Oftentimes it is not easy to talk about or to have someone assist you with. And usually there are not many resources to turn to. When I was younger, I learned a lot of what I needed to know from Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret, but as an adult, it just … [Read more...]

If you are lucky enough to be in Paris now you would be able to catch a peek of the famous Le Crazy Horse cabaret show at Printemps department store window. Not quite the same as the Christmas displays at Macy's, this randier version highlights the talents of one of the oldest cabaret shows in Paris.
