We are all the same, but different. How can siblings raised in the same home be so different? Have you ever wondered about that? I have…A LOT. I have two sisters and one brother (deceased). My brother and I were very similar in our thinking – politically and otherwise – but my two sisters and […]

Thank You Mr. President!

I am a political junkie. I love to follow the election results from the primaries as they trickle in and love to follow the various presidential candidates!

Almost every night when I come home from work, my wife asks:  “Do you still love your job?” I readily reply, “Absolutely! I love my job!” Do you? Why don’t you, if you don’t?  What are you doing to change things if you don’t love your job? It’s up to you, you know!  Life is […]

Life would be easier if we acted more like our dogs: It seems that for most of my life, I’ve owned a dog. I’ve had a Pomeranian, Shih Tzu, German Shorthaired/Weimaraner mix, Black Lab, Chocolate Lab, Irish Setter, Brittany Spaniel, Beagle and a Beagle/Heinz 57 mix. I’ve loved each of these dogs and they have […]

I have 23 grandchildren – and I know most of their names, just kidding!!!  Some of my grand kids love to ask me how old I am and what it was like growing up with dinosaurs. As I have reflected on the many things that have changed during my lifetime, I came across a story […]
