A Coffee Cure for Cellulite!

Women get cellulite.  As a matter of fact women get cellulite more than men! Whew, there, I said it. Or rather typed it, which is a good thing because Mrs. Darrin’s Coffee can’t hear my writing, though I am one heckuva’ hunt and pecker. So I am certain that she hears...

An Employee with the Right Stuff

I would like to believe myself a good employer; flexible hours, fair pay, cool environment. But sometimes, lately, it’s difficult to find the person that has the “right stuff” some would call it an employee. Not, sure what I’m doing, sometimes I wonder if it is...
