    An Empty House In the Neighborhood

    Times are hard right now. This fact was brought home to me with an unexpected shock, as I went walking though our safe and happy little country neighborhood, in the mountains. Our neighbors are 'just there'. We take them for granted as if they are part of the backdrop of our...
