Thank God and those who guide, support us

I wanted to take time during this Thanksgiving season to thank you for all you do. There are always a few people who do most of the work. Sometimes that happens at work, in a family, in a church or in a community.

Government should not be parents

It's that time again. November third is coming and you have to decide: Will you go stand in line and navigate the waters of the voting pool? Or will you say, "I just don't have time for this, and what difference does it make anyway? I'm not going." Or, how about this one: "I don't like the choices. I'm not even going to vote this time."

'Angels All Around'

I discovered that penning a second book was far easier than the first one, partly because of what I learned in the first process - the process of dealing with editing, publishing, marketing and such - but more so because of the themes and content.
