We got into a spirited disagreement on The Big Show on Monday.
How can it be that we as humans have been peeling bananas the wrong way our whole lives?
This week’s randt appears to have touched a lot of nerves. Thanks to Facebook, it’s now possible to make all of your friends feel bad at once because they can’t get away to sun and surf during the deep, dark days of winter! But it’s the way those photos and status updates are presented that …

The ways of a kitty-cat are not entirely unfamiliar to me.
And it’s good news!
Free-FM’s commercial and imaging producer Rob brought a recipe to our attention and if hubby had his way he would ask me to make it every day.
