The question is: Will war ever end?
Will there ever be an end to war? In my lifetime, I can only justify one war, World War II. Having served in the U.S. Army then is not my reason for saying that. Jews were being murdered, and Hitler had dictatorially brought Germany into being a very serious military threat....

Money, money, money came up at morning coffee the other day. None of us has much, but that doesn’t stop us talking. I’ll bet it has a few times with you and your friends. We had read about someone that recently made an exorbitant purchase and wondered if they are one of the wealthy...

Grow old with me to see the best is yet to be
I think that title has the benefit of sounding positive; it certainly gives off positive vibes just to say it. It’s a good way to view life, isn’t it? The good life lies ahead. As a soon to be 91-year-old, I think we all need to see the bright side of life, but life doesn’t...
