A Lovely and Low-Priced Treasure

As a bargain hunter, I check out Woot, ThingFling, 1SaleADay and Groupon daily. Each of these sites, if you’re not familiar, feature different sales on a range of products each day.

With the long weekend coming up, my coworkers and I decided we wanted to grill for lunch this afternoon.

I brought in chips and made southwest quinoa.  Southwest … Continue reading

The Lovely First Lady

No doubt their monthly beer dinners have something to do with it. This month, Unibroue was once again the featured brewery. Reasons why … Continue reading

$44K donation to GMHC made possible by WBC

Comedian/Queen of Mean Lisa Lampanelli can certainly be a little hard to take, but her heart is so clearly in the right place. After finding out that the awful, inappropriate and totally evil Westboro Baptist Church (where’s a Rapture when you need one?) would be protesting one of her shows, she pledged to donate $1,000 … Continue reading

The Rapture-less Weekend
