Coming Home…

Rachel's father passed away some 14 years ago and left us many piano's and organ's. We wanted only one, the baby grand piano that he had converted into a player piano. The only problem was that we didn't have anywhere to put it. Ironically, a friend allowed us to put...

Times Change?

Eight years ago I drove past Bella playing on the playground by herself at Penn Hebron. She wasn't crying or even looking sad. However, my heart broke...shattered. She was 30 feet away and yet a million miles from me. I couldn't help, I couldn't be there for her. She...

Offend Me

I'm not really sure why I'm posting this. It's been on my heart for weeks now and thus, I shall share. I touched on this topic years ago with this post but I want to expand. Offend me. I guarantee you, it can't be done. Go ahead. Tell me that I'm short. Laugh at how...

What Happened to the Individual?

Jussie Smollett is a liberal gay activist who wanted to besmirch people that support President Trump. The left wants to destroy America. Before that, Jussie Smollett was attacked by two white MAGA hat wearing racists who hate lgbtq people. The right wants to destroy...

In Times of Chaos

The Penn Hills community is in a state of chaos. The report came out and detailed the financial situation that the school district is in. There were recommendations and a scathing analysis. What was not there was any legal actions for those responsible. This has added...

Penn Hills Proud

Things That Make Me Happy

I could write about the government shut down. Is there a national crisis on the border? Would a wall help? Are the democrats just playing politics since they voted for a wall just 5 years ago? I could write about the media's coverage of the Covington Catholic boys and...

Honor or Dignity

There were two men staring at each other. The one had spoken poorly of the other man's business. The other returned the insult by commenting on his wife. That resulted in a slander against the other man's entire family. All of this culminated with the one man taking...

Sports

For as much as I like/care about/know(?) about sports I never really post about it. Today...I will. Steelers - Last week the Steelers played the New Orleans Saints. There were 3 horrific pass interference calls against the Steelers. There were two debilitating fumbles...

A Christmas List

No, it's not a list of things I want. It's a list of things I think. Christmas is a lot and yet just passes by so quickly.The magic of Christmas just cannot be replicated as an adult.Yeah, seeing Christmas through your kids comes close...but it just isn't the same as...

What Matters

My brother sent me this picture on Thanksgiving morning at 8:30 am. on his way to work with the message, "What are you thankful for this morning?" My first thought was obvious.  How tragic.  How sad.  How things are so different for so many us. My second thought...
