Here’s a photo of the shamrock plant that grew in my yard in Florida. It was a hostess gift from a friend who came to dinner at our house one year. I planted it in the yard, and it blossomed every spring. I wonder whether it is still growing there. We’ll be visiting there in […]

A few weeks ago, I blogged about daylight savings time. Today I want to talk about changing time zones. Right now I am in Arizona, which is in the Mountain Time zone. Arizona is one of the states that does not change to daylight savings time. So now, instead of there being a two-hour time […]

Posted Dec 29 2011 in , , , , , , ,

During this time of year, newspaper and television reporters reflect on the past year and recall important events and people.
