Rogue Raccoon

Written by
It's apparently a Wild Kingdom in North Ridgeville. Police have responded to calls about a kangaroo on the loose; a cow falling off a trailer; potbellied pigs stalking the locals. And now-- a masked bandit who apparently felt all "Goldilocks"...   So a resident called and said he had a raccoon in his dishwasher. Wait. What? Luckily we had our resident Absurd...

I have found the adult juice box, thanks to Chili's. Chili's was born on March 13, 1975. To celebrate, they're offering a gallon of their Presidente margaritas to-go for $30. If you can't make a Chili's stop on the 13th, you can hit 'em any time and grab this adult Capri Sun for $40. Each bag holds 30 drinks. Thirty. This will help on those challenging days.

Quaint it Wonderful

Written by
I sense a theme in my blogs this week-- a desire to travel. Earlier, I shared a cool must-see destination in our lovely state. Then, I wrote about taking an out-of-this-world trip. Now, I'm back home. Women's Day magazine has deemed Marietta one of the most beautiful small towns in America. To be fair, they picked a small town from each state. The last time I was in that area, I went to a friend's wedding. That was eons ago. Perhaps I need to make a return visit. See why Marietta was chosen HERE. Meanwhile, here's a little small town…

Out of This World

Written by
Who doesn't have cabin fever right now? Like I mentioned on my last blog, a road trip is always a good idea. I also love a good all-inclusive resort. But this is next level vacationing. How about a stay at the Voyager Station? In space. A space hotel.  Yup. This orbiting space hotel should be good to go by 2027. The peeps in charge of this project say the hotel will feature "the comfort of low gravity, and the feel of a nice hotel." Okay. When it comes to design, the inner ring will be used for docking, while the…
