Let’s Talk Tuna

What comes to mind when you hear the word "tuna?" Personally, I think it probably depends on your age. If you are in your 20’s, you may think of sushi right away, perhaps a nice piece of Nigiri. If you are in your 30’s and 40’s, chances are you think of tuna salad, either as... Continue Reading →

What To Wear – Foundation Garments

A little piece I wrote for Retrocentric... A few years ago when I was establishing Retrocentric here in Cincinnati, I started the What To Wear Wednesdays blog.

I happen to be a non meat-eater, but I... Continue Reading →

My Vintage Radios

I have fond memories of sitting on the shag carpet next to my grandmother's Hi Fi stereo cabinet in upstate NY, listening to the Bee Gees' "How Deep Is Your Love" with the wonderful crackles and hisses of the vinyl spinning 'round and 'round. There was a painting of an autumn tree-lined road above the... Continue Reading →
