Walk down Memory Lane gives Barb her New Year’s resolution

Christmas cards are wonderful but spare me the ‘newsletters’

Although it’s a lot of work, I love sending out cards, and I love receiving them. I love them all – the religious ones, the funny ones, the cutesy ones, and I especially love the ones with family photos included, but please, whatever you do, do not send me one of those dreaded Christmas newsletters.Read More...

The St. Rose library is so good they ought to open it more often

I've been an avid reader, a book collector, and a big fan of libraries for as long as I can remember. I enrolled in the summer reading program every year as a kid, I enrolled my daughter when she was a toddler, and I continue to use the local libraries for various reasons. When my computer crashed, the library's computers allowed me to check my e-mail. When I needed to do research, I used the library's subscription to the expensive genealogy website. I continually borrow books, I belong to one of the book discussion groups, and I've even been known to use a meeting room from time to time.
