Andy Sullivan: Against the Grain

Awhile back I wrote a column on earworms.  That sounds like a disease or condition.  If you remember, however, an earworm is a catchy song or tune that runs through a person’s mind.

Patty Craig: A Slice of Time

Like many people. I have a calendar on my desk with a quote for each day. I enjoy reading others’ thoughts about various topics. The following quotes are unconnected, and I have included my thoughts related to each.

Don Locke: Lookin Thru Bifocals

A little of this, that, and the other:

Someone said: Our thoughts are really the only things we’ll ever own.

Fussy By Cheryl Hughes

Did you see this week’s story about the British teen who suffered vision and hearing loss due to his steady diet of junk food?  His symptoms had been showing up for years, but no one thought about checking his diet.  When he was fourteen years old, and complaining of tiredness, a doctor gave him B12 injections.  By age fifteen, he began to lose his hearing and developed trouble with his vision.  His vision continued to get worse, up to the point of being declared legally blind.

Jarrod Jacobs: Ability Does Not Mean Authority

            Authority is something that is needed in every walk of life. When we talk about certain people having the “right” to do this or that, we are saying that they have the authority to do it. For example, only those “duly authorized” can wear a policeman’s badge. In like manner, what about when it comes to the Bible? Should there be a demand for authority in the Scriptures?

PHIL'S PHILOSOPHY By; D.P Kinkade Contributions By; Taylor & Drake Kinkade

NOT A MISTAKE-At times in this column I may have mentioned the fact that I have often felt out of place in this world, all the way up to the point of wondering if I really belong in it at all, or if I might have slipped through the cracks as some kind of cosmic mistake, just biding my time, with no real purpose.

Andy Sullivan: Against the Grain

The idea of an artist covering their favorite song is about as old as time.  What is the most covered song of all time? I went looking for the most recent list.  A list compiled in 2008 from https://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/music/features/the-10-m... revealed The Beatles’ “Eleanor Rigby” to be the most covered song.  I knew surely there had to be an updated, more recent list.  After all, things have changed in 11 years.

Patty Craig: A Slice of Time

In the last few days, I’ve been thinking about pain and its causes. Wikipedia stated, “Pain is a distressing feeling often caused by intense or damaging stimuli. The International Association for the Study of Pain's widely used definition defines pain as ‘an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with actual or potential tissue damage, or described in terms of such damage.’ In medical diagnosis, pain is regarded as a symptom of an underlying condition” (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pain).
