RANT: Airplane Seats

Is it me or could there be more ergonomic airplane seats? Who designed these frigging things? Unless you are 6’3″, the headrest thrusts the back of your head forward, forcing your chin toward your chest like you are monitoring your cleavage.  While I so enjoy the jolting head bobbing that goes on when I hit deep REM’s on a plane,  I have often wished I … Continue reading RANT: Airplane Seats

RECIPE: Kale, Ginger and Pineapple Smoothie

Planes are a funny thing.  You can get stuck with 5 hours of elbow wrestling a hairy, super-sized, deodorant-boycotting beast or you can meet the most interesting people.

RANT: The Horse and the Donkey

That title makes it sound like this is going to be a pretty funny blog.  Well, it’s not. It’s actually quite sad.  This blogspot is a glance at the different eating habits of the two animals.  I could have most or all of the details mixed up, but I’m pretty sure I remember my mother telling me, that if you were to leave an entire week’s worth of oats for a horse to … Continue reading RANT: The Horse and the Donkey
