Oh coffee, dear coffee

Friday RDP: Coffee I like to say I’m a social drinker when it comes to coffee.  My favorite is espresso, and I have such weakness for its aroma.

Taking control of my First Impression for my blog

Blogging 101- Assignment #2 This time around I'm pretty satisfied with the title of my blog. I'll spare you a repeat of my post on how I got to this name from the original "Swirling Around in My Head".  I find that this title simply describes me and what the blog is about. Truth be told as I get … Continue reading Taking control of my First Impression for my blog
