How to Make Long Island Tea

Long island tea is a classic drink that you can get in almost any bar, a type of cocktail so old that nobody’s completely sure who even first created it. Despite its name, it’s not actually made using tea: in fact, it’s not even made in a similar way to tea…

Corsets have been part of a woman’s wardrobe since antiquity.  Over the centuries, they evolved and changed.…

A Review of The Other Side of Courage: Good but Could Have Been Great

Perhaps it takes a fighter pilot to write about a fighter pilot.  Joe Matlock, who spend nearly 20 years in the armed forces, takes on the experiences of an airman in the waning years of World War II in The Other Side of Courage.

A Review of The Earl and The Enchantress: Examining the Power of Love

The Earl and The Enchantress by Paullett Golden was a pleasant surprise.  I didn’t expect to like it because it’s a romance, and I’m not a romance sort of woman.  The genre generally doesn’t give its characters and plots enough substance for my tastes, but that’s exactly how The Earl and the Enchantress differs.  It features characters who exhibit traits and emotions that go above and beyond passion.…
