Never Too Much of This Good Thing

Happy Groundhog Day Eve! I don’t have to remind anybody that of all the 382 special observances of the days, weeks, and month during February, Groundhog Day is my personal favorite not to mention the most useful. But I have to question the blatant commercialism that is detracting from this great day. It’s quite alright […]

Now I’m Just Milking It

I think it’s happened. I have finally gotten so old that I don’t understand what’s happening. Not that I don’t think I understand or I misunderstand. I don’t understand what’s happening. With milk. I was going over this week’s grocery store ads (you know, those things that come in the mail) (yes, that mail) (yes, […]

On a Clear Day

I was out driving in yesterday’s clear, cold, January afternoon when I decided that I don’t like driving in clear, cold, January afternoons. Well, it’s not that I don’t like driving in clear, cold, January afternoons. It’s that clear, cold, January afternoons come with a tremendous amount of glare. (Probably like clear, cold, July afternoons […]
