Amazing “Strides” for Parkinsons Sufferers

“Cabrini”–A Movie You MUST See

“Cabrini” is a marvelous film! it’s about the first US saint, but it isn’t a religious movie–no praying nuns or miracles.

Silly? I Think Not!

My brain is tired of trying to solve big political, geo-political, environmental, and social problems.  So, today lets contemplate questions that some might think trivial–yea, even silly.  But don’t all questions deserve at least attempted answers?

Do twins ever realize that one of them is unplanned? What if my dog only brings back my ball because he thinks I like throwing it? If poison expires, is it more poisonous or is it no longer poisonous? Which letter is silent in the word “Scent,” the S or the C? Why is the letter W, in English, called double U?
