Some days, I am shooting (with a camera, not a gun). On those days, I am quite active and feel great. Other days, I sit at my desk, editing photos, answering calls and emails, and working on everything else I have to do as a small business owner... Read more
I saw the "Tracy Anderson Method" infomercial last night. Honestly, it looks ridiculous. But then again, I have an aversion to anything endorsed by Gwyneth Paltrow, so maybe I'm biased by that... Plus, I'm always interested in trying something n... Read more
