While the nation's farmers leap into spring planting, this office is reluctantly digging through the winter drifts of stories gone undone.

I have spent nearly nine years teaching my children that patience is a virtue (although sadly, not one of mine) and that there are no stupid questions.

Warmed by the sun, my bare arms feel free in the fresh spring air, and the heat that builds in my van reminds me of warmer days ahead.

I made up my mind years ago that I'd probably never own a new car. It's not that I would mind flaunting its perks as I drive around, but the final answer for the math behind a new vehicle purchase is too impractical for my style, even if I could afford one.

"Hello, is your refrigerator running? Well, you better catch it before it gets out the door!" "Hello, do you have Prince William in a can? Well, you better let him out before he suffocates!" "Do you have your TV on? Well, how does it fit?" Ah, the good old prankster kid calls - this is a game from a fading era.
