Seen It: Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates

This movie was an unexpected pickup on a bad day and I honestly needed a movie to make me laugh. As far as that’s concerned, it was an excellent choice for a laugh.

The Greeks and their belief in the Gods that only had as much power as they believed the Gods had. Now, they’re myth, fiction, in the modern world. This book,…

Eating Out: CrêpeWorx

The other day I was driving over near Winchester and thought I would stop downtown to walk around. The walking mall is my favorite part of Winchester. It’s not totally unique but rare enough in my travels. I love a town that has a street blocked off for people to walk around and truly enjoy it.
