Children and Christmas

 

The best thing about having children (or grandchildren) around Christmas time, is that they remind you that happiness comes from the simple joy of doing whatever they have in mind. They don't need what we adults need. When they are being creative in making gifts for their mothers and fathers, or grandparents, they just get a bunch of stuff out of Grandma's sewing room, stack it on the kitchen table, and go at it. There is no rhyme or reason (except to them) in...

Cheap PCs

 

This holiday season, computer manufactures are trying to get business back in gear by selling hyped computers with great prices.

The problem with these computers is that you sacrifice compatibility, quality and ease of use for price. Not all computers are the same, especially popular brand computers. While the top selling computer manufacturers, like Dell, Gateway and Hewlett Packard/Compaq are great, the store/home-built have come a long way too.

Dear Cousin,

 

Buttermilk clouds riffle across the wide expanse of the sky this morning, as another mild day unfolds in the hills. One of our sons complained this morning "it doesn't feel a bit like Christmas." It is true that we have had an extended fall season of warm weather, and with no snowflakes filling the air; it is hard to imagine that we are only a few days away from Christmas.

When asked to do a personal interview with my friend Bob Sievers, better known to local radio listeners as Mr. WOWO, I jumped at the chance. Bob is known as everybody's friend and has been a household name for decades. I was flattered when Bob said he would take off time from his busy schedule to let me have this special interview.

Bob started out by telling me that he had been a freshman at South Side High School in 1932. He had a paper route that started around Bowser & Oliver Streets...

One of my close friends in childhood was Ray Goodin. We grew up together in the 1920's and 30's in Louisville, Kentucky, and lived near the railroad tracks. Ray had a fascination for freight trains and was always talking about the L & N or the C & O or other freight trains. One time when Ray was 13 and I was 11, he suggested we go on a hobo trip. "Where," I asked. He said he had an aunt that lived in Scottsburg on the Tennessee border and that we could go there. He knew there was a...
