However, I do want to encourage you folks who have been able to really get along well with your walker, let me tell you what I did…in the very short version! First, let me assure...

By Judy Reiss There can’t be a child anywhere who can’t wait for school to get out at the end of the year. I think that feeling of euphoria still exists, although the school year has been made longer. Of course, I am one of those who thinks that a longer year is a good thing.

By Judy Reiss Have you ever taken the time to look at your toilet and thought about what a terrific piece of furniture it is? Probably not. But think about it. No longer do you or your loved ones have to fight the elements and trudge from your warm house to spend a little time cold and alone every time you need to do your business. Now you have the...

By Judy Reiss Have you ever wondered who the man or woman was who invented a lot of the things we use every day? Well, me neither!

By Judy Reiss I don’t know when I first had bad leg cramps. I think it was shortly after my first child but I wouldn’t swear to it. What I can swear to is that from the very beginning of these cramps, I have really suffered. In the beginning, most of the cramps were in my upper thighs. I was also a lot heavier than I am now and it was almost imposs...

By Judy Reiss When I was a girl, nothing was more exciting than a birthday party. Invitations were sent and the excitement surrounding the anticipation of receiving that invitation was amazing. Once the invitation was received, there was much discussion over which dress to wear and what token birthday present to take. And once at the party, with ev...

By Judy Reiss I have always made it my policy not to really discuss religion or politics in my column. Unfortunately, it seems these days that religion has become a main topic of politics! But if you are very careful you can probably keep the two separate. What do you think? Well, here is what I think…I don’t care what your religion is and I don’t...

By Judy Reiss I think by the time you read this, it will almost be the 4th of July. And maybe it is my age, but this year I am thinking more about the 4th than I have before. The wounds that the entire country felt when the moronic gunman shot and killed 49 people in a gay bar in Orlando have become even more despicable as the birthday of our count...

By Judy Reiss This morning I put a load of clothes into my washing machine and then I forgot about it. When I got home after tea and conversation, I was just thrilled to see it, all wet but clean.
