This last Saturday, my family and I suffered a terrible loss. Someone drove down Beaver Loop and hit our dog that we've had for 9 years. She was an enormous part of our lives and has seen us through some very dark times. She was smart and loved us and was very much like one of my children. This pers...

I recently returned home after three weeks in Central Peninsula Hospital. From the moment I arrived at the Emergency room until I was discharged, I received the best care I have ever had in all my life. From the Doctors to Housekeeping, everyone was excellent.

Two years ago, I heard the story on Fox News about a Military Working Dog whose handler was killed in the service of his country. The broken-hearted soldier's parents adopted the dog and brought him home with them to love and care for. I have always loved animals and wanted to help one of our four f...

Is the Democratic majority in the U.S. Senate to blame for high gas prices at the pump? How wonderfully convenient it is to point the finger at Washington. It fixes nothing, but it sure makes us feel better. In fact, blaming others not only wastes time, it reveals a certain level of complacency and ...

I recently read this information about the Suicide rate among our Veterans. Unbelievable; Every "80" hrs, a veteran commits Suicide. Why? To be able to survive in the Muslim Nations, you need eyes on the front, side, and rear of your head. They proclaim they will kill all Infidels and all Christians...
