Why You Should Read Brietbart

Why You Should Read Brietbart

Gobsmacked but Knackered Across the Pond

Are You Taking Your Relationship for Granted?

Are You Taking Your Relationship for Granted?

  Have you ever taken your partner or someone close to you for granted? I think most of us are guilty of this – and even think it’s “normal”. I mean who can be on their best behaviour forever. Right? In this post for eHarmony…

My Riverdale: Mocha Mocha

My Riverdale: Mocha Mocha

I’m “Donald”ed-out. I can’t listen to him anymore. I don’t even find humour in Alec Baldwin imitating Donald Trump on SNL. I thought it was hilariously funny at first but his satirical rendition is so close to the truth that it’s just another depressing reminder…
