To this conclusion I have come: the most deadly years of our lives are the ages of 16 to 21. Those years give us a headiness that comes from new freedom - a driver's license - and the passing of the torch from strict childhood rules to more trust, different restraints and relaxed curfews.

Not a single person in my breakfast club has mentioned the "blood moon." And that includes me, until now. I wasn't really sure what it was even though my emails from some preacher have hammered me recently with a "better beware" kind of verbiage.

What are the three scariest words of the English language? On a serious note, it could be, "You have…(fill in the blank)." The "blank" could most likely be the scariest word of all. For my sister it was "cancer." I was in her doctor's office on the day we were told that she had a very slim chance of survival. She died a couple months later on my father's birthday.

Day 37 (Tuesday, April 20, 2010): With only four days remaining in this year's session, we get down to business today by passing the amended FY 2010 budget that runs through June 30 of this year.
