I couldn’t image having any more fun in Philadelphia, or actually anywhere else for that matter, than what I had last year while I was there visiting with some friends. It all started when Kyle came up with the idea that the four of us go because he really wanted to visit this girl that […]

Buying New Tires for the Pick-up Truck

By: mandy | Date: February 24, 2010 | Categories: Automotive

I had needed new tires for so long, that it was almost a bit scary every time I had to go for a drive. The tread was worn down. I could see this just by looking at the tires, and I even did the penny test my father taught me about years ago when I […]

Okay, I just returned home from a Super Bowl party, I know, I and a million other people, right? Anyway, this was a mellow, as mellow as a Super Bowl can be, party and it only included a few family and friends. It was also my brother’s birthday so we incorporated his celebration into the […]

London’s reputation as a major center for world culture has always been rather strong, earning it a place in the top 5 cities to see new art.  It’s been like that for a few centuries now, and even with a radical change in the economy for everyone, there’s still no sign of the arts coming […]

NYC Dates
