I am thankful for morning coffee and reflections. It is during this time of daily reflection and journaling that I write a “5 things thankful for today” list. I am not surprised by what consistently makes the grade. In addition to specific references to moments with family, friends and our dog,...
I must admit that while I have worked long and hard to mellow with age, occasionally things get to me that probably shouldn’t. But week after week, month after month and year after year, I jogged past a road near our family’s home in Jacksonville, Florida, that simply ruffled my feathers. That’s...
So, 2020 has been weird, right? But what does it mean for your health insurance?   While there are no major changes in the market, here’s what we feel like you should know:   Explore Your Options.   If you feel like your income will drop in 2021, you may be eligible for a subsidy...
This recipe for Alsatian onion tart was created by Andre Soltner, the chef at Lutece in New York, which opened in 1961 and closed in 2004.    It is a perfect appetizer for the fall table, Thanksgiving or Christmas.     I had the pleasure of dining at Lutece at Christmas 1979 and had this...

I have no idea? Do you?   Since The Daniel Island News goes to press on Tuesday afternoons, as I write this, the voting polls won’t be closing for several hours, which is why when readers receive their copies of this Nov. 5-11 issue, they will find no election results.    But we’re not...
Blue or red? Chances are, by this point in the election cycle, you align yourself with one of these two.     Red vs. blue, Republicans vs. Democrats, conservatives vs. liberals – these labels, these colors are dividing families and silencing friendships.    Post-election, no matter the...
Charleston’s recent high tides were impressive. This week's "Nature Notes" column addresses the science (pages 14-15).  Questions, however, remain. Today, if one questions the dogma, he or she is labeled an "ist" or an "er.” I question some of the dire, man-made global warming assumptions and...
