Now that we’ve officially entered the holiday season, there are sure to be countless invitations to holiday gatherings piling up in your mailbox (or email inbox, perhaps). Maybe you’re even throwing a get-together of your own. If so, you’ll want to continue reading.

I can say without out a doubt that I lost a few IQ points last week. And no, that statement has nothing to do with who I am voting for in the much-anticipated Nov. 6 election.

The lady behind me had a cart full of convenience foods: Rice Krispy Treats, juice boxes and enough sugary fruit snacks to send a bear into hyperglycemic shock.
When I was a kid, one of my favorite parts of the week was chocolate milk Fridays. We had to suffer through only having white milk with our school lunches for four days, and Fridays was a big treat.
One beer, two beers, three beers – what’s the harm in one more?
