“Say a Command” By Art Garland, Senior Scribe
First of all, I admit, I do take my cell phone to church.  I have a Blackberry and with it comes a feature where one can press a button, and it asks for a command.  Now, with that said, we set the stage… The church sanctuary is small in size with everyone knowing everyone else. My friend and I have been attending this friendly little church for about 3 weeks.  We make our way... read more

Two feet of snow, By Phyllis Mong, Senior Scribe
I plan ahead for the incoming weather. Try to get a few grocery supplies in the house, even some potato chips, cookies, ice-cream ─  you know, the comfort food that adds calories (which I don't need). But, so comforting! Just in case the power goes off and the stove and microwave are powerless, the night before the storm advisory, I fill two large thermos bottles with very hot water that I may use... read more

The Early Days, By Bob Rhoades
January 31, 2011 - My first day as a firefighter was July 2, 1967.   We’ll call it the early days.  I heard stories about the iron firemen, real smoke eaters, guys with leather skin and lungs to match.  I’m not sure how much of that was true, but I do know that breathing a lot of that into your lungs hurt a lot after the fact, like someone was sitting on your chest. A lot of us “new guys” decided... read more

A good laugh, even if you're NOT over 60! When I bought my Blackberry I thought about the 30-year business I ran with 1800 employees, all without a cell phone that plays music, takes videos, pictures and communicates with Facebook and Twitter. I signed up under duress for Twitter and Facebook, so my seven kids, their spouses, 13 grandkids and 2 great grand kids could communicate with me in the modern way. I figured I could handle something as simple as Twitter with only... read more
And then it is Winter You know, time has a way of moving quickly and catching you unaware of the passing years. 

It seems just yesterday that I was young, just married and embarking on my new life with my mate. And yet in a way, it seems like eons ago, and I wonder where all the years went.

Strictly American, By Ross Princiotto - Apple Pie: It is said that nothing is more American as Apple Pie. Where did the phrase start? Perhaps it started in our New England Colonies. There apples are found at any meal. Yes, apple pie with a slice of cheese is so good, of course, for breakfast. All kinds of pies were made with tarts or fritters. Check this saying out. “An apple pie without the cheese is a kiss without the squeeze”... read more
