Still Searching for Stepha

A story gets old. A case gets cold. Another missing person goes forgotten. I hope and pray that won’t be the case for Stepha Henry. The vivacious graduate student disappeared during this year’s Memorial Day festivities here in South Florida. The search continues, and her family and friends continue to pray for her safe return.

Friday Teaser

OK, I had a very long and very controversial post in the works, but I need more time to craft my words carefully, and also I gotta confess… last night I wound up going to a crazy party in Miami’s Design District. I must say, it really sets the tone for the evening when you […]

It’s worth noting that age doesn’t always bring wisdom, but you can definitely learn a lot from those […]

And during the summer, I want effortless, healthy hair, easy-to-maintain beauty, and happy, bubbly music to make me dance. To me, summertime goes hand-in-hand with reggae. […]
