  • The monk and the tiger...a lesson for us all

    Mindfulness is something far too many of us neglect to practice.
    I personally see my neglect of practice manifest itself in a number of undesirable ways. My blood is quick to boil when a slow-moving vehicle pulls out in front of me, regardless of whether or not I’m in a hurry.
    I get far too angry over situations that are out of my control such as an election, or some idiot talking trash on an online game. Sometimes I lash out at friends or loved ones over situations that aren’t really worth all the fuss. I take things too personally.

  • Viewpoint

    Americans are a fickle bunch.
    It doesn’t take long for the novelty of something new and exciting to wear off and become mundane and uninteresting.
    Unfortunately, I get the impression that the Rotary Club-sponsored Fabulous Fourth might be falling into that latter category.
    For those of you who don’t remember, the Fabulous Fourth celebration that we have enjoyed locally, is a relatively new phenomena.

  • Bumper crop of squash not a sure thing

    You know all the jokes about people having bumper crops of summer squash? Squash shows up in people’s cars or in public spaces because there is so much that the gardener can’t even give it away.
    I have a little bit of that problem this year and I give credit to the variety and the fact that it was plated later than usual. I also planted loads of it.
    Some, folks, however, may not be so blessed with a bumper crop.
    Some gardeners are being thwarted by squash vine borer, squash bugs and powdery mildew.
