Simple changes make a huge impact

in

If we’re doing it right, throughout our lives we continue to learn, grow and improve.
With that process, a lot can change in a short time.
Five years ago, I couldn’t have told you what gluten was without looking it up on Google. Now, the definition is etched in my memory. Gluten is a protein found in wheat, barley and rye.
Five years ago, I was trying to eat healthy. That included whole wheat breads, pasta, etc. That’s great. If you’re trying to eat healthy, utilizing the whole wheat/whole grain versions of things is one of the things any dietitian or health expert will tell you.

I don’t believe in our land that we have yet heard the end of this controversy, but for the moment, let us pray. I did not say “may” we pray.

Collaboration is key to student success

Cox-Boniol,  Cathi.jpg

I recently revisited the entire “From Elvis in Memphis” album from start to finish. A perpetual presence on the “best of” album lists throughout the industry, this landmark 1969 recording saw Elvis return to his Memphis roots for the first time since recording at Sun Studio 14 years earlier. And the result is a marvel.

Cyberstalking isn’t normal

in

Cyberstalking by all accounts is a term that is considered abnormal in a civilized world. I have my own definition of cyberstalking and consider myself a victim. Cyberstalking is when a known individual such as a hacker uses his or her computer to spy on a target.
Internet security is weak since the majority of people have high-speed Internet capability and smartphones. Hackers can encrypt a password and spy on a user’s web browsing habits. It would be like opening personal mail such as a utility bill or personal letter.

Elected officials aren’t leaders

in

It saddens and maddens me that too few of our elected officials are real leaders. I mean the kind of leader who puts his/herself aside for the betterment of the whole, has moral character and lives by traditional principles.  Leadership means having vision, discipline and common sense. Leaders mean what they say and say what they mean. Leaders believe in freedom, justice and truth.  A true leader communicates well and offers solutions to problems. Leaders are self reliant, not self serving.  They do not lie or redefine terms to confuse people.  Too many of our leaders do not possess these trai

Thankful for automotive service

in

After listening to the “horror” stories of some friends and family about their service department experiences at their local car dealership, (a different dealership than I have used), I feel the need to express my  admiration and appreciation to my dealership service department. 
I purchased a vehicle from Courtesy Automotive and was amazed at the quick service I received while it was under warranty. 
So, when the warranty ran out I went back to this dealership and told them I wanted another car, just like the one I was driving.

Rocking out with the King, a Grammy nominee

Irby, Marna.jpg

This has been yet another week with things buzzing as usual.
One of the things I enjoyed was the Elvis Presley impersonator who came to perform for us. He was really good and I believe he even outdid Elvis swiveling his hips. Plus — was kissing all the little old ladies. When he got to me, I extended my hand. I wasn’t as happy with my Coke as some of them were.
They have happy hour here every Friday evening and bring in entertainment. I never go, since I’m not interested in drinking and don’t usually know who the artist is for the evening, but I had to go see Elvis.
