Out and About – Week of April 16th

I’ve always thought it would be nice to learn sign language. This would come in handy, especially when attending a social function with your significant other and wanting to share a thought or two without speaking out loud.

If you owe the IRS, you have until April 17, because the fifteenth falls on a Sunday. I wish you all …

Out and About – Week of April 2nd

I mention this every year, because I think it’s interesting that I’ve never run out of something to say every week for the past twelve years. There have been many changes over the years. Some were good and some not so good, but like everyone else, I’ve done what I can to adapt to them. I have a nicer office. …

Out and About – Week of March 26th

At one time, there were municipalities where your vehicle had to have a village or city sticker displayed on a corner of your windshield. In order to be issued a sticker, your vehicle had to pass a safety inspection. The inspection included having a working horn, headlights that weren’t broken or burned out, a working license plate light, and tires …
