Life is more than 600 words to read on Sunday mornings
Posted: February 11, 2017 - 12:00 am

In the middle of my cork board is a copy of my very first column, published on Feb. 8, 2008. It was called, “Meet the new kid on the block.” I gave a small introduction as to who I was.

Life for the children born during a Trump presidency
Posted: January 21, 2017 - 12:00 am

I suppose I should write an article on the inauguration of President Donald Trump but I’m not going to. I support the president and if you watched the inauguration on TV as I did, there is nothing more I can add.

It doesn’t seem like Social Security is going anywhere soon.

Celebrating coming of the new year over the millennia
Posted: December 31, 2016 - 12:00 am

Here we go again, another New Year to celebrate. Looks like probably the only celebration where the whole world celebrates the same event at the same time. In the process of hunting up some information I found that one of the earliest recordings of a New Year celebration is believed to have been in Mesopotamia, c. 2000 B.C. and was celebrated around the time of the vernal equinox, in mid-March... The Egyptians, Phoenicians and Persians began their new year with the fall equinox, and the Greeks celebrated it on the winter solstice. The big New Year's Eve event of today began in 1904. That was the year the intersection of Broadway and Seventh Avenue was renamed Times Square, after The New York Times built a new headquarters there. It had previously been called Long Acre Square.

Coal oil, lettuce, Jesus and astrophysics

First things first, a little advice to us grandparents: I hope Santa brought all the not-so-good grandkids just what they deserve, a bottle of coal oil.

Spending Christmas with memories from all the years
Posted: December 17, 2016 - 12:00 am

“Memories are a special house we build inside ourselves. Where love and laughter linger, where all our past life dwells, on holidays like Christmas we can draw upon the store, reliving happy times and feeling all that warmth once more. Wherever we may travel, this house is always there, to help to blend the old and new, to build on . . . grow . . . and share.  This house can never get too full; just grow from floor to floor, because the joy of memories is always making more.” — Author Unknown

A need for rest, and a need for families to remember

Most will agree that after being married for 50 years, people need a respite from each other.

Remembering those who aren’t at the table this holiday
Posted: November 26, 2016 - 12:00 am

Well I’m back in Fostoria, Ohio, for two reasons: It’s Thanksgiving and I haven’t seen my two brothers and their families for decades.
