ANCIENT MARTIAL ART, MODERN WORLD

0 My friend Ed asked me recently, “What in the world is this Takenouchi Ryu you talk about all of the time?” I paused for a moment. This is a very good question that curiously defies an easy reply. “Well, it is a Japanese koryu martial art founded in 1532 by Takenouchi Hisamori during the years of civil strife and war…

Art & Community

A Mattress that Will Improve Your Life

0 Buying a new mattress is a pretty darn confusing process. They all basically look the same and each brand seems to have five people you know love it and five people you know hate it.

Take It or Leave It

0 AAAHHH… The steady din of leaf blowers throughout town this time of year… Hmmmmm, I thought. What to do with all these leaves? What if we left them?
