Opinions

A pirate’s life is for everyone again. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales shows there’s some waters still worth exploring in this fifth installment of the franchise. The plot follows the continued adventures of Captain Jack Sparrow, played by Johnny Depp, as he’s joined by the son of...
Step aside, boys, a new hero’s arrived to save the summer. Wonder Woman is as invincible as the heroine herself. After making her first film appearance in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, Gal Gadot is back as the sword-wielding Amazon in her own movie. The plot tells the story of how Diana,...
First love can be wonderful and clumsy, so can movies about it. Based on YA novel of the same name, Everything, Everything is a boy meets girl story with one little twist. If the girl, Maddy (played by Amandla Stenberg) steps outside, she’ll die. Diagnosed with a deadly inefficient immune system,...
Years ago my friend Jim and I agreed to meet for a workout. I didn’t make it there. Slept in or something. And I never saw Jim again, because a couple days later he took his life. I felt terrible. But there were, of course, undercurrents in his life that few if any of us knew about. Couldn’t...
Business decisions are never an easy task for anyone involved.  I’ve had my fair share of decisions impacting the businesses I operate and I’ll be the first to admit they agonize me the most.  One thing I learned long ago was that you’re never going to make everyone happy and you’re almost always...
It’s one of the nastiest habits I’ve ever known.  I don’t understand the glamorization around it.  To me there is nothing more disgusting that a person can do to their body. Without question, it’s probably one of the unhealthiest things in life.  If you haven’t guessed it yet, I’m referring to...
It’s time to save yourself a seat at the theater for Guardians of the Galaxy. Again. Everyone’s favorite sometimes superheroes are back in an even edgier volume two. This time around the guardians are saving the galaxy from a monstrous conquer, while also confronting fears closer to home and their...
That may be so. I think we’ve had some pioneers in  the family. But were they truly  primogenitors?   Somehow, that just doesn’t sound right.   Anyway, we keep occasionally practicing at the country living thing.    Last year we lived on a farm where a feral cat kept entering the basement through a...
Ask people who are close to me and they will tell you that I’m not real crazy about social media, especially Facebook. I actually have a real disdain for it all.   I really don’t see the lure of posting the personal junk that many people do on a routine basis. At times, the postings are harmful,...
We wait all winter long for a sign of spring.  Then the first robin is spotted.  Then a dandelion.  Coats become lighter and sometimes even optional.  It truly is springtime.   It’s a time of renewal.  People spring clean.  Lawns are raked.  Gardens are tilled. Spring offers a promise of warm days...
