A member of the Great Lakes Radio family since 2013, Nancy spends most days typing furiously in her office. When not hard at work writing and editing, if this Sriracha enthusiast isn't experimenting in her kitchen, she can usually be found with her nose in a book or in front of a computer keeping up with her favorite blogs, researching topics for future articles, and playing World of Warcraft... FOR THE HORDE! (BattleTag: GingrMadness#1559) Nancy's days of chasing little ones around are over for now, but she looks forward to chasing grandkids around in the future (the DISTANT future). Until then, she's adjusting well to the quiet and spending as much time with her daughters as they can stand. Always in search of a good red and a great read (or a great red and a mediocre read), Nancy welcomes your suggestions on either.

Marquette, Michigan  –  July 15, 2014  –  My pal and I were out walking the other night on the bike path behind Domino’s when we came across this big ol’ toad that was just chillin’ on the pavement. “Did you ever wonder if you could really get high from toad-licking?” my friend wondered aloud. “Nope, […]
