Our understanding of modern marriage arose about 800 years ago when people didn’t live as long as we do today.   When a couple committed to love honor and cherish each other until death do us part, it wasn’t that big a deal because the typical lifespan was only about 40 years! Through advances in modern […] ...

I once heard a comedian who did a bit about gift cards that really hit home.  In his monologue, he mocked the concept of taking $100 that could be spent ANYWHERE and then exchanging it for $100 that could only be spent at one store. I also dislike gift cards.  I find them to be […] ...

It was a schoolmate’s birthday pool party. I was sitting on a lawn chair enjoying the sunshine. The kids were splashing in the pool as the parents mingled and made small talk.

When I hear people rationalize spending money on services based upon the concept of “what’s your time worth”, I get a little defensive. In a previous life I was also someone who would value ALL of my time based upon my HOURLY WAGES at my job.  It is easy to make this argument, but it doesn’t […] ...

My son twisted his knee about 6 weeks ago. He tried to stay active but it kept feeling worse. After about a week, we took him to an orthopedist to look him over. An MRI was ordered and a secondary referral was made for a rheumatologist to rule out some other symptoms that could have […] ...
