If one is open for a good dose of humility watching the Scripps National Spelling Bee on ESPN is the perfect cure.  “Minauderies” is so obscure my spellchecker flagged it, yet an eleven-year-old correctly spelled it with the ease that we spell our names.   Nothing...

Yesterday afternoon my son had a successful skin graft on his right hand.  But, let me back up to explain why.  Three weeks ago he was driving in a 1200 mile race down the Baja in Mexico when suddenly a fuel line burst, filled the...

There are some days when the needles don’t hurt.  Today wasn’t one of them.  Today my blood-taker literally pinpointed a nerve.  It also happened to my dog today.  I discovered an attached tick on her side.  Usually she is very patient and stoic when I...

At the Connecticut/Massachusetts border on I-84 there is a unique restaurant that not only has good food but also allows you to browse shelves of books and take a book home – free.  It’s one of my favorite places.  This past week I found a...

Recently I met a man who cannot read.  He doesn’t know I know.  It took me quite a while to catch on.  He is very skilled at covering.  When eating out he will browse the menu and then always say to the server, “I’ll have...
