You know that feeling when you put a location into your reliable GPS, but it takes you somewhere completely foreign compared to your desired destination? Or when you get to that one question on a math test where it seems like nothing that you’ve ever learned could be used to solve the problem?

There has been a lot of talk in the news and on social media about the government shutdown and funding for “the wall” on the border between the United States and Mexico. Although most of us are aware that there is a shutdown, the process that leads to a government shutdown may not be clear to everyone.
It may come as a surprise to some that the diet of the average astronaut is more than the crunchy freeze dried ice cream we all ate as kids. Astronauts must eat a balanced diet in order to complete their celestial duties and perform to the best of their abilities; a diet consisting solely of ice cream isn’t going to cut it.
I don’t know about you, but I was incredibly disappointed to hear that Dottie’s Toffee was leaving their downtown location on the corner of Main and Broad St. However, I’m always looking for new lunch spots in Spartanburg, so when I heard that Le Spice was moving into this space, I was excited to check it out.
