I guess you could call this a two-part series of my getting my PeeVeeicle (scooter). After I got it and started visiting parts of Latrobe I had not seen for some time, I realized I was in for some heavy-duty thinking as to just how I would get into certain buildings.
Do you want to correct people’s grammar or do you want to have friends? You can either be a “grammar Nazi,” the “grammar police,” the “grammar assistant to the regional manager” or you can have friends. It’s as simple as that. You can’t have your judgment cake and eat it, too.
Never have I felt sorrier for cities. Their population densities, their scale, their residents’ ingrained gregariousness and their reliance on public transportation combine to create dangerous breeding conditions for COVID-19.
HARRISBURG — Pennsylvania's primary election will be held June 2, five weeks after the original date because of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
The same is true for this year’s maple season, but in a positive way – at least as far as Mike Lynch and Joel Friedline are concerned. Both producers said they experienced record maple production this year.
When we were born, God created us with a number of sensory devises that we use to ‘benefit’ others and ourselves. I use that word, ‘benefit,’ loosely because when I speak of it, I don’t always state of that which is favorable. It’s true, ‘benefit’ comes from the Latin ‘benefactum,’ but if we are saying things of negativity, can that subject evolve into something positive?
It seems like our whole world has been canceled in the past week. Coronavirus has changed our daily lives from school cancelations to large events being postponed or canceled. Yes, the word “canceled” is all over the place, but we’re (rightly so) more concerned about making sure we all stay safe and healthy. As we all adjust to a radically different world than the one we lived in a week ago, I’m going to focus for a minute on British and American English spellings. By doing so, we can know the correct way to spell “canceled” in the U.S.
The article, written by Stephen Starr, was published in NationalGeographic.com’s Travel section and titled “Can Appalachia’s world-class rafting help coal towns thrive?”
I happened to be talking to a friend the other day when I mentioned that the Bible is actually a daily guidance book. After conversing about various subjects, I told him, “I’m thinking about trying to kick a bad habit. I find myself complaining too much.” Knowing the fact that it was one of his faults, as well, I thought I’d try some reverse psychology on him and see if he’d go for the bait.
You go down into that valley... until you come to a big creek – that’s Crooked Creek, glowing with golden acids from the mines upstream – and across the creek and up a red-dog road under a railroad trestle through a tunnel in the woods.
The memory is, in my mind, a little foggy, but nevertheless sharp as a used toothpick. It was early in the morning, not so to the point that it interfered with my beauty sleep, for I maintained all of that good stuff as I thought my wife was also doing. Of course, of the two, she had a whole lot more to lose than me, in more ways than one, as you’ll soon find out.
They are an artist couple who just go by the names of Suzanne and Pope. Coming to Confluence from Seattle, Washington, less than two years ago, they are developing and operating what they are calling “The Tissue Farm.”
I can’t even bear the thought that there isn’t somebody out there who hasn’t used some kind of device that requires batteries. If one examines the instrument or tool into which one is inserting these long cylindrical devices, he or she will see a “+” or a “-“ in a concave area. I tell you straight. I don’t understand the ins and outs of how these devices work, but I will tell you this: Life, as a whole, will always have its pluses and minuses.
The luminescent trees were unexpected. Atop the 2,800-foot Laurel Summit, the world differed a bit from the one on display just a few hundred feet below around Jennerstown, where there were no crystalline-coated tree limbs.
I’ve come to the conclusion that after enjoying more than 55 years of professional writing, my two favorite punctuations are the period and a comma. The reason for this is simple. They both play into life’s decisions wherever we go and whatever we do. It’s as simple as that. Tied together with ‘freewill,’ one’s whole life’s decisions are based around these three components.
