Last evening on America's Got Talent a young man played the piano.  It must have been brilliant because he garnered enough votes to move on to the semifinals. The amazing thing was no one could hear him play.  A dancer inadvertently kicked a cable loose...

A distinguished appearing elderly man sat across from me in a waiting room this afternoon.  He must have been eighty and bore himself with dignity.  The journal he was reading indicated a professional background.  I was curious and was about to open a conversation with...

My father was a school teacher.   His brother was a school teacher.  His brother's wife was a school teacher.  My step-mother was a school teacher.  I married a school teacher.  As a school teacher I stand in the midst of a family tradition.  This evening...

A seven layer burrito at Taco Bell is a good value.  It's fairly healthy, but a bit heavy on the calories because of the avocado, the sour cream and the flour tortilla.  What I enjoy about it is each bite tastes different. If you don't...
