All I Got for Christmas Was a Colonoscopy

Sunday, January 29th, 2017   3:39 pm |  Category:   Health, Humor, Life   |  Add Comment  | Author:     bio

Christmas has come and gone. The presents have long been stored away in a closet or taken back to the store and returned. The last of the Christmas cookies and candy have disappeared and the decorations are safe in their boxes for another year.   While it is already well into January as I write …more

Saturday, January 21st, 2017   3:29 pm |  Category:   Humor   |  6 Comments  | Author:     bio

When you work in the agri-business field, people just naturally expect you to be a walking Wikipedia when it comes to farm related matters.

Have you ever dreamed of writing a novel, then having it become a best seller and maybe even a blockbuster movie?

There was a time when I owned nothing that started with the letter “I”.   My first actual iPhone sighting happened innocently enough at a sporting goods store some years ago. While I stopped to look at some over-sized fish in the aquarium which was located in the center of the store, a movement to …more

You know how it is when you retire. You have at least a dozen things you plan to do: you will travel, take up golf, knit toques for homeless people, skydive, refinish furniture, work part time, learn Spanish, paint landscapes, volunteer, and figure out how to use a complicated camera. Stuff like that. And, you …more

My legs were aching as I trudged up the slippery stone steps.   The enclosed spiral staircase, dank and claustrophobic, ascended one-hundred and twenty steps up to the top of the ancient castle. It was proving to be more of a challenge than I had anticipated.   Occasionally I would thankfully step aside and lean …more
