Once again, we want to stress that we believe that sex ought to be saved and reserved for serious, committed, monogamous relationships, ideally for marriage. (We know it is a real world, and the ideal is not always achieved, but it is still worth striving for.) We do not wish this essay to give anyone the erroneous impression that we are advocating, or approving of, casual…

It’s Time To Boycott Evil CEOs

Systematic wage theft, illegal campaign contributions, big game hunting, and deceptive contracts. These are just some of the illustrious acts that Jimmy John’s CEO John Liautaud has been accused of in the past two years. Although there has been no decisive proof on any of these allegations (except the deceptive contract restrictions of working for competitors), it doesn’t take an anti-corporate hippie to figure out that this man doesn’t deserve our money. (See Huffington Post’s article on Jimmy John’s Wage Theft, or My San Antonio’s piece on lawsuits facing Liautaud) It may be convenient to overlook these horrendous allegations in favor of ‘freaky fast’ sandwiches, but perpetuating a system of wealthy filth lining the top of the ladder is wrong, and there’s only one way to stop it. It’s time to boycott evil CEOs.

France Can Be Weird At Times

“I have just learned that I have been nominated for the Legion d’Honneur”, Pinketty said; “ I refuse this nomination because I do not think it is the government’s role to decide who is honourable”.
Last year, cartoonist Jacques Tardi also turned down the Legion D’Honneur. Others to have refused the award include philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre and radiology pioneers Pierre and Marie Curie.
The number of cars set fire to in France on New Year’s Eve was down 12 % on last year according to Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve. 940 vehicles were torched nationwide compared with 1067 last year. 308 people were arrested and 251 taken in to custody.

A Cheesy Christmas Tradition

Pictures & Plane Tickets

Aside from the amazing photos, once-in-a-lifetime experiences, and cherished memories from all of our travels, one of my favorite aspects of traveling is the opportunity to try new things–new drinks, new foods, and at times, new traditions. After the vacation is over and the bags are unpacked, I always try to incorporate some of our new experiences into our daily lives; I‘ll whip up a new drink recipe, or infuse an already solid dinner recipe with ingredients influenced by the vacation.

The Christmas after we traveled to Leavenworth, Washington, I surprised my husband by ordering a Leavenworth delicacy directly from the Cheesemonger’s Shop. You may think that ordering a block of cheese for a Christmas party is somewhat dull, and in some cases you would be right–but not in this case. The Applewood Smoked Cheddar from England is the Cheesemonger’s Shop’s best seller, in fact, it is so good that one night during our…
