Is it Christmas already? Just before Halloween, the Christmas displays began appearing in stores. Maybe that’s good marketing, but it makes me sad. I’m even writing this a month before Christmas, and you have plenty of time to shop for Uncle FlorianREAD MORE
In this space last May, we mentioned 26 potential candidates for the Republican nominee, one of whom will in all likelihood face Barack Obama in the Presidential election this fall. Of those named, all 26 are still alive and perhaps interested in the nomination, which may not be determined before the party’s Tampa convention in August.READ MORE
Fire pit ashes placed in a garage caused a fatal house fire. This scenario has and will play out, over and over again.
