I get into arguments with my husband over how long things in the fridge are still good after they have been opened. Well, sometimes, we argue over obviously "spoiled" food like the 5-week old cheese ball he is still eating on. And, the bag of lettuce that has some pretty brown speciments inside that he will pick through and still eat. Not me! I am a 72-hour girl. Pretty much I don't eat it if it's been in there for 3 days or longer. Except those things that you pretty much assume you can keep a long time and still use safely. Like ketchup, mustard, BBQ sauce. That kind of stuff.
Lets face it, the in-laws or third cousins that make cousin Eddie from Christmas Vacation look like a "smart and balanced" individual can be more than a hand full. So what are the best holiday cocktails to help you through the onslaught of "family time"? Here are some of my picks:

I might be a rare voter these days - but I actually LIKE to vote on Election Day. There's just something very exciting about being able to cast your vote on election day. We hear so much about the presidential election - and it's an important election - but don't forget there are also other people running for office. And in Wichita we're also voting on water fluoridation. There are some important decisions to be made so do your part and VOTE!
Shoot! What a few days I've had here...you'll be hearing what I've been doing soon. Interviewing, interviewing, interviewing. It's really a crazy thing to do; you have about five minutes with each artist with no time to prepare before you talk - so you better be ready going in.
Whatever your belief system is, you have to admit there's something special about hearing a good ghost story. Especially a ghost story told by someone who is sharing their own personal account of and experience.
