While people are dropping the pounds at the gym, I’m usually found in the back of an old broom closet purging those bits of broken household odds and ends that have managed to stay hidden, waiting for a day of good Continue Reading...

How will you Celebrate National Trivia Day?

Just when you thought the holidays were over, it’s National Trivia Day, one of January’s many obscure holidays! Do January’s obscure holidays themselves count as trivia?  I know trivia doesn’t have the same allure as holidays involving gifts or copious champagne and snack consumption.
