The Best Things

Many things happened during this particular year of history – can you guess the year from these clues? “December 1963 (Oh What a Night)” by The 4 Seasons, “All By Myself” by Eric Carmen, and “Silly Love Songs” by Wings topped the charts during the year. The average […]

Long Cold Winter

The ground is white with snow again today, as it has been for the past several weeks. March in Michigan typically means longer days warming the wanting ground and stirring waiting roots.  Not this year…the winter air is cold and crisp and the morning sky steel blue.  This […]
