Column: Music player skips tracks and how-to instructions
The instructions weren’t simple. They were as far away from simple as they could be. I had a cell phone now with three gigs of storage capability; why then shouldn’t I just move some music onto my phone, the better to listen to if I ever go on an airplane somewhere. That’s...

Column: Cure a nosebleed.. and other home remedies
Everyone has their own home remedy. No one else’s is any good. Only your own. Peter P. lived on the farm down the road from us when we first moved here. He was old and set in his ways, and still strong at 70. “When I don’t feel good, I take a spoonful of number two fuel...

Column: The deer hunting spy: A shaky return to the stand after 35 years
I have not been deer hunting in 35 years. Saying that, I feel like a spy just coming out from behind enemy lines, having lived and interacted amidst a culture that revolves around The Doe, The Buck, The Hunt, The Gun, The Stand, The, The, The… A little scary. At the moment...

COLUMNIST: Brush hog offers ultimate guy experience
A brush hog is the common name for a large, flat, heavy-duty mower that fits on the three-point attachment behind a farm tractor, and is driven by the tractor's power take-off. They're quite handy, will mow large weeds, small trees, and gopher mounds which go through with a satisfying...

COLUMNIST: Let's all 'go do something fun'
I learn something every year. I learn over and over that words can come in handy. Sometimes. When, that is, they come in at all. Sometimes they don't come. Sometimes you despair at ever finding anything to write about, or if you do, finding the words with which to do it. I once read...

COLUMNIST: Baby pictures peering back in time
There are several pictures of my two granddaughters pasted inside the glass doors of my kitchen cabinets. They are now more or less one year old. Each time I go to fetch something from whatever cabinet, they are there peering out at me. Well, actually, they're peering at the camera,...

COLUMNIST: Sometimes things don't make sense
"I know you don't ignore me on purpose," said the woman in my life the other day. This of course begs the question of a couple of things: First, please don't feed me home run lines like that one, because I might bust a gut swinging for the left field fence and answering that statement...
