Will London and Maddie “Go Pro” at Annie’s Playhouse this Fall?

By: Roxy on 08/11/10 @ 4:04 pm

Dreams are important… when we’re kids, and when we grow up. When I was 8 years old, I wanted to be a disc jockey and own radio stations. By the time I was a sophomore in high school, I was working at the local radio station in my home town. Today, as an investment banker [...]

By: Roxy on 11/26/08 @ 11:58 pm

It’s all I can do to keep up with the bizarre fluctuations in gasoline prices, nevermind what appears to be a national shortage of fluoride. In October 2003, our family left New York City, where there’s flouride in the city water, and moved to the Roxiticus Valley , where we have well water and with [...]
