Confessions of a nacho lover in Nashville 

(Nachos sans chili and sour cream not pictured because I scarfed them down before taking a photo.)  Folks, I swear I had every intention of being good in Nashville. I even packed healthy snacks - bananas, peanuts, raisins, carrots, hummus, and "happy squeeze" blueberry and kale purée - to avoid temptation (nothing says indulgence like… Continue reading Confessions of a nacho lover in Nashville

Ghosting: Lowering society’s bar for common decency

We have a lunch group at work that gathers in the common area of our floor to eat together, and usually, someone brings up some spicy social topic they heard about on a morning entertainment talk show.
