By the time I heard about Buddy, everyone else had already heard about him, too. So I figured there really wasn’t any use in me writing a story about a dog that rode 20 miles on the side step of an ambulance because his owner was inside. Plus, I like to write about stuff no one has heard about.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving on Thursday and a great long weekend, and hope that you have many blessings to remember and give thanks for this day and every day. Congratulations to the Punchers on a hard fought win over Shiner, and it looks like we will all be “talking football” for a few more weeks!

One good invention in my life time are “CAN BISCUITS & ROLLS!” However, convenient they are, there is a down side. It might be just me, but opening a can of these honeys can be a hazard! It’s when you start to peel off the outer cardboard cover and the whole thing pops in your hand.

Have a great Thanksgiving Day. Stay safe and sober; enjoy the food; be thankful for all that you have; love your neighbor. The Art church is beginning to look like Christmas after last Sunday’s “Hanging of the Greens.” You should see it! Begin to plan for the second week of December when the Art church will be distributing the food at the Food Bank.

Silver was probably the most powerful antibiotic, antifungal substance known prior to World War II. During this time, silver was ground up into small particles and suspended in a fluid known as colloidal silver. This type of silver was very expensive and only wealthy people could afford silver treatments. During World War II, the methodology for making penicillin on a commercial scale was discovered and silver treatments became a thing of the past.

By now I will be (and most of you, too) scrambling to get ready for Thanksgiving! If your turkey hasn’t thawed enough in the fridge, don’t panic! Keep these tips from the USDA in mind: In cold water If you forget to thaw the turkey or don’t have room in the refrigerator for thawing, you can submerge the turkey in cold water and change the water every 30 minutes.

Thank goodness. Thanksgiving. Thankfully it’s here. Thank you one and all. Thank yourself. Even if no one else does. Go ahead. Give yourself a pat on the back. Or a nice hug. No hubris implied. Nor vainglory. Just acknowledging yourself. For being there. Or knowing when to leave. For pitching in. Or staying out of the way. Thank yourself. For yourself. For all that you’ve done. And for doing nothing. Just being. Giving. Receiving. Can’t have one without the other. ...

Life has afforded numerous awkward moments during which I have felt “dumbstruck”—a harsh description to heap upon oneself. I considered writing “awestruck,” but I’m a card-carrying member of senior citizens who are “tired and sick” of youngsters, who—during both inhales and exhales—describe everything in the universe as being “awesome.” Reversing “sick and tired” slightly lessens the embarrassment of admitting repeated, self-deprecating foul-ups that seem to have ...

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.
