Lunchtime language: Same words, different menus

Learn, young grasshoppers, from the wisdom of an old widower: The reason communication can be so difficult in marriage is that while we use the same words, we speak different languages. I learned this many decades ago when I had the morning off, didn’t feel like cooking and had no money. I ...

Make a note of that

My life is a series of lists. I used to remember things. Now I write lists. My pants and shirt pockets are stuffed with assorted scraps of paper-bearing lists — none of them the ones that I need at the time. Magnets hold several lists on the refrigerator, including the shopping list. But I ...

The Pledge of Allegiance teaches patriotism

What’s the long-lasting obsession with soap operas?

As I was watching “General Hospital” the other day, I had to wonder why soap operas have such a stronghold on the American public – and why they have for so long. According to an article titled “What has kept fans watching ‘the soaps’ for so many decades?” by Lynn Zubernis, ...

Totally bodacious things we did in the ’80s

I came across an article the other day that caught the eye of this 1980s kid. It read: “Things Kids Did Back in the ’80s That Would Shock Kids Today.” Off the top of my head and before even reading a single word, I could rattle off a few, including: dialing a phone and walking to and ...
