My granddaughters spent the afternoon making gingerbread houses.  Our table was immersed in Graham crackers, pretzel sticks, Gummy Savers, marshmallows, multi-colored Sprinkles and lots of frosting for glue.  But where I asked was the gingerbread?  What a stupid question.  Gingerbread houses are not about gingerbread. ...

I have to tell you I really messed up.  This was a major league mistake.  After I explain you will understand what an idiot I have been.  It all started about three years ago.  My wife came home one afternoon from the beauty parlor with...

Is there anyone over the age three in this country that doesn’t know seatbelts save lives?  So why is it a police cruiser in Massachusetts that crashed while pursuing a runner has two distinct head smash marks on the inside of the windshield?  Could it...
