Out and About – Week of January 27th

There’s something in the air because of something in the trees at a local coffee cafe on the Rocky River here in Three Rivers. In the trees are some wild berries. These berries have a special affect on the local birds. It seems that the Wax-Wing birds love these berries. In fact they love them so much that they consume …

Out and About – Week of January 20th

Last week, I listed some suggestions about what advice a man might give his son. I promised to share more advice in a future column. However, I feel that before I share more advice for sons from their fathers, I should give equal time for advice mothers might want to give their daughters. Here are some suggestions for just that: …

Out and About – Week of January 6th

Welcome to 2020. I didn’t stay up long enough New Year’s Eve to watch the ball drop in Times Square in New York City. It was rumored that Barbara Walters might host the event so that at the stroke of midnight, she could say, “I’m Barbara Walters and this is 20/20.” Whether this happened or not, I’m sure I’ll find …

Out and About – Week of December 30th

“Breakfast”. Probably one of my favorite words. I can’t remember ever starting a day without having at least something to eat. There are many who just have a cup of coffee and they’re ready to go. Usually one cup of coffee is good enough for me. I know a few people who consume a whole pot of “Go Juice” before …

Out and About – Week of December 23rd

It’s Christmas 2019. You still have time to get out and pick out those last minute Christmas gifts. Growing up, this is the time my family would gather around the Christmas tree and open our gifts. As a child, I received an allowance of thirty-five cents a week. To earn this, I was at my mother’s beckon call when it …
