     BH90210 Anyone that knows me knows that I am a FAN of Beverly Hills, 90210.  My obsession started in elementary school when I was arguing with my mom that “Donna Martin Graduates” was the right thing (I now see my mom’s side – Donna broke the rules and shouldn’t graduate – I get it mom). I had the Kelly, Donna and Dylan dolls. And then I watched the episodes in syndication in the 90’s.  I ate it up with a spoon every day when I came home from school. I became obsessed with Donna and David’s relationship, Valerie being evil, and Kelly being even worse than her.  My friends and…

    Burger King Impossible Whopper Review Fake meat has been all the rage for some time, and you know it is here to stay when even fast food joints are getting in on the action. I am not a vegetarian, but I do not eat beef and haven’t in many, many years, so I am something of an expert on meatless burger offerings. Some are very good, and some are absolutely awful. When Burger King announced the Impossible Whopper, I knew I had to get my hands (and mouth) on one. Inside Burger King To do this review, I took my lunch break at my local Bay Area Burger King in…
