It’s just a matter of years ago nobody had cell phones, tablets or computers, as far as that goes. But times have changed big time. Just recently I had a doctor’s appointment in Commons One in Greensburg. As I sat by the front door waiting for my ride to return to Latrobe, I got an idea. As people departed, why not offer them a “good day.” So, as they proceeded to exit, I raised my voice exclaiming “Have a nice day.” Read more

At around age six, I began collecting baseball cards. Almost immediately, I sorted the players on the cards into each of their respective teams and split the teams into American and National leagues. Among the leagues, I alphabetized the team names beginning with “Angels” and ending with “White Sox.” Within teams, I alphabetized the players by last names. Read more

Families, adults with intellectual disabilities and autism, organizations that provide services, and disability advocates are witnessing the collapse of Pennsylvania’s intellectual disability and autism (ID/A) system. Day programs have closed or scaled back services, at least 6,500 people have lost services in the past 18 months, and families are facing unemployment and financial ruin to stay home and care for adults with disabilities. The reason is clear: the payment rates set by the Department of Human Services have not kept pace with the cost of providing home and community-based services (HCBS), so provider organizations are unable to recruit, hire and retain Direct Support Professionals (DSPs) to work in these programs.

In the last three weeks or so, I have held conversations with people who always utter similar verbiage. “I don’t watch television because there’s never ever anything good to watch.” It’s almost a laughing matter to me. If these people realized what words were coming out of their mouths, they may think first before blurting out their attitudes concerning what’s being seen now on the flat screen device. Read more

Emergency preparedness experts recommend that you have a “go bag” and a “stay bin” for disasters: kits with supplies to help you survive a few days if you have to evacuate your home or shelter in place. Preparing your finances for natural disasters is also smart. Having cash on hand, access to credit and the right insurance coverage can help you get through perilous times. Fortifying your home against disasters also can be a good investment. Read more

Last week I talked about Stevia, a natural sweetener found in many drinks and foods. One I didn’t dwell on but will give attention to today will be dark raw honey. As a past vendor at Latrobe’s Farmers Market, I got to meet many different people from all walks of life. A couple from the area, John and Amanda Harman, sold bee products from their hives. What I learned from them is invaluable. It is something, I believe, everyone should know. Read more

Whether you call it “The Great Resignation,” “The Great Reshuffle” or just high time for a change, millions of American workers are looking for new jobs — and some have already quit the ones they have. Better pay isn’t necessarily the motivator, labor experts say. Many people are seeking greater flexibility, the ability to work remotely or other nonfinancial benefits. Read more

My daughter likes to ask me what my name is. I say “Dad.” Pointing to her nose, she asks, “What’s this?” I reply, “Nose.” Then she opens her empty hands and asks, “What am I holding?” to which I say, “Nothing.” Putting my answers together, she says, “See? Dad knows nothing.” She’s four. Read more
