Woodhouse Spa

The first thing I discovered when I went to discover Franklin Tennessee was that the entire state is closed on Sunday. Except the day spas. The first one I went to only had massage therapists working that day. However, Woodhouse Spa was open from…

Colgate Wisp

I had seen the Colgate Wisp advertised, but hadn’t tried them.  I thought it was a brilliant idea but I don’t like the price.  I think it was $2.50 for a 4-pack.    But I forgot to pack toothpaste on this, of all trips, when I…

Domino’s Pasta in a Bread Bowl

There was a Domino’s Pizza up the road from my hotel, so Sunday night I decided to try the pasta bowl things they have been advertising.  My expectations weren’t high, which is a good thing. Check it out: What does this look like to…

The Civil War and Reconstruction Era – 1845-1877, Lectures by David W. Blight

Gamecast

Once a year, the Bears seem to have a Thursday night game. Thursday night, when I am at the library. So I am sitting with my paper, due Sunday. But I have Internet, so I go to the gamecast at ESPN.com. You get a…

Pumpkin Smash

Sometimes when I am all stressed out at work, I take the longish walk to Jamba Juice and get a smoothie for lunch.  I went in last week and got the pumpkin smash.  I heard it was “pumpkin pie through a straw”. It actually…

Product Review – Wigo Curling Iron

Skilled as I appear with the eyeliner and skin care, I am a total loser about my hair. It is bone straight and I have spent a lifetime trying to put curls into it. (Note Jenny’s Theory – No woman is every happy with…

Product Review – Eyeliner Sealer

I started wearing make up at eleven. I know stuff. I don’t know everything, because who can be bothered? But trust me on this one – eyeliner. I have pale skin and pale eyes, so eyeliner has always been my one most important cosmetic….
