WHAT TO DO?

Mass shootings used to be a rare and shocking event. Then it got to be every couple of months. Now it happens every day, sometimes more than once. This routine breaking news is breaking us. It's not a show that should go into re-runs. First responders can only do so much: CSI and hot pursuit just... Sign in to see full entry.

HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!

I hope your day is full of yummy food, chilled delicious drinks, maybe a double scoop of ice cream with chocolate syrup, whipped cream and a cherry on top. It's a day for family get-togethers, or if that isn't possible, a phone call "mobile" hug... It's a day for saying thank you to the heroes and... Sign in to see full entry.

The Pollyanna was a typical diner of the 1940s. I worked there the summer between my sophomore and junior years in high school. Because I had not yet turned sixteen we... Sign in to see full entry.

CLEARING OUT ONE THING EACH DAY: PROGRESS CONTINUES

I recycled a 3' artificial Christmas tree that's been hiding under a plastic bag in the junk room for a couple years now. It's out the door and maybe on its way to cheer up someone else's holiday. And once I could step right up to the cabinet that the tree had blocked I found a box with several... Sign in to see full entry.

HOW TO MAKE A BANANA SPLIT

This was how we made them at the Polyanna Cafe in 1952. This was just about the same time the Sweden Freeze company began making soft ice cream machines, but most diners still preferred the old fashioned sundaes made from regular ice cream. The Polyanna Banana Split Slice a peeled banana in half... Sign in to see full entry.
