Warm Up To Winter Workouts

Outside its frosty and frigid and let’s face it, the last thing on your mind is fitness. However maintaining a healthy and active lifestyle is imperative year round, not just during swimsuit season. “Keeping active during the winter keeps you 5 steps (not to mention 5 months) ahead of everyone else,” Lifestyle Fitness Personal Trainer Michael Price explains.

ven a blizzard shouldn’t be a big enough road block to deter you on the path to becoming a work-out warrior. Price proposes investing in the Wii Fit console as it can be used for exercise within the home and something active for the whole family to partake in together. He also suggests getting creative by attacking full body workouts using your own body weight (IE: push-ups, sit-ups and chair dips). Another cost-efficient mechanism for an at home sweat secessions is the internet. YouTube, Shape, Fitness for Her and Fitness websites all offer free workout videos and workout advice,” explains Dolce.

YOU ARE HERE:Finding the Life You Want In The City You Live

Over the next few weeks, You Are Here will explore the proto-typical urban center of the US. These articles will relate strategies and constants that are discovered and developed through surveys, interviews and experiments in the Columbus area, a noted test market. Topics will range from how to become a coffee shop regular in 2 weeks, to karaoke-ing with gusto, and plenty in between. Drawing on expertise and opinions from professionals and layman alike, You Are Here will give So and So a better understanding of how to find a better understanding of his city. READ MORE HERE.

Cigar 101: Selecting Your Cigar

Finding the right cigar for you is perhaps the most essential part of getting interested in cigars. A poor choice of cigar, and someone who was previously curious about cigars will quickly have that interest extinguished. A great choice is all about setting yourself up for success. This isn’t about finding the most expensive cigar in the store, or blowing your wad on a finely aged cigar, or even selecting a big name cigar that had the flashiest ads. As the old saying goes, the proof is in the pudding, and in this instance, what performs best is what one should favor rather than what is trendy in the cigar world or in the cigar magazines. With that in mind, there are some things one should know before one spends their hard earned cash on a smoke. READ MORE HERE.

Leaving a Paper Trail: Greeting Cards For All Occassions


A lot of people believe that Sweetest Day is merely an invention by greeting card companies to try and capitalize on those poor schnooks whose girlfriends can’t make it until next February. And this of course comes before the barrage of end of year holidays in which we become so bogged down by goodwill and cheer that it becomes less, well, cheerful a time. Luckily, the brunt of minor holiday worries are over, and you are left unscathed. That doesn’t, however, mean the rest of the year is a snap. On the contrary, there’s inevitably that one gal in the office that insists on getting everyone a card for every minute holiday, from Arbor Day to National Talk Like a Pirate Day. So should you feel like a schmuck for not returning the gesture? Not necessarily. But with the plethora of greeting card options available from purveyors like Hallmark, there’s not always an easy way to tell when to card, when to send an email blast with some holiday-specific witticisms, and when to do nothing at all.

Score the Season's Best With Collier West

Take one step off of North High Street and into Collier West and the transformation from busy city living to “home, chic home” can be felt instantaneously. A rustic, romantic fantasy land, Collier West exemplifies couture cabin living at its finest. The store acquired its unique name as a result of a brief brush with fame. It was during a snowshoeing trip when “Collier West” was first sung by Mary Chapin Carpenter, the famous country singer being an old friend of co-owner Mary Jo Collier. Mary Jo immediately informed Suzi and the rest is Collier West history. READ MORE.

The Literary Essentials: Evelyn Waugh

If you’ve heard of Evelyn Waugh, it’s probably because your film buff friend dragged you to see Brideshead Revisited. But aside from his Hollywood reincarnation, there is no one who better sums up the image of the epicurean than the writer who lived through one of the most flamboyant periods in history. Arthur Evelyn St. John, better known just as Evelyn Waugh, may have been highly satirical of the Roaring Twenties and interwar period, but he understood and wrote about it better than most.

Season's Greetings: Autumn in Central Ohio

Summer is on its last sunburned legs, but that’s no reason to despair. Autumn, however fleeting a time it may be in Columbus, is officially upon us.

Here are the top 10 reasons (in no particular order) why you should live it up before the weather takes a nosedive. READ MORE HERE.

What I did last weekend
For those of you who don't know. I am a WWII reenactor. I portray a combat photographer. I have a little service I offer to visitors at public events. I let them dress up in a uniform -- usually the uniform of a relative (grandpa, grandma, great-uncle, etc.) who was a WWII vet, then I take their photo with my WWII 4x5 Speed Graphic.

Here are some photos I took at the WWII Weekend at Historic Ft. Snelling this past weekend.
