Let’s Talk Baggage

Anne Middleton
July 29th, 2015

The next time a prospective love interest asks you if you have baggage, unflappably say “Yes, and I love to travel.”  If you’re at the crux of a burgeoning relationship whether you’re contemplating whether to make the long haul or not, it might be time to take a road trip and bring your baggage with you.  And no, this is not your psycho-emotional, shrink-worthy baggage.  A road trip offers a few things:  long hours together alone (to see if any homicidal ideations pop up) and getting out of your comfort zone (helps you to keep it real).  Now let’s talk baggage.

July 29th, 2015

We’ve all been lectured on the cliché “patience is a virtue.”  Most people strive for this lofty goal, but it can be grueling to achieve. It’s easy to become frustrated, irritated and edgy when people push your buttons. For a lucky minority, patience is a natural state of mind.  They project a zen-like aura in stressful circumstances that make them the envy of others in this fast-paced, unforgiving world.

Not Your Parent’s Ice Cream Anymore…

July 27th, 2015

National Ice Cream Day was July 19th! Grab some extra napkins and get ready to indulge! Growing up, many of us would saunter down to the local drug store and procure a simple vanilla ice cream cone for a quarter. And hearing the sweet sounding music of the ice cream truck rounding the corner caused us to run boundlessly with joy toward this magical vehicle. Ah, the nostalgia and fond memories! Then we thought we all went to heaven when Baskin-Robbins stores opened, offering 31 flavors.  In these days of yore, no one could have imagined the explosion of frozen treat sales. Now, the U.S.
