My dog-eared copy of Merriam-Webster’s “Idioms, Metaphors, Similes and Hyperbole” states that “you can’t judge a book by its cover,” a well-known metaphorical … more
I’ve written all sorts of Valentine’s Day columns over the years. In an effort to not repeat myself, I re-read several over the weekend, having pulled them from the archives here at The … more
Traditionally, I consider February my “slow” month—a period of time when more than a few businesses, art galleries, restaurants, theaters and the like, shutter for a few weeks in … more
If you don’t know what a hashtag is, don’t feel bad, you are not alone. “A hashtag is a type of metadata tag used on social networks such as Twitter and other microblogging … more
Of course, I’m referring to the epic ice storm that rained down on the Upper Delaware River region a few days ago, and not the Broadway play written by Eugene O’Neill in 1946. Yep, … more
While many of you are fans of winter and all things associated with it, I’m not that guy. Oh, sure—it can be picture-postcard-pretty here in the Upper Delaware River region, and I do … more
While I tend to refrain from making public declarations of New Year’s resolutions, I do make a list that I keep on the down low. I figure that if I don’t speak it aloud, the inevitable … more
