Tyrades! Consumers, Do We Really Need All Those Choices?

Dear pandemic-battered readers, as you try adapting to the New Normal, just hope no diehards are waiting to confuse you with a plethora of ADDITIONAL configurations. It’s best just to suck it up and accept the NEW Normal rather than navigating a...

The First Amendment, Black liberation and you

I want to wish everyone a very happy and safe July 4th. Our country needs the prayers of all who believe in our nation and in God. Our nation is facing some trying times, but it has in the past and survived. We can do it again by electing leaders...

Tyrades! Where Does Your State Rank on The Patriotism Scale?

This is the beginning of summer and the temperatures show that to be true. The days have been in the upper eighties and low nineties and nights have dipped into the fifties a few times and low sixties other nights. The waterways and creeks have been...

Tyrades! Do You Treasure Your Prom Memories?

My wife and I experienced some vicarious living when our son Gideon (finishing up his junior year of high school) attended the senior prom. (Yes, VICARIOUS living. It’s not like we got him out of the house, jumped with glee and yelled, “Date...

This has been another week of summer weather with the nights being in the upper fifties and days into the eighties and low nineties. The humidity for the most part has been low, making for great days and a beautiful time to see the sights of the...

Tyrades! Can We Discontinue the "World's Greatest Dad" Scam?

Speaking as a father (“What -- am I made of money? Go ask your mother! When you have your own roof, you can make your own rules! No, my abs aren’t flabby, they’re just meditating…”) No, this could go on forever. Start over. Speaking as a...

It was a wonderful week for farmers who were working in hay. May could have been a little cooler, but it was dry and that is what it takes to get hay cut and ready to put in the barn or storage area. There were many who were doing just that. I know...

Tyrades! Have Nature's Screechers Ever Invaded Your Home?

A man’s home is his castle – but sometimes the crocodile in the moat decides he wants to try out the bathtub instead. At my day job working in Inventory Control, one guiding principle is “a place for everything and everything in its place....

Still summer-like temperatures in the daytime but nights have been in the fifties which seems to make beautiful mornings with the fog laying in the bottoms and over the waterways. Then the sun breaks through and washes it all away to reveal the...

It is beginning to be more like summer have been. Temperatures in the upper seventies and eighties in the day and staying in the sixties at night. Of course, this brings many of the young and young-at-heart to the creeks for a dip, especially after...

Tyrades!

One of the most awkward, self-conscious incidents in my life occurred when I was shopping with a group, and one of my companions blithely continued browsing long after the store doors were locked. I have done assembly-line work, junkyard work and...

The temperatures have been more like summertime and it really feels good. Of course, when it gets really hot, we will be saying it is too hot. It is just human nature to not be satisfied with what we have at least for the most part. If the rain...

Tyrades!

One of my biggest pet peeves: people who can’t hold up their end of a conversation. Oh, I’m not saying that every single human being is obligated to bring jaw-dropping factoids, whimsical quips and provocative perspectives to every mundane conver...

We have been thrown back into winter with temperatures in the thirties around the area and frost to many places, but maybe it will soon be warmer day and night at least a little, not ready for the eighties and nineties but fifties at night and upper...

 

Tyrades!

Murder hornets. (Not to be confused with their close relatives: accessory-to-murder hornets, involuntary-manslaughter hornets, justifiable-homicide hornets and turning-state’s-evidence hornets.) Killer hornets. Asian giant hornets. Or the more...

I don’t know what weather the last few days has been unless it is blackberry, but it has been cold at night - even in the low thirties and not above the mid-fifties some days. I, for one, am ready for spring and the temperatures to stay above forty...

 

Hohenwald's Connection to the Gilded Age:
