599x327xBelayCords-plugged-in.jpg.pagespeed.ic.akV-exsvkP

 

Please tell me I’m not the only one. I have never, and I do mean never, inserted a USB plug the right way on the first try. Not once. Not even when I look at it first, because invariably the port is the opposite way of how I …

Junk-Press-andrew-simpson-1.jpg.662x0_q100_crop-scale

There are days when all I find in my mailbox is junk mail. Coupons for products I’ll never buy, ads for businesses I’ve never heard of, and this time of year 847 political flyers per day. I don’t dare miss a day cleaning out the box, though, because I shudder …

evermind

An ageing population brings about concerns for their well-being, while at the same time it’s hard for us to see our parents or grandparents as often as we’d like. It’s not uncommon for folks to go months without seeing their parents, or weeks without talking to them. If your elderly …

spreadthat-butter-knife-3-650x365

One thing I refuse to compromise on, regardless of how many people or studies tell me it’s unhealthy, is butter. Real butter. Not margarine, not butter-like spreads… butter. There is always a stick in a glass dish on my counter, almost all year-round. But in the summer it tends to …
