Carl was my roommate our senior year in college. Following graduation, he asked me and Tim, another

Hot and full-blown, summer comes breathlessly into the hills. She blows her sultry breath over the countryside, coaxing the gardens to grow and flourish, and covers the hills with thick, green underbrush.
The early garden crops seem to grow overnight, while the weeds grow almost as fast as the vegetables.
It happened in the checkout lane down at the Soup ‘R’ Market last week. We discussed it thoroughly, of course, and no one knows yet what to make of it.
As sometimes happens, when we are glancing at the tabloids to see who fathered Bigfoot’s new baby, we get into discussions of trivia. Annette

As part of our weekly Wednesday training class I talk with clients on many of the practical lessons I have learned from being Trustee and just by living as long as I have. Because the office of the township trustee helps with emergency financial needs, most of the lessons I talk about relate to money,
