How To Help Someone You Love Suffering With Dementia

Watching someone you love and care about suffer with dementia is one of the hardest things. Unfortunately, I happen to know from experience. I was extremely close to my Grandad growing up, but he passed away in 2003, just one month short of his 87th birthday. I first noticed signs of dementia in 2001, when he came to visit my family in Arizona from Kansas. Even though this was the first time to[...]

The Walking Dead: The Episode Full of Cliffhangers

***Spoiler Alert: Contains spoilers from the mid-season 6 finale of The Walking Dead*** As a die-hard Walking Dead fan, it is hard for me to say, but I was pretty disappointed in Sunday’s mid-season finale. There were defiantly moments where I held my breath, but it left me with so many questions because of all the cliffhangers that it was annoying. First, I didn’t like that it was only one h[...]

A lot of these cities cater to a younger generation because of their bustling nightlife and activities. Plus, they won’t put a huge dent in your walle[...]

How The Arizona Taco Festival Failed

I was pretty excited to attend the sixth annual Arizona Taco Festival this weekend. But, I was sadly disappointed. Not only did it pour on us, which never happens in Arizona, but also the entire event was so poorly organized. First, we had to park so far away. We could have parked closer but there were so many cars and people that it really wasn’t worth it. The walk was sort of nice though bec[...]

Review: Roku’s Customer Support

I decided to get a Roku about a year ago. I wanted to be able to watch shows that I missed on Hulu and be able to binge watch shows and movies on Netflix. I have some friends who have a Roku and have been very pleased with it. Roku has a handful of different devices to stream entertainment straight to your television. Users have access to over 2,500 channels like Netflix, Hulu and so much more.[...]

Season 6 Premiere of The Walking Dead Disappoints

***Spoiler Alert*** I have been waiting for the return of The Walking Dead for MONTHS. I was so excited for last night’s premiere of season 6 that I had butterflies days before. It pains me to say this because I am a HUGE Walking Dead fan, but I wasn’t very impressed with the premiere. The episode was 90 minutes so I was expecting a lot. I felt like they didn’t cover a lot of ground in the[...]
