Sins of omission

WASHINGTON -- Among the many rules I grew up with, two stand out. The first was never call someone a liar, which was considered the worst possible character indictment one could issue. The accuser had best be prepared to fight or be fleet of foot.

Stress, love, patience and ‘sucking in’

This weekend, I went with my dear friend, Jody, and a few of her family members and one other friend to make a very important purchase for her. Yes, I'm talking about wedding dress shopping.

Small town life

Around the corner, out in the country where we live, is a hardware store owned by a guy I have known since the day I was born. Our bassinets were next to each other in the hospital nursery.

Often a researcher will experience an "Ah Ha" moment when he discovers and understands a topic totally unrelated to the topic being researched. Some also describe this as a serendipitous moment. Harvey S. Teal chronicles such a moment in this story.

They will know...

Several days ago, the all too familiar sound of children fighting came from the other room in my house, a predictable occurrence for most parents.

I could hear it in her voice and she had a no-nonsense look on her face when she said it.
