“Springtime is officially here, which in Myrtle Beach just means that it’s nice and balmy kind of like it was last month and kind of like it will be next month too. But why not celebrate our atmospheric good fortune with a tradition that most other people probably enjoy this time of year because they …

“It’s that time of the year in Myrtle Beach to celebrate everything green. Well, it’s always pretty green here, but spring is decidedly in full sway now, and what makes it that much greener is the celebration of St. Patrick’s Day, and all the people who will be sporting that color as a result of …

“Ah me, I’m such a die-hard romantic.  I just get even more blissed out than usual when Valentine’s Day rolls on by and pauses to stay for 24 sweet hours in our calendar of days.  Everything is pink and red and white (just like me!) and sparkly (just like my personality), and so really, what’s …

Happy New Year to all of my fans and followers, as well as everyone else who isn’t a fan or follower of mine… but you should be.  Why aren’t you?  I live for sharing my talents with the world.  Anyhow, 2020 is here! And not only are we celebrating a new year, but also a …

The month of October never really feels quite as much like fall as perhaps some other parts of the United States, as we enjoy such continued warm, beautiful and sunny weather.  But the last day of the month, Halloween, finds us here in Myrtle Beach just as it does everyone else across the country even …

Oh boy, September is finally here.  That makes me excited for several reasons.  First, it means I won’t be so cold.  Yes, you read that right— cold.  When it’s hot outside, the air conditioning at the Insider office reaches arctic temperatures.  Now that we are having cooler days, it shouldn’t be turned on so high.  …

Ah, lolling about on my doggie bed, or out in the sun or shade of my balcony as the spirit moves me— it’s officially the dog days of summer— one of my most favorite times of the year in addition to my birthday, because I don’t need an excuse for being incredibly lazy.  I just …

Oh boy summer is here!  In addition to watermelons, peaches, picnics, and barbecues (my enthusiasm usually lies pretty close to my tummy), this season also brings us the Fourth of July which involves all of the aforementioned things and then some.  People flock to Myrtle Beach to celebrate our nation’s birthday, and for good reason.  …
