A New Year's resolution we all should keep
I don’t usually make New Year’s resolutions because, for most of us, they seem impossible to keep. We have good intentions, of course, when we resolve to put our bad habits behind us, to lose the extra 20 pounds or quit smoking or learn a new hobby.

I confess: I'm a present shaker
I'm a present shaker from way back. When I was a little boy, I would rattle any Christmas present that had my name on it. And if I might be allowed to brag a bit, I actually got quite good at it figuring out what each rattle was.

Finding the right tree isn't always easy

Science has confirmed I'm happier with Milly
You all know that I’m a big lover of dogs. I had Glory, the black and white springer spaniel, for nearly 15 years, and now Milly, the liver and white springer spaniel, has been with me for almost six years.

I don't celebrate 'Black Friday'
This is a big week for a lot of folks. Friday is “Black Friday,” allegedly the busiest shopping day of the year. I wouldn't know myself. I won’t be there.
