We did it to ourselves. We may have had fun doing it, but the privilege is gone. We blew up too much stuff, started too many fires, hurt ourselves and others to a degree that the greater society stepped in and has taken away most of the fun! For most of us, except for community displays, the Fourth of July is fireworks-free.
Thursday morning on the Morning News with Dave & Lance we talked a bit about soccer and the world cup craziness. We tried to find soccer’s appeal and we certainly found its faults as a spectator sport.
Show of hands—who’s frustrated by Obamacare. I thought so. Don’t you feel like we were all left out of the process? Wouldn’t it be nice if somehow we had a voice in how health care is administered in the Yakima Valley?
I have had a lifelong interest in psychology -- even got a degree in it after the Army as I tried to figure out myself and others around me. Psychologists will most often say we are in control of our attitudes. Self-help experts will say the one thing in that is in our control during life’s ups and downs is our choice to be positive.

It’s the first full week of summer and all across the Yakima Valley the grills and bar-b-ques are heating up! Steaks, burgers, hot dogs, pork chops and fabulous fish dinners are cooking to perfection. What’s that? What about the vegetables? Good question. We’ll cook some veggies but they won’t be the main course—just ask the Austrians why!
The kids get a summer vacation, how about you? If you do get vacation time, do you use it -- all of it? No? Welcome aboard, fellow workaholics! A survey confirms that very few Americans with paid time off took all of their vacation days last year.
It’s summertime and the living is, well in the top 10 percent as far as summer road trips are concerned. In fact, the folks at WalletHub say Washington is the fifth-best vacation state based on a formula including driving costs, lodging prices, traffic safety, weather and, of course, fun attractions for everyone. Oregon came in at No. 1.
