  • When perfect isn’t enough

    A few weeks ago, I watched a movie on TV called “The Perfect Family.”
    Right away, just by the title, you know they’re not perfect.
    The main character is Eileen, the mother of the family. A devout Catholic, she attends Mass every day, and at confession she confesses every sin she can think of down to her gossipy thoughts.
    She serves communion and delivers food to the homebound. She’s careful to pray before meals and keeps a family altar in her home.

  • Tips on tipping

    The headline caught my eye — “Why are Christians such bad tippers?”
    It was a story responding to something that recently went viral on the Internet when a restaurant server was fired after posting a copy of a customer’s credit card receipt online.

  • Living an awe-full life

    The other day I listened to an interview with Alexandra Horowitz as she discussed her book, “On Looking: Eleven Walks with Expert Eyes.”
    She lives in New York City with a dog and a toddler, and frequently walks around her neighborhood, traveling the same route, passing the same buildings and businesses and trees and traffic.
    After taking the same walk many hundreds of times, she realized she never noticed where she was going. So, the next time out she decided to notice as much as she could.

  • What's in a name?

    On Nov. 24, the Jameson family named their newborn baby girl Hashtag, after Twitter’s use of the (#) symbol.
    The year before, an Egyptian man named his son Facebook, and in 2011 an Israeli couple named their baby Like.
    These babies join celebrities’ babies Spec Wildhorse Mellencamp, Moxie Crimefighter Jillette, Pilot Inspecktor Lee and Audio Science Clayton, which makes Apple Blythe Alison Martin sound almost traditional as a baby name.

  • Power of a soggy stamp

    Twenty years ago this year we had a devastating storm blow through our area that we call the No-Name Storm.
    I hadn’t thought about it in a while, but the other day a woman came into the newspaper office and mentioned it. She still lives in one of the hardest hit areas.
    When she left, I started thinking about that storm and its aftermath. For many people around here it was our area’s Hurricane Sandy or a mini Hurricane Katrina, blowing in and surprising everyone, wreaking havoc.
