ELIZABETH, DEGRIE.jpg

I read and watch a lot of things about health. The biggest reason is that I’m constantly trying to find ways to make myself healthier (something people may scoff at since I’m clearly not the picture of perfect health).

Aswell, Taylor.jpg

The first three weeks of the National Football League’s season is officially over, and now that it is, maybe someone can tell current Commissioner Roger Goodell that the officials he got to replace the professionals on strike are horrendous at their job.
