1. Mojitos - The Perfect Rum Drink
Mojitos - The Perfect Rum Drink
I didn't discover mojito's until a few years ago, and I cannot believe it took me that long to find this incredible drink. I have long been a fan of rum over all other spirits, and this tropical delight fits so well into my beverage repertoire, that it's like it was invented just for ...

2. Top 10 Tiki Bars
Top 10 Tiki Bars
A tiki is, by definition, a likeness of a Polynesian god, usually carved in wood or stone.  Polynesia represented mystery and exuded exotic allure to mainstream America in the mid-20th century.  The country was recovering from war and looking for a bright and happy escape.   With dressed up food ...

3. World Lizard Day
World Lizard Day
According to the Earth Calendar, August 14, 2012, will be World Lizard Day.  So, how shall we celebrate the lizard?  Let's start with learning a little more about them, looking at some cool lizard pictures, and buying a book about them.

4. What To Do With All Those Seashells?
What To Do With All Those Seashells?
If you're like me, you find it very difficult to return home from a beach vacation without at least a few shells.  And, generally I lug home way more than "a few".  And, this is all great and wonderful, I love seashells and love having them around me.  But, eventually, you've got to figure out so...

5. Mowgli
I loved Mowgli long before I saw the Disney movie.  As a character in Rudyard Kipling's "The Jungle Book" I was fascinated with this wild boy.  I often wondered how cool it must have been to have been raised by wolves and to have a panther and a bear as your best friends.  The Disney movie did no...

7. Mark Harmon
Mark Harmon
I first remember seeing Mark Harmon on St. Elsewhere.  I was a goner from the first episode he walked into.  This is an infatuation that has lasted over the years - through "Chicago Hope" and "Reasonable Doubts", through "Summer School" and "The Presidio".  Right up until now when I can get my Ma...

8. Captain Jack Sparrow
Captain Jack Sparrow
Captain Jack Sparrow. Just writing his name makes me smile, because it makes me think of all the things about him that I love. Such a pirate as I have never seen before or since.  Sparrow represents an ethical pirate. Mind you that he would not be very happy to hear himself be called that - not ...

9. Television Witches Over The Years
Television Witches Over The Years
I can remember watching Samantha Stephens on "Bewitched" and wishing that I could be her.  Oh, to be able to twitch my nose and have things happen for me.  Needless to say, that wasn't a wish that ever came true, but that never stopped me from watching.  (Still doesn't, thanks to reruns.)  I neve...

10. Sunnydale, California
Sunnydale, California
Sunnydale, California - idyllic location, beautiful scenery, close to Los Angeles, great shopping.  Here in Sunnydale, they have everything you could possibly want.  Oh yeah -- and they have The Hellmouth also.

11. Don Johnson
Don Johnson
I admit it - there was a time in my life that it was not possible to have a Friday night without having an episode of "Miami Vice".  I think there were a lot of things about that show to like (including some seriously good music of the day) -- but, I admit that the reason for my fascination was D...

12. Carrie Fisher
Carrie Fisher
My first exposure to Carrie Fisher was as Princess Leia Organa in the Star Wars movies.  And, I thought she was pretty awesome from just those movies.  But, over the years, following both her acting and her writing career -- my admiration for this lady has grown exponentially.  She is amazingly t...

13. Dilbert
Dilbert can almost always make me smile - and quite often gets an actual out loud laugh.  He understands life in a cubicle and is trying to get through it as best he can.  Follow along and learn a bit more about this long suffering engineer:

14. Nash Bridges
Nash Bridges
Nash Bridges is an all around great guy that I wish I knew.  He's a great police detective, a good son, a devoted father, a kind ex-husband, a really good dresser, and a good leader to his squad of detectives.  Sound good?  Read on:

15. Frasier - The TV Show
Frasier - The TV Show
Dr. Frasier Crane was so much funnier to me once he moved to Seattle and settled in to his own show.  The characters and the dialogue of this series were the epitome of perfection for an ensemble cast show.  These were shows that could legitimately make me laugh out loud and giggle uncontrollably...

16. Stow, Ohio : A City Guide
Stow, Ohio : A City Guide
I've lived in Stow, Ohio for a large part of my life.  I have to tell you, this is a wonderful small town to call home.  There are about 30,000 other folks that call Stow home and we have it all here.  The town is in Summit County, and is about halfway between Cleveland and Akron.  State Route 8 ...

17. Flamingos!
Flamingos fascinate me.  Whether they're the real ones strutting around on their goofy legs, or the wonderful plastic ones proudly standing in my yard -- they are a universal symbol of all that is tropical, and can always make me smile.  So, what's the deal with these icons of front yard kitsch? ...

18. Classic Halloween Monsters
Classic Halloween Monsters
Halloween. You can't have it without a few classics. Even if you make a cartoon out of them and put a pretty smile on their faces - you're still going to have a time honored cast of characters at your Halloween, or it isn't going to be quite right. Who do I mean? Well, you have to have werewolve...

19. Set A Spooky Table...
Set A Spooky Table...
So, you've got the gravestones in the front yard, the skeleton is hanging from the tree, and the cobwebs are strewn about eerily.  You have the paper witch and black cat cut outs on the windows and doors, and the creepy candles are lit.  What are you missing?  Well, to be honest, your kitchen is...

20. Akron, Ohio : The City Of Invention
Akron, Ohio : The City Of Invention
Akron, OH?  What could be there?  Well, I was born and raised in Akron and just wait until you see what is to be discovered.  For years, Akron's claim to fame was that it was The Rubber Capital of the World (Minds out of the gutters, please, people!  It had that distinction because it was home to...

21. Nuts About Coconut
Nuts About Coconut
Yes, well, bad pun aside, the sentiment is genuine: I love all things coconut. It evokes great memories for me (having a drink of coconut water at an outdoor market from a fresh split coconut, for example), and just plain tastes good. I hope to use this page to explore more about coconuts and all...

22. The Rocky Horror Picture Show
The Rocky Horror Picture Show
I remember my first time at "The Rocky Horror Picture Show".  I went with a bunch of friends who had all already been and they took great care of me.  It was the best time ever, I think I smiled for two days.  The audience definitely makes the show when you go see it.  Yes, you can buy a video of...

23. My Top Ten Favorite Movies - On DVD
My Top Ten Favorite Movies - On DVD
I love movies - I can't help it.  And I love owning them too.  I should be embarrassed to tell you how many I have on my bookshelves - but the truth is I've lost count a long time ago.  To come up with a Top Ten List, I had to come up with some rules: to be on this list I have to own it, and no s...

24. C-3PO: The Neediest Droid Ever
C-3PO: The Neediest Droid Ever
Somebody else always has to get poor C-3PO out of the latest jam he has gotten himself into.  The nice thing about Threepio is he knows he is not a hero or a great warrior and would much rather stay at home.  That just never works out for him.

25. Limes - The Best Citrus
Limes - The Best Citrus
Okay, maybe the rest of the world thinks of oranges or lemons first when they think of citrus. Not me. For me it is limes. I love their color, their flavor, everything. They look cool and they taste even better. Want to learn more? Follow along with me...

26. USMC Silent Drill Platoon Video Showcase
USMC Silent Drill Platoon Video Showcase
I have never served in the United States Marine Corps. But, I am proud to say that I know a number of people who have. And I have always had the deepest possible respect and admiration for those that serve - past and present. The videos in this showcase are of a very elite group of those proud m...

27. Grace Kelly
Grace Kelly
Grace Kelly.  Even just her name is elegant.  And, that is not even taking into account her work or her life.  Her success in films meant a lot to her, and she walked away from that for love and marriage...and to be a princess.  Her life has always (it seems like always) fascinated me.  Keep read...

28. Be A Sweetheart - Make Valentine's Day Cookies
Be A Sweetheart - Make Valentine's Day Cookies
When all else fails, nothing can beat a homemade treat as a gift. And, of all the things that you can make, cookies have to be at the top of the list. And, at the top of my list of cookies are cut out cookies that I get to decorate. Here are some great recipes, and some fun kitchen tools for you...

29. Mint For Your Home
Mint For Your Home
I love mint. And, when I think about it, I have loved it all my life. I remember as a kid, mowing the yard, and smelling the mint as I ran over it. It wasn't a bad thing that I got in trouble for - the mint had simply taken over part of the yard and consistently got mowed down. Flash forward to ...

30. The West Wing - The Series
The West Wing - The Series
The West Wing was, and is, one of my all time favorite TV shows.  It had the best combination of a great ensemble cast and terrific writing.  There wasn't a single episode that didn't have at least one moment of pure joy to watch. I'm not the only one who felt this way about the show:  West Wing ...

31. Valentine, Texas
Valentine, Texas
Well, if Cupid was looking to relocate to somewhere quiet and out of the way, he might have chosen Valentine, TX as his new base of operations. The 2000 census said that there were 187 folks living there -- not counting Cupid, as far as we can determine. But, he has some helpers there that have ...

32. The Poinsettia
The Poinsettia
No matter how you pronounce "poinsettia", you know what it is.  It also is one of my favorite symbols of Christmas and the Christmas season.  I can't imagine decorating for the holiday without including many poinsettias throughout my house  --  they are so beautiful and versatile.  I've found so...

33. Quentin Tarantino
Quentin Tarantino
I went to see Pulp Fiction when it first hit the theatres.  Seems an odd choice for a movie to take a date to, doesn't it?  Well, it wasn't.  I was hooked immediately!  Seriously, this was a very dark movie, a very violent movie, a movie that dropped the "F" bomb more times than I had ever heard ...

34. Leia Organa Solo
Leia Organa Solo
Princess Leia had my respect and awe from the very first time I saw her up on the big screen in the theater.  Wow.  What a woman she was.  Statesman, diplomat, ruler, and a really good fighter besides.  She is lovely and principled and kind and generous and really quite funny.  What's not to love?

35. Auto Club Speedway
Auto Club Speedway
I wonder if Arnold Schwarzenegger ever imagined while filming "The Terminator" on the dilapidated grounds of the old Kaiser Steel factory that he would one day return there. Not for a sequel to the movie -- indeed, not even as an actor. But that he would be the Governor of the state, and the Kais...

36. The Save The Manatee Club: The Hippest Charity Ever
The Save The Manatee Club: The Hippest Charity Ever
The work that The Save The Manatee Club does is all about the manatee. Their educational and conservation programs are all top notch. They can offer you opportunities to adopt a manatee of your very own, see a manatee in the wild, and learn about conservation works that they do. And their conserv...

37. Winter Driving Safety
Winter Driving Safety
I've lived in the Midwest nearly all my life.  In fact, even though I lived in Arizona for a year, I've managed to never miss a winter here.  That means I have been driving in winter weather conditions for a long time (no, I'm not going to tell you how long).  So, while I may not think of myself ...

38. Howard Metzenbaum
Howard Metzenbaum
If you grew up in the Cleveland area, then you grew up knowing the name of Howard Metzenbaum. He served both in the Ohio House of Representatives and the Ohio Senate, then in the United States Senate. He was a well known, easily recognized face - and often a welcome voice as well. He was a libera...
