We have started the income tax season. For most of us, the federal tax filing deadline this year is April 15, 2024. Gathering information for tax filing is definitely a chore. I always dread filing, but I usually file in February to get it behind me.

Cheryl Hughes: Wisdom with Age

Sometimes, when I’m home by myself for an extended period of time, I wonder what I would do if Garey passed away before I do.  I would definitely NOT want another relationship.  Life is hard and marriage is even harder.  This doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate my relationship with Garey, but it took a lot of hard work to get to where we are now, and I’m too tired to invest that much effort into anybody else.  No, I would want to continue by myself.  I have family and friends enough for me to be happy and helped.

FRANKFORT – This June marks the 35th anniversary of the Kentucky Supreme Court’s famous Rose V.

I read once that you teach people how to treat you. No one knows this better than my cat, Brother. Brother’s nose seems to be perpetually cold, and he has decided that the only way to warm it is to bury it in the crook of my arm, while sitting on my lap. He purrs loudly as he does this in order to bring to my attention the fact that he is happy with this arrangement. If I notice he is happy, I won’t move from my spot, where he is sitting happily in his spot, and he can continue sitting on me until his nose is warm or he grows weary of sitting on my bony legs.

There were some great commercials in the ‘80’s.  The first of which was on NatGeo’s ‘80’s Top Ten was the mighty mouth of John Moschito.  His motormouth was tailor-made for a decade that had a need for speed.  He says “I taught myself when I was 12 and pretty much was told to shut up for 15 years”.  John Moschito’s world record was 586 spoken words per minute.  To harness John’s talent, FedEx ad

John Kennedy said, “I read a lot. I enjoy reading a lot.” Recently, our winter days have kept me inside, and I’ve been reading, too. Some of the topics I’ve read about include longer days, pancakes, and corduroy. First, curiosity caused me to search for information on the Internet about the lengthening spring days. I found the length of daylight on the winter solstice is about 7 hours, 14 minutes. Then the days begin getting longer. By New Year’s Day, daylight increases to 9 hours and 15 minutes.

Cheryl Hughes: Two Stories from Ireland

Throw-Away Girls Recently, I read SMALL THINGS LIKE THESE, an historical novel based on Ireland’s Magdalen laundries, by Claire Keegan. Until I read this book, I had always seen the Irish people as being constantly victimized by outsiders like the British. It seems, however, that every country has an event in its past that is cause for national shame. The Magdalen laundries and the treatment of the girls housed there is Ireland’s event.These laundries represented more than just a place where people sent clothes to be cleaned.
