I got my pineapple conure Lola about four years ago. She is tiny, small for a conure, but is bursting with character. Her name comes from the Barry Manilow song “Copacabana,” where he sings, “Lola, she was a showgirl.” It is fitting. When I first saw her, she was rolling around, begging for attention and showing off. I fell in love and I had to have her. She’s funny and smart and since bringing her home, has learned a few phrases. “Pretty girl,” and “I love you” are her favorites - we tell each other the latter probably 50 times a day. I also get bombarded with “Hey Baby” when it’s time to take her out in the morning. She also picked up another word that I cannot write in the paper (where she learned it, I cannot say, but thankfully she uses it very seldomly). more

“Big Brothers Big Sisters helps children realize their potential and build their futures. We nurture children and strengthen communities,” is what Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) is all about. According to their website, they have been in operation since 1904 and are the “nation’s largest donor-and volunteer-supported mentoring network.” The concept is simple, take adults and match them with kids, aged 5 through young adult, and grow a meaningful relationship that will impact that child’s life. The goal is to help “littles” develop, mature, and expand their experiences to help them reach their full potential. more

I have always been a bit of a tomboy with a girly flair, at least that is how I best describe it. When I was little I could play with my set of Matchbox cars in the morning, have a Barbie party with some friends in the afternoon, then play dress up and pretend we are the girlfriends of the en vogue boy band by night. I loved to go to Grandma’s farm and frolic through the land, having imaginary scenarios of dancing with a prince just to have that same prince be bested by my tree-climbing prowess. more

Christmas movies come in all styles, forms, and qualities. People like to feel a certain way during the holidays. They want joy. They want fun. They want to escape the quagmire that is the everyday world, even if just for a few moments. Christmas movies, in all their cheesy wholesomeness, provide that siesta from life’s doldrums. Luckily for all the holiday movies junkies, there are enough to keep you binge-watching into the yuletide. I have the ones close to my heart. The newest version of The Grinch, voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch always gets me smiling. I love any Christmas Carol movie. My guilty pleasure is the Muppet version that combines the ridiculousness of the Muppets with the dead-pan seriousness of Michale Caine’s Scrooge. more
I have never liked parades - there I said it. I know they are a staple of small town, Midwest America and it is one of the aspects that make me a bit of an outsider around here; this town loves a good parade. I admit, I have avoided them, forgotten about them, gone out of town when they occurred, locked myself in my house, and done just about anything to stay away from the crowded streets filled with gaudy decorated vehicles and people walking by waving at strangers. I guess it is one of the Grinch-like, bah-humbug aspects of my personality, all the cheer and inconvenience of blocked roads just were not my thing! In all fairness, I blame my equally bah-humbug mother. She thought parades were boring so I never went to them and in turn inherited her disdain for watching people walk in straight lines in front of me. So naturally, I decided to participate in one. more
