Sometimes the journey of life mimics the journey of a fast-food drive-thru—a slow, agonizing adventure and not the quick and wacky misadventure like the ads have promised.
Celebrity deaths. It shouldn't be confusing, but it has become that way when television anchors break the news to us, and I hate to say it, but it will only get even more confusinger.

With Thanksgiving over, it's time to focus on Christmas all the columns leading to the Big Day will be holiday themed. This week's column deals with the most popular holidays as dictated by the commercials reminding us those special days are just around the corner.
One of the pitfalls of parenting is when you kid gets sick, and not the kind of sick where you can lock them in their room until the pass out from doing three shots of cough syrup. No, because when vomiting is involved, it's not just a sickness, it's an adventure.
