Being old fashioned is not all that bad

I am old, or at least old fashioned – just ask our kids. They are not getting any argument from me on this. In fact, I almost like the title. The key word there is ALMOST. Perhaps the better terminology would be I have accepted it. And since I’ve come to terms with it, then everybody else sh…

Random thoughts on winter, the Olympics and hockey
