My friend Stu is a wonderful, incredibly tall, person. He's one of those people who lights up a room just by entering it. The only problem with Stu is that his heart wasn't strong enough to keep pumping his blood. He has been waiting for over a ... Read more

I hate to use the "R-word". When you look at the stats and fugures about resolutions, most of them don't make it past the first few weeks. My goals are the same no matter what day of the year I make them. And here they are... 1. Watch food ... Read more
