Lovina shares a recipe from her new cookbook

There are 17 days left until daughter Lovina and Daniel’s wedding day. Although we are getting a lot accomplished, there is still a lot to be done. I sewed my dress, cape and apron and also daughter Verena’s for the wedding. I still have Lovina’s wedding dress to sew. It keeps getting ...

Brownies can change a life

There are times when the emails pile up, texts are unanswered and phone calls go straight to voicemail. That’s when I’m usually either drowning my sorrows eating or baking brownies. They get my full attention. It’s weird to be that specific, but there’s a reason brownies are a ...

Meet the amazing untattooed man, except for ink stains

I am an unmarked man. That is to say, I am one of three, possibly four, tattooless people left in the United States. Years ago, a kid could get sent home from school just for drawing the Batman logo on his arm with a Bic pen. (The Bic worked out OK, but Mom about scrubbed my skin off when I ...

These dreams go on when I close my eyes…

You know how sometimes a scene plays out in your dreams, something that you couldn’t possibly know when you’re awake, and then two days later, that very thing happens in real life? It just happened to me, more or less. It was astounding. The other night, after eating most of a pepperoni ...

Singular accusatory tense is no fit for me, but for we

My wife reached for the Kleenex box and came up empty. She locked eyes with me. “We sure go through a lot of tissues, don’t we?” Every married guy knows what she meant. She didn’t mean WE. She meant ME. The implication was that I, personally, must be grabbing tissues by the fistful to ...

If life is a highway, I want my senior discounts all trip long

I was on another road trip. Not the kind in a car on asphalt. I mean the unreliable road that twists through my memory banks on its way to the Land of Nostalgia. On this trip, I peeked into the “Burt’s Eye View” archives to recall what I was whining about 20 years ago. There were the ...

Do you remember these relics that were life staples?

Do you remember these stores from the ’80s and ’90s?

I recently happened upon an article titled “17 Stores That You Forgot About That No Longer Exist.” Back in the good old days, shopping meant browsing through aisles of physical stores rather than scrolling through endless online options. Let’s take a trip down memory lane and reminisce ...

They may be over, but ’80s still rock ‘n’ roll to me

As a child of the 1980s, I could hardly look away when I caught the headline “18 Awesome Things From the ’80s That We Wish Were Still Around.” Naturally, I can’t get to all of them, but I thought we could visit a few or so. Let’s get straight to it. •Classic arcade ...

Once groovy, some foods are now ‘out of sight’

As I’m prone to do, I recently went down some rabbit holes to an interesting topic for you all to enjoy. I came upon an article entitled “Bizarre Supermarket Products from the ’70s That Are No Longer Seen Today.” Bingo! Here are some of the bygone foodstuffs highlighted: • TV ...

What herbs will you plant this year?

As the signs of summer tempt my gardening mindset, I love to go out to my herb garden to find out which herbs survived the winter. A couple weeks ago, I did just this. I cleaned out my herb garden, and I was happy to see that oregano, thyme, lovage, mint and surprisingly rosemary survived. ...
