A generation goes, and a generation comes, but the earth remains forever …What has been is what will be, and what has been done is what will be done, and there is nothing new under the sun. Is there a thing of which it is said, “See, this is new”? It has been already in the ages before us. T…

The toes on my right foot squished together in ice-cold water on Saturday as I watched the featureless sunrise of a grey October morning. Wet feet are second only to sticky fingers when it comes to mild discomforts that can drive a person insane if left unattended, and I’d forgotten to bring…

During my prime teenage years there was only one thing to do if you wanted to truly express to someone how much they meant to you. It wasn’t enough to simply let someone parade around in your Letterman jacket. Giving another your class ring did show a sign of commitment, but it really wasn’t…

Typically, October, due to Halloween’s presence in the month, is where we see a bumper crop of horror movies. It is hard to look at any streaming service or theater releases and not see the lack of diversity in the genre of movies being released. I love horror movies, I should say I love goo…

A physician friend of mine recently started writing a blog. He’s a devout follower of Jesus and both intelligent and skilled enough to teach at a medical school (He’s so smart that even the name his blog is a word most of us have never heard of. I thought he made it up, but explained to me t…

High school football returned to Wisconsin’s St. Croix Valley. Old rivalries renewed. Pep bands, cheer squads, parents and families, boosters, and concessionaires. All are ready. If visiting fans are unsure of the location of the opponent’s playing field, they just look for the distant glow …

We need not destroy the other in order to prosper. On June 16, 1858, Abraham Lincoln used a Biblical text from Matthew, Mark and Luke as he spoke to the nation in a time of division and distrust. He quoted the phrase Jesus made, that a house divided against itself cannot stand. These words w…

Many professions have observance weeks throughout the year. January 20 is National DJ Day. February 5-National Weatherperson’s Day, April 25 is the day Hairstylists are honored. October 4-10 is National Newspaper Week for 2020, so I guess it is my turn. I absolutely love my job and the conne…

One of the ways I try to become a better movie critic is by taking courses on various aspects of film, so I can be more knowledgeable about the art of film making. Just recently I have begun a new course on screenwriting. Hopefully when I am done with the course, I might have my own film to …

We are well within the depths of autumn which means camera shutters are clicking, capturing everybody in the midst of nature’s bountiful colors and beauty. Families stand together in front of sun kissed leaves and Seniors in high school pose nestled in the colored fallen leaves of Maple and …

School is so different this year. I am thankful for all of the staff who are working so very hard to keep our kids healthy and hopefully in the classroom. One piece of normalcy that I am not going to miss this year is the traditional parent/teacher conference.

So, after I watched this movie, I went onto IMDB (Internet Movie Database) because I didn’t feel that this film was really in sync with the its’ trailers. When I watched the trailer, Antebellum looked to be some type of horror movie that involved ghosts. This was definitely not a horror movi…

When I was a kid, every Sunday our family would drive to my grandparents’ farm. We drove for about an hour through the Wisconsin countryside, past seemingly endless herds of cows all living on their own picture-perfect farms. After lunch we would wander around and visit the barn, the cows in…

I’ve carried this ton of trouble,

When I first moved into my neighborhood on the east side of Baldwin it was really quiet. Well, the numerous children (a fair number of which share my last name) were loud and boisterous as to be expected, but there was absolutely no construction traffic or noise.

Of all times in my life to be developing seasonal allergies, why wouldn’t it be when every cough or sneeze has others assuming I am the next pandemic sufferer.
