I watched. I laughed, I cried, I relived my childhood.  The best Muppet Show guest ever :)

When I was a little kid, my mom used to tell us stories about growing up on the south side of Chicago in the 1930s and 40s. I used to think "Man! I can't believe my mom watched a guy in a horse-drawn carriage come down the street selling blocks [...]

The British are very specific about how they take their tea: black, with milk and sugar. But steeping the optimal cup requires a surprising amount of chemistry. Here's a guide to the science.

I love finding little tidbits about how older women take care of themselves.  
Just how does Martha Stewart stay gorgeous at 73? Hint: it requires waking up at 4 a.m. to put on a face mask...

My husband received chiropractic services here a couple of years ago. The treatments were very successful. The staff was very knowledgeable. I currently receive massage therapy services from Kaylyn Olson of Sacred Forest Healing at this office. She is wonderful and the price is reasonable. She even includes aromatherapy and hot stones at no additional charge. I really look forward my appointments. I have recently been experience a great deal of job related stress. My visits with Kayln have made it bearable.

I have not shopped here much but my son recently got a job here so I decided to become a patron. They recently did some remodeling and had a Grand Re-opening this month. It is a nice well stocked store, not too big. The staff is helpful. I love their large selection of bird feeders and seed.

This is a popular breakfast place. It is very busy during breakfast. It also tends to be very noisy during meal times. I prefer to visit during off peak hours. The atmosphere is very nice and the WIFI is a plus. The coffee is good and they offer free pie on Wednesdays. The services is somewhat lacking. I often have to wait a while for requests to be taken care of. Overall a great place.

I recently went in search of a new food for my cats. The staff was very helpful in making a selection and even offered up several samples. They have a well organized and well stocked store. Many foods, treats and toys you wont find in other stores. I will definitely be making this my regular stop for all things Kitty.

We went on the Thursday evening and it was not too busy at all. The owner was wonderful and attentive. The waitress was also very accommodating. She even adjusted the volume of the music at our request. It was a little bit of a wait for the food but it was worth it. I had the Dill Salmon pasta which was absolutely wonderful. Along with a Pinot Grigio from their extensive wine list. My husband enjoyed the pork rib dinner. The atmosphere is old rustic, warm and inviting. It is a bit pricey but really great for a special night out!

This is by far my favorite HyVee. The produce is fresh and they always do a good job of featuring local produce when available. They have a wonderful health food market. The employees are always helpful and they have added products to their shelves upon my request more than once. The vegetable wraps and sushi options are great for a vegan on the go. I love the coffee shop too. They always do their best to accommodate my non dairy requests.
