  • Whenever I am out in public, I try conducting myself with the greatest of care knowing that people are watching. The thing that bothers me the most is that many people have never mastered the fine art of how to dress in public.
    Some people have never been taught how to dress, let alone how to dress in public. Whenever I go to the mall, and believe me it is as seldom as possible, I cannot help noticing some of these people.

    For the past 19 years, Curry Andrews of Fairfield Village has walked the yearly fund-raising course for what has been his favorite charity, The March of Dimes.
    This year will be no different except that Curry will be one year older as he completes the six-mile course for what is being called the March for Babies.
    As was the case last year, the event will be held on Saturday, April 28, at Marjorie Harris Carr Cross Florida Greenway at 4255 S.E. 58th Ave. Registration is at 7 a.m. with the walk/run to begin at 8 a.m.

    Things were really “hopping” on Saturday, April 7 when Joy Evangelical Lutheran Church held its first annual Easter Egg Hunt.  This event was attended by about 70 children, mainly from the Upward Soccer league and their siblings.
    The Easter Bunny hid 500 plastic eggs filled with goodies around the church building and soccer fields.  Pastor Edward Holloway, Jr. hid a special “golden egg” containing a nice monetary prize.  There was a very happy winner of this golden egg.

    On Thursday, March 8, an adventuresome group from Joy Lutheran Church attended the Horses In The Sun (HITS) competition held at the Post Time Farm on U.S. 27. From all accounts, this group of 19 members thought the day was a HIT. It was a beautiful sunny day and the horses were impressive, graceful “jumpers.” Twenty three horses competed for the $25,000 prize. There were three finalists and the successful winner was a 16 year old young man who had two perfect rounds.

  • Tomorrow is St. Patrick’s Day, a holiday first celebrated in 1737 by Irish immigrants in Boston. Now almost everyone celebrates by wearing green, being honorary Irish, drinking green beer, and eating corned beef and cabbage.
    The Irish can be proud; going green the year around has now become a worldwide objective. In honor of St. Patty, Pun Alley gets painted green and has some Irish fun.

  • March madness is coming. College men’s basketball playoffs involving 68 teams will play in a single-elimination tournament to determine the national champion. Scheduled to begin on March 13, it will conclude with the championship game on April 2 at the Superdome in New Orleans.
    With the ball bouncing down Pun Alley we hope to score a few points with punny stuff that didn’t hit the basket.

    Coaching psychosis

  • Whenever somebody mentions the word “free” in my presence my right eye turns a vivid jaundice. It is not that I have anything against the word free; just the person who is trying to use it to gain some kind of an advantage over me. I know anybody employing this mono-verbiage, is hiding some very long strings.

  • It is a story that dates back 2500 years. Although part of the Hebrew Bible, the story does not mention the name of God even once. There are speculations that the story did not exist; still the story of Queen Esther holds a fascination for Jews and feminists because of its timeless teachings. And a woman is the heroine of the day.

  • The Iditarod Sled Dog Race starts tomorrow. It takes mushers from Anchorage to Nome, Alaska. Nearly 1,000 whining, drooling dogs are a part of the opening ceremony; somewhat like the Miss Universe Pageant. For the first time in its history mushers were tested for alcohol and drugs. Officials say no one has been disqualified for performance enhancers, although three mushers have tested positive for Alpo.
    The rewards are incredible. The winning musher gets thousands of dollars in endorsements. The winning huskies each get a biscuit.
