A Whole Human Life

“Robin Williams was an airman, a doctor, a genie, a nanny, a president, a professor, a bangarang Peter Pan, and everything in between. But he was one of a kind. He arrived in our lives as an alien – but he ended up touching every element of the human spirit. He made us laugh. He...

Youthletic — Find the Right Sport for Your Child

My boys have suddenly fallen in love with sports of all kinds.  For the longest time I despaired of ever earning the title ‘Soccer Mom’ but now I find myself hauling gear and kids to soccer games, basketball games, and more.  That soccer mom title almost eluded me, though, simply because I had the world’s...

NKY Hates Heroin Music Fest

Sadly, if you live in the Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky area you know that there is a heroin epidemic sweeping through our area.  It does not discriminate by age or IQ or tax bracket, is cheap and easy to procure, and is killing people.  So many people I know have had their lives turned...

The Carnegie presents The Sound Of Music

Growing up in the stone ages (back before DVR’s or even VCR’s) I had to wait ALL year for my favorite shows.  There were some movies that you just knew would be on at a certain time of year and it was a big event to get to watch them (and often stay up a...
