As a rule, I generally avoid making predictions about events until after the event has actually occurred. Call me a rebel, but I find it easier to prognosticate accurately from the perspective of hindsight. Most of the time I’m able to foretell things exactly as they happened. So, sometime after 7 December, I plan to let my readers know what will happen to Paul Rosolie on that date.

BURRRRRRRR! I have yet to understand why, the “time and temperature” line is never busy in the summer time? However, with the first cold snap, you get a busy signal! Guess, no one wants to know how hot it is, but how cold it is, is different! Okay, it’s still considered Fall by my calendar.

Parasites - Yuck! Parasites are an often overlooked cause of certain health problems today. Parasites are actually very common in nature and more common in humans than we would like to think. Approximately one half of the population of the world carries at least one form of parasite. If you add yeast/fungus (another form of parasite) to that, it includes almost the entire world population. Having good hygiene does not exempt us from parasites.

Now the story can be told. If necessity is the mother of invention, surely resourcefulness is a first cousin. Sometimes it cuts off anxiety—and other “downers”—at the pass. A mom well down life’s highway decided to “come clean” on how she’s avoided both “wash day blues” and “ironing day blues.” A system she implemented long ago—well before housewives were rescued by “wash and wear” clothing--saved her countless hours in the laundry room. She had no aching back, a ...

Justin Wilson once said, “A pirogue boat ain’t safe for one people, let alone three.” That’s what I was thinking as I got into Roger Pearson’s pickup Saturday morning with Roger and Pedro Mauco, who is from Venezuela, to go fishing in Arkansas for my very first time. We were headed for the Little Red River, north of Pangburn, and behind Roger’s pickup was a trailer, and on the trailer was a twelve-foot pirogue boat. Actually, it wasn’t a pirogue boat.

Everyone who has used a telephone to do business has been put on HOLD! I can wait for a minute, but after that I get impatient. So, I have to wait for a live person! I don’t want any loud obnoxious music nor do I want to hear about a new service! I’m going to try a different tactic the next time this happens.

I LOVE salad! But not iceburg lettuce salad with a few veggies thrown in. I’m talking any kind of good looking bright colored greens, with veggies, a healthy potion of toasted nuts, dried cranberries, grapes, and any other goodies I can find to throw in. I also found this article with information on making your own salad dressings to be quite helpful.
