Facebook follies skate on thin ice

The midnight snack is the most important meal of the day.  No, I did not learn that on Facebook. I learned that from my great-uncle, Luther Martin Protestant Reformation Petersen.

Leap Day should be national holiday

It’s a little known fact that I, not actor Woody Harrelson, was inspiration for the 1992 movie “White Men Can’t Jump.”

Relax like a pioneer

Lost in the blog fog

The great horned owls in the ponderosa pine trees outside my bedroom window were tuning up at 4:30 this morning. They were hooting, "Who, who, Romney or Gingrich?"

Sitting is the new smoking

What if someone told you that 50 percent of all injuries and illnesses in people 50 and older could be eliminated?

Welcome to Indian fall

OK, so it’s not uncommon to see people in La Grande wearing shorts in early January, riding bicycles or playing Frisbee golf on the Eastern Oregon University campus.

Feeling Ducky

The year 1917 got off to a roaring start for the University of Oregon Ducks.

Bob jumped on a stump. He began singing the song of the day, “Play That Funky Music, White Boy” by Wild Cherry.

Our reverie was broken when the farm manager, a Santa Claus lookalike, yelled from across the mountain. He was not in the holiday spirit. His voice could have shattered a canteen.

Just say neigh

Thanksgiving is a great time for getting together with family, feasting, giving thanks for blessings and wearing out the knees in blue jeans pretending to be a horse.

Winds of change

In Cove, around Thanksgiving time, we use a blacksmith’s anvil for a wind chime and an arbor for a wind gauge.

Space hippies race to victory

“Our hippies smell better than your hippies.”

Call off the dogs

Perhaps it is the safety in numbers, or overindulgence of a favorite beverage, but college football Saturdays have turned into a trash talker’s paradise — and not just on the field.

Snow White and the 3 Priuses

I got swept up in a rare group panic earlier this week in La Grande.
