Reiss’s Pieces

Reiss’s Pieces

This very morning, I decided that I would contact the Keurig people and see if they could help me with my coffee maker, which is driving me crazy! Lately when I try and make a cup of tea, it only gives me about 1/3 of a cup. Now that might not sound too bad but in the morning hours when I need that tea boost, it drives me crazy. I called the number...

  I don’t know about you, but I get more catalogs than you would think possible! In my opinion, the cost of mailing a letter for you and me is outrageous at best. If they (whoever they are) would charge the catalog people a fair cost to send their stuff, we would not have to raid our savings just to mail a letter. Keep in mind, I am so old tha...

  This winter, I have been reading even more books than usual. I love reading and have always been a voracious reader, and it started before I even went to kindergarten! I am not sure if I could read at such a young age because we didn’t have TV, or if I just learned when I was young and really loved every minute of it. But my reading ability...

  When I was in college I had to write a thesis about something pertinent, and I decided to write about what happened to the Jews during WWII. In order to write it, I had to read anything and everything that I could find on the subject. At the same time, my best friend and someone who also shared the same major as I did, was Jewish. I had spen...

  The older I get and the more time I have to sit and think about things, the more I have decided that the best idea that I have ever heard of is “ pay it forward.” If you don’t know what “pay it forward” means, let me tell you. It means that you should do to someone else a good deed, especially if someone has been good to you. And this winter...

I have had so many people talk to me about their childhood and how different things are today that I really began to think about it. And I have to tell you that I also believe that things are different today and I am still not quite sure if the “good ole days” were really that good!   I know that back when I was growing up, children were defin...

  I had dinner the other night with an old friend, who shared with all of us that his grandmother had just passed away and he had to work with the rest of his family to empty out her house. And what he found, he thought was worth sharing. In her kitchen, right over her stove, he found a small jar that said on the side, “used string,” and when...

  Ever since Malcolm and I have been married, which is now 47 years, we have been supporters of various charities. Well, you can  imagine how upset we were when shortly before Christmas we heard that one of the organizations we supported had stated publicly that they are anti-gay. Now, I don’t know about you, but as opinionated as I am, I don’...

I must admit that I am finding 2014 very much like 2013! As always, I didn’t make any resolutions for the new year because I either never keep them or I forget what I resolved. So, the new year is just an opportunity for me to continue on with my life and hope that all will be well. I don’t quite understand what is actually happening in Washington...

Happy New Year!   Boy, this last year went by in a flash and I am assuming that this year will, too. As I have told you before, Malcolm and I have never gone out to “celebrate” the coming of the new year. I guess we are just not a fun couple who enjoys large crowds of people who are celebrating in a way that they will find embarrassing the nex...
