The Dog Patch

Dog owners all know that day-to-day life is much better with a four-legged friend, although there are some things that make it easier. In February this year, I pulled together a list of dog daycares and boarding kennels in the Tri Cities to help owners. Smart move, as by April we had a dog once […]

All About Registered Massage Therapy


Massage Therapy

Life is full of questions – where do socks go missing in the dryer? How do I eat that last square of chocolate before the kid finds me? Is it really only four-hour parking at Rocky Point (yes, it is). And what does a registered massage therapist do? Hint – it’s not scented candles and […]



DIY Vintner, or Places to Make Your Own Wine in the Tri-Cities


Wine spilling

Home-made wine always conjured up images from my childhood of harvesting peapods, demijohns bubbling quietly in the airing cupboard, alcohol explosions, and going to school in clothes smelling not-so-faintly of booze.

Family-Friendly Fun at PoCo Bowl


One recent day between Christmas and New Year’s our whole family was feeling a little stir-crazy. The gifts had been opened, the chocolate had been eaten, and all that togetherness had worn a little thin. Of course, it was cold and rainy out, so we didn’t even have the option of sending the children out […]
