Well, it’s been a great year — at least in some ways — and here’s to the even better one upcoming.
Resolutions include: back up your data, eradicate disease, embrace diversity, keep hope alive (stem cell research could work a miracle for you, too!) – and more (be even nicer to those around you, although […]
Yesterday, I offered Moxie, the free (or 99-cent deluxe) iPhone app that has me strategizing where to put the Q and – hint alert – always to put the first E at the end, preceded by the first S, to set myself up for GOOSE, MOOSE, LOUSE and MOUSE (when I’m playing with the […]

REINDEER ANTLER GIRLS
