Thoughts on St. Patrick's Day

On March 17, in this country and in our community we celebrate St. Patrick's Day, a day celebrated throughout the land with parades and merriment and music.

Children of Eden musical good for the whole family

It still amazes me that in our area there is a community theater that is as spacious and well run as any professional theater in a major city. Social Circle is the home of this special theater. It's homey and comfortable. It's called, of course, the Social Circle Theater.

This past Sunday my wife Molly and I went to the theater to see a special play called "Children of Eden," written by Stephen Swartz the creator of "Wicked" and "Godspell." I have to admit that I didn't quite know what to expect in a two-act play that ...

Wild weather dampens papers, spirits

I know we need the rain and everyone is grateful for the recent heavy rains including me, but the cold I'm not so sure of.

A Christmas cruise from hell

One year the kids were all gone, and Molly's mother talked us into going on a cruise, so we booked one from San Diego to Puerto Vallarta with stops at other famous Mexican resort destinations. I could say this cruise was really the cruise from the deepest parts of hell, but believe me that would not even touch how bad it really was. At first I was excited to go. I was ready for a week of some Coronas and scenery watching.

Christmas traditions from me to you

I have always loved Christmas and its traditions; even as I have grown older, I find that really deep in my heart I still believe in Santa Claus and the spirit of the whole season, and I just can't wait until I see the "Frosty the Snowman" and "Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer" re-runs at this time of year.
