What is it about a grandchild?
By Carole Townsend

We’ve heard it from our friends for years, my husband and I. “Oh, just wait until you have grandchildren. There’s nothing like it,” they’d say, and we’d smile and nod, having no idea, really, what they meant.

Petiquette matters
By Carole Townsend

Are you a pet owner? We are. We just love our dogs, Cassie, Chester, Cosette and Raleigh. They are all rescues, from the 5 lb. long-hair Chihuahua to the 75 lb. Goldendoodle, and they all love people, other dogs, birds, butterflies and just life in general.

The movie theater is not your living room
By Carole Townsend

Today, I’m going to go down a path that I’ve already been down before with you all,  not because I have run out of topics about which to write, but because the issue continues to arise and in my opinion, it does so because as a civil society, we are deteriorating.

Some things just leave me scratching my head
By Carole Townsend

There are some things I run across in the course of a day that just beg the question,“Who on earth thought of this, and why?” You know what I’m talking about, those everyday items that either make your life a little bit easier or a little bit more difficult.

We have to know when to quit
By Carole Townsend

One of the best decisions I ever made, for both myself and for my family, was to just bite the bullet and leave corporate America for unchartered territory. It’s hard to explain my motivation for doing so; I just knew that it was time for me to help my husband start his business and to be home for our children during their middle school years.

Men and women have different perspectives
By Carole Townsend

There are days when my patience is stretched to (and past) its limits. Let me just say at the outset that it’s my fault. It has to be. My husband is a great guy – sweet, kind, generous, thoughtful and very much a man’s man.
