Helping with Hops!

Written by
If you are like most.  Your alcohol intake is up and your community output is lacking.  Mainly, because it's a pandemic. I love music!  Especially live music.  My final show before 2020 hit was "The Yawpers" at The Beachland.   Since the world has closed down and started to reopen.  Music Venues like Beachland Ballroom, Grog Shop,  Mahall's and Happy Dog have been struggling due to guidelines.  How can you help? 1.

Ring-ing in 2021!

Written by
Ringing in the New Year never hit just right. This New Guiness World Record will have everyone saying "I Do"!   I would say this ring with 12,638 diamonds is highly desired.  This ring earned it's name the 'Ring of Prosperity'. Click here to see this monster. What happened to the old mantra of spending a month or two worth of paychecks?

That Laugh, Though!

Written by
Have you ever wanted to interview Snoop Dogg?  Most people would say, yes. Naturally you would ask him about his "extracurricular" activities... Since Andy Cohen and Anderson Cooper were knockin' back tequila shots on their New Year's Eve Special... Things went exactly that way.  Anderson Cooper's laugh is definitely a "High"-Lite of this one.

Live Like It's Not 2020

Written by
As you look to 2021 for a new normal... realize that resolutions are just wishes and prayers. It takes determination and a real "will" to change.  Sure this past year was horrible, to say the least. We lost family, friends, members of our community in Northeast Ohio and beyond.  These dark times may have enlightened us to things we have been doing wrong or need to address. 1. Remember, to take one day at a time. 2. Set attainable goals.   And if this past year has taken us anywhere (but our homes)...  it is out of our comfort zone.  3.…
