    HARMON: The ‘next level’ of losing your mind

    There are three things I must have whenever I leave the castle. One would be Mr. Cellphone, then Mrs. Wallet (wife controls the money), and finally, Mr. Keys. Losing any one of these guys brings on stress and we’ve got enough of that around here. One of the dogs thinks the carpet is her personal...

    HARMON: Surviving the bike ride

    Once in a while I see these signs around southern towns that say, “Bicycle friendly” or “Bicycle community,” or something of that sort. I’ve seen them in Gainesville, Florida, which has a bike trail that takes you all through Gainesville proper with a safe secure...

    HARMON: A country for any man?

    There was a movie out a few years ago starring Tommy Lee Jones, called, “No Country for Old Men.” I suppose the title came from the fact that the particular part of the country in which the movie took place, the southern border, had become a rough place to live and old folks needed...

    HARMON: Big show at the ‘Big House’

    It’s that time of year, sometimes an upper, sometimes a downer, depending on how I look at it. I’ve been known to ruin a few holidays but, sometimes it can’t be helped.

    HARMON: Oh so ‘simple’

    I have one comment about Ferguson and then I want to be on to other things. After three months of prepping “we the people,” the media got exactly what it wanted in the form of news, chaos, fires and police against civilians. We were manipulated into watching as though the ball was ...

    HARMON: It’s all about them

    A funny thing happened the other day. I was sitting in my favorite chair with my new favorite guy on my lap, the grandson, and happened to catch us both looking back from a mirror. He looked like I did 67 years ago -- and with my reading glasses down on my nose -- I looked a lot like my grandfather...

    HARMON: Dentists love Halloween

    Ah, it’s that time of year again. A time when we celebrate the changing of the leaves, brisk morning walks, college football and, of course, Halloween, or “The Dentists’ Dilemma,” (to pull or not to pull, that is the question).
