PAWSibilities of Cats

Last month, my girlfriend got a cat.  I want to be as welcoming to this new addition to her family as possible, but there still seems to be a little tension between the cat and I.  Being the human in this human-feline “relationship”, I know I will need to decode all that secret kitty body

Start a Conversation on a Cup of Coffee and Make a Memory

I think coffee is one of Mother Nature’s gifts to humanity.   I am not a huge coffee drinker myself, but I enjoy it when I do have it.  And if one thinks about it, coffee is a global phenomenon.  It is a life style for many.  It supports economies all over the world, I mean

Up Your Gifting Game

My own experiences in getting a gift has resulted in my gift shopping being reduced to a pile of plastic.  I often wonder what people use to do before gift cards.  Beauty is definitely in the eye of the beholder.  For instance, I bought a shirt for Matt last Christmas that I have never seen

The Show Me State

They call Missouri the Show Me State, and sometimes I feel like I am from Missouri myself. I have a busy life and sometimes I just do not have time to even shop for what I need, much less figure out what my friends want for their birthday, Christmas, Hanukkah, graduation, or anniversary.   I
