I was going through another one of my ‘disconnect from news phases and turned to some old standbys to provide lighthearted, good natured laughs. The "Mary Tyler Moore Show," "M*A*S*H" and "The Dick Van Dyke" all did their job. They took me back in time and provided a situational humor I could relate to.

  • Washington’s rules still apply today
    Sunday, March 10, 2019 9:41 AM
    If there was ever a time since Washington that the new world was in need of civility and decent behavior, it’s now. Reading through the 110, I chuckled at some of the provincial thoughts as well as longed for the return to some of the basic rules of conduct so long forgotten. These were the rules of conduct he strived to live up to and incorporate into his life.

  • Just put things off until later
    Sunday, March 3, 2019 10:38 AM
    So, here I am again with procrastination worming its way into my daily routine. In some ways it’s uncomfortable, and in some ways it's strangely fascinating. I find I feel less guilty about my newly discovered relationship with procrastination. Perhaps that’s an aging thing. Whatever it is, I guess I’ll think about it tomorrow.

  • Experience the beauty of great poems
    Sunday, February 24, 2019 12:09 PM
    As I read the selected poems ahead of the meeting it dawned on me that I haven’t read poetry recently, and I realized that I missed it. I’m not one who sits for hours and reads poetry, but I realize that poetry is another window into the human experience, both old and new.

  • Let’s not let manners fade away
    Sunday, February 17, 2019 11:15 AM
    It seems like we should be exhibiting and extolling simple manners and courtesy rather than letting these behaviors and values fade away. Life would be much kinder and easier if we lifted each other up rather than put each other down. I can’t imagine what circumstances would exist where the current, ill-defined political correctness excuse should ever trump decency. Can you?

  • Still human decency among us
    Sunday, February 10, 2019 10:23 AM
    At a time when things seem hopeless and concern for the future of our country is on so many peoples’ minds, something happens to remind us that fundamental human decency still lingers inside most of us. We need to pay attention to these reminders that are in plain sight, but are obscured by the insanity that is also in plain sight.

  • Unwanted calls just keep coming
    Monday, February 4, 2019 5:49 AM
    I’ve been home from work for a couple of hours and have already received seven calls, none of which are calls from anyone I know or want to hear from. Fortunately, caller ID helps me screen some calls, but inevitably a few get through. These predators have found new and ingenious methods to fool us. In addition to using local prefixes, some are using our own telephone numbers against us. Recently, I received a call and in checking the caller ID, I found that my number was calling my number.

  • Is this what we have become?
    Sunday, January 27, 2019 10:23 AM
    We pass an insouciant shrug about many things that we used to believe were important parts of our national values and who we were striving to be as Americans.

  • Bring back television shows of old
    Sunday, January 20, 2019 12:08 PM
    I gathered new appreciation for some of the entertainment venues of old. Where are Ed Sullivan and Dean Martin when we need them?

  • Choose your words carefully
    Sunday, January 13, 2019 11:49 AM
    Most of us use words to inform and educate. Some use words to coerce and incite fear. Some try to re-define the meaning of words to advance their own particular agenda. We must pay close attention to make sure that our own worth and our own intelligence isn’t compromised by letting those skilled in the art of the deception make us doubt what we know to be true.
