Reiss’s Pieces

Reiss’s Pieces

  When you go to the movies, do you ever wonder what happened to those old movies that were all singing and dancing and everyone ended up happy? And all those old wonderful actors and actresses whose pictures you had on your bedroom wall because they were so wonderful! Well, they are definitely a thing of the past. No longer can you leave the...

Watching T.V. these days is bad enough, but if you watch the news, it is like watching and listening to a scary fiction novel! It’s bad enough that the world seems to be deteriorating and fighting amongst themselves, but how about what seems to be happening here in our country? I am not sure that good news or uplifting news was ever the main topic...

  One of my favorite old fairy tales is the one about the old farmer who goes to a wise man for advice because of how small his house is. The wise man tells him to move all his cows into the house. After a week the farmer goes back to the wise man and complains that the house is now smaller than ever. The wise man tells him to go home and move...

  I decided that because I have been so upset about taxes, etc., it is time to write something that is a little lighter! And because I haven’t told you any cat or dog stories, it is about time. Now, I can’t remember if I ever told you abort our Yul’s adventures or not. If I did, here it goes again, and if I didn’t, you will hardly believe it....

  After I had ranted and raved about our property taxes and how they were affected by our local schools, I decided to look into colleges. Well, if you thought I was upset and shocked with our property taxes, let me tell you about colleges and how much it will cost to send our babies to further their education. Now keep in mind, all of our youn...

  I am going to do something today that in the 30+ years I have been writing to you, I have never done before! And before I begin, let me explain to you why. A few months ago, I was talking to a friend about the best recipe in the world to make for a group of friends, or if you have to take a dish to a school or church supper. And of course, s...

    If there is one thing that drives me crazy these days, it is taxes! Now I want you to know that I know absolutely nothing about how much we have to pay, but I do know that for us, the amount of property taxes we have to pay is impossible. When we bought our house 47 years ago, our property tax was $300. Again, I am not a complete dope...

  One of my favorite memories of being young and in school, was when I was in third grade. I can vividly remember the thrill of learning that we would not only learn how to write in cursive, we would learn by using ink! How excited I was when each one of us got a glass jar filled with ink that was placed in the inkwell on our desk. And then we...

  I have decided that the more I watch TV these days, the older I feel! I am not talking about watching the programs that I used to watch when I was younger, although they would also be a good example, I am mainly talking about the news! Every night, regardless of what else I may be doing, I sit down and watch the world news. And right from th...

  I know that many of you are close to my age, so I decided to write something that will not only make you feel good, it will also give you the opportunity to reminisce about the “good old days.” One of my more interesting memories is about going to the movies when I was young. And by young, I mean from about age 7 to 12. We lived in Cranford...
