Nobody wants to just drop this whole thing in our new governor's lap. OK. That's probably not accurate. There are undoubtedly lots of people who'd just as soon do that very thing, but it would not be fair for us to blame Gov. Brownback for the enormous tax drain that has become the Kansas Statehouse.

Part of the society may give lip service to sobriety, but it isn't working, as ...
Gardening isn't for every body. To be honest, gardening is hard work. You have to prepare the ground, create a good seed bed, plant, weed, water, weed some more, and, finally if you do everything right, you get a harvest - unless when you don't, of course.

The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It's a very mean and nasty place and I don't care how tough you are, it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't about how hard ya hit. It's about how hard you can get it and keep moving forward. How much you can take and ...
The Associated Press brief said it all. It was just a cutline, really, referring to a series of striking, moving photos of a genuine American hero. "Staff Sgt.

Challenges. All of us have them. And, it is easy to sit around and point fingers and blame others for our failures. It is easy to throw out exaggerated or incorrect information and hope people will listen and take up our cause because of the passion behind our words.
