I want to thank the City of Charleston Fire Department on Daniel Island for their very kind effort to help me the other day. Somehow I locked my car door with my purse inside. They have a special tool that unlocks the door, but it did not work and they spent a half hour trying. Finally, they drove...
Almost all virtual assistant apps – Siri, Alexa, Cortana, GPS in your car, and more – communicate with you in a female voice. Not that I’m opposed to that in any way. No, sir…I mean no ma’am. The female voice has obviously been tested by the companies that produce these gadgets. The voice is...

I’m writing this from heaven Where I dwell with God above Where there’s no more tears or sadness There is just eternal love Please do not be unhappy Just because I am out of sight Remember that I’m...
EDITOR’S NOTE: It is the policy of The Daniel Island News not to print letters to the editor regarding current political candidates in the last issue prior to an election, which in this case would be our Nov. 1 edition, as there will not be an opportunity to print responses before the election....
For the most part, I am a vegetarian. Then why, you might ask, does my house smell like bacon? The reason is a 10 pound, 10-week old fur baby named Ivy. She is an Aussiedoodle – her mother, Penny, is an Australian shepherd and her father, Jackpot, is a poodle. This is the breed (ish) that my...
Did you watch “The Americans”? I was late to the party and had to binge watch all six seasons; it was worth every second.
