Hey Y’all | I Knew We’d Won!

My Daddy was in the Army and served in the European Theater. Snell’s Daddy was in the Pacific Theater. I said that one day in a conversation and a young woman asked me what kind of entertainment field they were in. I do not believe some of our educators are teaching WWII adequately. Either that, or the kids need to put up their dang phones and listen in class.

Eat Nanner Puddin’ in the Mornin’

Happy New Year to you! As you opened the kitchen cabinets or refrigerator in search for your breakfast fixings this morning, were you looking for coffee, fruit juice, cereal, or eggs? The other day, I did that very thing and then decided to for-go whipping up an egg white omelet and instead chose to eat nanner puddin’ (Southern translation: “banana pudding”) that morning.

Students, Who or What do you Honor?

Do you want to be successful in school and gain congratulations from your teachers? Do you desire to grow to become an independent and self-sufficient adult apart from your parents and make them proud? If you answered, “yes” to either of these questions, ask yourself one more question. What or who do you honor and/or value?

Rotary Club of Lawrenceville and Vocational Service

As the Christmas season winds down, presents to families in need have been delivered and ringing the bell for the Salvation Army ends, it is time to look forward. Vocational Service becomes the focus for Rotarians in January and includes:

– Adherence to and promotion of the highest ethical standards in all occupations, including fair treatment of employers, employees, associates, competitors, and the public.

– The recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations, not just those that are pursued by Rotarians.

– Contributing vocational talents to solving the problems of society and meeting the needs of the community.

Ask the Senior Care Expert | What is hospice?

Hospice is a topic about which there much confusion. Hospice care is a relatively recent development in health care. Hospice care started in England in the late 40’s and brought to the United States in the 60’s. Unfortunately, many people have the idea that hospice is a place where people go in their last days.

A Guide to Accessorizing

A beautiful room includes great furniture, appropriate lighting, the right colors, and of course – the perfect accessories. Accessories add the finishing touch, and they can transform a so-so room into a space that feels flawlessly complete.

Fibroids: What to do about them and when to do it

Uterine fibroids (“leiomyomas” in medical terms) are very common benign tumors of the uterus. They are not cancer and don’t become cancer. At least 50% of all women will have fibroids by age 50, and that percentage may be as high as 80% among black women.
