Young people born between the early 1980s and early 2000s are classified as the “Millennial Generation” or “Generation Y.” For my readers that fall into this category, studies have concluded that you are generally regarded as being confident, self-expressive, liberal, energetic, upbeat, open…

Although Easter is long past by now, I thought this week I’d write about my Easter Day adventures. Truthfully, I could have written about it a lot sooner, even on the day itself, but after all was said and done, exhaustion set in so much so that it took me all of two days to recover.

Often we look to the past to help us deal with the present. “History,” we are told, “repeats itself — or, at the very least, it rhymes.” So, we can gain insight from our past. Unfortunately, history does not always accurately reflect our past. After all, we are the storytellers of our past a…

Ah, springtime. A lovely time. Except, spring brings test time. Ages ago, when I taught for a brief period, I came to dread administering standardized tests. Later, as our offspring went to school, I was aware that they needed to be well rested and fed properly during testing time. Naturally…

In the early 1980s, I did a lot of advance work for Vice President George H.W. Bush. Routinely, Barbara Bush would be on the trip, and I would often be assigned to manage part of her schedule. Not wanting to be presumptuous, I always made it a point to introduce myself to Mrs. Bush. I have a…
