MARK TWAIN IS SPINNING IN HIS GRAVE

The recent decision to rewrite Mark Twain’s, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, must have him more than turning over in his grave—he must be spinning in his grave. It is an American classic and has been called the first great American novel. In fact, the great 20th century American novelist, Ernest Hemingway wrote: “All modern American

NEVER TOO OLD TO LOVE A MUSTANG

I am a grandmother and I drive a Mustang. So what? There is something about certain cars that conjures up thoughts of sexiness, desire, and fun and the Mustang is one of them. However, it was never number one on my wish list until it fell into my lap one day when my nephew called and

CHLOE’S PLACE BREAKING THE CYCLE OF POVERTY

  It is rare when you meet someone so dedicated to a principal she is willing to make personal sacrifices to achieve that goal. Connie Nafziger is that person. I met Connie at the “Y” where she, like the rest of us, is trying to maintain a healthy body. In between grunts, groans, and splashes

WHAT WERE THEIR MOTHERS THINKING?

The above picture is taken from the Columbus Dispatch multimedia site showing how Columbus citizens coped with the recent snow storm. It is filled with people bundled up, cars and snow plows on the highway, and even a cute squirrel in his cozy tree nest. Then there is this picture of middle school students being

IS TED WILLIAMS BEING EXPLOITED?

My piece last week about Ted Williams, the man with the golden voice, must have hit a nerve because I have received some interesting comments. Many people think he is being exploited. In two weeks Ted Williams has gone from homeless to famous to rehab. His story has touched a nation and is a story

I LOVE THE AWARD SHOWS FOR THEIR FASHION MISTAKES

My husband and I are movie nuts and, therefore, we look forward to the awards shows every year to see if our favorites match up with the voting members. But I also like the shows for another reason—the fashionistas. Not that I will have any occasion this year to go to a formal event, but,

WHAT, I’M NOT AN ARIES? HELP!

 The news is most upsetting today. I turn on the computer to learn that the sacred horoscope has been changed. How can this happen? The horoscope dates back centuries to the ancient Babylonians who thought the position of stars ruled our lives. Now, some smart aleck professor from Minnesota says it is all wrong. I

TED WILLIAMS NOT AFRAID TO PROCLAIM GOD GIVEN TALENT

This time last week the only Ted Williams anyone had ever heard of was the baseball player. Then a reporter for the Columbus Dispatch, Doral Chenoweth III, posted a short clip on the internet on a slow news day and overnight Ted Williams went from homeless to a star with job offers reportedly coming from

WALKING THE DOGS WINS NO BEAUTY CONTEST

I have two dogs that are beautiful and loving but have this strange need to go for a walk twice a day. I don’t know why they can’t just cross their legs until April. Since we live in a condominium we don’t have the convenience of just opening the door and letting them run in

ME, MAKE A NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTION?

I don’t make New Year’s resolutions. I believe this is just a platform for failure. However, I do believe in an ongoing effort for self-improvement. I view New Year’s resolutions as a promise that must be attended to for 365 days and at the end of that time there should be a whole new me.
