Music: Country rapper Big Smo follows his own poetic path

posted: 08/28/2014 1:58 a.m. Discuss

Reading Nook: 'Crazy for Breakfast Sandwiches'

posted: 08/20/2014 2:10 a.m. Discuss

Earlier this year I reviewed the Hamilton Beach Breakfast Sandwich Maker. The machine is easy to use, and that is half the battle. You just plug it in, let it heat, layer the ingredients in a fool-proof manner and wait for the sandwich to be done.

Before a trip to Andres Coffee Shop, I went online to see its menu. The “About us” section says that Andres is owned and operated by Edgar Gonzales and his family who live in the Little Rock area.

Practically Active: Evaluate strategies to better glucose monitoring

posted: 07/14/2014 2:15 a.m. Discuss
