He became famous for reporting on the scene of major weather events - and he may even be credited with making bald look cool. But while Jim Cantore has developed a reputation for reporting for The Weather Channel no … Continue reading The Storm King
I have tattoos. Two of them, actually. Ink is not for everyone, though it has certainly become far more mainstream to get tattoos, and lots of them, for that matter. Some people have very strong opinions on tattooing - whether or not it's attractive, whether it makes a difference if you're male or female, what … Continue reading Ink
