Roland Raabe, 2 1/2, is as active as every child his age. He loves puzzles, cartoons, jaunts outside with his stroller, visits from family and his swing. Especially his swing. Whether its outdoors at the park or in the living room at home, Roland likes to center his day on swinging.

  • It is of spring poets comingle. All on the relent of winter, as northerners understand.  When trills the redwing and heralds the sandhill, all is poetry. All the flowers, the pollen, the bird song. Poets are not known to verse about the weight limits on town roads, the gore of these same where sodden spring does her best to prove the earth is loquacious.

  • You deserve a break today is not just an old slogan from a fast food chain. You really do deserve a break, and you should make sure you regularly schedule time for yourself. I never used to, and one summer it put me in a hospital. For real.


  • For a moment, set aside the joy of seeing your crocuses and daffodils bloom. Overlook all the pruning and yard chores a new season brings. Instead, as you survey your landscape, look for early signs of plant disease and winter injury. 


  • “If it weren’t for bad luck, I’d have no luck at all.” That line has been memorialized as a book title, as lyrics in a song and as part of the old TV show, “Hee Haw.” You might remember Buck Owens and Roy Clark lamenting, “Gloom, despair, and agony on me, Deep, dark depression, excessive misery. If it weren’t for bad luck, I’d have no luck at all, Gloom, despair, and agony on me.”
