Celebrate is a word few people currently attach to the culturally-challenged Columbus Day. It’s not the 1492 date that’s changed, but how we remember and reconsider it. And America isn’t the only country with such a contentious historic holiday. Australia’s national holiday, Australia Day, is attacked each year because it memorializes [...]

A package arrived from Armenia this week. Inside were several special gifts including Armenian fruit leather. There is nothing more delicious (in my admittedly biased opinion) than homemade—IN ARMENIA—fruit leather.
