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 13th

During my working years, I spent most of them in some form of customer service. I tried to do the best job possible when it came to satisfying the demands of customers. Today I am on the opposite end of the phone line and have found that in most cases I’m dealing with a computer when it comes to getting …

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 …

Out and About – Week of December 16th

Last week, I sort of left you hanging when I wrote about LED lights. I’m not talking about those lights usually found on the newer cars. I’m referring to those lights you might use in your home. I would like to share something about the lifespan of LEDs. The useful life of LEDs is defined differently than for other lighting …

Out and About – Week of December 9th

A few ways to feel better about yourself: Be forgiving of yourself and others. Floss your teeth. Return all things you borrow. Treat everyone you meet like you want to be treated. I love to watch movies, but I usually wait until they come out on cable, rather than go to a movie theater. The reason for not going to …

Out and About – Week of December 2nd

Welcome to December. This is the final month of a year that has experienced some very odd weather. Last June was cold and wet and a month ago we experienced weather that normally arrives in December and January. It has become very difficult to keep seasonal clothing nearby. No one really knows what the next couple of months have in …

Out and About – Week of November 25th

It has been rumored that if you really want to see “Fall Colors”, you need to travel out east during the month of October. I discovered this to be more fact than fiction. The last weekend of October, found us traveling to Lebanon, Pennsylvania for a family reunion. Lebanon is east of Pittsburgh near Hershey. We traveled twelve hundred miles …
