Yes, Timmy, there is such a thing as a Blue Moon

Good friends and I were joking around one evening over many cocktails.  The topic of discussion was whether or not a Blue Moon indeed exists.

The Farmers Market  in … Continue reading Northern Michigan…for breakfast

Welcome Spring! Continue reading Spring Fling
