My Top 10 Favorite “Spooky” Halloween Movies

  Call me a nerd – a geek – a throwback to weirdness.  Whatever…  I LOVE the old horror flicks and never more so than around Halloween.  Now, the word horror is pure conjecture where the classics are concerned as there is very little to be horrified by.  In fact, hilarity may be a better… Read More My Top 10 Favorite “Spooky” Halloween Movies

Little Golden Books

I would guess that very few hands are in the air, as generations of children can count them among their earliest memories. In the early 1940s, the idea to develop a line of children’s books that was colorful, affordable, and readily… Read More Little Golden Books

Memorial Day

Memorial Day   I walked beside your stone today and tarried there to ponder. Who were you when once you lived upon this earth?  I wonder… A faded flag, a marker carved tells me you stood with honor and to that end your life was lost for ground you now lie under.   Were there… Read More Memorial Day

Feed Them… Baskets of Love

Feed Them…  Baskets of Love I’m absolutely CRAZY about this idea! It’s an outreach project with such a huge impact, but so easy to do and with the potential to involve a whole community. It’s hard to believe that in this country, in this time, there are actually people who don’t get regular, healthy meals… Read More Feed Them… Baskets of Love

J.D. & Huff — Serving as God’s Hands

Serving as the Hands of God…  J.D. & Huff   His name was David, but I don’t think many people knew that.  He went by “Huff” or “Huffy,” a shortened version of his surname and it better suited him all the way around.  Huff was a character to be sure.  A visible presence in our… Read More J.D. & Huff — Serving as God’s Hands
