I hit a bucket list item this summer.  The Grand Canyon!  Many of you may know that I have 4 children, and the one thing that children do well is grow up fast.  A few years ago, we started planning a family vacation before my oldest got to the point where he was in col...

Golf is a difficult game.  I don’t play often, but when I do, I’m reminded that there are some things in life that just don’t come easy, no matter how it looks on TV.  And I’ve found I usually play better when I don’t try too hard.  What a conundrum.  When I play my nu...

I can’t wait for retirement!  I’ve been busier during retirement than when I was working.  When I was your age I wanted to retire, but now I want to keep working.  Retirement?  What’s that?

My mom makes the best homemade ice cream, and when she’s making ice cream you know it’s summertime.  This is just another reason that summer is the best time of the year.  When I was growing up six of my favorite words had to be, “School is out for the summer!”  Summer...

Beware the ides of March.  In like a lion, out like lamb.  March Madness.  So many mists in March you see, so many frosts in May will be…. 

The month of March is a tough one.  Christmas is long gone and new years’ resolutions have surely been abandoned (i...

I like basketball.  Some of you may not know that basketball is a big deal in Maine.  On nearly every cold wintry Friday night in the far reaches of northern Maine I guarantee there will be a packed gym in a small town with locals cheering on their high school team.  A...

Happy New Year!  As we launch into a brand-new year I wish all residents, families, and friends a joyous and prosperous new year.  The malls will be empty now, but the gyms will be packed, at least for the next few weeks.  I know we’ll all be motivated to get out there...

Well, the snow has come early this year!  Two snow events before December after a few years of no snow until January.  Living in New England is an adventure.  New Englanders can be oddly proud of our misery at times.  Red Sox fans spent 86 years wallowing in self-pity...
