After much thought, I have decided to take a hiatus from writing my column. Even as I’m writing this, it’s hard to believe it’s been over nine years and 450-plus columns. Before I go any further, I want to thank all of you who have read the column, commented, called and written me about the column. The calls and notes thanking me were appreciated; the comments taking umbrage were actually helpful.

  • Where do phrases come from?
    Monday, March 1, 2021 7:37 AM
    Do you ever think about phrases or sayings we use or hear every day? Do you ever stop to think about why we have continued the tradition and where they originated?

  • Find the positives of winter
    Sunday, February 21, 2021 9:47 AM
    Seeing the minus sign in front of the numbers on the thermometer for days in a row has certainly affected my attitude. Then I think how silly that is. I’m an adult. It’s winter. We’ve had many great, tolerable winter days. We need the moisture. What’s the big deal? I have food, clothing, fireplace, working furnace, adult beverages, so I can certainly get through a few days of inconvenience.

  • Trust rates essential for success
    Thursday, February 18, 2021 7:47 AM
    When I heard that George Schultz passed away, I remembered reading something he recently wrote about the importance of trust. I thought I had cut it out, since I still resort to the old-fashioned way of keeping articles and other things of interest. So I went through the overflowing file. Lo and behold I found it. He actually wrote this a couple of months before his passing at age 100.

  • There can be too much of a good thing
    Saturday, December 5, 2020 11:02 AM
    As I was sorting through one of my closets, I realized I have too many bags, too many shoes and too many sweaters. We all have fetishes. Mine are the above three. Well, I might have a few more, but let’s leave it there right now.

  • Where do superstitions come from?
    Monday, November 9, 2020 7:32 AM
    Fate is being tempted, if one believes in the many superstitions that have traveled through the ages. Things like tossing salt over your shoulder, not walking under a ladder, knocking on wood, not stepping on a crack in the sidewalk and other things many do or avoid doing – just in case – show us that we are not immune to the fears passed down through generations.

  • There are ‘if onlys’ in life for everyone
    Tuesday, November 3, 2020 7:37 AM
    Most of the “if onlys” have to do with things we wish we could do differently, with the extra help of hindsight. Life never seems to work that way.

  • Voting key part of our democracy
    Sunday, October 25, 2020 8:20 AM
    So instead of hand-wringing and worrying about the next few weeks, which has me in a state of perpetual hives, I decided to take a little metaphorical stroll through our relatively short history of elections, party platforms and other campaigns, which can’t come close to the theater of the absurd to which we bear witness.
