Connor Cooks Breakfast Tacos
7/30/2020 3:09:54 PM

I love tacos. I love them for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Heck, they are even great for a quick snack. Tacos are a tried-and-true meal and will satisfy you rain or shine, or any day that ends in Y. If you want to get your day off to a great start, there are few options as good as a Breakfast Taco. I make mine different ways depending on what I have in the fridge. On this particular day I had leftover pinto beans that I had made from scratch the day before. I paired them with a scrambled egg and cheese, finished off with Pico de Gallo and pickled red cabbage. I will walk you through it all....

Lessons from Geese: Standing by each other in difficult times
7/30/2020 2:59:51 PM

By Marian Wright Edelman FOUNDER AND PRESIDENT EMERITA   Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we human beings had as much sense of community as geese? During an Outward Bound experience in Maine, participants read these lessons we humans can learn from geese that bear repeating, considering and sharing in these trying times.   Lessons from Geese   Fact 1: As each goose flaps its wings it creates an “uplift” for the birds that follow. By flying in a “V” formation, the whole flock adds 71 percent greater flying range than if each bird...

Savvy Senior - Can I stop Social Security if I go back to work?
7/30/2020 2:51:28 PM

Dear Savvy Senior, I lost my job last month because of the coronavirus crisis. With little savings, I’ve been thinking about starting my Social Security benefits early to help me get by. But my question is, if I find a new job can I stop my Social Security benefits and restart them at a later date so they can continue to grow?    —Almost 63   Dear Almost, Yes, there are actually two ways you can stop your Social Security retirement benefits (once you’ve started collecting them) and restart them at a later date, which would boost your benefits....

It’s my birthday I’ll lie if I want to
7/30/2020 2:49:44 PM

Dr. James L. Snyder   I’m not a proponent of lying. I don't like it when people lie. If they lie once, how do you know they're not lying again? Lately, I've been thinking about what the definition of a lie really is. Is there some time when telling a lie is the best to do? And, is every lie a non-truth? The reason I've been having these thoughts is that I just celebrated my birthday. It always sneaks up on me, and I'm not sure why because it happens every year. It was like when I was in school, we always had a test on Friday, and it always...

America v America; Part IV of III

‘…why, I had no idea you could stack Talking Points that high’ By L Ron Brooks   ‘MURCA—In the last few weeks we’ve discussed how we’ve arrived here as a society; ‘here’ being utterly dysfunctional and teetering on the brink of DON’T LOOK INTO THE ABYSS!   We’ve talked about being scared to death of the upcoming election. Note to younger readers: This is a brand-new Thing. One of you history majors will probably get to name it for posterity (unless there’s already a word for the phenomenon in...

Savvy Senior - Stretching Tips to Help Seniors Gain Flexibility and Reduce Pain
7/23/2020 3:42:47 PM

Dear Savvy Senior, Can you offer some good stretching tips for seniors who are staying home during the pandemic? I’ve gotten so stiff and achy in recent years that I have a hard time doing basic activities like bending over to tie my shoes. Stiff as a Board   Dear Stiff, Of all possible exercises, stretching tends to be the most neglected, yet nothing is more vital to keeping an aging body limber and injury free. As we age, our muscles naturally lose their elasticity if you’re not active, which can make common day-to-day activities like reaching down to tie...

If I had a nickel for every blunder I made…
7/23/2020 3:41:35 PM

Dr. James L. Snyder   I am not very agile when it comes to finances. Do not get me wrong, I know how to spend money; it is just that I do not know how to save money. Somewhere I lost my little piggy bank. One of my father's favorite quotes was, "A penny saved is a penny earned." It never made sense to me, but my father knew how to save money. On the other side, he was not very agile when it came to spending money especially on me. My whole life has never been focused on making money. For me, the outdoor was busier than the indoor with money. I must confess my...

America v America; Part II Mr. Rogers had the right answer all along; who knew?
7/15/2020 6:57:38 PM

By L Ron Brooks   Last week I doodled up a brief history of “How we got here.” [ https://tinyurl.com/ybppcbp3 ] ‘Here’ being what feels like the waiting room of the apocalypse. Last week’s one-sentence takeaway was “The Outrage Machine makes too much money, for too many people, to be tampered with.” Our current dystopia is the result of business-models run amuck with no guiding hand to make sure anybody plays fair, with the wholly predictable result that no one plays by the rules anymore. It’s the Wild West again and The Truth has...

Savvy Senior - What happens if you die without a will?
7/15/2020 6:56:36 PM

Dear Savvy Senior, What happens to a person’s possessions if they die without a will? I’m almost 60 years old and have never gotten around to making one, but the coronavirus crisis has made it a priority. Will-less Willie   Dear Willie, The coronavirus crisis has lit a fire under many Americans when it comes to getting their affairs in older. Currently, fewer than half of American adults have prepared a will or living trust. If you die without a will, the state you reside in will determine what happens to your assets. Every state has intestacy laws in place...

Voting for our future
7/15/2020 6:44:26 PM

By Marian Wright Edelman FOUNDER AND PRESIDENT EMERITA   Earlier this month the Supreme Court struck yet another blow to voting rights when it blocked an order that would have made it easier for Alabama citizens to vote safely in the middle of the pandemic by easing some restrictions before the state’s July 14th primary run-off election. Alabama’s current restrictions for absentee voting require voters to submit a copy of photo identification and obtain the signatures of two adult witnesses or a notary public before returning their ballot. In June, a U.S. district...
