Our annual national, or maybe international, Earth Day was celebrated recently, and as usual I had no idea that was coming up until it was half over. Not that I would have necessarily celebrated it, of course, but I might have liked to write about it ahead of time. Doing things on time goes against my nature, as a general rule, but I like to shake things up once in a while. Not that a particular day really matters, though.

This is the beginning of the summer holiday season, “Cinoo-de-Mayo, Memorial Day and Labor Day”. This is my favorite holiday season because the meals usually involve grilling. I think Beef Fajitas is a perfect choice to start off the summer. This meal can all be done in one pan. Sizzling Beef Fajitas 1 ½ lbs (tenderized and sliced in strips) skirt steak or round steak s 2 Onions sliced 1 Red Bell Pepper sliced 1 Green Bell Pepper sliced 1 jalapeño 1 teaspoon garlic powder 1 teas ...

I’m a “WHEEL WATCHER!” Seems the “Wheel of Fortune” has been on the air for thirty one years. I’ve missed some, but more seen than more missed. It comes on at six thirty in the evenings and I don’t want to be disturbed for the thirty minutes it’s on. It better be something important for anyone to call the house between six thirty and seven.

ENERGY, more commonly lack of energy, is one of the most frequent complaints that I hear. Unfortunately, there is not one pill, or one answer that applies to everyone. Every cell in our body is ALIVE with electric energy that comes from the right balance of minerals, fluids, vitamins and other nutrients.

I want to thank everyone who bought books and baked good at the Friends of the Library Book and Bake Sale. It was a grand success again, and I’m amazed at your generosity! Of course, I give a giant thank you to the Friends who ran the sale, sorted books, baked, advertised, and generally wore themselves out for the library’s sake.

One of the things that the City and all of our employees learn and work on regularly is the broad area of emergency preparedness. Most of the time it is just “training” but then the day comes when a situation arises that makes all of that training worthwhile. Sunday night when a severe thunderstorm and very strong winds blew through town was one of those emergencies.

My Uncle Mort’s screeching to a stop on his golf cart isn’t a rarity; seldom, however, does he leave the motor running. I thought this meant his visit might be brief. It was briefer, but several minutes beyond briefest. “I’m the luckiest guy in the thicket,” my 102-year-old kin bragged, “The two-hours-only shoe sale coincides with Maude’s kick-off of spring cleaning.

Imagine no square. No courthouse in the center. No courthouse lawn. Or trees. No quaint shops around it. No businesses or restaurants. No banks. No nothin’. Imagine. Thanks to the early settlers, you don’t have to. Otherwise this would be a town without a heart. No center. No hub. As Gertrude Stein said: “There is no there there.” (Referring to her hometown of Oakland, California. Of course, like all towns, Oakland’s changed. Including a public sculpture of the word

A disturbing trend has taken hold in America of late. People, especially news types, have started using silly, inane words, like ‘disturbing.’ You might want to make a note, here, if you happen to be a news anchor type person – don’t say things are disturbing. If something disturbs you, then be disturbed to yourself.

For the most part of a month I’ve been pretty much STRESSED! However, everything must come to an end and so does the STRESS! What will be will be and there’s nothing I can do about it! One must look on the lighter side of life. So, this week end when the clouds turned into sunshine, I spied a convertible with two inside and the top down.
