    I Got To Hug Santa

    I swear, every cent I pay in taxes is worth it, or, at least, any money that I send to the volunteer fire department. Every year on the Saturday night before Christmas Santa rides around town on the front of  the giant hook and ladder truck and gives out candy canes to any...

    Having Fun

     George Bernard Shaw has been known to say, “Youth is wasted on the young.” He has a point of course; young people are too immature to realize just how much fun they’re having. Those of us firmly entrenched in mid-life however understand all too well how brief, how...

    at least I used to; I've been depressed for the past four months but before that I was always the one to constantly point out all sorts of random beautiful things to everyone I loved. I remember jumping with joy over the smallest thing, being grateful for everything life had to...

    Wanna See? A Blimp Story

    Personally, I am happy on the ground, I mean with my feet firmly planted on it, but I am fascinated by blimps and hot air balloons. They are common where I live, a safe wind corridor between Philadelphia and New York City, so I get to see a lot of them. Many small airports make...
