Owner Kate Proctor’s newly-opened establishment a family-run affair.

For many of us, we start and end our days with the simple joys of one of two brewed beverages - coffee or beer. Mornings begin with the familiar smell of roasty, robust coffee beans giving up their intense flavor and aroma to the hot water as it passes through the grounds. The end of the day brings the hiss of an opening can or bottle and the effervescent sound as the liquid fills your chosen beer glass. These two brewed staples, coffee and beer, have become an integral part of day-to-day life, and it is time they join together to make sweet, sweet magic!

Jazz Brunch

Family Dog offers music and awesome breakfast foods

ORONO Brunch is arguably one of the most sublime meals in existence. Blurring the lines between breakfast and lunch, it is a quintessential meal for a lazy Sunday morning (or afternoon, depending on your sleep schedule). 

The Family Dog is known as a hot dog and burger haven, nestled in the old Lissus' Pizza building off Pine and Park Streets (there's an entrance to the plaza on both streets). The huge windows and large tables offer a spacious and inviting dining environment any time. But on Sundays, live jazz music replaces classic rock and signature, made-to-order brunch items replace burgers and dogs.

New habits die hard

Things get surreal when you're pregnant. I can hardly even remember it, and I have an even harder time wrapping my head around the craziness of it all. And though my pregnancy was a doozy as far as high-risk goes, it all ended well.

Things change in weird ways. I learned about gestational diabetes (managed to skirt by it) and how there is a vein that runs down the right side of your body, so you should sleep on your left to help blood flow. Weird and yet cool stuff.

Unusual ways to use regular household products

The next time you're in need of a pest repellent, stain remover or something to remedy an ailment, check your pantry before heading to the store. You might just find what you need and, surprisingly, it may simply be a common kitchen ingredient.

For years people have had their own uses for different products, some of which seem very unusual but work. So I thought I would take some time to surf the web and talk to a few friends to compile a list of great, thrifty and eco-friendly uses for everyday household items that you may not have thought of.
