With the advent of constant cell phone use and texting it seems that nice table manners have gone by the wayside. We are all now so anxious to have our say, talking with one's mouth full now appears to be acceptable.
On Saturday, Sept. 12, roughly 60,000 aggrieved conservatives converged on Washington, D.C., to participate in the "grass roots" but Glenn Beck-inspired anti-Obama rally.

She quotes Stuart Sevo as saying, "Offshore winds generally originate from the ocean, travel over the mountains and settle into the valleys."
Summer is a time for lemonade, swimsuits and sunscreen. Days are longer, and no school means there is more time to spend together as a family. Every year, I have set a goal to accomplish a list of things I want to do over the course of the summer with my family.
