By | January 1, 2023

[January 1, 2023]  Many attended New Year’s Day parties with friends and family.  But as I get older, I am asleep at midnight unless I have to get up to deal with a challenging prostrate.  In celebration of the New Year and looking back at 2022, I put together some pictures I thought might fit in. ————– Please… Read More »

[December 24, 2022]  Looking back on the many television shows I watched growing up, one of my favorites was The Honeymooners, starring Jackie Gleason.  The show follows the lives of New York City bus driver Ralph Kramden (Gleason), his wife Alice, Ralph’s best friend Ed Norton and Ed’s wife, Trixie.  Most episodes revolve around Ralph’s poor choices in… Read More »

Turning to Good Deeds

By | September 10, 2022

[September 10, 2022]  Tomorrow is the 21st anniversary of the deadly terrorist attack on America.  As many of us prepare for the ceremonies, gather with friends, and think about where we were and what we did that day, I’m recycling an article I wrote two years ago.  It’s a good one, and there were many good comments.  The… Read More »
