Indiaaaaana, you old banana….

So! I just got back from my visit to Indianapolis. I cannot even put into words how wonderful it was. I hadn’t been home in so, so long. A ridiculously long time. How did I go nearly 2 years without seeing my family in Indiana? And it wasn’t enough time, even though I could have… Continue reading Indiaaaaana, you old banana….

2012 Year in Review

1. What did you do in 2012 that you’d never done before? I attended the midnight premiere of a movie (The Hunger Games), I watched the Twilight movies (so bad, so very very bad), I ate and enjoyed avocado/guacamole and I watched many many episodes of Star Trek The Next Generation. 2.

Not liberal, not conservative, but interested in reporting stories… Continue reading A few words on journalism…

Before the concert, we went to dinner at… Continue reading 20 Years Ago Today…
