How can I talk about the naughty word without spelling it? I would like to discuss “That Word,” that four letter-word that begins with an F. It has moved into our daily life really without much notice and it is also printed in the dictionary on my desk, which was printed back in 2002. I…

The website, https://will-law.org/school-scorecard, summarizes information about the schools throughout the USA which shows the “Spending per Student,” “DPI Report Card Rating, “% Change in Spending,” Community % Proficiency,” “Community Student Enrollment,” ACT Scores, and enrollment categories.” …

Are we living a dream or a nightmare? I wish that I could look into the future to 2122 and see what have we become? Will we be a nation of free individuals with choice over everything in our lives? Or will we be loaded down with government rules and regulations? I have heard many…

Glenhaven Happenings – 4-6-22

March 26th-April 1st, 2022 Finally April! Finally some sun and warmth after a very long week of below average temps and gloomy skies (not to mention the snow and ice; really, do NOT mention it).  Our Monday started as usual: exercise and coffee time.
