I know I work with some anti-maskers and I live in a community with plenty of people who think it's a hoax. Not only that but, as a music specialist, I think I'm going to have to have to move from...

It's interesting to me to know that, in some areas, school board members are appointed. I'm not sure what I think about that. In this area, I've seen a lot of cases where disgruntled former...

Who has authority over the school board?

People are extremely ignorant about this, it appears.

My community recently had a situation in which a school board member posted a racially charged comment on social media and got called out for...

Has alcohol always been a part of his problem? If so, I would say that you won't see any real change unless/until he accepts that he can't drink at all. And you can't make him do that - he'll have...

Good article, Risa. and I think it's probably quite true that depression and anxiety is part of what's going on.

Years ago (like, 25 years ago, I guess) I started seeing a stress counselor...

1. No.

2. I'm not very picky about towels. I just want a good enough quality that they'll last a while. I am a little pickier about sheets: I prefer cotton sheets and I want a decent thread...

I began thinking of myself as a worker who punches a time clock the year my pay got docked when I arrived an hour late for work because I had a flat tire on the way to work. Nobody even had to cover...

Well, in fairness, there's quite a lot to be angry about. Maybe all that's happened is that some people's lives have been slowed down enough for them to pay attention to things they were able to...

Yes, I'm sure this didn't help at all. However, where I'm at, the Diocese actually does a better job of educating teachers (and everyone else who has contact with children) about how to spot signs...

Two of my colleagues retired early this year and, for one of them at least, I know that concerns about COVID-19 played into it. She has asthma and her husband has cardiac problems so it really was a...

I rarely wear perfume. If I do, I wear Garden Botanika Heart. I wish they would bring back the Heart scented shea butter soap since I prefer soap to body wash.

Well, good luck. I have found feeders they can't actually get into, but they still find a way to tip the seed out of the feeder. I've tried hot pepper suet, and I got to enjoy the sight of a...

I agree with everything Izzy23 said and would just add proximity to Lake Michigan and Door County as something I love about Wisconsin.

I've lived in Minnesota, South Dakota and Iowa. My family is...

Weight loss definitely helps but, for me, the main component in keeping my hA1c down is exercise, even if it doesn't result in weight loss.

You might be right. In my late teens/early 20's (late 70's early 80's) I read everything I could get my hands on that was written by Vonnegut and loved all of it. Since then, I've read and enjoyed...

I do carry my checkbook with me but I rarely write checks and I don't carry a check register. I have carbon checks so I don't feel the need. I don't use my debit card very much, either. I run most...

1. I'm pretty neutral on this. I am usually the one behind the camera, though.

2. I don't know if that's ever happened to me. If it has, it didn't make much of an impression either way.
