Hello Doris! A Movie Review.

Sweet Sally Field. I can never get let go of her roll in 'The Flying Nun' which I watched (hmm) religiously as a kid. But here she is, post Forest Gump, The Amazing Spider Man and some less significant tv roles.

On Friendship

by: Chrysa Smith When I do writing workshops with elementary school students, my assignment to them is to write about their best friend.

Styling Outside of the Box

They say that personal growth comes from trying new things; stepping out of the proverbial box. So, I have to hand it to my husband Mark. He stepped completely out of his comfort zone in a very stylish manner. Now mind you, Mark is probably the most conservative person I know. He grew up in Montana--a very homogenous, small and simple environment. He has donned the same couture for decades: jeans and golf [...]
