Sometimes they work, and sometimes they don't. But they never establish a deep and lasting connection with voters.

Despite our plans, life happens

It's been a strange week. My sister and I passed the coursework and pool portion for open-water scuba diving, my son turned 12, and my mother ended up in ICU. You can plan as much as you like, but oftentimes life happens, and not as you might have planned.

Cooking up strategies to save time

The unrelenting rain makes the variegated greens of shrubs, lawns and trees more luscious than ever.
