Truth Decay

“Have you brushed your teeth?” You’ve heard that question since you were young. Sometimes the answer was, “Yes,” other times, “No.” But the truth would be somewhere in the middle. As kids we’d have lots more important things to do. Ten strokes back and forth on the front teeth and most kids think they’re good […]

Things We Hate

“I don’t have time for this!” “Come on people!” “What is going on up there?!” Do any of the above sound familiar? To say Americans “hate to wait” is more than a bumper sticker slogan. We’ll do most anything to avoid long lines at checkout counters and sitting in traffic. Albeit, we don’t mind waiting […]

4 Magic Words

I’ll never forget the first time I head those four magic words. You’ve heard them too. What images popped into your mind when you first heard the words: “All you can eat”?

Christmas is a Great Time to Share

The holidays are upon us and soon, many people will be taking a little time off to be with family and friends – or simply to use their remaining vacation days before they lose them! My guess is during this “down-time,” if you will, a good number of folks will spend more time than usual […]

Silent Saturday

It’s what’s commonly referred to as “Holy Week,” the week leading up the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus. We just celebrated Palm Sunday and later this week is Maundy Thursday, which gives way to Good Friday, and last, but certainly not least, is Easter Sunday. In the midst of this busy, significant week, let […]
