Out and About – Week of October 26th

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 …

Out and About – Week of October 12th

Like many my age, my health is closer to the top of my priority list than it was fifteen years ago. I had a heart attack in 2001, and have been on some sort of medication since then. I’m also a Type II Diabetic. I was on insulin for about a year, but I’m now able to control my numbers …

Out and About – Week of October 5th

Next Sunday, October 11, is the annual Fall Color Tour here in the Three Rivers area. The weather usually cooperates and provides us with sunny skies and cool temperatures. The kind of day where a glass of apple cider or a cup of hot chocolate just seems like the perfect thing to quench that thirst or warm you up a …

Out and About – Week of September 28th

I’ve commented in the past about our senses. Sight, touch, smell, hearing, taste, and even common. This past week we had the opportunity to attend the annual St. Joe County Grange Fair in Centreville. What a wonderful chance to experience all of these precious senses. I was one of the volunteers who shuttled patrons from place to place via one …

Out and About – Week of September 21st

I have a lot of friends and acquaintances who share my interest in Facebook. I’ve learned a lot from Facebook, and it’s a way of keeping up on current events and what’s happening in the lives of those friends and acquaintances. I’m intrested in hearing about trips that my friends are planning, but I wonder why they post these plans …

Out and About – Week of September 14th

I was lucky to be raised by parents who were teachers. I was fortunate to receive my education when cursive writing and grammar were important in the school curriculum. I am even luckier to be married to a retired Language Arts teacher, who keeps me on my toes when it comes to the proper use of grammar. Cursive writing and …

Out and About – Week of September 7th

The month of August doesn’t have any real significance, other than being the last real month of summer and usually the hottest month of the year. The month doesn’t have any holidays in it, yet it usually provides the last chance to get away for a brief vacation with the family before school starts. August is, however, the time when …

Out and About – Week of August 31st

Next Monday is Labor Day, which is a federal holiday. This means that you won’t be getting any mail, the banks will be closed, and you won’t find a single garbage truck on the road. This results in everyone having their trash picked up one day later. It also means that your local refuse Driver will be working the following …

Out and About – Week of August 24th

Stress is not a good thing. Too much stress can be fatal, so we must continue to find ways to relieve it. One way that I’ve found to do just that is to get away from my daily routine for a day or two. We decided to take three days in the middle of the week and go camping. Yankee …
