I’ve always been a sucker for the sappy, plot-easily-followed kind of “flick” that ends happily. Take Mr. Holland’s Opus--and others like it--where movie-goers had best take multiple hankies.

A few days ago, my wife and I enjoyed a short road trip. Typically an hour’s drive to Stephenville, this day it was twice that. It took 40 minutes to make it through Granbury, where folks--weary of “sheltering”--seemed happy to be in their cars again, perhaps looking for “essential places.”...

What in your world appears to be too big for you to conquer? What overwhelms you? What is ahead of you in the path of life that has...
Toni: My Medicare Part B enrollment nightmare began when I was laid off from my job on March 10th. I was given inaccurate information when I left my job and enrolled in COBRA to have knee surgery when I turned 67. I am a 69-year-old female who has been employed by 3 different companies, and no one...
