In this day and age of information zooming pell-mell down the electronic highway, often faster than the public can assimilate, there should not be any surprise at people’s varied, and sometimes off-base responses to news which affects them in serious and alarming ways. One outrageously provocative issue is the future of Social Security in the […]Read More Borrowing From Peter To Pay Paul, Or Where’s My Social Security?
So there I was today, standing at the nurse’s station, discussing some of my mother’s medications with one of her nurses. We reviewed what she was taking, and then proceeded to confirm her need to use a walker or a wheelchair for certain activities. While her nurse was flipping through the chart, I was studying her.

Just when I thought I would never have to look at a packing box again, life called and said, “You need to go to Nineveh”. Remember Jonah? “No. Unh-uh. No way.” That’s right. My words, exactly.

I wish you could be in my kitchen right now. There is a pot of Tuscan white bean and kale soup simmering, and it smells good! Close your eyes, and it will transport you to Tuscany on a gorgeous autumn morning, where you can stroll through the streets of Montepulciano. Yesterday we visited Mexico by […]Read More Menu: No Rocks No Woodchips
Living in a small coastal community in the Pacific Northwest is as close to geographic and climatic perfection as ever I could imagine. Weather here suits me, as I am a lover of rain; someone who finds joy and peace of mind during rainy days, or as those of us who share this distinction are […]Read More Storm’s a-comin’
I have lost count of the times I preface a statement with, “at this stage of my life”. I do believe that one glance identifies my particular stage; therefore, mentioning it probably is redundant. So, by way of introduction, I simply say I am a Baby Boomer. Yes, one of those seventy-six or so million […]Read More At This Stage
