I have to tell you about this absolutely gorgeous blanket I'm curled under tonight--because its a baby blanket! I received this sample for review and set it aside thinkiing, "yeah, I'll get to it." But tonight, watching nothingness on TV, surfing the web, my feet got cold. And I spotted that blanket in my pile of "yeah, I'll get to its." So, I … [Read more...]

The best thing about Barenaked Ladies music and concerts were how fun they were. Some of my fondest concert doing days include watching them on the pier in San Francisco, or … [Read more...]
