A Brief Character Study on Niles Crane
Back in 1982 there was a TV sitcom called CHEERS, a bar where everybody knows your name. Viewers got to know the bar workers (for example, Woody became Haymitch in THE HUNGER GAMES) and the patrons (for example, Cliff became Hamm in TOY STORY). When CHEERS ...

Watched the #Pacers  lose to the #Bulls  live and in person last night; here's my takeaway.
A week ago the Indiana Pacers seemed to have all of the momentum, but their recent losing streak won't define this season.

Read then Write: ILLUSIVE, FAR FROM HERE, ISCARIOT, FOOL ME TWICE
In college I had a professor who encouraged me to free write a few hundred words whenever I finished reading something. Over time it's proven to be wise advice. It's been a pretty diverse month over here at the Robison Reading Nook. We've got a superhero st...

Read then Write: For Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreund
I often feel like I'm racing to keep up with all of the new book releases, to keep up with the conversation around those "most anticipated" titles and those released by people I'm now connected to in one way or another. As a result, I often neglect to go ba...

One more year! One more year! #Colts
Indianapolis Colts fans are braced for Reggie Wayne's final game, but he has a few good reasons to go one more year.

My version of a #Colts #Patriots preview
For his first two seasons, Andrew Luck was best known as the guy running all the fourth-quarter, game-winning drives. In his third season, he's subtly shifted into a steadier version of Superman.

The Best Christmas Gift Ever
Early in December my husband and I received a letter that read, " I am the vine, you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. This is to my Father's glory, that you bear much fruit, show...

Recently moved to Washington state, toured LOTS of places around Issaquah, Redmond, Kirkland, and Bellevue. In the end, we did NOT choose Estates at Cougar Mountain because it was a bit too much commute, but it broke our hearts to let it go. Of all the places we toured, this staff were among the most impressive - they were so welcoming and responsive (we toured multiple floor plans during multiple visits). The place was gorgeous, felt like a vacation home, and the floor plans were interesting without being inefficient. It was one of the few places that looked even better in person than it did online. When I first called to set up our visit, my call went to some central switchboard off site, which wasn't real helpful or informative, but I'm so glad we decided to visit in person anyway. We may end up here once we're more used to the area and have a better idea of how to handle the commute. We were very impressed.

We only stayed one night but wished we could have stayed longer. We ate dinner in the Saloon and it was really, really good - a little expensive, but worth it due to quality and isolation. The Saloon has the NFL satellite package as well, so we enjoyed football and drinks. In the morning they gave us a hearty breakfast (biscuits/gravy, eggs, etc). The staff were really awesome, professional but still with that laid-back cowboy vibe. We stayed in a cabin, and it was quite cozy (even tho it was pretty chilly in October). We were warned to keep an eye out for bears if we went outside after dark, but had no issues :)
