It’s March, and there is so much to celebrate! As Dr. Seuss, one of my most favorite of authors would say, “You’re off to great places, today is your day! Your mountain is waiting, so get on your way!”

What’s in YOUR wallet? This is a question asked by a popular celebrity on a current TV commercial advertisement. In our house the question happens to have more to do with what’s in your pocket than what’s in your wallet.

Cool & Creative Adult Fiction, Available Now @ JCPL!

When ‘ugh…’ is the best word that you can come up with to describe your feelings about a situation, you know it’s not good. I am referring to Old Man Winter, of course, which could be described with these words: rain, sleet, snow, blow, repeat, all with temperatures that could freeze an Alaskan.

Eat, Read and Be Merry This December With a Good Read From JCPL!

Christmas is for kids. Making lists of their heart’s desires and dreaming of all the presents under the tree consumes them in the month of December. For adults, I believe it’s all about the food. Great meals and sweet treats; that’s what the month of December is about for adults, and it turns out that for once, I am right!

Fact or Fiction? Fiction of Course...New @ JCPL!

Sometimes it’s hard to separate fact from fiction. We’ve heard the term ‘fake news’ frequently of late, which leads us to believe the catch phrase, “Believe only half of what you see and none of what you hear.”

Alas, the weather is turning colder; that means it’s time to break out the long sleeved shirts & sweaters, blue jeans and wear real shoes, not flip flops.

The Cat's Out of the Bag; Here's The Skinny on New Adult Fiction @ JCPL!

Dog tired; I think I’ve wondered about this aloud in one of my articles before, and I still wonder how this phrase came to be, when my own dogs seem to be the exception to this idiom.

It’s September, and it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas; everywhere I go.

Mixed in with the scary Halloween costumes and decorations are glistening lights, colorful garlands and even decorated Christmas trees.
