I was told by a lady the other day, when you visit Alaska a little bit of you stays there. I have to agree that is true. Bruce and I spent last week with Riley's Bus line touring Alaska from Anchorage to Fairbanks to Valdez and back to Anchorage. In that week, we saw how the Iditarod...

While Valentine's Day is past, every day is meant to love. We always think Valentine's Day is for lovers, but I found a little story written by JoAnn Merrill called "Love: A Variation on a Theme".

As I am writing this, it is yet another day of snowing, school is cancelled and our Homemaker's meeting is cancelled, as are many other events. I decided to get myself out of the doldrums, I would write about Spring. It is only a month and a half away, Yahoo! I went online and...

Remember the first snow fall and we knew we would have a white Christmas, it was really cool (meaning great)! Here is a poem by Mary Louise Allen that describes how most of us feel with the first snow fall... First Snow Snow makes whiteness...

For the Bits & Pieces column this time, I thought I would share a couple of stories from a book given to me by my daughter, Barb. The title of the book is "Love Adds a Little Chocolate" by Medard Laz. It is a book with several stories on life experiences. Many of the authors are unknown...

Once again I received an email I want to share with you readers. I'm sure some have seen it before, but for those of you who don't have a computer and don't receive email, I thought you might enjoy this. Besides it has a lesson: A mouse looked through the crack in the wall to...

I like this time of year, when the days are warm and the nights are cool. The leaves are beginning to turn and the apples are ready to eat. I went on the Minnesota Apple Growers Association website and they listed 24 varieties, six of which are a favorite of most people. Here is...

Earlier this summer, when I was in Washington D.C. with my daughter, Barb, we visited the Holocaust Museum. I believe this is a must see for every American. It is hard to imagine that so many lives could have been destroyed by one man or group of men who believed that being a Jew...

This getting older is for the birds. I hate not being able to see as well as I used to. I mean I can't ever get dressed without my glasses on. You can't see snaps, hooks and buttons without them and heaven forbid I would put something on backwards, like a shirt or slacks. I remember...

The past six months I have been doing a lot of traveling, thanks to my kids. The first was my trip to Chicago to babysit for my granddaughter, Kayla, and take in the sights of Chicago in the small area I inhabited. Then I went to California for my granddaughter Kelsey's graduation...

Recently, at a family gathering, the conversation turned to the "olden days" and about things family and friends and neighbors did. I want to share a few with you for laughs or just to say, "I remember that". In the '50s here in Minnesota, it was against the law to sell oleo margarine in...
