Just What the Doctor Ordered

A figure of speech that we’re all familiar with is the saying “Just what the doctor ordered.” After we’ve been out in the yard mowing and trimming on a hot Saturday afternoon, we might sit down on the porch, drink a tall glass of iced tea and declare, “That’s just what the doctor ordered!” Or after a big Sunday dinner at Grandma’s served with fried chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy, and a big slice of Grandma’s Ultimate Decadent Double Fudge Chocolate Carmel Torte Cake washed down with a big glass of milk we sigh in unison, “Just what the doctor ordered.” The statement hints that this is a cure that a physician has prescribed and it means that it was exactly what we needed at that particular time.

After the Celebration
Updated: July 08, 2015 - 10:44 am

I can’t help but love the Fourth of July. What a wonderful holiday; what a day of celebration! The day is set aside to commemorate the founding of our great nation. At the same time, we can honor all those who have served in the Armed Forces — those who have served and those who have sacrificed. And in the current environment, we should even honor the dedicated men and women who serve in Law Enforcement and Emergency Services — our First Responders.

An Enigma
Posted: June 24, 2015

What is an enigma? After the end of World War I, German engineer Arthur Scherbius invented an electro-mechanical cipher device that was call the Enigma Machine. The invention could encrypt a message to be sent and decrypt the message on the other end after it had been received. The device was used to keep correspondence secret. It was successfully used for many years by commercial companies, but its greatest use was by the German military in the years leading up to and into World War II.

Secrets to Success
Posted: June 17, 2015

All of us enjoy success and despise failure. But success comes in many forms. To the grade school student, success may be that sense of accomplishment when he learns to tie his own shoelaces. For a high school athlete, success might come in the form of a college recruiter inviting her to play on their basketball team.
