Spring Break is just around the corner, which means revealing your abdominal muscles that have probably been well hidden over the winter months.

My high school years were filled with Elvis Presley; his music and movies. I loved the candid pictures of his naturally radiant smile rather than the sexy serious looks of promotional shots. Fans looked up to him because of his generosity to those less fortunate, or the gifts he gave to unsuspecting individuals. Once his Las Vegas days and concerts in later years included news of substance abuse, women, and more explicit gyrations, some fans dropped away, including me. Still, I grieved upon hearing of his early death. So the only place IRead more: Memphis, Elvis, And Graceland

This weekend is the “wearin’ of the green” in honor of all descendants of Ireland. In the early 1800s, many of those who were jailed in Ireland would be sent to Australia. Many Irish came to the United States to escape the yoke of British tyranny, thus we honor them for their perseverance.
