  • I joined band in 5th grade. Our band director made the instrument assignments. I suspect this was designed to prevent a band comprised solely of flutes and trumpets. Upon reaching me the band director sized me up with an appraising eye and announced,

  • It seems like we see the typical donuts and pastries at every work meeting we attend. This can be trouble for individuals trying to maintain a healthy diet, considering a single donut or pastry could contain 300 calories or more. Next time, try serving some healthier food options. Below are some suggestions for healthier snacks for any time of day.
    ·Pass the water. Be sure to have cups on hand for a water fountain or bottled water as a beverage option. Bypass the sugar-sweetened beverages including soda and fruit juices.

  • After deep and serious thought, I think I have a solution for all the world’s major problems:
    Everybody stop.
    Just stop. Take a breath. Step back. Chill out.
    Protesters, go ahead and protest, but you don’t have to riot, so put down your bricks and rocks. Stop looting. Stop damaging people’s property. Stop shouting obscenities -- and clean up your litter on the streets.
    People need to stop their violence, beginning in the home. Stop beating your wife or your boyfriend or your kids. Stop getting drunk. Stop doing dope.
