Thursday Thoughts

Just because your swing isn’t a home run doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take the swing. Let me give you an example. Just because it is not sunny all day, every day doesn’t mean you should not invest in a solar panel system for your home. It also isn’t always windy. Maybe the tides aren’t going […]

Wendy's Breakfast

Breakfast at Wendy’s; Follow Up

I recently posted about the new Wendy’s breakfast menu and the pictures I shared were total garbage – probably a result of me touching the camera lens with a greasy finger! So of course, in the name of journalist integrity, I had to try more of the Wendy’s breakfast menu. You know, just to get […]

Taking a Social Media Break

Funny thing happened in late January; I decided to take a social media break – I took a hiatus from social media. My desire to take a little break was not because of the Faceplant whistleblower event that demonstrated that FB cares more about profits than about their user’s mental health. Nope.
