Goodbye, Good Girl by Renee Blossom

Goodbye, Good Girl by Renee Blossom My rating: 2 of 5 stars I really wanted to like this. So many teenagers and children have absent parents. So when a young woman sets off on a quest to rescue her father from perceived life-threatening danger, it’s an incredibly promising story. Kandace sets off after an event […]

2017 Milwaukee Air Show

We just got back from watching the Blue Angels at the Milwaukee Air show. It was great. I’ve been a fan of the Blue Angels since I was a kid, but until now I’ve only ever seen them on TV. I even had a Blue Angels calendar once! I got some pretty good shots and […]

Brother by Ania Ahlborn

Brother by Ania Ahlborn My rating: 4 of 5 stars Awesome Thriller Wow. This was a great thriller. As I was explaining to others, it’s like a great episode of Criminal Minds, but more demented. I expected it to be crazy but I’m surprised at how for it went. The way each plot point was […]

The Passage by Justin Cronin

The Passage by Justin Cronin My rating: 4 of 5 stars This was really engaging and somewhat satisfying at the end. For being part of a trilogy, it was long. I think there were parts that could’ve been condensed and it was confusing about how the characters in the beginning were relevant to the story […]

We talked about it and she clarified. A green smoothie has sweet greens (my favorite is baby spinach), frozen […]

It’s That Time of the Year Again

With the new year and so many people concentrating on their resolutions to lose weight and get in shape, in addition to all the other improvements that people have committed to, we could use some resources to help us stay focused. And some encouragement. Inspiration. Motivation. One of my favorite comics to illustrate this was […]

God I Hate Country Music

At least, that’s what I thought. With the exception of the classic artists I grew up listening to and the exceptional album here or there, country music just pisses me off. The vocalists throw extra twang affectation into their voices every time they open their mouths. They write about the same boring, repetitiveĀ things using the […]
