I was very pleased to read A Book Geek's favorable review of "The Sense of Touch."  She writes: "I found the first story, 'Hezekiah Number Three', and the last story 'Be Not Afraid of the Universe' to be two of my favorites and particularly fitting in their placement. I think the first one...

Then there was Michigan. In reading Michigan T-shirts, Michigan media guides, and listening to Michigan fans, one hears a strong argument that the Wolverines are not number nine, but number one! They have a good case, which includes the most Division I-A victories (860 through 2006), the best...

It’s one of those stories that can leave even the most jaded and cynical critic of racist thinking scratching their head; the kind that manages to shock even those of us for whom acts of bigotry and intolerance seem all-too-typical, and who have, sadly, come to expect them in a culture such as this...

I love learning something new.  There's a lot of new things every day so I'm always behind.   Today's new thing comes from Australia.  I'm just catching up on it.  I don't live there so I wasn't paying close attention, so it's new to me.   That happens often as part of my...

At my writing desk, I watch multi-colored leaves flutter into the wooded area behind our cottage. And Black Squirrels are frantically collecting & hoarding walnuts from our trees. It's for a good reason. Fall is sneaking upon us and winter will soon be here. It's amazing that some people...

Last night I watched my first live Mets game of the season. Johan Santana pitched three good innings and the boys in Orange and Blue seemed to have their collective acts together and even Jason Bay got his first hit of the season. I was pretty thrilled to see the game live via internet stream but...

Bessmer, Mich., is a small town about 10 miles east of the Wisconsin border, and in 1973 I moved there to replace a guy who had quit the part of El Gallo in a production of 'The Fantasticks.' For real money, I worked in The Abbey refurbishing it as a ski lodge. More on that later. But then I...

Haunts of Mackinac by Todd Clements My rating: 4 of 5 stars I'm a fan of small, locally produced books of legends. Haunts of Mackinac collects Native American legends and ghost stories which span the island's history from its French fur trapping days, through the British occupation of its fort...
