    Years ago, when I switched from using a Windows computer to using an Apple, I ran into some difficulty related to the fact that some of the software I used regularly only worked on Windows. The solution I found to this problem involved a program called “Boot Camp.” Boot Camp allows a Macintosh computer to restart running windows. So, my computer could run two different operating systems. One minute it was a Mac, the next it could be a PC. However, if I wanted to run my new programs, I had to step away from the Windows side of my computer. Wit...

    I didn’t find the Christmas spirit till the week of Christmas, so I’m disappointed to find Christmas is over. So, I pondered the idea of celebrating Christmas all year. What would it be like? What would I do to remind myself of the glory of Christmas? I came up with eight. 1. Think about Jesus in a real and personal way daily which is why Christmas is so special. The music, the stories, and the reality of God as one of us. 2. Forgive quickly—nothing takes away the spirit of Christmas like carrying a grudge. Nothing ruins a day, a week, a month...

    I would like to comment on the Big Sandy Community and some updates they are doing to the infrastructure. I think it is great that the community is getting behind the new swimming pool. This is a great plan, but it applies to a certain group of people. I’m not against the pool, but I think Big Sandy should also add to their plan additional recreational opportunities. The activity I’m speaking of is Pickleball. This is one of the nations fastest growing sports. People from grade school to 80 - 90 year old people can play. Where I play pic...
