Select the right pumpkin for cooking

The most popular use of pumpkins is for decoration as jack-o'-lanterns. When selecting a pumpkin for cooking, the best selection is a "pie pumpkin" or "sweet pumpkin."

Believing my own eyes and ears is getting ever harder

It's getting to the point that I don't believe my own eyes or trust what my ears hear. Sometimes it feels like I'm starring in the old movie, "Gas Light," where the world is conspiring to make me think I'm crazy.

‘Wookiee’ speaks to the inner Jedi in all of us

Recently, my husband and I were watching a documentary about video game players who partake in the online role-playing game, "World of Warcraft." It gives people the chance to take a break from the mundane world to slay monsters, quest for treasure, and explore a majestic fantasy realm (for the fee of about $16 a month).
