The Real Hero (vol.656)

  Maybe it’s because we are the movie generation, but it just seems natural to put ourselves in the role of the hero. We are Tom Cruise in Top Gun, Mel Gibson in Braveheart and John Wayne in the westerns. We are wired to assume the role of the hero as we watch the story unfold. If nothing else, we… Continue Reading

A Myriad of Voices (vol.655)

We used to play a game where a blindfolded person would walk an obstacle course filled with impediments and piles of assorted gooey substances while two people would try to verbally guide the sightless person’s steps.

Life & Death (vol.654)

  Monday of this week brought both life & death. A death in our church family and a birth in our church family too. Lots to celebrate and lots to grieve. It’s the cycle of life, I guess.

Easy Go (vol.651)

  In 1936, Fort Knox in Kentucky became the depository for the United States government. That’s when 500 railroad cars carried the U. S. gold reserves to the site. Currently it is estimated that Fort Knox houses $180 billion in gold.   That my friend, is a lot of ill-gotten booty. Or is it ill-booten gotty?   My name is… Continue Reading

Dental Floss & Sinking Sand (vol.650)

  Breaking News: An Associated Press investigation has uncovered evidence that despite decades of public health recommendations to the contrary, flossing your teeth regularly has minimal to no health benefit.   What?

More Than I Deserve (vol.649)

He told the officer he was struggling financially and he had to choose between renewing his registration and feeding his kids.   Mr. Carlo received a citation for his offence.
