Just clownin' around

People who know me come in through our attached garage, rap hard on the door and wait for me to yell, "C'mon in!" Recently the person who came in was a clown. He lives on Big Fish Lake, near Ortonville....more >>

Leaky tanks, politics and unnatural eggs

Leaky tanks. I've mentioned before that I'm a news junky. I read and hear lots of messages from Washington and Lansing. I sit a little straighter when one of our boys and girls say something that had crossed my mind from time to time....more >>

A nation founded by geniuses, run by idiots?

A long time ago, in my early newspapering days, I took an interest in Senator Everett Dirksen of Illinois. He was minority leader of the US Senate. His low voice and slow delivery speeches were like magnets to me....more >>

A box of cereal doesn't need a sprig of parsley

My daddy died at 93: 94 if he'd sanitized

'I don't believe I need to buy Purell to sanitize my hands . . .'

This is how it works, in too many places

Obama is not a strong supporter of the United States military

Thinking about generations, feeding the animals & more

Now that the pro football season is all but over, you can look for changes for the Washington Redskins. In keeping with the movement to not offend anyone, I expect management will drop "Washington" from the team name....more >>

The pessimist, the optimist and a Kalohn

I think it was the mid-70's when I first learned there was a Pete Kalohn. He cooked and talked in his father's restaurant in Lake Orion, Gus' Steak House until he opened his own Restaurant, Pete's Roadhaus in Lake Orion....more >>
