  • A bold move or just a necessary one?

    For years, I have been telling friends that The Christian Science Monitor is the best newspaper in the United States.

    It's a realization I reached in college while working on a thesis I never completed. I was attempting to compare the coverage of the Iranian hostage crisis of 1979-80 in The New York Times and the Monitor.

    Although I never finished the thesis, my interest in the Monitor grew as a result of the research I did do. I started reading the Monitor off and on for national and international news.

  • Prepare breakfast at night; bake in the morning

    I received a request from my son-in-law for good breakfast recipes.

    Breakfast is his favorite meal. I like it, too.

    When I was growing up, my mom would serve a breakfast meal for dinner once in awhile. Dad and I loved it!

    The first recipe is one of those breakfast casseroles you can put together the night before and bake in the morning. It is quite good.

    I used to make the overnight coffeecake for my dad for breakfast when he would visit. He liked it made with apples, but it's good made with peaches, too.
