I’ll be honest; I wasn’t the most fanatical of sports fans when I was a youngster. Don’t get me wrong, my neighborhood friends and I played baseball in the street, football at the local elementary school, and basketball at any number of homes that had a hoop. But not everyone lives and breathes sports. I didn’t. That being said, even I and other non-aficionados of sports would recognize the Wide World of Sports introduction by Jim McKay, or the welcoming tones of Vin Scully. And, please don’t even tell me that if you close your eyes and think about it, you can’t hear the calculated, halting, and sometimes arguably annoying voice of Howard Cosell? Just take a moment and try it.

Dolls and Mother’s Day

by Margaret Mendel


In the last couple of years, Mother’s Day brings dolls to my mind. It’s not like I was a little girl with lots of dolls. In fact, I remember only a couple of occasions where dolls were part of my life. But as the years passed, and I transitioned from daughter to mother and now to grandmother, dolls have sweetly slipped into my life. Perhaps it’s the fictionalizing of my past as situations sometimes get fuzzy, and I suppose this is when the mind mixes and matches reality with invention. But for whatever reason, lately dolls have become one of my preoccupations.

If you dig back into your memory bank, you might be able to remember that Fred Flintstone and his friend Barney Rubble were members of the Loyal Order of Water Buffaloes, Lodge No. 26. At the very least, you can probably picture their funny, fuzzy headgear. Can you remember the title of the lodge leader? If you can recollect the hijinks portrayed by the members of that fictional organization in Bedrock, you might have a skewed understanding of what actual fraternal organizations do in the United States.

Holy Helpers

by Tom Sims



Recently, I became aware of the Fourteen Holy Helpers. I was thinking about the lesson that Fred Rogers would teach children about how to cope with profound crisis. He said to look for the helpers because there were always helpers. Sometimes they we teachers, sometimes police officers or doctors and nurses. Sometimes they were neighbors, but there were always going to be helpers and the helpers would help.

Social distancing. It’s a term most of us had never heard of prior to a few weeks ago. I’m betting the Oxford English Dictionary will name it the Word of the Year for 2020, even if, technically, it’s two words.

“Help! Help! Someone please.” I heard the screaming right outside my motel room. I had been napping when I heard the woman scream. I jumped up and ran to the door. Flinging it open, I saw the woman in the next door unit running back and forth. In her arms she held a little girl, about a year old.

As your loved one gets older, it’s time to start thinking about how they’ll be cared for. As much as you might like to do it yourself, it’s not realistic when you have a full-time job and family to look after yourself. If the idea of sending your older loved one to a retirement home doesn’t sit well with you, you’re not alone.

Holidays are the perfect opportunity to spend time with your friends and family. You have a moment to relax and have fun, catch up and reminisce. That said, some people think enjoying yourself is inseparable from drinking.

It is considered that the more money you have, the better your mental health is. It’s because when you have some extra funds on your deposit, you can afford better healthcare, thus increasing your general condition. What’s more, is there is a direct connection between the money at your disposal and mental health issues. So money and mental health usually go hand by hand.
