Around here, winter is our favorite time for board games, card games, and puzzles. While the boys are always up for Candy Land, Chutes and Ladders, or Go Fish, they get really excited when we ask them if they want to play Carrom. …

Knowing where you come from

On one girls-only weekend at the beach, one of my friends spent her time looking up her family ancestry. Occasionally, she would let us know about a branch of her family tree that she had discovered, and from listening to her talk, it sounded like her family was full of rogues and adventurers.

DickensVillage (cover)



I think everyone here is pretty much familiar with the 1843 story of The Christmas Carol: you know, the one about that old miser who hates everything, especially Christmas, until he is visited by four ghosts  (yes, there are four - everyone leaves out poor old Marley), who tell him if he doesn't change his ways he is pretty much going to die alone and miserable…

Dear Pediatrician,



I wanted to say, first and foremost, thank you for taking care of my son's medical needs for his entire life. I did not attend medical school, and I'm really queasy when it comes to giving shots--*insert any and all ironic jokes here about the tattoo artist who hates needles*--so I'm…
