  1. As Faith Hill and Tim McGraw come to Tampa, here's why their love fascinates and endures

    Music & Concerts

    I couldn't tell you if any of this made it to air, though, because I didn't see it on TV. I was standing a few feet away, watching Hill and McGraw cuddle live.

  2. From the food editor: Five things I'm enjoying in the food world right now


    Sometimes your notebook is scribbled with little thoughts here and there, things you come across in the food world and want to share but aren't sure how or when. Well, folks, I need to get some of this off my chest. Here is a somewhat random collection of culinary things I am really enjoying right now:

  3. Michael McDonald and Kenny Loggins: Yacht rock paradise at the Clearwater Jazz Holiday

    Music & Concerts

    Frosty wine coolers and a misty sunset sea breeze. White linen pants and a tilted captain's hat. Coconut milk and an awful lot of rum.

    Kenny Loggins performs during Little Kids Rock Benefit 2016 at Capitale on October 5, 2016 in New York City.
  4. New podcast: Songs for an '80s Halloween playlist


    It has to start with Thriller, right? No spooky song playlist from the '80s omits the Michael Jackson classic. Well, our list doesn't. (Though we do give Thriller its due.) Instead, this week's podcast aims for picking some more unusual tunes. (Okay, and a few obvious ones too.) 

  5. We asked Neil deGrasse Tyson to rate 'space things' like 'Star Wars' vs. 'Star Trek'
