Keystone Cop Car Chase

Slow Speed We watched one of the most bizarre police pursuits here the night before last. Don't these people get it? They always (or almost always) get caught. The "chase" went on for almost two hours at speeds ranging from about 6 mph all the way up to 16 mph. At one point a citizen popped out of... Sign in to see full entry.

"Mmmm, Dog Meat!"

Lunch with Little RP My dad had an affinity for almost all things food. Little RP, on the other hand, did not seem to inherit that complete gene set. Sure, we both didn't care for horseradish, we both enjoyed our breads a little too much, and we both put butter on our biscotti, but lunch choices... Sign in to see full entry.

Big Ears

When the Grown-ups "Talked..." "We're Talking." Capital T. That's what I'd hear when I'd interrupt the adults too often at family gatherings. The grownups in my family would all get so engrossed in their conversations that sometimes they forgot kids were in the room. Usually though, they were very... Sign in to see full entry.

Do You Go with Your Gut

Go With Your Gut, or Not? I believe in this. It's something my mother taught us, which I then taught to my girls. But then... And just when you think it's safe to trust your gut, Psychology Today has this to say; more than you propbably ever wanted to know:... Sign in to see full entry.

"Stop That Girl!"

"What's in that Bag?" Long, long ago, in a faraway place, when one could board airplanes by arriving just before departure, and flying was a fun experience, where they gave you adult beverages to sip for no reason at all, I used to hop the Red Eye quite often for a quick flight to go visit...

In Memoriam

Lifeguard We'd just moved to a new house in a new area when I was in high school. It gets scalding hot in parts of So Cal, and at any time of the year for that matter, so it was great that there was a community pool just for the residents of our little tract. After school my sis and I would often go... Sign in to see full entry.

He Didn't Want to Go to War...But He Did!

BUT FIRST, A MESSAGE TO ALL THOSE WHO SERVED, IN WHATEVER CAPACITY; YOU'RE ALL HEROES! THANK YOU! "I Don't Wish to Serve." Yet he did, and became a U.S. hero. Sometimes ya gotta do whatcha gotta do, and Sgt. Alvin York, USA hero, did just that. He was one of the most decorated soldiers of WW I.... Sign in to see full entry.

Mama's Magic

"How'd She Do That?" My cousin X and I once had a conversation - and a laugh, about how it was that our mothers were able to make lunch of sandwiches on Wonder Bread for three children, using only one tiny can of tuna. Maybe they were skimpy sandwiches, but as I recall, they seemed just right. I... Sign in to see full entry.

Who the Heck was Ettore Boiardi?

I know you've heard of him... He was an Italian immigrant who settled in Ohio, became a chef, and later owned a successful Italian restaurant. His food was so popular that he began selling it outside the restaurant to people who wanted his sauces and pastas. He later purchased a large plant to keep... Sign in to see full entry.
