  • Driving through the fog of life

    These cool mornings and hot humid evenings have led to some foggy mornings lately. I sort of enjoy the sense of quiet and isolation the fog brings when I walk the dog in the morning. But out on the road it can be a different story.

  • SAVVY SENIOR: How to find the best reacher grabber tool

    Dear Savvy Senior,
    What kinds of reacher grabber tools can you recommend for seniors who need help picking things up off the ground. I bought a cheap one at Walmart a few months ago that doesn’t work very well for me, and would like to find one that does.

  • Kids living within good boundaries

    Although much of today’s column relates to principles taught by psychologists Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend, who captured the theme of boundaries with their book “Boundaries,” published in 1992.

  • Sports can be a great escape

    Sports can be the great American escape. It seems in recent weeks, the news from around the world has been anything from encouraging. Wars, rumors of wars, religious persecution, kidnappings, dead viruses and chaos on the borders is enough to make people turn off the world.

    You know all the jokes about people having bumper crops of summer squash? Squash shows up in people’s cars or in public spaces because there is so much that the gardener can’t even give it away. Well, that’s never really been a problem for me. I have a little bit of that problem this year and I give credit to the variety and the fact that it was plated later than usual. Others, however, have not been so blessed.
