Olive Oil OléWARNING: What follows is a green joke that I got from a friend who got it from a priest who was his Theology professor back in college. (I kid you not. Why some of the best green jokes mostly come from religious people I know is beyond me!) You have been warned. [...]

Sweet Prune Many people I know still have a hard time pronouncing “almond,” and I would be lying if I said I am not among those people. Aside from pronouncing its name, I also have a hard time appreciating almond as a snack. Unlike my mom who devours almonds the way I consume Lays or Ruffles, I am not [...]

WORKOUT FOR THE WEEK: ​Half Lord of the Fishes

HOME IS WHERE YOUR HEALTH IS: ​Mattress Malady -- Forget Your Foam

Mattress Malady: Forget Your Foam I don’t know about you, but I love to sleep.

A Pox on BoraxI generally hate all kinds of pests, but there are a select few that really take the cake for me. In order from worse to worst, my most hated pests are: spiders, mosquitoes, and cockroaches. But there is one pest that I abhor more than a cockroach. And that is a FLYING cockroach! [...]
