One of my all-time favorite quotations is found in a biography of Jesus entitled The Desire of Ages.   Jesus and his disciples are at sea when a horrific storm overwhelms them.  Jesus is sleeping and his disciples, some of whom are experienced sailors, have lost...

 We have just experienced the most perfect weather ever for a 4th of July. I am starting to believe that climate change is going to make me very rich.  I see on the national weather map the horrendous heat and vicious storms resulting from the...

I passed a real estate sign today that read, “Home For Sale.”  Really?  Do the children come with the purchase?  What about the dog?  Or maybe Mom comes with the house as a bonus!  Now if the sign read, “House For Sale” it would be...

Today we went to Bed Bath and Beyond shopping for a wedding present. I must confess after being involved with a hundred or more weddings through the years I am not very good at picking out good presents.  I saw what I thought was a...

Monday’s New Yorker Cartoon features a man walking with five Fitbits on each arm.  He says to the woman walking with him, “People pay me to put steps on their Fitbits.”  Just as we cannot exercise for another we cannot diet for another.  We cannot...
