Sometimes I feel like my daughter doesn’t stand a fair chance of learning Grammar.

Today is Easter, the most significant event for Christians in their entire liturgy; because it is the basis on which their religion is built. No Resurrection, no true religion. This was the minister’s over-riding message at the church Earl attends

If I weren’t going to a St. Patrick’s Day party this evening, I might have forgotten the day completely.
My mother, one hundred percent Irish, would never have approved. Her favorite color was green, and St. Patrick’s Day was up

Today is the twenty-ninth of February, that elusive day that comes around every four years. It just so happens to always coincide with the years of our presidential elections, which means one more day of campaigning, one more day of
