I don't know whether news outlets are strapped for news today but this has been a day of one weird, stretch your credibility, run of stories. Nordstrom's has been selling an 85 dollar rock wrapped in rich, vegetable-tanned American leather... Continue reading

As I was driving east into Illinois on the Poplar Street Bridge yesterday I was again struck by all the road surface patches. After all the many years and months of MoDOT closing lanes on that bridge for resurfacing and... Continue reading

I was shocked to learn that the wife of Missouri governor-elect, Eric Greitens, was robbed at gunpoint at 6 pm last night after leaving Cafe Ventana in the Central West End. 6 o'clock! That is not a time of day... Continue reading

Last week I made an online purchase from a reputable company and filled out the various lines necessary to complete it. One of the "required" areas was phone number. They tell us this is so the delivery company can call... Continue reading

Confession: I have a regular late afternoon habit, spreading some cream cheese on Triscuits, pouring a beer or glass of wine, and sitting down to the news. I always share some with Ferdie. So it was with some shock that... Continue reading

For some reason we have so many leaves this year and to make matters worse, the trees have been very slow to drop them. Leaves all over the ground and leaves thick in the trees. Yesterday the campus lawn service... Continue reading

Yesterday I went over the top grousing about grocery shopping. Going into the Richmond Center Schnucks the past few days was probably the topper to a way too busy time right now. There is so much going on, so many... Continue reading

I like sports and follow most professional leagues fairly closely, but have never gotten into pro soccer. I'll pay attention to local high school soccer teams and the American team during the World Cup, but that's as far as it... Continue reading

We've all heard about road rage, but I've become a person who gets grocery aisle rage. Whatever has turned food shoppers into people who think they're the only ones in the store is beyond me, but more than frustrating. Way... Continue reading

Vox.com tweeted this headline to a story link yesterday: "There’s a clear age bias in turkey-related emergency room visits". That subject made me click the link to see what age bias had to do with turkeys. The actual story headline... Continue reading
