Keep up the good work. Very funny. 4) I’m not a cat person but this blog literally had me howling with laughter. Meow! 5) My family may balk – but… read more

Many moons ago in a time that now feels far away I was a television reporter. I was an in-front-of-the-camera girl. While many of you may think I am a limelight kind of person if I am being frank I was never completely at ease in front of the camera. I covered breaking news in… read more
