Ah, it’s Christmastime again! It really is a great time of year full of lights, gift giving, carols, family and the story of Jesus’s birth. Unfortunately, it is also the time of short tempers, political controversy and wondering if the gift card rack is in the same place it was last year… So, how do

What do you think of when you hear the word dragon? That mythical reptile with so much potential. The one breathing fire in The Hobbit, maybe? What does your mind jump to when you imagine it guarding a treasure trove inside a dark cave? Does it make you want to risk it all for the

108 years. That’s how long it has been since the Chicago Cubs won the world series…until last night. WOW! I can’t imagine how they must be feeling. My great grandparents would have been watching the last time Chicago won it all. Question: When was the last time that you won it all? I don’t mean
