The Senior Smuggling Scam

Beware of free vacations, unless you’re prepared for the possibility of an extended stay in a Peruvian prison for unintentionally smuggling 14.5 pounds of cocaine hidden in children’s Bibles. Though it sounds like something out of a film (like Clint Eastwood’s The Mule), it actually happened to two elderly British men last August. It’s one... Read more

Healing is a Process

Greetings one and all… I am writing this reflection as a historic blizzard whips through Colorado. AMAZING to say the very least!
