I’m fairly sick of those people, most of them are cancer survivors, who try to turn cancer into some sort of blessing. For most, they are thankful for the clarity that facing death can provide. When life seems short, the ephemera become clearer as does the substance. Time is now of the essence...

Our house has been completely redone, taken a 1950's older brick home and converted to a five bedroom house larger, bigger, better and complete it seems with this grumpy old man in Spirit.    How truly wonderful.   Really please don't ever forget that houses are sponges, they retain...

My mother has been a devout Catholic all her life, not just the going to church kind or the making her kids go to sunday school kind but the good works visiting the sick and elderly kind. So when I heard that a new pope was going to be announced I rushed to the nursing home to turn on the TV...

I have a front row seat at the most amazing production ever created. The name of the production  is '2 Sons and a Daughter'. It was created by two and birthed by one.  To be able to sit and watch my children morph into halfway decent and fabulous human beings is a blessing. My daughter, who just...
