  • Brains on the job!
    Friday, January 20, 2017 1:00 AM
    Back from vacation is a transition for students, adjusting from sleeping in, staying up late, traveling, and existing in a home full of upheaval and fun to return to organization and educational expectations. 
  • Don't rage over road rage
    Thursday, January 19, 2017 1:00 AM
    One of my co-workers at the Dallas power plant where I worked in the 1970's had a son who got involved with a Road Rage driver on a Dallas street. According to witnesses, his son became involved with a man that was full of rage from a fight with his wife, and they happened to meet on the street by chance. (Most road rage incidents happen by chance) Instead of just leaving the crazy one alone, just swallowing self pride and ignoring the crazy man that rudely cut him off in traffic, he pursued the man who was full of rage, and it cost him his life. James' son felt safe, since he (illegally) carried a large caliber firearm in his car.
  • Ready for the changes 2017 will bring?
    Wednesday, January 18, 2017 1:00 AM
    Those who read my column last month may remember my struggle to balance a focus on the true meaning of Christmas with expectations I put on myself regarding traditions. The results: I prioritized sending Christmas cards over baking Christmas cookies, so people we care for (who don’t hear from us often enough) would know we’re alive and thinking about them. I also found time for deeper cleaning and decluttering than usual in the guest room before my daughter and her husband arrived. There were no comments about the room, but my daughter said, “You didn’t make cookies?”
  • Obama’s lost legacy
    Wednesday, January 18, 2017 1:00 AM
    The Obamas have said their goodbyes to America. The president and first lady have made their rounds on the late-night shows.
    President Obama delivered his farewell speech the other night on national TV. It was one of his best. The man knows how to write and deliver a speech. No one can ever deny that he’s good with words.
  • Cold, wet and naked
    Wednesday, January 18, 2017 1:00 AM
    Some people view life as a continuous parade of misery and pain. I recently heard a friend explain that it all starts out on day one. He said "Your born cold, wet and naked. You’re welcomed to this world with a violent whack on the butt. It just gets worse from there on."
  • A Reminder: What Insurance Is
    Monday, January 16, 2017 1:00 AM
    "Elections have consequences," outgoing US president Barack Obama once told Republican congressional leaders, and "I won." He was right. One consequence of the 2016 election, in which the Republican Party maintained its House and Senate majorities and got a president of their own party, is the near-certain, near-future repeal of the Affordable Care Act, aka "ObamaCare."

  • Women, Education, Alzheimer’s research, and solutions
    Friday, January 13, 2017 1:00 AM
    According to a report by the Alzheimer’s Association, “Alzheimer’s disease falls more heavily on women than men. Experts say that distinct biological and genetic factors may shape how Alzheimer’s disease progresses in women.”
  • Good neighbors are hard to find
    Thursday, January 12, 2017 1:00 AM
    My Pastor once said, if you have one good friend, you are fortunate. If you have more than one good friend, you are blessed.
  • Old age blues
    Wednesday, January 11, 2017 1:00 AM
    Do you ever get the sinking feeling that you may be advancing a bit beyond your prime? What a shocking realization! It first occurred to me, as I recall, one day when a young girl got up and offered me her seat on the bus. Used to be, not that long ago, I was the one to offer that gallant gesture.
