Rumors spread in Durham that a second location of the Big Bean was coming to town. Could it be true? If so it would be a dream come true. We have dined at the Big Bean Café in Newmarket several times and had never been let down. We’ve brought family and friends from al...

Great music, great weather and the beach is a good recipe for a good time. It is also a great way to describe the 25th anniversary of the Vans Warped Tour.  I got the chance to see it down in Atlantic City, New Jersey with just about 30,000 other people. I took the two...

Travel is the spice of life. It is indescribable happiness bottled up into a foreign city, new
friends and unforgettable moments. Planning, time and money are factors that prevent
people from becoming the nomad traveler they are at heart– but it’s easier (and

To be clear, the first meeting went great.

The 30-minute drive to her office was a blur of heart palpitations and anxious thoughts. I could barely believe the situation I found myself in. This actress who I was going to meet wanted me, of all people, to write her autobi...
