Music Monday – 80s Throwback – Pour Some Sugar on Me by Def Leppard

This has always been a favorite of mine – Pour Some Sugar on Me. Lyrics Step insideWalk this wayYou and […]

Music Monday – 80s Throwback – What’s Love Got to Do With It by Tina Turner

When I was a kid, myself and all of my friends were obsessed with this song. We all learned the words and we all sang it constantly. Our parents may have been slightly concerned since the song was on the adult pop stations, but we didn’t care. We loved it. Here’s Tina Turner’s What’s Love […]

Book Review: Dragons of Autumn Twilight by Margaret Weis & Tracy Hickman

I first stepped into the world of Krynn – and Dragonlance, in 2002 with The Legend of Huma. I was working at a little used bookstore in Texas and had noticed that the small rack of Forgotten Realms and Dragonlance books we had got a lot of attention – and purchases. I enjoyed The Legend […]
