They’re Tearing Down The Great Lakes Shipping Company

Change is always difficult in life, and when a favorite spot of yours, shop, theater, restaurant, bar, closes, you feel a loss. It had been a part of your life, and you hate to see it end.

Tonight is the Ultimate Candy Haul Night. Do you Have a Favorite?

This may be a silly question, but what is your favorite Halloween candy? My answer just may be everything, but seriously, almost anything chocolate is my favorite.

Yes, Halloween is a spooky holiday and it's really fun to get all dressed up in a fancy costume, but the whole point of that is to get free candy from the neighbors. It's all about the candy loot.

Each year, millions of kids dress up and go around begging for candy, and they do not want crappy stuff, either, so forget trying to hand out raisins or packs of pencils or some such. Your yard will be TP'ed, fast.

Not a Lot of Color, But Fabulous Food in Traverse City

This past weekend, my wife, Kathy, and I decided to do a quick trip to Traverse City. After all, it's fall and we couldn't wait to see all the beautiful colors, the bay, Lake Michigan, all things northern Michigan.

This year has been just plain weird, and we found out the colors are just beginning. So, in the absence of a "colorful trip," what does man do? Turn to food!
