Today’s a good day to start being grateful

Today’s a good day to start being grateful

Oh, in this topsy, turvey world where anything or anyone can be destroyed by offending at least one easily-offended individual, I think I have come up with at least one thing which is not offensive. One thing we all can agree on, we need more of. One thing which will not bunch up anyone’s undies. […]

Don has uncovered a conspiracy

It must be the time year — so long October, hello Halloween, sleep deprivation and soon to come snow. Just thinking about “falling” back an hour this weekend has set my mind into a different, pondering mode. The other night as I lay in bed, safely ensconced in my bedding, lights out, it came to […]

Unfortunately Facebook is necessary evil

Unfortunately Facebook is necessary evil

I guess I am slow on the take. It took me a while until begrudgingly, kicking and screaming I joined that social media super giant Facebook. I think my three younger sisters ganged up and made me get in there to make it easier to keep me in the loop on family gatherings and the […]

Think 1st, know your 5 freedoms

Think 1st, know your 5 freedoms

I reckon there’s a reason this here column is titled, “Don’t Rush Me.” Never one to “rush” into any situation, my timeliness on issues great and small tends to fall on the late side. This week’s edition is no exception. Hey, did you know last week (Oct. 6-Oct 12) was National Newspaper Week? It’s true, […]

Don Rush: AKA ‘Fashionista’

Don Rush:  AKA ‘Fashionista’

It must be genetic. There has to be something in my Deoxyribonucleic acid which makes me such an expert. My blue-collar dad was always fussy about how his clothes fit. The buttons on his shirt had to line up with his belt buckle and zipper on his trousers. I think he called it his “gig […]

Hey, it doesn’t take a month to be kind to . . .

Hey, it doesn’t take a month to be kind to . . .

I know there are all sorts of “National” or “International” days and months for all sorts of things. I just celebrated National Cheeseburger Day last Wednesday, September 18 with a Yeti Burger from Bunkhouse Burgers in Clarkston. (I recommend that burger). I’ve written about World Naked Gardening Day, but I haven’t put words to paper […]

Communities and how they get their info

Communities and how they get their info

It’s kinda hard to think back to a time when social media has not ruled our lives (some will say “ruined” our lives) and shaped our reality. Really, it’s only been a less than 20 years since members of Facebook groups like the Hot Moms of Oxford, or the Smarmy Disenfranchised Whiners of Clarkston of […]

My “crowning” gridiron accomplishment

My “crowning” gridiron accomplishment

  You know, like many a Michiganian I love this time of year. Drive up and down our local roads and you can see the leaves turning orange. You just know it’s gonna’ be beautiful soon. And, while I love this upcoming season, I also kinda’ hate it. It’s the time our Detroit Lions get […]

Opinions are like noses . . .

Opinions are like noses . . .

I shouldn’t surprise anyone alive in the western world today, if you put your own opinion out there someone else is gonna’ take a dislike to it. I’m certainly not surprised. I am always surprised, however, at the severity of commentary folks throw back when they opine on someone elses’ opinion. These days, if people […]
