I Must See This!

BY Web Intern in General

I'm a Roald Dahl fan and I must admit, I have never read Fantastic Mr. Fox. Turns out the Wes Anderson movie-adaptation will hit theaters Nov. 25th and from the looks of the preview, I'm incredibly excited and eagerly awaiting its release. If you're unfamiliar with the story, Mr. Fox tries to keep one step ahead of three nitwit farmers Boggis, Bunce, and Bean who are trying to dig him out of his home! Cute shenanigans follow as Fox and the gang try to keep their lead, as well as hide out where the farmers least expect them. Read More

I'm Having a What?

BY Web Intern in General

When one of my sisters found out she was expecting, she immediately said, 'I hope it's a girl.' She wanted to buy the adorable pink clothing, toys, etc. and thought that it would easier to raise a girl nowadays. When her sonogram revealed a little member...well, she was a tad disappointed. Hell, I think she shed a tear or two. Now that my nephew is nearly six years old and full of spunk, she couldn't imagine things being any different. For some ladies, getting over that initial disappointment is not so easy. Read More
