I was happy to see American Idol’s new season which started a couple of weeks ago. I had actually forgotten that it was time for the new season to start until it was the night it started -  but that was a happy surprise. I have watched The Voice but I still like American Idol [...]

It’s been a busy place at the state Capitol this week. Monday our state senator Jonathan Dismang was sworn in as the senate President Pro Tempore and our Rep. Jeremy Gillam was sworn in as Speaker of the House. I believe this is the first time we have had both those positions filled by White [...]

Well, the kids are back in school and we can all get back into our regular routine now that the holidays are over. I love the holidays but am really happy to get back to normal schedules.
I got several electronic type things for Christmas and I’m trying to get used to using them. Some I [...]

Here we are at the New Year. Usually I have my New Year’s resolutions ready - but I actually started them the 1st of December. It seems easier then - even though it was diet and exercise related. Try starting your resolutions before New Year’s Day - it might help.
But here are my wishes for [...]

It’s Christmas week and it has come in leaps and bounds. If you’re like me, and I hope you are not, you are not ready for this Thursday - Christmas!  Maybe a miracle will happen and Tuesday and Wednesday will be filled with me getting things ready. We shall see what happens. But I vow [...]

Wow!  This weather is crazy!  70+ degrees today and then windy and colder tonight - much colder. Very strange.
The Christmas Lighting event Saturday night was lots of fun. Daniel Park was lit up, Santa was there, carolers were there and the Christmas train was there. Everyone had lots of fun!  Oh, yes, and the weather [...]

Christmas is getting closer.  The annual Beebe Chamber of Commerce Lighted Christmas Parade was held last Saturday night. I hadn’t planned on riding in the parade but last-minute opportunity arose and I rode with Mike, Carol and Trinity Robertson in a teeny tiny Suzuiki Samari.

I hope you had a great Thanksgiving!  We had a good amount of people who attended our Thanksgiving luncheon at Beebe First United Methodist Church. Many people got take-out food and that was also great.  For all those who prepared the food, helped serve, deliver, clean-up, etc. - a big Thank You!!!! A special thank [...]

Thanksgiving - it’s one of my favorite holidays. It’s not because I like turkey so much (maybe the dressing) but it’s because giving thanks for the blessings we have is so basic to experiencing a good life. Without gratitude - we are left empty and looking for more. We’ll never have as much as the [...]

A friend of mine in New Jersey, emailed this to me this week. I loved it so much I wanted to share it with you.
Complete or finished?
No dictionary has ever been able to satisfactorily define the difference between “complete” and “finished.” However, during a recent linguistic conference, held in London, England, and attended by some [...]
