Easter is here!

It is Easter Sunday today, folks! Well, at least with the Western calendar. My Greek Orthodox friends at the local gyro shop (love gyro! I could eat that spiced lamb any day, along with my dream of daily sushi or Thai!) won`t be having their`s until May 5th, but if you fall in that category,

The New Black

I know that Pantone came out with their announcement that emerald green is this year`s color. That may even be true. For some people. Those that base their style sensibilities off of what they are told in big media outlets will be wearing that this year. But. Not all of us follow the glossy pages

A Conversation

Fantastic Fritter
