I grew up in South Haven, Michigan.  Gotta love the lakeshore! Still feel a yearning for the beach, pretty much daily.  Moved to Grand Rapids to go to Calvin College. Fell in love with GR and have been here since! (Go Beer City, USA!)   Big fan of crime TV, the '90s (scrunchies! Saved By the Bell!), my own rude and feisty cat, the beach (you may have thought I covered that already, but I really really love it, OK?), reading,  people watching, drinking on patios, playing the most inappropriate cards in Cards Against Humanity, and my dear, dear family.

After public outcry, Gov. Snyder has ordered flags are to be lowered to half staff on Monday, March 30, to honor the three U.S. Marine Staff Sergeants killed in a Black Hawk helicopter crash off the coast of Florida.

Because the Marines were killed in a training exercise, policy dictated that flags not be lowered. This did not sit well with the public, especially Veterans, Fox 17 reports

Janna and Metalhead Ned Ditch Work to Sample Buffalo Wild Wing’s Chicken Wing Entries [Video]

It kind of felt like we were cutting class when Metalhead Ned and I took off from work in the middle of the afternoon to go eat wings at Buffalo Wild Wings on Alpine.

I half expected a to see my high school principal, Ryle Keiser (Yes, that's his real name. Sounds like villain in movie, right?) in the rear view, his bald head glowing red with anger, shaking his finger at us school skippers.

Sometimes it's weird being adult: We ditched work early to go sample awesome wings at Buffalo Wild Wings for King of the Wing, and it was totally OK!
