Happy new year! Christmas is over, holiday decorations are packed away for another year, and your home looks blah and bland! Now what? Winter is a great time, especially since you're indside, to get the decorating juices flowing. Here are a few suggestions for getting started: 1. Pick a room.

I have 4 seats at the Horseshoe and I am a Buckeye since about 1967. I love Woody and all the tradition. If this does not "get you'', no problem, you are not a Buckeye and that is cool! I respect your team also, that is why I love college football. I watch all the games (after The Ohio State game is over!). We all carry this feeling from youth for our favorite team. It takes us back and makes us young again. Anybody that attends college games regularly can tell you how exciting it is. Not just for the game, but the momentum builds as soon as you get your tickets. The anticipation, game day, the music, the crowd. If you have not been to ...
