SHREWSBURY, Massachusetts – Has it ever struck you that as we’ve aged, the advertisements on TV have gravitated more and more to the prevention and cure of all kinds of ailments. Not only that but due to those commercials we’ve all become medical experts, using technical and esoteric words for things that we’ve always known [...]

SHREWSBURY, Massachusetts – Someone with whom I once worked told me about a time when he visited New York as a youngster and went into a luncheonette to buy a drink. He asked the girl behind the counter for a bottle of tonic but she didn’t understand what he meant and he was at a [...]

SHREWSBURY, Massachusetts – A very popular TV series genre has always been the doctor shows, surreptitiously depicting life and death in the ER or in the specialist’s office, where every week a different malady, trauma, or rare disease is diagnosed and successfully treated amidst the personal troubles and angst of the physicians and nurses. What [...]

SHREWSBURY, Massachusetts – Dreams are strange and wonderful phenomena, perhaps serving some psychologically beneficial purpose besides entertaining us while we sleep.

SHREWSBURY, Massachusetts – Several days ago I received an e-Mail from a friend containing a story about a college student’s essay written for a chemistry exam.

Soccer, known to the rest of the world as football, is claimed to be the most popular sport on Earth but to me and so many others here in the U.S. it’s also the most boring. Despite efforts over the years to get us excited about it, including all the hype associated with the signing [...]

Did you ever wonder how books come to be written? Well I don’t know about other authors but for me (who is not really an author but just a scribbler of nonsense and inane thoughts), the idea for a future book happened right out of the blue. My wife and I had gone to our [...]

SHREWSBURY, Massachusetts – One of the most common sayings heard is “You can’t tell a book by its cover,” a metaphor indicating that things are not always what they seem or aren’t necessarily as good as advertised. Movies that sound interesting are often duds regardless of the stars who are in the cast, foods made [...]

Movies have always been a big part of our culture, not only reflecting our tastes and attitudes but transforming them as well. Whether consciously or not, we tend to emulate the way the performers look and behave, even adopting their speech patterns and the words they use. Films often become so ingrained in our memories [...]

SHREWSBURY, Massachusetts - We’re all aware of how the advances in science and medicine have dramatically extended our life spans and improved the quality of existence in general.
