Since today is Memorial Day and we celebrate those who have served our country, I have chosen today to share this message from our friend Peter Devereaux. Peter served our country and was based at Camp Lejeune. He is one of the many men based at Camp Lejeune who developed male breast cancer.
A Message from Peter- THE CANCER IS BACK
My treatment stopped working. My cancer had a chance to grow and get inflamed. We have already started a new treatment and they are hopeful for great results. These are the challenging times when my body is extremely sore with …
I’m finally back from my blogging hiatus, after spending almost a month in Asia! I traveled to Beijing, Hong Kong, Macau, Taipei, and Guangzhou to sightsee, visit family, and of course, enjoy all the delicious food. It was my first time visiting mainland China (Beijing and Guangzhou) and Taipei, Taiwan. Today’s blog – part 1 – focuses on some good eats in Beijing and Guangzhou. Beijing is the capital of China and historic site where the Great Wall, Tiananmen Square, and Forbidden City are located. Guangzhou is the third-largest Chinese city (after Shanghai & Beijing), located in Southern China.
The number one must-eat food in …
Today I have decided to re post a blog I did a long time ago. I dedicate this blog to Nora Ephron who lost her battle to cancer at the age of 71. Nora was known for such memorable movies as Harry Met Sally, Sleepless in Seattle, and Julie & Julia to name a few.

Rest in peace Nora Ephron, my thoughts are with …

The hottest new trend in cake design puts a spin on the traditional sense of cake itself. At first glance, a cake pop looks nothing like the birthday or wedding cakes we are so used to seeing, and later devouring. But once you taste the cake-on-a-stick there’s no denying the delicious factor.
Similar to Dunkin’ Donuts‘ beloved munchkins, or as they’re more commonly known, donut holes, cake pops are a round, bite-sized sweet served on a stick like a lollypop.

They are decorative and adorable, and perfect for any kind of celebration whether it be …
I spoke to Dee Dee Ricks the day after Steve Jobs lost his courageous battle against cancer.
“Even with all the “milestones” he passed, he could not beat cancer. He handled his cancer with grace resonating worldwide that cancer knows no socioeconomic boundaries. When you have cancer you never take it for granted no matter how many milestones you pass” Dee Dee told me.
The passing of Steve Jobs did not go unnoticed by Dee Dee’s sons. His passing weighed on their young minds. As their mother, Dee Dee had to remind them that she was ok. She was strong, her cancer …
