Review: The Illusionists – Live from Broadway

Oh, oh, it’s magic! Wait, actually it’s not. It’s the art of deception and trickery. It’s The Illusionists, Live from Broadway! The show begins with Jeff Hobson aka The Trickster. He’s a flamboyant flirt as an MC of sorts. He certainly is magical- especially his wardrobe! Also in the line up are: Andrew Basso an escapologist who will make your blood pressure rise. Yu Ho-Jin Read More →

Time for love and romance. Time to leave the kids at home and do something together. Well, how about the bawdiest show in town to get your other half in the mood? Roundabout Theatre Company’s production of Cabaret is in Read More →


Review: Jersey Boys in Pittsburgh

This particular evening started off meeting a friend for dinner at a downtown eatery. The sights, the sounds and the people! The Cultural District is amazing and I just love every opportunity to par-take in what it has to offer. After dinner it was off to see Jersey Boys at the Benedum. Sure, I grew up listening to the hits of the Four Seasons – Read More →

Guest Post: THAT Mom!

I’m THAT Mom, the Mom who puts herself last. When you put yourself last so much, your family starts to think it’s supposed to always be that way. I’m THAT Mom, lying here with zero energy, with the same clothing I put on at 6 am, and went off to work. My hair looks wet. Not to be mistaken with clean. I believe dry shampoo Read More →


Picklesburgh – A two day event to celebrate the art of pickling.

Our own Cliff is at it again. Here is his take on Picklesburgh 2015   Now it’s not the event organizer or the County’s fault that this event fell on the hottest weekend Pittsburgh has experienced in the past two months but to have an event that will easily draw over five thousand people, on a bridge, is just the dumbest idea I have heard Read More →


Review: Beauty and the Beast

I had the pleasure of accompanying my daughter to see the musical production of Disney’s Beauty and The Beast at Heinz Hall, a NETworks presentation and part of the PNC Broadway Across America series. The story is one most of us are familiar with. A selfish prince and his castle are put under a spell until he can understand love and be loved in return. Read More →


Review: Phantom of the Opera

It’s a cold Friday night in Pittsburgh, temperatures in the single digit range.  What better to do than go see a show?  Why not right, after all the Phantom of the Opera was in town, and how could you resist that despite the frigid temperatures.   I’m sure all of us have somewhat of an understanding of the tale of the Phantom of the Opera.  The Read More →



Cliff is BACK! Here is what he has to say on the subject of Education…………… Please give him feedback. When was the last time you looked at your child’s homework? Did it make sense to you? Were you able to help him/her with it?   Did you feel like a dumbass when the teacher marked the answers wrong?   Education.   Since I was in Read More →


“Spare the rod and spoil the child.”

Cliff has more to say…. Before you get the pitch forks out,  take a minute to read what he is saying. You might not agree with him but he does have some great points. “Spare the rod and spoil the child.” Words that were written in a poem by Samuel Butler in 1664 that should have been a sign post for parents through time. Spanking is Read More →


Just a 2 year old and a tablet

Welcome to our guest blogger Cliff……. Yes my two year old granddaughter has a tablet and she knows how to use it fairly well too. I’m tired of hearing about the evils of electronic devices and how they are bad for children, especially at a young age. Hailey still loves to color and draw and do a myriad of other things that two year olds Read More →
