  • Somebody suggested that I needed to do an off the wall column today. I’m not sure exactly what that means, but it got me to thinking about the clichés and expressions we hear all the time. For example, “off the wall,” or “think outside the box.”

  • This morning, I was thinking about how hard it was for me to control my tongue. Here are some of the troubles I have: many times I get started talking and don’t know when to stop. Many times I blurt in when someone else is talking and many times I have said something that did not come out the way I meant it to be, but if I tried to correct it it only got worse. This is just a few ways that I have mentioned losing control of my tongue and I am sure there are many more. I hope everyone does not have the same trouble controlling their tongue.

  • One of the oldest and best of the truly American dishes enjoyed all across our country is corn pudding — sweet, just-ripe summer corn freshly cut from its cob, delicately seasoned and bound in a rich custard. It’s so popular that many Americans may be better acquainted with its out of season version made with canned cream-style corn. But while that’s good, it simply can’t compare with one made from fresh-from-the-field corn so naturally sweet that some old cookbooks suggested serving it with wine sauce as a dessert.
