  • When I was a young man on Maryland’s eastern shore, the best job opportunity was working for Dupont, which was tough to get on with and to work for. They employed efficiency managers to track the time it took to complete a task and then used that to gauge (judge) your performance, or failure.  
    We live in a culture where judging is the norm, e.g. sports, pageants, school awards, promotions, etc.

  •  In my family we have two new babies: Lily Aaron and Zachary Jack.
    Lily is my niece Jennifer’s third daughter and Zach is my nephew Shane’s third son. Both babies were born just a few weeks apart, Lily in July and Zachary in August. My sister now has six grandchildren.
    If Lily had been a boy she would be Jack Aaron.
    Jack is my dad’s name. Aaron is Lily’s dad Marc’s middle name.
    Got all that?

  • Just this morning my friend Tara and I were wondering if it’s possible to be addicted to drama.
    She calls it being on the crazy train. She said when the crazy train comes around and she hitches a ride on it she’s firing on all cylinders, she’s in high gear and overdrive, not to mention mixing metaphors.
    She feels alive, she says, yet at the same time she hates it with all her might.

  • Back in the day, “Back to School” came after Labor Day week-end. Summer went on and on. Of course, since our school year started so late, we had neither fall nor spring breaks at our school. Rest from classroom activities came with Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter holidays; teachers’ in-service days; and, the occasional snow day.
    The first weeks of school held a certain excitement. Everything seemed new – new classes, new challenges, new teachers and friends. Some classes held our interest ... others, not so much. That’s how life works.

  • My neighboring vendor at the Belknap Farmers’ Market, Janet Haggerty, shared some little cherry tomatoes with me last week that came from a stray seedling. The little tomatoes where a dull yellow and about the size of a gooseberry.  They were fantastic.
    I remember meeting a woman at the State Fair years ago that brought in a similar bag of tiny tomatoes. She said the plants were popping up here and there in the garden, not like anything she had ever planted.
