Summer vacations that teach a lot

My finest memory from childhood is sailing a kayak my clever brother had made out of plywood and canvas. The sailing adventure was on a lake in Glacier National Park. The wind was good, my beloved dog was tucked between my knees for ballast, and I scooted over the water like a rocket – or so it seemed to an 11 year old. I have a black and white photo of that event (the world was black and white in those days), and I cherish it greatly even though it's faded.

A sad situation

I believe the picture that ran with Saturday's Journal story, "Shelters overrun with feral kittens," was probably the cutest animal photo we have ever published. The story that accompanied the photo, however, was also one of the saddest animal stories we have ever published.

Eggs from near and far

To me, there's nothing like a breakfast that involves an egg. That dose of protein, I think, helps me last at work until noon or even beyond the lunch hour if need be.

Back in 2006, Nintendo obtained a license to print money - an arm-waving, flail-centric, world-changing license to print money.

Grow up national media

Most days I am proud to be a member of the media. I believe that newspapers - and other forms of news media - are essential to a healthy democracy. But sometimes the actions of my colleagues make me want to hide my head in the sand and deny that I ever shared the same profession.

A threat to the world’s wheat

If you like eating hotcakes or bread (or my own personal favorite, huckleberry muffins), you might want to pay attention to a problem that's looming over wheat worldwide. It's a new type of "stem rust" caused by a fungus that cripples wheat plants.

The game of life

A few years ago when I was a full-time sports reporter, I wrote a column extolling the virtues of sports movies. Over the holiday weekend, I had the opportunity to view another movie that not only peaked my interest in a sport I had otherwise not given two thoughts about, but also renewed my faith in humanity.

Ready to shop

I love Trader Joe's. I love their guacamole hummus. I love their fancy cheeses. I love their faux-Polynesian flair.
