Will Work for $60 and Pie

I was paid in pie. $60 bucks and pie. The pie was a surprise. A modern day twist on Oliver and Antoinette...

No Photoshop for this chick!

As much as I love performing on-stage, it is the human connection off-stage that has a lasting impact on me. Take Patricia Dolloff. I don't know her well. I met her on the beach in Nantucket with her young daughter when I was in town to perform.

Mo Stops Traffic

There’s a sign in the UK for “Elderly Crossing.” The first time I saw it it cracked me up - two calcium deficient older folks trying to make their way across the road. The UK isn’t known for its abundance of vitamin D.
