Photo of the day: MAYDAY MAYDAY MAYDAY

It’s so comforting to know that in times of imminent danger, our stress call will require seven careful steps.

Photo of the day: Support Counter Intelligence

Who doesn’t love a good pun? I’m more of a double entendre girl myself, but even a har har pun can get a chuckle out of me sometimes. I found this tip jar at a Haagen Dazs in Santa Fe Plaza in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Now for those of you who are a bit [Keep Reading…]
