  • '42'

    Watching the movie “42” a few nights ago was good for my soul and reminded me of how much we need more movies or TV shows that inspire us with heroic deeds performed by true and deserving heroes.
    Most baseball fans, no matter how old, will recognize 42 as Jackie Robinson’s number when he played with the major league Brooklyn Dodgers baseball team.
    It is the only number that has been permanently retired by all major league baseball teams.

  • Civil rights hero’s legacy continues to inspire

    In the wake of the horrific murderous attacks in Paris, and in recognition that terrorism in all its forms must be condemned, it’s important to honor leaders who use non-violent means to reach needed

Not that I wasn't tempted to go to garden shops and bring home a truck filled with tender flowers just waiting for me to put in the ground. Just like babies, they look so cute when they're little.

  • Contemplations
