Twirling Bunghole

The beach is a popular destination on holidays, including Memorial Day weekend.  In addition to remembering and thanking those who served this great country so that we could do things like write this fabulously funny blog a few times each week, people come to relax and unwind.  Those who were trapped in the cold weather…

The Dirty Dancing Experience

Dirty Dancing and Pretty Woman are two of my all-time favorite movies.  I’ve lost track of the number of times that I’ve watched each of them.
