- Daddy’s Girl

A Discerning Palate

Giving Thanks

Where Have All The Sitcoms Gone?

September 28, 2010 I don’t watch much television these days. I don’t really have time for it, but most importantly I don’t usually have control over the programming my set offers. more »»

Always Busy

September 21, 2010 It seems like we’re always busy. . . 24/7/365. I bet you know the feeling. There is always something to do or somewhere to go, or both. more »»
