Google is a great thing. It’s a noun. It’s a verb. It is the ultimate reference resource. Google it is the 21st-century version of the parental command, Look it up. Google has put an end to trivial bar arguments, like Robert De Niro was not in the original Godfather, as well as dinner-table debates such as the phrase is To the manner born, not manor. It’s originally from Hamlet. Google is helpful. Google is smart.
In his glitzy burgundy jacket and ruffled dress shirt, Steve Lipstein made his way across the parquet floor toward the middle of the stage, where he joined hands with Lucy Fitzgerald and broke into a choreographed East Coast swing routine to Footloose. While dancing for a crowd might be the norm for a pro like Fitzgerald, it was a new and nerve-wracking experience for Lipstein, president and CEO of BJC HealthCare and 2013 Dancing with the St. Louis Stars champion.

While selecting music to celebrate your big day can be overwhelming (like everything else about the wedding), it can be simplified if you separate the decisions into ‘categories.’ There is appropriate music for religious ceremonies, as well as secular and ethnic weddings.
You may find this difficult to believe, but 2013 is winding to a close. That’s right. There are just two awkward family functions, one parent-teacher conference, one fight over a space in the mall parking lot, six holiday parties, three vicious hangovers and a partridge in a pear tree remaining, and it’s over. It’s also time for another end-of-year tradition: the Oxford Dictionaries Online online list of new words. Much like the technology to which many of them refer, I don’t know how long some of these will be around. Nevertheless, the distinguished people at Oxford seem to feel they are worthy of an entry. As a service to our readers, I will use each word in a sentence…and also because my children bet me that I couldn't.

Welcome to # 23 Lenox Place, a grand Edwardian-style home designed by renowned architect Guy Mariner. Built in 1904, the three-story house features restrained elements that were, at the time of construction, a major deviation from the over-opulent Beaux Arts period that was coming to an end. Along a private street in a coveted neighborhood, No. 23 is one of twenty-three homes that were built between the years of 1903 and 1906. Its most recent owners, Dr. Coy and Rachel Fitch, made this their home for the last quarter of a century, where entertained friends and family, as well as gathered with colleagues and community leaders to raise money for civic causes that were important to them. Now, take a deep breath and enjoy your step back in time, while each designer brings you aesthetically to the present.
