This past week, longtime mail carrier Floyd Martin retired from his neighborhood route in Marietta, Ga.

How many of you remember the movie, The Wizard of Oz? Just curious—did any of you see this movie in the theater when it first came out—in the fall of 1939? Awesome! It would be fun to talk about how it felt to see a movie go from black and white to color for the […]

This week I came across an interesting article that listed some of the many religious festivals that go on around the world. For example, in Thailand there is a festival called Songkran.
