The hidden bits of wisdom, applicable to what's happening in our world today, may provide a new appreciation of our culture or even guidance ..

No Reservations Are Safe Seemingly

Posted on 05/01/2015 05:22:46 PM

Despair may have been part of the baggage they carried on that long, terrible trip forced march from their homelands to the desolate places called "reservations."

Alcoholism is no joke and the seriousness of the problem can only be appreciated once you begin to look at some of the statistics.  And, of course, don't forget the ancillary problems wrought by imbibing too much of the grape and the mash over a lifetime. I'm speaking, naturally, about the incr..

Judith Regan, the undisputed queen of come-backs and a powerhouse in anyone's right, wrote a short article for The Hollywood Reporter yesterday (which I read today) and it caught my eye for many reasons.

Only the Lonely or Maybe Those With Malintent?

Friday night and, coincidentally, it's Spring Break so Atlantic Avenue in Delray Beach, Florida is should-to-shoulder with a very mixed crowd.
