Choosing music for your wedding should be one of the planning stage’s more enjoyable decisions, and it should be done together as a couple. 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.
Once upon a time…there was a Rhodesian ridgeback/beagle mix puppy running the streets of East St. Louis. His life was changed one day in 2011, when Blues forward Alex Steen and a team of volunteers working with Stray Rescue of St. Louis found him and brought him back to the shelter. On the way, Steen stopped by his car dealer Bomarito Audi, where he introduced the pup to sales manager Joe Wolk.
Once Upon a Time…the Animal Protective Association of Missouri (APA) took in Tillie, a Yorkie-Shih Tzu mix. Tillie had lived with a family, but they had to give her up because of their child’s allergies.

For the past week or so, the Muyco-Tobin household has been the recipient of a free DOG TV trial, courtesy of our satellite provider. While I haven’t had the chance to gauge what Rowan and Bauer think of it, you can bet their Mommy has been taking notes.
Story: Set “Once Upon a Time, in a Far-Off Kingdom,” a cluster of fairy tale characters profess their hopes and desires as relayed by a genial narrator.

Cinderella, a lowly maid put upon by her demanding stepmother and imperious stepsisters, dreams of attending the royal ball at the prince’s palace. Little Red Riding Hood is eagerly looking forward to a visit to her grandmother’s house in the woods, while a baker and his wife lament they have no children.
Who doesn’t love a storybook ending? I’ve been fortunate enough to have had a few fairy tales play out in my life—and a couple of really momentous ones involve actual tails: tail-waggers, to be exact.
Once upon a time…there was a dog you couldn’t begin to describe with words like ‘active’ or ‘hyper.’ Coal, a lab mix, is the type of dog who will climb up a tree trunk after a squirrel, says owner Linda Palmer. In fact, he’s on a two-year probation after being accused of incessant barking—although Palmer says the charges were exaggerated.
The Champagne toasts and wedding cake may have passed, but there still is time for claiming whose is whose.

No golfer in our town has a better resume than 51-year-old Ellen Port. No one. Port has won 12 Metropolitans, seven Missouri Amateurs and five national tourneys, including four U.S. Mid Amateurs. Not bad for a woman who played exactly one year of high school golf and no golf at all in college.
Happily settled in a beautiful home she and her husband had just built on a lake in Minnesota, this unsuspecting homeowner had no inkling of what was ahead when her husband announced he had accepted a two-year contract that would require a move to St. Louis. “I told David that was fine, I could take my business down there for a few years,” she explains. “And my contribution to our adventure would be finding a house that needed a little fixing up.

First of all, you don’t see fireplaces and newel posts like this in Minnesota. And a carriage house? Are you kidding me?” The couple made an offer on the home, and after some back and forth, the elegant but neglected 1878 town home was theirs.
