The Internet is a powerful tool. Simply by logging online, you can research just about anything and everything in the world. Want to know what a harmonic balancer is? We needed to know yesterday because the one in Jim’s Kia Sorrento went out, so we Googled it. Do you want to know when the next […]

We’ve been spending too much time at home and both had a touch of cabin fever, so Saturday evening I told Miss Terry that we needed to get up early the next day and go for a ride or do something. And then, wouldn’t you know it, I had a bad night and woke up […]

To those of you who supported Donald Trump, congratulations. To those of you who opposed him, in four more years we get do it all over again and maybe this time around your candidate will win. But no matter who you voted for, the election is over. As I predicted in a recent blog post, the […]

My old man used to always say that we are all crazy in our own way, and as long as your crazy and my crazy don’t clash too much, we’ll get along just fine. My career as a small town newspaper publisher, along with some years working in law enforcement, convinced me that Dad was […]
