I just won’t mention it…

The change to Daylight Saving comes this Sunday. And for as long as I’ve been writing a column, I’ve given a twice-a-year rant against time changes. In all that time, I’ve had one result: Nothing.

Not much that’s funny

Sorry folks, I can’t think of anything funny right now. The news is full of school shootings, including the recent one which took place on Valentine’s Day in Florida.

Waiting for daffodils

Our daffodils haven’t bloomed yet, but they’re coming up. Ours are never quite the earliest. Some folks may have already had a couple of blooms.

And now, Valentine’s Day…

So now we come to Valentine’s Day. Of all the “holidays” that we don’t take an actual holiday for, this one has to be the strangest.

Punxsuwhatty who?

So what’s the big deal with Groundhog Day, I was thinking. My attitude, I confess, was a lot like the Phil Connors character played by Bill Murray in the movie, “Groundhog Day.” And I didn’t think I’d be changing my mind.

I get a snow day…

Went to bed Monday night figuring nothing would really happen. Woke up Tuesday morning and discovered I was mistaken.

Face it, it’s over

Well, in case no one has noticed (ha!), there’s no huge slate of college football games on tap for this Saturday. Yep, like the old Roy Orbison song, “It’s Over.” No matter whether one is happy, sad or outraged over the outcome of that national championship final, college football is going away until next fall.
