Quiet! Commercial Time! Super Bowl XLVI

Last night as I watched the Super Bowl in my living room, I looked around me and thought about how weird it all was. We’re all definitely a bunch of weirdo’s. “This is like the Super Bowl party for misfits” – me “Yeah? How is that any different from the rest of our life?” -Sher… Read more »

A Holiday Meal to Remember…or Six

This post is slightly ahead of the curve – JUSTembrace has only hosted five of its six holiday meals so far.  We have one more in less than a week, and the whirlwind of six turkeys, endless green beans, corn pudding and mashed potatoes will be behind us.  Dish after dish will have been washed and put… Read more »
