And so it goes!

Super Bowl Weekend

For those who follow this American tradition we salute you. Those of us who are bookworms shall recline in quiet reflection while we attempt to figure out the impossible: will she or won’t she; did he really do it; and a favorite will they stay in love forever. The magic […]


Thank Goodness It’s Thursday!

My Thoughts
