  • It seems that more and more people are falling into the role of being a caregiver. According to AARP in 2015, 32.2 million Americans currently provide care to adults age 50 and over. This is due to the decrease of deaths from heart disease and stroke, increase in the five year cancer survival rate, and the cost of institutional care is getting more expensive. As the population ages, it is estimated that women could spend more years caring for their aging parents than they did for their children. Even though most caregivers are women, about one-third of caregivers are men.

  • The height of irony is that Christmas, the birth of the Prince of Peace, is full of busyness, exhaustion and stress. People in a rush to celebrate the birth of this Prince seem to be missing the point.

    Most who were originally anticipating the birth of the Prince of Peace missed the point, too. In the days of Caesar Augustus, when Joseph, Mary and their donkey were on their way to Bethlehem, God’s chosen people were waiting for a savior that would squash their enemies. Then there would be peace on earth.

  • In the past, personal property that farmers used as a trade-in on a purchased item was treated as a “like kind” exchange. The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act changed the wording to accommodate only real property as eligible for like kind exchanges. Now we have to treat personal property, such as equipment and livestock, as being sold when a trade occurs.

  • I am sure that all of you have heard the song of “How much is that doggie in the window?” Just to bring back memories here is the first verse:

    How much is that doggie in the window?

    The one with the waggily tail

    How much is that doggie in the window?

    I do hope that doggie’s for sale

    Carroll County 4-H Dog Club met Saturday and I just have to tell this story.
