We've encountered some sickening behavior on our campus property lately, most taking place in the park like area which borders Demun. You wouldn't really think of these things as Clayton-ish, but sadly it is. Whether it's a feeling of entitlement... Continue reading

I was reading a Facebook post from Vintage St. Louis this morning and one of the stories they told was about Steak n Shake. The company's motto, always written on the outside of the building and I believe, the bags... Continue reading

We went last night and it was outstanding as always. The Missouri Botanical Garden really puts the time and effort into lighting up the place creatively. Of course each area has corporate sponsors which fund it each year. Here is... Continue reading

Said good-bye yesterday to a very old bathroom window shade to which someone who lived in this house eons ago pasted a swath of wallpaper on the bottom. I guess this was supposed to dress it up a bit back... Continue reading
