The X-Files’ Dana Scully: Role Model for Girls of All Ages

As Summer is winding down, I decided its high time for me to get back into the blogosphere!  I never intended to be away for so long, but the beautiful weather (mostly) and bike trails called my name far too often to spend much time on the computer.  Summer is for reading and Lake Therapy, […]
