Ask Adelita: Picture Framing

Dear Adelita,

I recently inherited a priceless work of art and need to have it re-framed.  The last time I had something framed it was a poster and I just took it to Michael's.  I don't think this piece is something I want to take to a hobby store frame shop.  Do you have any suggestions for a local place to…

We Can Do Better

Like everyone else in the Duke City, I was shocked by the horrible events last week.  A four year old was shot and killed in a road rage incident.  A police officer was shot in the line of duty, and thankfully, is on the road to recovery. 

Last week was also heartbreaking in a more personal way.  My dear…

Halloween in the Duke City

What do you do on Halloween? Do you dress up, or go to parties, or do you take the kids Trick or Treating? Tradition for us is to go to my mom's house to help her hand out candy.  There's usually a big pot of posole on the stove and about 100 tiny princesses, pirates, zombies and bumblebees ringing the doorbell…
