Sax and the City

It’s no secret that I love music. I’ve written about barbershop and Billy Idol, and if you ever meet me in person, both of those things will definitely come up in conversation at least once. About a year ago a friend of mine posted a video on her facebook and a new obsession was born. […]

This particular dating website provides scheduled get togethers for subscribers to meet a group of other singles in the right age range. These events are anything from scavenger […]

Sushi for the Driven Soul

I love Netflix. If you haven’t gathered that from a few of my previous posts, it bears repeating. You can find entertainment, education, and nearly everything in between. Recently I watched a documentary called Jiro Dreams of Sushi. Yes, it is about a man who makes sushi for a living, but it had an unexpected […]
