    In the past couple of months, there have been serious public disturbances resulting in riots and numerous acts of public violence throughout the United States.

    While I want this article to focus on victory in the long view, to do so, we need to understand the challenges we face when focusing too much on the short view. For us, right now, the short view is a mess. Well, frankly, it’s always a mess. If you’re someone who sincerely believes in

    The officer at the bank said “yes.” And there you were: the proud owner of something big, something you’d wanted your entire life. That’s thrilling, on one hand, and scary on the other: you’ve achieved your dream, but you’ll be contributing toward that loan for many years. And as in the new novel “One Year

    There’s only one full month of summer left and, while time seems to be standing still, chances are your nails may be in need of some maintenance.

    Before I get started this week, let’s all stand to honor America with the playing of our National Anthem. If you have a problem with this, please don’t read any further.

  • Revisiting Macarons0

    I love macarons. Next to red velvet cake, they are probably my favorite dessert. I don’t have a huge sweet tooth, but I LOVE macarons. Now, if you haven’t attempted to make these, you should know, they are not easy. So much can go wrong so easily, and it can sometimes be hard to pinpoint

  • Pouring Out Grace in the Lose-Lose0

    For the past 22 weeks, everyone has been struggling to navigate the difficulties of the pandemic shutdown.

  • County Hall Corner: The Court is Now in Session0

    Having lived in the former Soviet Union for sixteen years provides me with an appreciation for many of the institutions we have in our country.
