Make it Cool

Make it Cool

Being cool, they say, is hard. Staying cool is even harder. So how do you get to be cool? If you want to go from square to cool…you will need to do more than change your shape and lower your temperature. That ain’t cool. Cool is actually a strange word to express a whole menagerie […]

Tree Hugger

Tree Hugger

We live in two worlds. In some ways they are at war with each other…and at times the kinder, gentler of them seems to be losing. A critic of our present day recently said, “Imagine if trees gave off Wi-Fi signals, we would be planting so many trees that we’d probably save the planet too. […]

Gone fishin’

Fishing has been a popular pastime since antiquity. It has also given rise to much great philosophy, for example, this: Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach him how to fish and he will sit in a boat and drink beer all day. But then there are the serious […]

Cinderella or Super Hero?

Cinderella or Super Hero?

That’s the big thing about March Madness basketball. There’s always a place at the Big Dance for Cinderella to win it all, though usually the Super Hero title goes to somebody else.

Don’t Look Now…

Don’t Look Now…

This one’s for women only. Men, don’t peek! OK, go ahead. I know you can’t help it, anyway. And besides, this question is really for everybody. How come the Women’s Movement – the one that historians say might have begun as long ago as 1848 in the United States – the one that was supposed […]
