Seeking Silver Linings

It seems like 2020 was the year of cancellations, bad news, and ugly media. Now, in 2021, I'm not sure what I was expecting, but it wasn't necessarily more of the same. I mean, after all, there's an "antidote" circulating now, right? Forgive me if I sound naiive. I'm not. But with the arrival of... Continue Reading →

I’m not sure about this book.

I found this book the other day on the shelves of the local bookstore. I'm not too sure about the book's author and where the book originated -- was I in the humor section?

I posted before and... Continue Reading →

Unneighborly Pandemic Thoughts

It's getting hot. That's not unusual for Sacramento at this time of year. But a pandemic, a stay at home order, and the closing of all public and municipal swimming pools is.
