Once again, the majority Republican Congress is pushing the American Health Care Act – healthcare overhaul, although overhaul is too gentle a word – approval. Last week, the House passed the AHCA with a 1-point margin.
The bill still has to pass the Senate and will likely (hopefully) undergo many changes, but that doesn’t mean some lawmakers weren’t celebrating their promise to decimate healthcare as we know it. Continue reading
I am 100% what present-day society would refer to as a “binge watcher.” I have been known to watch full seasons of TV shows in one day, or one weekend if the season is particularly long. And while my binge watching isn’t limited to Netflix, most of it occurs there. The streaming service not only has some of my favorite older TV shows to binge, but also new, original programs that have been wonderful: Marvel’s Jessica Jones, A Series of Unfortunate Events, Stranger Things and Master of None, to name a few (because trust that I could go on).

You may be thinking, “Well, binge watching definitely contributes to a sedentary lifestyle, but it’s probably illegal to say Netflix itself is killing you.” And you’d be right. But that’s not where I’m going with this. Continue reading
We first heard Miranda Lambert’s new hit, “We Should Be Friends” a few days ago and quickly got to nodding and thinking, we should be friends! Although, to be honest, we’ve been singing that tune for a while now and would readily jump at any opportunity to put on a pair of old cowboy boots and kick it with her.

Lily Collins would not be surprised to hear that her roles in movies like “Mirror, Mirror,” “The Mortal Instruments,” and “Stuck in Love,” have cemented her in my mind as perpetually 18. The actress, who turns 27 today, addresses her young face and the pros and cons of her perpetual youthfulness as just one topic in a collection of essays published last week, “Unfiltered: No Shame, No Regrets, Just Me.” Continue reading
It’s the most wonderful time of the year for basketball fans. But if you struggle to sit through a game without yawning, it can be a painful experience – especially when you live with someone who is a total fanatic.

History is full of women who, in spite of many challenges and roadblocks, pursued a life of courage, determination, and passion. They impacted science, the arts, politics, sports, and every other area of life. Some even risked their lives in order to free the oppressed and lift up the downtrodden. As we celebrate Women’s History Month this far-from-comprehensive list will help you learn about a few of them and be inspired by their stories. Continue reading

I just turned 38 a few days ago.
That’s an odd way to start off this post but it’s significant. Stay with me on this.
According to the all-knowing Wikipedia, I was born just in time to qualify to be a member of Generation X. I grew up in the Eighties and can remember a few epic moments of pop culture from my childhood. Continue reading
