I’ve seen it multiple times, but it never fails to amaze me just how fragile our lives, as well as all the stuff of our lives, really are. One of the summer storms bouncing around the Valley at this time of year brought wind and rain ripping through our church campus. It tore up trees and threw around the roof tiles like a 2 year old in full tantrum mode. The storm was all over and done in the space of about 10 minutes, yet restoring some semblance of order took several days. The emotional impact of the scene of devastation, and the physical work also took its toll, even as we give thanks that no one was injured.
If asked the difference between jackrabbits and hares, would you know the answer? I have a gigantic hint for you; they both belong to the lagomorph order of mammals.

A storm that rolled through the East Valley on Sunday left its mark in a number of ways.

I was told some decades ago that my life would pass like the seasons of the year. With life-expectancy hovering at roughly around eighty years, my wise counselor said that we can divide our lives into four seasons of twenty years each. The first twenty years of life is spring. Life is new and young. Flowers bloom and the grass is green. Everything is just beginning — childhood, adolescence, young adulthood. In the spring we begin to plant the seeds that in time will grow, bloom, and eventually be harvested. The entire year — all other seasons — lay out before us, and we want to get to them as quickly as we can.
“Americans have been complaining for years that both sides in Washington don’t listen to them. Republicans in Virginia have shown they’re willing to do something about it. Now the question is, are Democrats also willing to do something about it?”

Well, I never thought I'd ever be so tall in my life. The weather really is nice up here! To start off this speech, I'd like to tell a joke that's near and dear to my heart. I apologize in advance if you get S.I.C because of it. About 600 high school graduates walk into a bar. The bartender says "look, I'm sorry but we can't serve high school graduates here," to which the high school graduates reply, "you better serve us or we'll BASH-a your head open" (hopefully some people feel bad for me and laugh after this joke).
ORLANDO, Fla. — It costs close to $100 a person to enter the gates of the Magic Kingdom or board the Hogwarts Express. But there are plenty of things to do in the Orlando area that are free, and none of them has anything to do with theme parks.

When the weather heats up, our thoughts to turn to cool, fruity concoctions fitting for pool season. Ben & Jack’s Steakhouse reads our minds with its refreshing Kiwi Twister, which, coincidentally, pairs will with this weekend’s Mother’s Day menus and festivities. The blend of vodkas, Chambord and orange juice costs $12.95, or $7 during happy hour. Here’s how to shake one up at home:
As an Arizona native, I have a love for the desert that just comes naturally. But there is something inside of me that loves greenery, water, colorful flowers and shade. I cannot always hop in the car and drive up north so, I am comforted by the fact that just 30 minutes east of Apache Junction lies the 100-acre Boyce Thompson Arboretum State Park, which boasts the best of the desert as well as many non-native plants.
