This is McCoy Creek, and they write “Fishing in creeks and rivers is quiet, safe, and exciting when we can catch ... Read more

    @MyKitchenTable: Tuesday, July 14, 2020 Dear Friend: Teddy Roosevelt said, “Far and away the best prize that life offers is the chance to work hard at work worth doing.” That is the situation for so many of us who are trying our best to somehow get the nation back on track. Despite the stumbles and hurdles yet to cross, I remain convinced that with hard work we are indeed on a path that will lead us to a finish line of accomplishment. I have been reading the book on Frederick Douglass by David B... Read more

    @MyKitchenTable: Wednesday, July 8, 2020 Dear Friend: Someone reminded me, “If you feel down just consider that the sun sinks every night — but it rises again in the morning." And Will Rogers added, “Don’t let yesterday take up too much of today." I had a number of folks inquire how they might be considered for the Pfizer COVID-19 clinical trials. That will likely start this month with production slated for their Kalamazoo facility. You’ll remember that they anticipate preparing as much as 100M ... Read more

    @MyKitchenTable: Tuesday, July 7, 2020 Dear Friend: Albert Schweitzer said, “Man must cease attributing his problems to his environment, and learn again to exercise his will—his personal responsibility.” It was a different era back then, but it would easy to add Dick Cheney’s quote a couple weeks ago when he said, “Real men wear masks!"

And we are all mortal.” That comes from the book, “Healing”, a journal of tolerance and understanding by Muhammad Ali and Thomas Hauser - a truly great collection of quotes written to combat bigotry and prejudice that Ali gave to me in 1997. Some good news continues on the vaccine ... Read more
