Labor Day, it's the last hurrah of the summer season in the States. So, how did this holiday that celebrates American workers and their achievements come to be?

In the late nineteenth-century, during the Industrial Revolution, workers were on the job twelve hours a day...

I’m on my way to Mars! Well, OK, maybe not me personally, but my name is. Almost a year ago, I and a bunch of others signed up with NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) to have our names engraved on a tiny microchip that’s heading to Mars as I write thi...

When I was growing up in the northeast, my family didn’t have mechanical air conditioning. Our air conditioning was opening the windows. Oh, sure, there were occasional straight-from-Hades days, but for the most part, temperatures weren’t horrible. Nights usually coole...

Happy 4th of July weekend to all of you who live in the United States. Our country has managed to make it to 244. She is still an infant compared to many other countries in the world. England, the place we declared to be independent of in 1776, is around 1,100 years-ol...

My heart goes out to those suffering in this coronavirus pandemic and those who have lost loved ones.

My husband and I had gotten very sick over the last two weeks. We went to our doctor and were triaged outside the office building. At the time, only I had a fever.

I lost my little girl on Monday. Stewart and I are heartbroken. We had to let her go, though we didn’t want to. She was suffering. To try to keep her with us, would have been selfishness on our part at her expense.
