The Week In Seven Photos

After three years of “The Week In Seven Photos” series, maybe it’s time to switch things up and create a weekly “Welcome To My Rant” series.  It was nice this week to not be the only one floating in the middle of the lake ranting about the state of the world or how crowded the…

Tuesday Tunes – Brown Eyed Girl

Sometimes after a refreshing Pear, Apple and Cinnamon Margarita and delicious Cubano Nachos, with Jimmy Buffett lyrics swirling around in my head, I can close my brown eyes while daydreaming by swirling warm snow and almost imagine that I’m standing in the sand on a tropical beach. Unfortunately, I’m quickly brought back to my winter…
