One thing I remember about my parents was that every so often they would share some much needed advice. They also offered, more than once, words of wisdom.

Out and About – Week of September 7th

I’ve been doing this column for over fourteen years. A lot has changed over the years, some good and some not so good. I’ve kept a daily journal for probably the last ten years.

Out and About – Week of August 31st

I’ve written on this topic more than once, but the situation is getting worse, so I must vent a bit once more. I’m sure there are many of you who feel the same as I do about television viewing.

Out and About – Week of August 24th

This pandemic that we are all experiencing can be very trying on all of us. Our patience wears thin and it’s very easy to be rude to others at sometime or another.
