Dear Editor:
There’s nothing quite as alarming as the blaring siren of an ambulance or fire truck fast approaching. Whether you’re in your car or safely in your home, knowing that someone – somewhere – may be in a life-threatening situation automatically increases our level of alertness.

Of wasps and lawns

I suppose I can safely say that spring has officially arrived, even though I haven’t been buzzed by a mosquito. Yet.
