A number of years ago I lived and worked in a state where, in order to cover a financial shortfall, the state legislature decided to borrow the needed funds from the teachers’ retirement system.
Unfortunately, the legislature never got around to replacing what it borrowed resulting not only in the loss of that amount, but any interest it could have accrued either by itself, or from being part of the account funds.
Appetizers or Hors d’Oeuvres have always been a popular treat—especially around holiday time. The challenge has become how to stimulate our guests’ appetites without replacing dinner with snacks that are so good and tasty that dinner has become less than it is meant to be—a memorable repast til next year.

We have sort of left that area where summer turns into autumn, did a few weeks of autumn, and now we're in that period where Old Man Winter sort of has autumn around the neck and is slapping it repeatedly. Autumn will rally today and tomorrow, but Winter is preparing the finishing move.
The news last week that a convicted sex offender was arrested lurking near the Teaticket School is a stark and troubling reminder of how much our society – and our community – has changed.
