Have a Safe Halloween

Do you believe there is evil in the world? I sure do. Just look at the news. People do horrific things to other people, and to animals. While people who seek to harm others will do so on their schedule, Halloween certainly provides an opportunity for them. Halloween used to be fun and safe. We…

Fireworks Tips for Veterans with PTSD

I am seeing a lot of posts about “being aware of veterans around you during the 4th of July.”  I agree that if you are aware of a veteran with PTSD in your vicinity, you should NOT aggravate them by shooting off illegal fireworks.  Well, you shouldn’t be using illegal fireworks anyway!

Am I being Cautious or Paranoid?

I love being outside and doing yard work.  I have planted (with help from my dad) most of the landscaping at most of the houses we’ve lived in.  I live to be outside – on a warm sunny day. Some of you have heard that I stepped in two hornet’s nests in two weeks, and…
