In the heat of battle: Never give up!

Posted: Thursday, Jul 2nd, 2015
It is said that in the heat of a battle during World War II, Winston Churchill gave a speech that consisted of one sentence. He said, "Never, never, never, never give up!"

Posted: Tuesday, Jun 23rd, 2015
Not long ago my husband showed up with a sandwich for lunch that he bought at a local supermarket. I thought it was going to be our usual: turkey and provolone with lettuce on a hard roll, always plenty for both of us. At $6.50, how could you go wrong?
