Making the Switch

Capital City Weekly - Tue, 01/13/2015 - 9:55pm
Life is about change. That old adage "change is constant" is so true. Annoying, but true nonetheless. I tend to like change. It keeps things from getting dull. Some have said that I'm predictable.

The Ruthless self-assessment of 'One Hot Mess'

Capital City Weekly - Tue, 01/13/2015 - 9:55pm
I love Libby Bakalar's blog "One Hot Mess," ( It's not immediately apparent why. Demographically, we have little in common.
