  • This winter’s snow and ice might have created headaches for a lot of people, but to my puppy, Zorro, they are just more things to chew on.


    Try as we might, my significant other, Rebecca Ricks, and I have not been able to dissuade the tiny Pomeranian from chewing on anything and everything.

    It really doesn’t matter what he finds to chew on. Paper towels, clothes, furniture, receipts, blankets, carpets, our other dog, Tybalt; it’s all the same to him.

  • Hollywood will be in all its glitz and glamour Sunday night for the 86th Academy Awards.

    For a movie nerd, picking the Oscar-winning film is like picking the winning Super Bowl team. Because many of this year’s nominated films are small releases, you might have missed them in theaters.
