Silly ways to throw out your back

I have thrown out my back in some pretty silly ways in the past, more than once sneezing.    Once moving a bag of soda syrup.    A couple times coughing.   I am pretty sure this one tops the list.   Last night I threw out my back jiggling the handle on the toilet to get it to stop running. True story.   I ... Read More »

Easter and Eagle sightings

Cookie Dough and Downsizing

If you needed any good news this Tuesday, this is it.    A new cookie dough food truck is coming to STL!   You will be seeing Half Baked Cookie Dough Company starting in May.     Likely with me not far behind. This is absolutely crazy, but it seems like I have been downsizing for about four years now.   The more carloads I ... Read More »

Did my morning check in to see if April the giraffe had her little and she has not as of yet…. So can we now just celebrate the return of Cardinals Baseball this week?

Signs of Spring in STL

Opening Day is less that two weeks away.    The first day of Spring brought record highs to St. Louis.    To say that I have spring fever would be an understatement.   I have been in St. Louis for five years now and I have learned to look for all the signs of spring that are exclusive to my beloved city: -River ...
