More than once I’ve heard the saying, “The best laid plans of mice and men often go astray.” For those who want to get technical it is based on a Robert Burns poem “To a Mouse” that is originally, “The best-laid schemes of mice and men, Go oft awry.” Awry is a good word for the last few days.

We missed Easter this year. Well, most of it. My family of four (my husband, John, daughters Anna, age 11, and Ellen, age 9, and myself) recently spent a week in Florida with my brother-in-law and sister-in-law’s family of five. They have three kiddos—ages 7, 5, and 3, and one more on the way....

Here’s a scary story from the field of science: experiments at the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel have successfully grown mouse embryos inside an artificial uterus. Wait! What? The embryos looked perfectly normal, according to the study published in the journal Nature. All their organs...
I wanted a unicycle. I was 10 years old and wanted nothing else—just a unicycle. I begged for one for my birthday. Begged. I cut a picture of one out of a magazine and dreamed of riding the darn thing around my driveway. I would have been so cool. But, instead, I got a pogo stick. My parents...

This month marks one year that the world has been dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic.
