Jackie Hope: Spring cleaning: One project inevitably leads to another
Show of hands, people. Who has been busy with spring cleaning? Spring cleaning is overrated. And did you know it can become habit-forming? Spring cleaning starts harmlessly enough. You think you see your Labradoodle hiding in the close. Instead it turns out to be a dust bunny. So...

Hope: The 39 Steps
How many steps are there, going down into your basement? Twelve? And how many steps into your attic? Fifteen? What if there were 39 steps? Well, we know where you can find 39 steps. Exactly 39 steps. Because this weekend the Odd Fellows’ Sneak Pique Productions is staging “The...

T-shirts evolve to rude sayings and bad ideas
Remember when T-shirts didn’t shout rude things at you? Or when tees proclaimed nothing more than you were cheering for your high school team? Or had nothing on the front except a little tiny pocket, for your transistorized radio? That was way back in the last century. A simpler...

Hope: A brief history of Girl Scout Cookies
Know what comes in March? Yeah, St. Patrick’s Day, and sometimes Easter. But know what else? Girl Scout Cookies! Who doesn’t love Girl Scout Cookies? OK, so selling them was not the most fun thing to do. Especially when your mom was a Girl Scout leader and so you lost...

Hope: ‘Pls send help … for a mere $10,000’
Spam I am. Have you opened your spam box lately? No, not talking about a tin of that yummy hammy stuff. Even though opening a container of Spam is an exciting occasion, right up there with opening a fresh jar of extra-crunchy peanut butter. Both of those delicacies are great...

Traditions surrounding Pancake Tuesday
Aren’t pancakes just about the perfect food? They’re made of, like, eggs and milk and, uh, and pancakey stuff. They get fried up in butter. Hold it. Don’t say you are one of those people who thinks Pam spray is a proper griddle greaser. Pam is the name of my buddy, not my...

Jackie Hope: Put it on repeat
Did you see your shadow yesterday? OK, the real prognosticator, Phil the Groundhog, lives in Punxsutawney, Pa., and is a national celeb. Phil gets his 15 minutes of fame once a year, every year. Except in the movie “Groundhog Day.” Phil gets his 15 minutes of fame over and over...

Jackie Hope: Who’s driving the Mystery Machine?
Who wrote the best mystery stories you’ve ever read? Mickey Spillane? Agatha Christie? The guy who invented “5-Minute Mysteries?” Remember those 5-minute quickie mysteries? The ones the big kids at church camp always tried to stump the little kids with? You’d get 5 minutes...

Jackie Hope: ‘Empire’ state of mind
We know this guy. And he just returned from The Great American Railroad Trek. Epic. Let’s call him Lawyer J. Because he’s a lawyer, and because there is a J in his name. And because it makes him sound real cool, and all, like Will Smith in the “Men in Black” movie series. While...

Jackie Hope: What’s your resolution?
Who’s resolving to lose weight in 2015? C’mon, you might as well own it, because you know you are thinking about it. Not only Wiki and a 2013 Harris poll, but also a www.us.gov website cite losing weight as our most popular New Year’s resolution. Interestingly enough, the...

Jackie Hope: Winter arrives at 4:03 p.m.
Have you noticed the sun has gone south for the winter? There are, like, only 15 minutes of daylight outside these days. And those minutes always seem to drop by between 1-1:15 each afternoon. So when you take your after-lunch nap, you’re gonna miss the entire day. Oh, you don’t...

Live from downtown Dickinson, it’s Sneak Pique. Do you have a really strange group of besties, who always embarrass you when you try to get them all together for Christmas? Nah, me neither. Or, hey, do you have this old guy in your neighborhood, who is sorta like Mister Rogers? What...
