I was, for all intents and purposes, on fire. This, this leading a classroom of students to knowledge, was what I wanted to do....more

Have Fun and Save Time by Creating a Beauty Routine

Oh, the dreaded resolution. Things you really want to do, and usually have every intention of implementing, but somehow, they bite the dust. When it comes to my appearance, I’m learning that I have to put more effort in. I don’t know how many times there has been some huge event I’ve attended, and it took me five hours to prepare instead of two. Why? Because I didn’t have a regimen that included the steps below. So, here are a few things that I’m hoping to become better at. 1. Use a skin polisher regularly ...more

What's the Scariest Movie You've Ever Seen?

Time to talk about things that go bump in the night.  It's Halloween, so we'd like to ask about the scariest movie you've ever seen.  Was it "Jaws" when the hapless skinny dipper was yanked in the dark by an unseen Great White shark?  Was it actor John Hurt in the movie "Alien", having a really, really bad case of indigestion?  Maybe ghost stories make you want to scream your head off?...more
