During Planet Comicon 2022, we decided we were trying new food every day, including deciding Saturday morning we would wake up, leave our hotel, and walk to breakfast in the River Market area.Continue reading
It has been a wild few years, but cons are making a comeback, and with it – people are venturing to said cons.

The week of Christmas, my nieces needed to do a bit of last minute shopping, so I decided it was a good time to check out some local businesses we could support, as well as giving you all a new place to check out if you’re in the area.
So, we went to The Factory in Farmington, Missouri to check out Aesop’s Treasury.Continue reading
If you’ve been around a bit, you know my love for Rocky Horror Picture Show. I’ve done posts about the Rocky Horror Picture Show Festival as well as Rocky Horror Picture Show at Mineral Area College. I’m even an official member of the Fan Club.
