As an old great-grandfather-wannabe, I was recently reflecting on some first-child experiences.
Men are ill prepared for the birth of their children, especially the first one. As a result, these new fathers can offer some pretty hilarious sidebars to the birth, which is a tremendous physical marathon for mothers and not a dang bit funny.…
Once again, Facebook has managed to shrink the world – just a little.
While reading a former schoolmate’s recent Facebook post, I noticed a name on the discussion thread I didn’t recognize.
Her first name was Vicki.

One of the propositions on Tuesday’s ballot eliminated from the City Charter the requirement that voting districts be implemented when the city reaches a population of 15,000.
