Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry Campaign: Ways you can help support the cause

The statistics surrounding childhood hunger are staggering … 1 out of 5 K-8 teachers say they regularly see children come to school hungry. 16 million kids (that equals 1 out of 5) in America live in a household without consistent access to adequate and nutritious food. More than 20 million kids get free or reduced-price […]

Loews Sapphire Falls Resort to open at Universal Orlando in 2016

The Caribbean is coming to Orlando. Universal Orlando, to be exact. I love a good theme, and if I can’t be in the actual Caribbean, staying somewhere that looks like the Caribbean is the next best thing. Being so close to the magic of Universal’s theme parks (which includes Harry Potter, Diagon Alley and Hogwarts) […]

Blogging About Blenders

Move over Hamilton Beach and Cuisinart, there’s a new blender in town.  It’s big and it’s colorful and it’s branded by Buffett. Now, I’m not one to wax poetic about kitchen appliances.  Or cooking in general, for that matter.  You will rarely see me writing about recipes or anything that requires me having to prepare […]

My Mission to Margaritaville

Once upon a time, I sold t-shirts for Jimmy Buffett. We workers in the Merchandise department at Kings Dominion were responsible for that type of thing at concerts…. that little stand where consenting consumers happily hand over their cash to purchase t-shirts, decals, buttons, hats, etc…etc… As a seventeen-year-old, it was a pretty cool deal […]
