  I will be the first person to say that I am not very crafty. I used to be, and I still want to be, but it's not always easy for me to do the crafts I want to do.

Bring out your inner “Rock Star” with Yamaha

  Do you play an instrument? Have you ever played an instrument? When I was in elementary school we were given the opportunity to play an instrument. We have many options to choose from.

Movie Review: Train to Busan – an actual GREAT horror movie

  If you read my blog on a regular basis you know that I enjoy horror movies. I am a big fan of the genre.

As a child I enjoyed Dracula and other … [More...]
