Out and About – Week of December 21st

This is a busy week for everyone. Last-minute shoppers have about two days to get those gifts purchased. Not a good time for people with short tempers to do any shopping whatsoever. If you are one of those last-minute shoppers, please have patience with the sales associates who will wait on you. They have been putting in some long hours …

Out and About – Week of December 14th

There was a time in my life when I had some real issues. They troubled me so much, that I decided to seek out a psychologist. I wasn’t on the verge of going crazy, but I just needed to talk to someone I didn’t know, with hopes of getting some much needed advice. The sessions worked, and I feel much …

Out and About – Week of December 7th

Monday was December 7, 2015. Seventy-four years ago, Pearl Harbor was viciously attacked. This event launched us into World War II. Last summer we visited the memorial at Pearl Harbor. A most humbling experience and one I’ll never forget. A lot has happened over the last seventy-four years. Hopefully we’ve learned a lot about how to get along better with …

By now, everyone probably has had their fill of turkey sandwiches along with all the other goodies that go along with Thanksgiving. If you did any traveling over the holiday, you should be home safe and sound.

Once a year we take a ride over to Ann Arbor for my annual appointment with a neurosurgeon. The doctor, along with another neurosurgeon, spends time discussing the MRI CD that I took along. I have a small tumor on my pituitary gland, and with the prescribed medication, the tumor is shrinking. This is what the two doctors and I …

Out and About – Week of November 9th

What’s in a name? Are you happy with your last name, or do you wish you could change it for some reason? My last name is one of those you have to spell out, if you’re speaking to someone on the phone. I don’t know if it’s because of the “tes” or what. Maybe it’s because there are two “Ts” …

We are now well into the last quarter of 2015. Two months from today, Christmas 2015 will be in the history books. The last quarter of each year is usually the busiest, partially due to the upcoming holidays. Looking first at the current month of October, you’ll notice that Halloween is this Saturday. That one special day when we all …

Out and About – Week of October 19th

There isn’t a lot said about loyalty anymore, at least in a positive way. I have several friends who have been let go by their employers, not because they were not good employees or had done something really bad, but because the company was downsizing, or at least that was the reason that was given to them. The sad thing …
