As I’ve been getting ready the last several mornings, the song “Life is a Highway” keeps coming on the radio. I’m sure that most of you probably think that my radio station is rather behind the times, but its not. They just seem to have some affinity for that song.

Gone With the Wind is easily one of my favorite books. I’m fascinated by the Civil War, and the depth of the love between Rhett and Scarlett sweeps me away – even if things don’t work out in the end. Maybe its because I read the book for the first time when I was 12 […]

I’m not really sure why other magazines don’t follow the lead of Men’s Health. I love that magazine, even though I’m definitely not a man, and not all that interested in the health of men. Thanks to my friend Amanda for sending me this: The E-mail To-Don’t List.

They produce what’s called a “sister polar body” when they produce an egg, which can then bond to the egg and create baby sharks.

I’ve got a friend or 2 that work for a companies that are hemmoraging employees. Every time I talk to them, it seems as if they’re going to another going-away lunch, or cross-training to take over someone’s role. After a while, and enough stories about what its like to work at these places, I realize […]
