Vehicles tell much about people and the economy at a particular time. When the economy is good, people prefer luxury cars with class. Gas mileage and payments are the least of a person’s worry. However, when times get a little rough, one can see a strong sway back to the smaller economy cars. One might conclude that a person with a lot of money, who prefers an economy car or a car with no chrome, air conditioning, or padded seats, to be one who is extremely conservative or even “tight.” On the other hand, a person of low means who purchases a fancy luxury car or a powerful sports vehicle, may fit the stereotype of one who is living “beyond his means” or else is trying “to keep up with the Joneses.” These are only generalizations, but some truth can be seen in them.

Getting your family to eat healthier snacks Print E-mail

Healthy snacks help ensure your family is getting the vitamins and nutrients they need.

With so much junk food available on store shelves these days, it’s important to take a step back from time-to-time and evaluate what you feed your family. Snack time in particular is when a lot great parents serve up some not-so-great offerings.

“Manners” Print E-mail

Some may say that adhering to basic rules of etiquette is only for the rich class, but for me, I believe that manners is that cog that separates the civilized from the barbaric. Every society has rules of conduct by which to live. If there were no rules, we would surely have chaos. Etiquette seems to smooth the rough areas of life and bring about harmony to people and their relationships.

"Theories" Print E-mail

I suppose we all have ideas or opinions that we think may help solve the problems of our fellow man. Webster defines theory as “A system of assumptions or accepted principles and rules of procedures devised to analyze, predict, or otherwise explain the nature of behavior of a specified set of phenomena.” In laymen’s terms, this means that anyone may have a theory on any current problem or situation.

“School Bus Driving” Print E-mail

I saw an old friend the other day in the supermarket and she commented, “Marvin, why don’t you write a piece about school bus drivers”? I thought about it after I got home and concluded, “Why not!”

Some of the most ignored and least appreciated public servants are the school bus drivers.  Now, I know all of them are not saints, but they do a difficult job, and really, most of them are nice folks.

“Rex” Print E-mail

I have owned a dog of some type all my life. I prefer hounds or terriers. They are so friendly and gentle. None of the dogs I have ever owned were valuable. Whatever value my dogs had, came from the love and attention they gave me. They were always glad to see me early in the morning or late at night. My dogs were content to let me boss and never challenged or took offense to anything I did. They make me feel important. Whenever the world seemed to be falling apart, all I had to do to see that someone cared was to whistle for my dog and he would come wagging his tail.
