Sweatshirt and Sneaker Weather

By G. E. Shuman For all my usual complaining about spending the past 62 winters here in the frozen north, at this time of year I usually have to play the hypocrite.

Reiss’s Pieces

By Judy Reiss Since I was a little girl and even a young woman, things have changed! And I try to imagine how the world has changed for every generation.

Well, although I hate to actually tell you how wrong that scenario is, I do want to share with you the last five days of my life. And please note, that every single word is true! Believe it or not.
