This week I had planned to post a final RD recap but then I found this… Nature is so fascinating, I spent almost an hour observing these paper wasps last night.

Paper wasps are also sometimes called umbrella wasps, due to the distinctive design of their nests The nests of most […]

I just came back from a JUMPIN Zumba class at the NEW Lucille Roberts location (55-05 Myrtle Ave. btw St. Nicholas and Madison St.) The upgraded facility is a huge incentive to accomplish my 2014 get buff and fit into my cute jean skirt again… challenge! First impressions… The space looks modern and clean and the layout is great. You walk up one flight of stairs to the second level for entry and check-in. The treadmills, bikes and elliptical machines are the first thing you see. You can get your cardio workout […]
Lucky for Fiver we rescued him from the street life or he wouldn’t be a happy cat today. Fiver rejected the snow! Usually he loves going on the RD but he’s not into the cold, wet weather. He was tempted though…
