Meet and Greet: Gateway House

I got the chance to talk briefly with Alexia Rousseau who manages the Gateway House. I had to ask how did she get into this business? "I've been down and out before. Someone helped me out of it and I'm returning that favor to others, showing you can get somewhere. You're not stuck." "Gateway House is similar to a halfway house in some ways and yet we branch in a few different ways. Our goal is to give second chances to those that have not always been given the option, for those that feel stuck in a bad place and for those that truly want to get their life on the right track. We've been there before and Gateway's goal is to help provide the means to let individuals find their own way up. Ou

Meet & Greet: QJewelers

I recently got a chance to talk with QJewlers and asked what they were all about. "We are opening a jewelry store, specializing in diamonds and gemstones for customized work. We have all sorts of options and choices if customization is not your thing. Our clarity of our pieces is our top priority. Whatever you buy, we want it to sparkle." She added that "Purchasing from us is easy. We do installment payments where necessary and can also speak about loans for grand parties and events. You might not need to won the piece, but you can still wear it!" Intrigued by some of the pieces I saw in the store I had to ask "What's the most unusual thing in your store?"

Full moon brings out the loonies!

The Full Moon on April 7th, Tuesday, brought out the loonies. On my late night stroll on Menice beach I noticed an odd smell. As I followed it, I saw two people engaging in what looked like some weird Full Moon ritual of sorts. I recognized both individuals, one of which is a local celebrity/fitness Guru. Yes, I'm talking about Ms. Fawnie Dimple. Ms. Dimple was joined by the manager of Tip Top Grocery and Convenience store in south side, Bunni Crisman. The blonde seemed to be the one leading it. Though I'm shocked by Ms. Dimple's presence, Ms Crisman's involvement didnt elicit the same response. That woman always struck me as a weirdo and I'm sure others who have encountered the overly t
