  • Have you ever wanted to talk with a World War 2 veteran? Maybe to find out what it was like back then.

    There aren’t many living after a war seventy years ago.

  • Although the new book, “The Next America,” written by Paul Taylor and the Pew Research Center,” offer many staggering statistics based on demographic research of the Millennials, I would like to mention only one for now: “Today’s Millennials -- well-educated, tech savvy, underemployed twenty-somethings -- are at risk of becoming the first generation in American history to have a lower standard of living than their parents.”

  • A hundred or so years ago I was a cub reporter working for Marlis Gaildene Hamilton and learning more about news than a guy who started out in the toy department (known as sports) should. Back in those days, sports writers didn’t often make the jump to news. I guess the powers that be figured if we had trouble dealing with grouchy coaches we’d never make it with even grumpier politicians.

  •   Last week, after much consideration, I sent the following message: “I am in serious need of unconditional love. So I am going to have a gathering on Friday night for women I love unconditionally.  We will start at 6:30. I hope you all can make it!”

  • Well, I have absolutely no problem knowing when I met this nifty gal which was way back in her teen years when she waitressed at our A&W. What a great waitress she was, too. In fact, Bill Zach, my father-in-law, moved her from car hop to waitress after only two weeks. That’s the ultimate compliment!
