Posts from my old site, Treasure Valley Treats and Tragedies (, presented here with little to no polishing. Read at your own risk (of being annoyed).

This will be the last Treasure Valley Treats and Tragedies post.  I’m not quitting blogging, but honestly it’s time for a change.  The main reason is that I’m just plain sick and tired of this site.  The name is the worst part, believe it or not. I thought the hyperbole was cute when Ms. Golden […]

So my New Year’s resolution was to post more stuff more often, and while I’m sure it will be every bit as successful as all the previous times I’ve made that promise, I figure I should at least make an effort.  The good folks at Blue Ice Vodka apparently wanted me to post, because they […]
