  • At Life's airport arrivals and departures are at the same gate

     Maybe it’s the season of nearly summer with spring still bearing signs of winter’s chill that is affecting me. Maybe it’s the lingering last days of my college pal suffering with cancer’s invasion on multiple fronts. Maybe it’s the slowly leaking drip of departures opening tears and tears in my circle of friends. I am not sure of the cause, but I am feeling the pain of the effect. There is a heart heaviness I cannot shake.

  • What’s your dog’s pooping personality?

      In last week’s column, I talked about fruits and vegetables and the health recommendations that we all should be eating more fruits and vegetables.

    Well, you’re not alone. My informal survey of magazine covers at newsstands shows that articles on organization and energy are quickly overtaking those on losing 10 pounds and getting washboard abs.

    In our world of 24/7 communications, things move quickly. So, there can be more pressure on getting those items crossed off our lists.

  • What is this mystery plant?

    By John Nelson

    Whatever humor this little plant might have must be truly tasteless. Well, its fruits are tasteless, anyway. The fruits are gorgeous, brilliant red and are dead ringers for the cultivated strawberry. Bite into it, though, and you’ll get a watery flavor, and not much else. Sort of like damp cardboard.
