It’s the week all students dream about - graduation week. The Class of 2013 has a world of opportunities ahead of them but the job environment might not be as good as they would like. I hope they will be diligent in their search for jobs - unless they continue their education. Sometimes that is [...]
This past Thursday I was honored by the Beebe Chamber of Commerce as their Citizen of the Year. I really appreciate that honor and had a great time at the banquet listening to Craig O’Neal and seeing the other honorees - Mayor Mike Robertson, Lifetime Achievement Award winner and Educator of the Year Mackye Sandlin.

Can you believe this weather? I know it does no good to talk (gripe) about it - but really!!!!! One day it’s 80-degrees, the night we have a freeze warning. How are we going to ever get our gardens to grow properly? We may not have tomatoes until September - and we usually have fresh [...]
Wow! What a news week we all endured. From the Boston Marathon bombings to the search for the suspects, to the showdown and death on one and then the hunt and capture of the remaining suspect. I watched it all on tv and just couldn’t not watch it - even though most of the time [...]

A cartoonist was found dead in his home. Details are sketchy.
I used to be a banker, but then I lost interest.
The other day I saw a show on PBS about your brain. Now, I should be able to tell you all the info about it like title, subject matter, etc. - but obviously - my brain does not work exactly as I would like. Sure, I could look it up - as I DVR’ed it. [...]
You know how when you get on the internet, they have different things of interest for you to click on? Well, today (Tues.) they had this list of things to keep away from your dogs and cats. I thought it was a good thing to pass along - so here it is.
Don’t let your dogs [...]
OK- one week is not long enough to have adjusted to Daylight Saving time. I’m still late - going to sleep and getting up. Anyway, thinking about actually using an alarm clock. Usually my cats, dogs, or daylight wake me up. We’ll see.
