know that April is also National Humor Month? Obviously, you are a
person who enjoys humor or you wouldn't be reading this article. A

The Seventy-Year-Old Car
clackity, clackity. "What is that noise?" I wondered.
No, the left-turn signal was not on this time. I could not tell
where the sound was coming from. When the car stopped, the noise
stopped too. "It will probably go away," I thought.
"It's nothing." MORE
has finally happened - dementia. I knew I was getting old but I didn't
expect to lose my mind so soon.
I had a dental appointment the other day, my 6 months

Explaining the Winter
you been watching the winter Olympics on TV? There are a total of 98
events in 15 sport disciplines and it seems that NBC is determined to
cover them all. We have become intimate with many sports, such as, the

"We are infested with ladybugs, thousands,

It was a text message from my daughter.
Naturally, it was at a time when I was so busy at the office I

I wonder how my hair would look blue? MORE

woman with long hair streaked with dark blue color. I guess I was a little
shocked and that was probably the intended result, or else she simply wanted to

I don't know how it happened, boss. Coke has been number one for
over a decade. Everyone loves a Coke. "It's the real
thing." We made that slogan up ourselves, right here in the
And now we've been displaced, reduced to a mere number three as
