  • Leaving the post-vacation depression zone

    Like me, you’ve been on this road before, no doubt.

    It’s the road home after you’ve been on a vacation, weekend getaway or retreat. And as that idyllic place - the lake, beach, cabin in the woods or special hotel - begins slowly to recede in your rearview mirror, you want to screech your breaks to a halt, turn around and somehow grab your vacation spot and take it with you.

    Fourth of July suggestion

    I believe this is a special occasion. I should take the time to write to my senators and representative to express my views on current topics.

  • Don't cry over hot and dry conditions

    Any one else remember when grass was green and didn’t crunch?

    After weeks of dry conditions and now days of stiffling, triple-digit high temperatures, yards everywhere have a hazy brown look. For those of us who dispair as summer days disappear to the continual burden of yard care, that’s the sole silver lining in the cloudless skies.

    For yard and garden devotees, don’t shed any tears for next month’s water bill. That only will contribute to the potential for dehydration.
