  •  “The spider's web: She finds an innocuous corner in which to spin her web. The longer the web takes, the more fabulous its construction. She has no need to chase.

Spiders – so needed and yet so misunderstood.”

    Apples are good and snickerdoodles are good so this recipe had to be good, too.

  • “Prisoners” is full of compelling acting, but it’s not a movie I ever want to see again because of the intense subject matter. Take your ethics books with you on this one because you might need it.

    In a heart-wrenching and stressful plot, audiences have to decide if violence — and in a way, evil — is OK when trying to combat a heinous act. Complicating the decision is that the characters are unsure who is at fault.
