Imagine yourself driving in bumper to bumper traffic going 80 miles an hour.  Slowing down creates major hazards as people behind you try to merge into lanes on either side to get by.  It is safer to drive with the pack.  Suddenly as you round...

At first I thought I was on Candid Camera but alas I wasn’t.  I should have been.  It was a warm day and a small frappe from McDonalds sounded perfect.  As the teenage girl passed it out the drive-by window I failed to notice all...

By now, if you have not had a bucket of ice water dumped on your head, you have at least seen videos of others reveling in the chilling joy of a miniature Arctic Ocean cascading over their domes.  The ALS challenge has spread across the...

There she sat, calmly looking at us through the glass door of our woodstove.  She did not seem upset and obviously had no idea of her precarious situation.  She was a sparrow that had come down the stovepipe into our family room.  The odds on...

The well-known phrase “If you think education is expense try ignorance” is playing out around the world.  In Liberia ignorant people stormed an HIV clinic and carried away infected patients.  How can we begin to assess the price this is going to cost mankind?  In...

It’s been another quiet summer day in Leominster, Massachusetts.  The hummingbirds have been busy at the window feeder.  It’s hard to believe they will be gone soon on their winter trip to the Caribbean.  We think it’s possible that the orioles are gone already along...

Just two weeks ago if asked what kind of squirrels do you have in your neighborhood I would have responded, “Gray and red.”  I had no idea that we had flying squirrels.  It seems they are nocturnal and since I am diurnal I had no...
