Totally “GREEN” for March!

By “Green” I am not referring to dollar signs, although there will be plenty of those around. Everything and everyone will be sporting some shade of green, even our furry friends. All of the local pubs will be “awash” in a sea of green “suds”. In Ireland some bodies of water are turned to the color green. I heard from a tourist that even the mailboxes are green! Remember the expression “Lucky Four-Leaf Clover?” Four-leaf clovers are a...

Quote – “Early bird gets the worm – Early turkey gets the table.” Despite all the construction and confusion, times marches on. Next month is Christmas and everything will be...

Goliath Arises From Historical Ashes

By Michelle Fallena Beautiful October has arrived with cooler weather and kids are back in school. The stores have their Halloween supplies ready for sale and even winter items. Soon it will be time to change the clocks ahead one hour. Tiger baseball was in full “swing” now it will “pass” to the Lion’s football. A good description of a football fan would be …… a guy who’ll yell at the quarterback for not spotting an open receiver...

The Splendor of September

By Michelle Fellnna The hot days of August seemed to linger in sizzling heat like a summer barbeque. Now it’s time to put away the grill and look forward to autumn and cooler days. September is a beautiful time of year and great for travel. The “crunch” of golden leaves as you walk along is nice except when it is time to clean the yard. Make this a family project and it can be fun. Summer has disappeared too fast. Kids are headed back...

ONE SMALL STEP FOR MAN – ONE GIANT LEAP FORWARD FOR THE DOWN TOWN “D”!

By Michelle Fallena On July 20, 1969 Neil Armstrong, Apollo 11, said, “One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” He was the first man to walk on the moon. What has evolved since then is almost unreal. On April 8,2016, Space Dragon X, was launched from Cape Canaveral Air Force station in Florida. Astronauts are now living and working on research projects in outer space. I mention this because look at all that has occurred...
