  • For the Love of Catalogs0

    It all started with the JCPenney “big book” that would come in the fall. Next came Speigel, then Newport News, then Victoria’s Secret. The arrival of a catalog always gave me a thrill. When I was little, I used to stare at the pictures, taking in all the details of the models, clothes, and accessories,

  • What Do You Know About Football?0

    Disclaimer. These articles are submitted Friday afternoon. Life gets busy, and I will occasionally miss my extended deadline. I often leave my lovely editor hanging.

    The Bookworm Sez: “Dear Child” by Romy Hausmann0

    There’s no one else like you in the world. No one with the same tongue-print or identical ear shape. Nobody else has your memories, and every experience you’ve ever had is unique to you alone. You might favor one parent or the other, you may have a twin or a doppelganger, but in the end,

  • Create a Pet-Friendly Home This Holiday Season0

    • December 9, 2020

    This year, holiday gatherings may look different than celebrations in years past. With traditions and large gatherings up in the air, pet parents can take some comfort in knowing they can still celebrate with their pets. Before the festivities begin, however, it’s important for pet parents to ensure their homes are as pet-friendly as possible.

  • Normal?0

    Simply put, I don’t care who you voted for or if you even voted. That is your business, and the less we all fret and fume over the outcome of the election, a better frame of mind we can enjoy can be realized. But there is one thing I hope you will take some time

  • An Unbelievable Fishing Story

    An Unbelievable Fishing Story0

    The other Sunday, I wanted to go fishing. The creeks needed some water, so I headed to the mighty Susquehanna. I stopped at Wegmans with my kayak strapped above. I grabbed a quick coffee and ran into a few chums. They asked where I was going, and I simply pointed to the Market Street Bridge.

  • Making Sense out of Chaos0

    I had an epiphany recently while having coffee with a friend. We were discussing why some people were successful at work and family and others were self-destructive, and tended to fall back into negative habits. Why some were kind and others were cruel. This was a complicated topic, no doubt, and I am certainly not

  • Finding Motivation0

    Whether it is working out, washing the dishes, or just plain getting out of bed some days, all of us struggle to find motivation from time-to-time. According to Liz Huber, writer for the online business publication, “The Startup,” there are eight reasons we sometimes lack motivation. • Lack of a strong reason ‘Why.’ • An

  • Two Sides Stubborn0

    Two of summer’s ‘old wives’ tales’ proclaim ‘the corn is knee-high by the Fourth of July’ and ‘the MLB teams in first place on the nation’s birthday will be there at the end of the season.’ The corn may make it, but you can forget the other. After all too many months of haggling, MLB

  • Old Skins0

    Last week I wrote about new wine based on something Jesus said in Matthew 9:17. If you didn’t have a chance to read that article, you can dig it out of your overflowing recycling bin or you can find previous editions online at This week, I would like to continue that conversation by writing

  • Obstacles and Fuzzy Math0

    I swung by to catch up with a few retired chums. It was totally random and unannounced. We sipped coffee, talked some hoops, and inquired about direct flights to Charlotte. It was a very interesting conversation. It always is. I love hearing from my older and wiser friends. I simply missed them. One who I

  • A Holistic Approach to Aging Well0

    I’ll be honest, ever since I turned 40 (it was a while ago), I have days where I feel like my body is falling apart and I just want to stay in bed. My back aches, my knees sound like sand paper, and my hip simply does not want to bend. Couple that with weight

    The Bookworm Sez: “Where the Lost Dogs Go: A Story of Love, search, and the Power of Reunion” by Susannah Charleson0

    The panic can’t be described. Your dog is missing. How did he get out? Where did she go? Most importantly, where is he now and how can you ever hope to find him? Do you run outside, call the neighbors, call her name? That panic is horrible, so be prepared by reading “Where the Lost

  • Risen Grace: Taken By Passion, Part II0

    In the next part of William Booth’s Vision of the Lost, he focuses his attention on the people who had been rescued from the angry sea. What he sees is a strong indictment against Christians who are self-absorbed instead of being mission focused. This is hard to read because it hits too close to home

    • October 10, 2018

    Several weeks ago I experienced the ride of my life. Or, I should say “rides” of my life, as I dared myself to get up early on a Sunday and hitchhike as far as I comfortably could. Then try to return home (in one piece) within 24 hours using just my thumb. I’m sure your

  • It’s Been a Rough Summer0

    It’s no secret. I am a huge fan of Lycoming County. There is nothing but love for my gorgeous neighborhood. North Central Pennsylvania is the bomb, and it is home to many treasures.

  • A Summertime Staple0

    My son and I had a great conversation here recently. The nine-year-old was proudly telling me all about the first few days of his basketball camp. Jensen was having a blast, and he explained everything that took place in that little gym. We talked free throws, hotshot competitions, full-court dribbling, and no-look passes for an

    • June 13, 2018

    Last week I told you about an assignment I gave my creative writing students. They were to finish a hypothetical story about a shy man pursuing a young bank teller, but he suddenly finds out she is handicapped and relegated to a wheelchair. Would Walter be wonderful and look past her deficiency and make Janet
