Column: Recalling childish beliefs and a supportive father
Posted: June 27, 2014 - 6:49 pm

I am writing this just before Father’s Day, and, as is usually the case at this time of year, which also happens to be near my father’s birth date, I spend a great deal of time reminiscing about him.

Column: Memories in the making for young ­— and the not-so-young
Posted: June 27, 2014 - 6:52 pm

My egg carton had a message that said, “To prevent bacterial illness, be sure when you cook eggs that yolk is firm.” My eggs of choice are hard boiled (wouldn’t you know?), but what about poached or soft-boiled or over easy? Wherever we turn these days, there seems to be a red flag about food. A little knowledge is a dangerous thing.

Updated: July 03, 2014 - 6:55 pm

Monday, June 16 passed just like any other day, starting with the morning coffee, a little stretching of the achy muscles and outside, an overcast sky. That’s right, the first day of summer vacation began just as it has so many times before: “mostly cloudy with a chance of showers and a high of 58 degrees.”

Column: Prom builders recalled, modern slang terms confusing
Posted: June 14, 2014 - 9:28 pm

Who thought up the expression “going viral” and what exactly does it mean? It’s been overworked, as all clichés are, and I, for one, am tired of it. I suppose it could mean spreading like a disease.
