If you’re like me, there’s things you want that you currently don’t have. I guess it’s part of our nature, a desire for something that gets fueled by advertisers that are everywhere you look.

Recently Mr. Harris and I had a conversation that went something like this: I shared how I had come across a dining set that I really liked. “It can seat eight in the same space as the one we have that seats four,” I shared. “How big was it,” he queried. “It was marked 54 inches, but I’m sur…

In the event you missed last week’s column, this is the second part of my effort to confront two of the thorniest issues confronting many in our culture. The two issues are too much weight and too much debt. Since I have vast experience with both, I thought I might share what has helped me i…

Teens are so easily influenced by the things they see, the things their peers do. Some of them use pretty foul language despite coming from homes where vulgar language is never spoken. Some teens drink or take drugs, perhaps being influenced by parents as well as friends.

The definition of technology is science or knowledge put into practical use to solve problems or invent useful tools. It’s interesting to think of how many inventions we have seen during our lifetime. I remember when microwaves were first invented for home use. We were all kinda skeptical ab…

Can 2019 be any different than the last two years concerning the attitude of the negative, hateful, so-called news anchors of the so-called mainstream media directed at President Trump? The odds of a change of heart for them is the same as a snowball’s chance in you know where. They are all …

Have you got that person or persons in your life who love you even though they don’t have to? I hope you have those folks who are not family who you love just as dearly in your life. They make the world a special place as they accepted you into their life willingly, without having to.

The subject of today’s column concerns one of the two biggest issues that have plagued much of American society for the last 50 years, at least. The two biggest issues of which I speak are too much debt and too much weight. Well, lucky for you I have lots of personal experience with both, as…

Americans are justifiably angry that we pay the highest prescription drugs prices in the world and anger President Trump tapped into on the campaign trail. The disparity exists because other rich countries use price control schemes, forcing American consumers to provide the returns on capita…

WASHINGTON – Republicans used to shut down the federal government with the intention (generally) of curbing public spending. Donald Trump’s GOP, in contrast, shuts down the federal government with the goal of constructing a continent-long wall of dubious utility that will require (by one est…

I have seen the major U.S. metropolis’ future, and it is bleak. A New York City Christmas vacation, spawned by nostalgia for the Manhattan where I lived for most of the 1960s and 1970s, was a grave disappointment, and proof that Thomas Wolfe is right – you can’t go home. Happy memories of ca…
