    One may think that an author’s delight might be the completion of a new story. You would be correct. Or, you might think that the author’s delight is returning from a book-signing event with a significant profit. Again you would be right. And it’s always …

  • Somethin’ Good

    Sorry, not a recipe. Or maybe it is. I rarely volunteer for things going on in my community. Good things people are doing for others. I’ve served on a few boards and visited Hospice patients over the years of my retirement but I never feel …

  • RANDOM THOUGHTS

    I left Hibbing early, and in the snow, last Thursday morning. It was treacherous up to Highway 53 and not much better to Duluth. From Superior and through Wisconsin to Eau Claire it had one clear lane but when I got to I-90 it was …
