  I love to cook chili, baked beans, lasagna and a variety of other dishes. Last week I concocted my uniquely fashioned baked bean dish. I think the wonderful and therapeutic act of ingredient preparation and cooking backfired - literally. It was not the chopping of the garlic clove (1/2 in 1/8...
   The Republican tax bill is finally here. For the stock market, the biggest treat is a corporate tax cut from 35% to 20%. That can’t possibly be bad for the stock market, at least over the short-term. But I’m going to try to temper your excitement just a little.     I’m not convinced this bill...
  I awoke early one morning, the heat from my 30-pound white and orange cat permeating my back, my “baby” of 15 years gently snoring.   What I discovered when I researched snoring was an acronym not found on the pages of any paper or on any website: SNOR. SNOR is short for Sympathetic Nasal...
  Perhaps it is for the younger generations to decide the ultimate fate of Columbus Day, newspapers, the NFL, police shootings, space travel, military foreign intervention, immigration, Communism (Part 2) and a myriad of other juicy topics.

  Even the best strategy for dealing with North Korea could be bad news for the stock market and economy. Of course, the worst strategy is even scarier. If we somehow end up in a fight with North Korea, millions of people in South Korea could be killed. According to the NY Times, North Korea could...
