At least it wasn’t anthrax

  I can’t imagine that anyone reading this has never made a mistake in their life. Some little, some major, but I am willing to bet each of us have made a boo-boo at one point or another. Yesterday was busy in the newsroom (as it tends to be) when a news alert came across […]

Things we do for love

Love will sometimes make us do crazy things. Other times it will make you remember what is important. And in some cases, it will make you change your plans to accommodate it. I was out at my friend’s farm a couple of weeks ago when I checked my phone to find two missed calls from […]

Out There in T.V. Land

I never really watched Seinfeld. In the 1990s I was in high school and was way too caught up in 90210 and Melrose Place to make that leap. But, apparently, if I am so inclined to binge watch it, I can on Hulu (assuming I’ll subscribe to Hulu). Hulu purchased the exclusive rights to the […]

I do love a good intrigue

Was there another shooter on the Grassy Knoll? Are there really aliens at Roswell? Are the Illuminati primed to take over the world with their New World Order? I don’t have answers to any of these, but I do love a good conspiracy theory. Some are really far-fetched, like the creation of humanzees. (Seriously, look […]

Keep on keepin’ on

It’s been a busy couple of weeks, and yet I feel like I got very little accomplished. I did manage to get my tomato and marigold seeds started indoors. The weekend before Easter, I was running around like a chicken with my head cut off. On one side of my kitchen, I was filling seed […]

Not in Kentucky, but still in the Big Blue Nation

It’s March Madness time again. I can’t say I watch sports on any regular basis. I can’t even claim WWE since that’s not sports — that’s sports entertainment — so it doesn’t count. But when this time of year rolls around, I can’t help but feel the twinge of blue blood begin to flow in […]

Spring forward, fall back

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Sorry, had to get that out. Man, has this weather not been amazing? It has been great feeling the warm sun and watching my yard go from a frozen tundra to a massive mud pit. I can’t say my furry child Missy is as happy about the climate change. While the sun is […]

Bread and milk anyone?

Well, my little brother and the kids got a good dose of what an Iowa winter feels like last week in their own backyard. Much of my home state of Kentucky was hit by inches upon inches of the white four-lettered “s” word we pretty much take in stride around here. I tease him mercilessly […]

Making progress

Well, we’re two months into 2015, and slowly but surely I am making progress on the personal goals I shared with you for this year. Seriously. Yeah, I know, I can’t believe it either. My zombified birthday has come and gone — pink, flesh-like cheese ball shaped into a head and all. Everyone seemed to […]

Why I love my job

Sure, there are days that work is stressful, no matter what your vocation is. If I said the newspaper biz was always peachy keen I’d be a liar. But there are days that make me smile and be glad I do what I do. Last Saturday I was privileged to watch students gather at Sibley-Ocheyedan […]
