When I was a kid, my Mom liked to make a "breakfast supper" every now and then. You know what I mean. She'd cook up a batch of eggs, sausage, grits, bacon, and toast or biscuits and gravy. I remember... Continue reading

Sometimes I'm confronted with the question......."Is there life after death?" Some say that once we breathe our last breath here on earth, life is over. There's nothing waiting for us on the other side. It doesn't exist. Others take a... Continue reading

All it takes is a germ. Grab a handrail, a doorknob, a Wal-Mart shopping cart, or even shake hands with someone who's just coughed in their hand and placed it there. Bingo. Germs lurk in the dark (or even broad... Continue reading
