Carved In Stone

A Monumental History Lesson

On July 4, 1863, Union soldiers began the arduous and grizzly task of burying over 7,000 dead bodies in trenches and shallow graves. Later, as rains had washed away the ground cover re-exposing the stench of blackened and gnarled limbs, the town of Gettysburg took on the task of exhuming the bodies and consecrating them in the newly created Soldiers National ...

Life During War Time

I thought the shortage of toilet paper in March was bad. But now I find that soon we may not be able to secure illegal fireworks. What next, a run on citronella candles?

I am stocking up on rolls of Charmin again, which I plan to ignite and launch into the sky from my backyard on the 4th of July.

It is still June, and it seems everywhere fireworks are exploding without explanation.

Do You Know When You’re Happy?

“If you’re happy and you know it clap your hands, if you’re happy and you know it clap your hands, if you’re happy and you know it and you really want to show it if you’re happy and you know it clap your hands.”

Thinking about this song brings back joyous memories of dancing around my family room singing it with my children and perhaps, even having it sung ...

Tell Them While You Can

This story was recently shared with me. It is a beautiful example of the power of positive reinforcement.

One day a teacher asked her students to list the names of the other students in the class. She told them to think of the nicest things they could say about each of their classmates and write it down. The students completed the assignment, handed in their papers, and left the room. The ...

The Ancestor by Danielle Trussoni

The Ancestor by Danielle Trussoni (William Morris/Harper Collins, 2020)

In writing a contemporary novel in the Gothic tradition, it is impossible not to compare aspects of great Gothic novels that have come before. The excellent, new book, The Ancestor, by Danielle Trussoni fits the description of a Neo-Gothic. However, drawing comparisons between previously written novels is half the fun ...

Anyone who has ever planted mint knows it can grow like a weed.

New Jersey Date Night: Restaurants with Great Outdoor Dining

New Jersey Date Night is a series on NJ Flavor by relationship writer Craig Rogers.

“Come out, come out wherever you are!” were Glinda’s famous words 81 years ago, and they’ve never been more applicable to New Jersey now. People have lots of reasons to come out in June; not only is it Pride Month but also we now can enjoy a date night in an actual restaurant, ...
