A Mastodon? In Wheaton?

The weather, the gray skies, sports’ schedules, basically February…It just doesn’t bode well for getting out and about to see and do fun stuff around town.  I decided to change that, but stay close and walk over to Wheaton College for a field trip of my own.  I had heard about a previous Mastodon finding that...

Marcel's for Mother's Day

Marcel’s Culinary Experience is a GREAT store.  It is a candy store for cooks.  I stumbled upon it a few months ago while shopping in Glen Ellyn.  It is just a short walk from the Metra train.  (Less-than-a-block short.)  I love all of the gadgets and kitchen items they sell, but what I was most...

A Trip to Paris

I love the internet.  I love that I can find any answer to any question at any time.  If I can’t find the answer, I am not asking the right question. Although I love the internet, I am not a gamer. I don’t play any internet games at all. No Angry Birds, no Solitaire, no... Read more »
