Good Morning. It has been a remarkable week of nonseasonal weather to enjoy in so many ways. If every other facet of our lives were to be so pleasant, then we could rejoice in the glory of it all. But the reality is it is just a fun little hiccup in the mundane trend of the year of 2020. It’…

Good Morning. I just want to wish my readers far and near a wonderful week. It seems that my online column for The Titusville Herald will not appear until Friday, as per The Herald’s policy. This means that some of my items in the column will be out-of-date each week due to this day-late del…

Good Morning. One third of the month is gone and it hardly feels as if it is past the first week with such a low-keyed Labor Day. Time seamlessly is drifting towards the autumn season, and only the dropping leaves of trees are marking the change. Many places that were open only for the summe…

Good morning. It seems that things have hit a rut. Little of the new news is positive and the negative vibes are consuming our environment and home space. Gardens are beginning to fail with plants wilting and non-producing growth. We can always hope that neighbors are sharing their bounty an…

Good morning. It is so nice to have the bridge repair work completed, and have state route 408 open again. It brings back a small measure of familiarity and comfort to our lives, while so much is still unpredictable and challenging. Now onward to the rest of the country and our everyday lives.

Good Morning. This is said more of habit than of spirit, for me this week. I lost my husband on Monday, so I cannot think of much in the way of pleasant thoughts to share this week. Forgive me for the lull, but I will try harder next week to do better.

Good Morning. Saturday will be the first day of summer. With the way the year has been thus far, we may have to look very hard to see it for more than a few days at a time. This year has lived up to its symbolism, with it being 2020, like the notion that good vision is 20/20. We have had to …

Good morning everyone. I hope that you are not suffering from cabin fever with all the snow and quarantining that we have had lately. It is annoying to have the TV and news consumed with all this negative news. Trying to find alternative or positive experiences is challenging, at best.

Good Morning. Tax day was yesterday, and hopefully everyone got them filed on time and can now take a sigh of relief in having them done. In case you didn’t, in March the IRS extended the deadline to July 15, 2020 for this year. There is always some comfort in getting to the day after they a…

Good Morning. The new month of April just started, but the sad part of that is there was no one around to pull a prank for April Fool’s Day on, with this stay-at-home order that is in place, or with the social distancing that we are to be following.

Good Morning. It has been a bit disturbing to wake in the morning darkness again. How long does it take your body’s internal clock to adjust to daylight savings time? I was enjoying the morning sunrise, with birds chirping and glimmers of the sun filtering through the bare branches of the tr…
