    Saturday movie review: 'Go Grandriders'

    Today I'm reviewing a movie you're highly unlikely to ever see. It's not currently playing anywhere in the United States nor is it slated to be, as far as I can tell. It's not available on Netflix. You can't buy it on iTunes. You can, though, purchase the Blu-ray from Amazon. (That's not an affiliate link.)

    8 great reasons to bake with grandchildren

    My grandsons helped me make cupcakes for our mini-celebration in Mac's honor last week. The fun led me to consider why such a simple — and often messy — activity can be such a great one for grandparents to enjoy with their grandchildren.

    On covering former First Lady Laura Bush

    In light of yesterday's patriotic mood in honor of Memorial Day, I thought today would be an ideal time to share my experience covering the conversation between Laura Bush, Barbara Pierce Bush and Soledad O'Brien at the AARP Life@50+ event in Boston a few weeks ago.

    Saturday movie review: 'Salvation Boulevard'

    I enjoy quirky independent films. While perusing Netflix streaming recently, I came upon what seemed like a fun one: SALVATION BOULEVARD.
