Cheers: To Aledo Florist on East Oak Street. A birthday arrangement ordered by my son in Denver was truly breathtaking and lasted for two weeks. I’ve never seen or received more beautiful, fresher flowers, no matter the cost. Such a delightful change from expensive, inferior quality Internet orders.

hCheers: To the kind, thoughtful person who paid for lunch at Don Julio’s for four senior ladies. It was a wonderful surprise and made our day; it also reminded us that thoughtfulness, kindness and love still exist in our world, and that paying forward does come back. Thanks to a special person.

Jeers: To the government for forcing us to buy energy-saving light bulbs. When we save energy with these high-priced bulbs the electric company charges us a fee because we didn’t use enough electricty. It seems the right hand doesn’t know what the left hand is doing.
