Homonyms are words that sound alike yet have different meanings. Now, before you decide that organizing your sock drawer would be a better use of your time, hear me out please. Consider this: you find yourself about to make a trip to the grocery store when you realize that it is almost time for your family [...]

Seriously Christmas

Hailing from the Northeast, my version of a perfect Christmas is having a tree full of decorations and lights, gaily wrapped presents, and our special Christmas Eve dinner.

Family Found

I have tried for many years to learn more about my Polish ancestors. I have scoured the Internet; googled everything I could think of; pored through the Ellis Island website, etc. I have found lots of public records for both maternal and paternal sides of the family. In those respects I have considered myself lucky. [...]

The Price of Progress in TV Land

   When I was born, television was something new and exciting. It was a large box with a screen that was housed in a piece of furniture. In the back of the screen was a forest of tubes and connectors that 'caught' the signal and translated them into a picture for our viewing pleasure.    [...]
