Mother’s Day

  Mother’s Day, this is the day we celebrate and honor all Mother’s. They hold a special place in our hearts for all of the work and dedication they have shown us, by teaching us right from wrong and guiding us through life and its obstacles. Mothers are always there when you need them the most to help you through your problems or just to talk to; as the saying goes “Mothers always know best.” A mother doesn’t necessarily have to be someone who gave birth to you either. A mother can be any woman who has helped raise you and guide you through life....

Each year, Earth Day is on April 22nd , and it marks the anniversary of what many consider the birth of the modern environmental movement in 1970. The height of hippie and flower-child culture in the United States in 1970, brought the death of Jimi Hendrix, the last Beatles album, and Simon & Garfunkel’s “Bridge over Troubled Water”.

Spring Break Time

  I know most of you, especially if you live in the South, are experiencing Spring Break or have just recently partook in the wonders of Spring Break. My children are off for this one glorious week this week. We have planned to go to the beach all week, since we live rather close to the beach. However, if I did not live close to the beach, we would be doing something else – guaranteed! I can’t imagine my children getting to spend an entire week off of school without doing one single thing. I know, for me, they would probably call me at work constantly or beg and plead to...
