When was the last time you were stark raving mad about a game? Not a digital game on your phone or computer, but an offline IRL game like the ones we used to play as kids (for those of us old enough to remember a time when children played non-digital games 😛 )? For me, it had been a long long time, until I came across a card game last year, Red7 (you can check it out on Amazon here), which is what I’d like to tell you about today. Stick around and I’ll even share a video explaining the card game rules, so you … Continue reading
I’ve recently been told by people close to me that I am rigid. The first time I heard this, I was shocked and sure that the person I was talking to had it all wrong.

When I was growing up, the breakfast table at my parents’ home always included a jug of freshly squeezed orange juice. Breakfast was never complete without it! Somehow, when they moved to Kenya, during my teen years, that habit came to an end. Instead, at breakfast, my parents chose to serve orange juice out of a packet. Still, they tried to make sure that the fruit juice we drank was as healthy as possible. My father was particularly adamant that the juice he bought had no added sugar. This is how I first learned about Delmonte juice.
When I “pack” my handbag before I go out every day, I recite a list of items that I want to be sure not to forget. Without going into too many details, my current recitation goes: phone, money, swipe…(insert a few more items here that include a small tin of petroleum jelly 🙂 )… mints, camera. I am sure you can understand why I carry items such as my phone and money, but an item like mints—and Fisherman’s Friend mints at that—may baffle you a bit (as it has people who’ve seen me put my bag together in the past). … Continue reading
