How I Learned to Spell Love

In my forty-nine years on this planet, I have had the chance to meet some amazing people and make a lot of good friends. Some have lasted beyond time and circumstance, while others have ended naturally after school, or a move or job change. A few ended painfully.

A Frigid New Year Tradition: The Polar Bear Plunge

Who doesn’t like the beach? Well, you’d think that most people wouldn’t like it quite so much just after the gorging that is the winter holidays…especially when there is still snow on the sand.  Did you know that some countries celebrate the new year by taking a Polar Bear Plunge? That’s right! A quick dip in frigid ocean or lake water is popular in countries like Canada and the United Kingdom and the Netherlands and it’s starting to take over in a few American states. People take the plunge into…
