Could there be a ghost in your house? - April Avison

I'm glad October has ended. Speaking from the perspective of someone who was raised in a household where "Halloween" was a bad word, I've never found myself too interested in the season in which children – and adults – dress themselves up as ghosts and goblins and witches.

Living life is not a chore - Zach Porter

There are some people I've met who as far as I can tell define their lives as: A. Stuff and B. Whatever it takes to get the stuff done. "Just get it done" – that's their motto. Tasks and the completion of those tasks presumably 'til your poor heart fails you. That's it. No commentary, no interpretation and certainly no room for fun. You live in a box, you drive in a box, you watch other "personalities" on a box, and you will ultimately rest in a box. Why not loosen up in the meantime and come out of your shell? Do you really want to view life as a series of items to check off a "to-do list"?

Knee-jerk reaction to bar problems - Greg Gelpi

What is it? Entermation? Infotainment? - Rob Felt

Some people spend more time on their couch than the pillows do. Prime Time means resting their post-work laurels with a bowl of Sodium Crunchies in their lap and soaking up some quality alpha waves from the big blue eye. These faithful followers wield grease-stained remote ray guns and fire off attention-deficit blasts of infrared Nielsen radiation.

Taking a hard look at economic McGrowth - Diane Wagner

Last week's news, as always, was a hodgepodge of various items but I couldn't help drawing a connection between two announcements.
