  • Where in the Constitution of the United States does it give the government control of public toilets?

    When did we give up the rights of 98 percent of the population of this country to protect the preferences of the 2 percent of the population that claim to be homosexual or trans-gender?

    Whatever happened to common sense, respect for others, and common human decency?

    I sometimes feel that I have lived to be too old. I have seen changes take place in our country that I would have never thought possible only a few years ago.

  • The warm weather is finally here.

    Any day now there will be fresh produce on at the local farmer’s market on U.S. 127 and the one in Frankfort. Gone are the Christmas cookies, and sadly the Girl Scout cookies I hid in the back of my freezer, devoured.

    This is the time of year I look forward to working in my kitchen; it’s a new beginning, a fresh start, eat healthier, walk more, get in the garden, drink more water.
