Glazer: Finding caregivers can come at a price

My mother-in-law, Claire, is determined to spend the rest of her days on Long Island. While most of the family migrated south to Georgia and Florida, she remained in her house on Peconic Bay.

I've always loved Halloween.

Glazer: Warning: Hamsters won’t enable you to fly

I think I was about 9 when I got my first hamster.

Glazer: Pass along a love for reading at Readathon

I grew up in a family that loved to read. We received the Atlanta Constitution in the morning and the Daily Times in the afternoon. For decades my parents maintained subscriptions to Time, Reader's Digest, National Geographic, Life and Look Magazines.

When I was 6, they dug deep into their pockets to buy a set of World Book encyclopedias. When my daughter started school I dug equally deep to buy a home computer. The more things change, the more they stay the same.

Glazer: Live theater is worth your time and money

There's something so special about experiencing live theater, sitting in a darkened auditorium as living, breathing actors perform at their very best. Tickets to performances at venues like Atlanta's Fox Theatre can often rival prices on Broadway.

Sometimes it's worth every penny, like this October when "Wicked" comes to town. But as a regular activity for my family of four, the Fox is way above our pay grade. That's OK, though. There's wonderful theater to be experienced right in our hometown, at local high schools and universities.

Glazer: Logged on for life; PC keeps links to the past

I'm convinced in each life there are a handful of milestones, junctures at which the decisions we make totally change the direction of our future. Some might be the choice of a trade or college major, the selection of a spouse (both first and subsequent in some cases), electing to have children or not and the adoption of a moral/religious philosophy or the failure to do so.

Glazer: Bigfoot, my foot: I’m hunting Little People

Like Fox Mulder, I want to believe.

Glazer: Being crafty just a work in progress

This morning I put a newspaper clipping about my daughter in the family scrapbook. Actually, scrapbook is a pretty glorified title for what we have. It's really just a binder that contains any piece of newsprint with the name of one of the Glazers on it. It has always been my intention to someday organize it into volumes dedicated to each family member.

Glazer: Remembering two souls who inspired life, laughs

The other morning I woke up early, splashed awake by a wave of sadness. At first I couldn't identify where the feeling originated.

Glazer: Cards for the incarcerated send tough love messages

Half a lifetime ago I worked as a parole officer. One of my duties was to interview the families of prospective parolees. I'd get information for a narrative about the inmate's personal life, their background, education, community support and postrelease plans.

Glazer: Pesky passwords and a long-forgotten pet

One recent morning, I tried to log on to my online banking account. I needed to check my balance since the dryer had suddenly decided to stop drying and I wasn't sure if I had enough in the account to cover the repair bill.

Glazer: School saga could actually be worse

To distract myself from all of the drama unfolding around the Gainesville City School Board, I turned my jaundiced eye toward Clayton County. I have no vested interests in Clayton County. I don't know anyone in or with the school system there. I've never lived or worked there. Heck, I'm not even absolutely sure if I've ever been there except to possibly drive through on the Interstate.

Glazer: The TV show you don’t want to watch at dinner

When I first read the press release, I thought it was a late April Fool's Day hoax.

Glazer: Once a sweetheart, now a celebrity thief

Poor Lindsay Lohan just can't catch a break.

Glazer: Mom’s advice includes home cures, common sense

Most moms are a repository of knowledge, both the book and folklore variety. Lately, it seems every time I open my mouth out comes my mother's voice. After all, she gave me some of the best advice I've ever received and now that I'm a parent, it's time to pass it on.

Glazer: Is it better to confront hatred or ignore it?

It was around 1989 when some permutation of the Ku Klux Klan and a motley group of affiliated miscreants applied for and was - as is their right - given permission to demonstrate in Gainesville. At the time my business was located in the Jackson Building on downtown's Washington Street.
