The still-green trees swayed in the wind as the rain poured down in sheets. I stood at my friend’s white quartz kitchen island and put together our frequent supper of a cheese/deli board. When the weather cooperates, we like to sup on the roof deck, with its views of the ever-changing city sky-scape. But clearly the weather was not going to cooperate this evening. So we ate in the living room, sipping Picpoul and watching Homeland. By morning the weather had cleared, and we set out for a walk.
Yesterday was one of the most expensive klutz days of my life. First off, I somehow broke the carafe as I was setting it into the coffee maker, without realizing it, causing freshly brewed coffee to flood the green granite counter. Awesome. Even AmazonPrime can’t deliver a coffee carafe quickly enough for that emergency. Fortunately, I had the Pour-Over Coffeemaker and filters that Melitta had given me at BlogHer17. I hadn’t brewed coffee that way since college, but it all came back to me.
America’s Funnest Cities in 2017 WalletHub today released its list of Most Fun Cities in America. It comes as no surprise that Las Vegas landed the top spot. Right below at #2 is Orlando. New Orleans placed a respectable #8. Honolulu trails at #21. Milwaukee had a surprising showing at #34. And coming in at #45, I’d say Boston got dissed. But perhaps I’m biased.

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
