Yesterday afternoon Christian's 5th grade soccer team had a game at Francis R. Slay Park just off McCausland. It was very hot, temperatures hitting 96 officially, but higher in that hot sun. This particular park is named after the current... Continue reading

This story popped up and you have to wonder if the woman in the center of it will be forbidden to do anymore cooking. Confession time, I'm paranoid about food poisoning, I obsess over temperature, how long something has sat... Continue reading

I'm telling you it's getting harder and harder to get down the aisles in most Schnucks stores. That company is having its issues with unions and not for profit groups after they outsourced their warehouse and then put an end... Continue reading

According to a productivity expert the 4 a.m. hour (4-6) is the most productive time of day. "When you have peace and quiet and you’re not concerned with people trying to get your attention, you’re dramatically more effective and can... Continue reading

It's to the point where you have to take all the studies regarding climate heating and cooling with a grain of salt. It's enough to make my head spin trying to make sense of each new piece of information which... Continue reading

When you're driving: STAY OFF YOUR PHONE. Every employee of any workplace, every family member everywhere, should emphasize to its members that any phone call or text while driving can wait til the car is parked. No item of business... Continue reading

I heard the stone frontpiece which is pictured above will be saved, and now that your mention it, the cornerstone is pretty important. Will check on that tomorrow, there may be things inside.

KFUO radio began in the 20's, the oldest Christian radio station in the country and one of the earliest of any stations. In 1926 the station built its studio building on the campus of Concordia Seminary where it stands today.... Continue reading

Saw this early today: "Hillary Clinton to give a speech today attacking "alt-right" a phrase 99 percent of Americans have no idea what she means." I've seen this "alt-right", maybe "alt-left" and have had absolutely no energy or interest in... Continue reading

Last year I wrote about the many Golden Retrievers abandoned on the streets of Turkey because they'd been overbred and lacked people who wanted them. At one time these dogs were a big status symbol in that country but all... Continue reading

What a beautiful evening last night and the church cemetery was quiet and lovely as we walked through before sunset. We came across the grave of former major league baseball player from Collinsville, Terry Moore. Dale was stopped in his... Continue reading

When a Clayton home went up for sale a while back, the city decided to buy it for 650,000. The purpose in owning this home next to Hanley Park was to tear it down. This park holds the oldest building... Continue reading

This column in the Washington Post yesterday by Karen Heller is ridiculous. She promotes the idea that we do not need air conditioning. "I don't need air conditioning and neither do you." Let's tell this to families of people who... Continue reading

I'm sort of skeptical about this new report on car colors. "As odd as it may seem, orange, yellow and green vehicles depreciate less than conventional white, silver and black ones, according to a recent study. Orange cars depreciated 21.6... Continue reading

Yesterday I mentioned how much we wondered about a Cubs fan who is always in the front row of every game. He always wears a pink hat and green shirt. Well, thanks to my sister in law, Pam, we now... Continue reading

Every time we watch a Cubs game we see the same man behind home plate who is wearing the same outfit game after game. There he is with the pink hat and green shirt. He wears this outfit at every... Continue reading

A so true tweet from Mollie Hemingway last night: "Every newsroom should place new/different reporters on 2016 beat immediately. We desperately need some fresh approaches." Which was followed by a reply from someone else: "Why not go all the way... Continue reading
