Out and About – Week of February 6th

There are two topics I try to avoid when putting this column together. They are religion and politics. I witnessed my father arguing both topics as I was growing up and I vowed to not waste my time arguing over such personal issues.

Out and About – Week of January 30th

Out and About – Week of January 16th

Breakfast is my favorite meal. I can’t think of a better way to start the day than to get Out and About to a local eatery and partake of a delicious breakfast.
