Most of my friends who have been adopted wish, upon adulthood, to find their biological parents.  There is something that completes us when we find our roots.  I know a man who wishes he had been adopted.  His biological roots, his parents, did not provide...

I'm not sure why but for some inane reason I was thinking about Superman on my way to school this morning.  Just imagine having to wear black-rimmed glasses all the time so people wouldn't recognize you.  Then there is that Kryptonite thing.  Realizing that bad...

When we talk about our calling most of us respond with the name of a career or a profession.  At our college we talk to our students about their calling to be a teacher, a nurse, a businessman, a pastor, a tradesmen or a service...

Our yard is one vast nursery.   We have a cardinal nest, a robin nest, a chickadee nest, a catbird nest and a phoebe nest. There is a squirrel nest, a chipmunk nest and a rabbit nest.  I'm sure there are more but those are the...

I opened a drawer this afternoon and discovered it jam-packed with out-of-date computer STUFF.   There was a tangle of cables and mouses (mice).  We got our first computer in the early 1980’s.  It was a Radio Shack TRS-80 and had huge internal memory of four...
