  • If you were to have an experience like George Bailey in the 1946 Christmas movie “It’s a Wonderful Life,” what would you discover to be the real meaning and purpose of your life on planet Earth?

    Living a life of purpose reflects who you are deep inside, your beliefs, values and passion for living. It is about following your heart and doing what you love to do with passion and purpose.

  • It’s been a while since my neighbor lady has wreaked havoc on my life.

    However, this past week she made up for lost time.

    To bring you up to speed on who my neighbor lady is: She’s my evil twin, my alter ego, an overbearing, intrusive buttinsky mother who has trouble remembering that once the umbilical cord is cut moments after birth, it should not and cannot ever be reattached and it is futile and foolish to even try – although she’s been trying for more than 40 years.

  • When I watch movies, I enjoy the action/adventure genre. One of my favorites involves a tsunami. Apparently, it is possible for watercraft to survive the crushing force of the wave, if the boat can make it over before it crests. The movie showed several small boats racing toward the monster to scale its surface. Sure enough, our dauntless heroes rocketed ever upward as the smaller boats discovered that gravity is a harsh mistress. Falling back into the trough of the wave, they were soon pulverized when it crested.

    Global activities for the recycling of used materials to reduce waste and transform it into useful products have accelerated the past several decades. This is part of a global effort to lessen the human footprint on our planet.

  • With the winter we have had so far, chances are you’ve seen at least one or two high heating bills. While home heating costs can put a strain on your wallet during the winter, you can do certain things to help save money while still keeping your home warm.

    Sunlight, even in the winter, is a great way to add natural, free warmth to your home. Open your blinds and curtains during the day, particularly on south-facing walls as they get the most exposure to the sun. As the sun sets, close them to help trap in the warmth.

  • Standby generators provide emergency electrical power during disruptions caused by winter storms and other disasters. However, you need to take some special precautions to ensure safe, efficient operation of these generators.

    Purchase a generator that will supply more than what you need, so you don’t blow a fuse or damage the equipment you plan on attaching to the generator. You’ll find power information on the labels of appliances, lighting and other equipment. For example, the wattage on a light bulb indicates the amount of power it needs.
