We had a lot of e-mails and Facebook posts yesterday from people asking if we were okay. Yes, we’re fine, and we appreciate your concern. The bad weather that hammered much of the southeast Tuesday missed us here in central Florida. We got some rain, but that was about it. We have some of the […]

I’ve had several job titles in my life. Soldier, cop, entrepreneur, journalist, newspaper publisher, author, public speaker, and a couple I choose to forget. But I think that at 63 years of age, I have finally found my calling. I’m going to become a remittance man. For those of you not familiar with the term, […]

Lately, I’ve been feeling like a space cadet, and for the first time in my long career as a newspaperman, author, and blogger, I am having trouble coming up with something to write about. That never happens to me. I’ve always prided myself on the fact that I can always think of something to write […]

With temperatures in the mid to upper 90s yesterday in Elklhart, and humidity over 50%, it wasn’t a day to get out and do much. Our MCI bus conversion is so well insulated that we seldom need our rooftop air conditioner to feel comfortable, but yesterday we turned it on early and stayed inside all […]

Yesterday was one of those days where it didn’t seem to me that we were all that busy, but looking back, I guess we were! In the morning I printed off several of our booklets to fill orders that came in with our last mail delivery, which was waiting for us when we returned here […]
