My Cave My View

MY CAVE, MY VIEWby Gary Torres It is hard to imagine a more tumultuous week on Wall Street.  The markets have moved down faster than the barometer before that last wind storm.  Many have talked about the impacts of Wall Street on Main Street.  The economic pundits have explained this...
MY CAVE, MY VIEWby Gary Torres I have a friend; we’ll just call him Joseph.  He isn’t very old; but I am old and don’t act like it, so who’s to judge?  Neither of us claim maturity or better than average driving skills.  Joseph has parents like most kids do.  His dad isn’t very handy;...
MY CAVE, MY VIEWby Gary Torres The Power of One. This year’s team captains have a daunting task in front of them. Can they make everyONE believe in the Power of One? They don’t have many extra kids; currently, the team only has 30 kids willing to pay the price of two-a-days. They...
MY CAVE, MY VIEWby Gary Torres There are a couple of things that have occurred lately that have me upset. I don’t know a delicate way to say this, so if you are good at visualization, you may want to take off your glasses. In the last month there has been twice that I have left the...
MY CAVE, MY VIEWby Gary Torres I wake up, roll over and look out the window. Based on the white covering of snow, I am trying to remember if I bought all the Christmas presents I needed. But I can’t sort out in my brain why it is the first day of summer vacation, the kids are out of...

Several of you get uncomfortable when I talk about showering, but really, I get some of my best ideas when I am in the shower. So there I am, all lathered up and exfoliating my body in the shower all by myself. I haven’t enjoyed exfoliating like this in some time. I am using an...
I read the headline of the Terri Winder article, “No Cussing Week a Great Idea”. Of course my first thought was, DANG! “Oh, yeah, get real! A week?” But, I like the idea, although I know a few homes that would be pretty darn quiet; maybe an occasional “the” or an infrequent “and” but...
How do you know if you married a teacher? Teachers are teachers because they can’t help it. It certainly isn’t the pay, prestige, and well behaved children we send them. The other day, my wife had her students write about their families. First, you will be glad to know, one of the...
