  • The Everyday Excellence Awards

    Why do award shows mean so much to us? The Golden Globes, the Screen Actors Guild, the Grammys, the Oscars, it’s as if our world comes screeching to a halt once that red carpet rolls out. We sit awestruck, watching …

  • Women Roar, Even When They Cook

  • Book Review: The World Wreckers (Marion Zimmer Bradley)

    My friend Dianne Kopser is an avid reader—a woman truly after my own heart! So I invited her to do a guest post here and talk about one of the few genres I don’t read—science fiction: “Darkover, a cold planet with …

  • Book Review: Trans-Siberian Express

    I’m a sucker for trains, so I was attracted to the Trans-Siberian Express by its title alone. But Adler—best known for his examination of the inner working of human nature—shows here that not only can he handle thrillers, he’s able …

  • Merry Kitschmas to ALL
