Summertime Pasta Salad

For our family’s Father’s Day Gathering, I made a great pasta salad. When I was a kid, I avoided all mixed salads–pasta, potato, tuna, chicken. However, I loved my mom’s pasta salad (this is her recipe modified a bit). My very picky boyfriend even liked it. Plus, since I made it, it is GUARANTEED to be quick, easy, and very […]

However, I was listening to Matt Lauer interview Tom Cruise this morning regarding his stance of psychiatric drugs (in light of the Brooke Shields controversy), and I am fed up. Tom Cruise says […]

Two Kids from the City

Two kids from the city were on a camping trip. The mosquitoes were so bad that the children had to hide under their blankets to avoid the bites. Then one of them saw some lightning bugs, and said to his friend,…
