Swift: Expiration dates are just suggestions
Once again, my mother was right. We've seen all sorts of stories lately on how the food industry is moving to replace expiration dates on food...

Swift: Do-it-yourself Dad may be least patient patient of all
They say doctors make the worst patients. Obviously, "they" have never met Pat Swift. So far, Dad's had a tough 2017. He fell on the ice, resulting...

Swift: Does technology really save time?

Swift: Lessons learned from watching parents age

Don't abandon the elderly canine
The online sale site was full of them.“Dog for giveaway. Great dog, but I moved to a new apartment and landlord doesn’t allow him.” “$500 for beautiful puppy. I bought him at a pet store and realized I can’t afford him.”And the most heart wrenching: “Father-in-law found...

Texting changes all punctuation rules. Period.
Look at you, Miss Fancy Texty Pants. What with your schmancy punctuation and your insistence on writing out every word and your hoity-toity capitalizations. What with your maddening refusal to use exclamation points or unicorn emoticons or made-up words like, “GAAAHHH!!!” Who...

Thanks to Pinterest, garage is Temple of Forgotten Dreams
I blame Pinterest. If it weren’t for the wildly popular social media site for hobbyists, I would not fool myself into thinking I am Martha Stewart. I would not be aware that there is a whole army of irritating craft ninjas out there who build industrial-style armoires out of Popsicle...

Pooch proves it's not a dog-eat-pill world
You can lead a dog to a pill, but you can’t make her eat. If the past year has taught me anything, it is this. As Kita has grown older, so have her ailments. She has needed more and more medications and supplements for the arthrite-y, the bursite-y, the bum elbow, the crickety back...

New car is a lot like having a new romance
I walked around the corner. There he was, waiting for me so patiently. I couldn’t believe he was mine. I wanted everything in our future to be perfect. I longed to cherish him and lavish him with attention. I imagined all the wonderful trips we would take together. He would always...

Watching a friend on clean food diet makes me want to make a clean get-away
It was four or five years ago when I first heard the term “clean eating.” My first thought was that this meant completing a meal without spilling on your shirt. But the person who was trying it — a rabidly enthused health nut — talked ad nauseam about its principles: eliminate...

Why SUVs all start with letter 'E' and other mysteries
If there’s one thing I’ve learned in the last few weeks, it is this. I am in the wrong profession. A few brilliant people out there are making big bucks by doing something that almost nobody else thinks about it. They name cars. That’s right. Their job is to hunker down into...

Allowing myself to have a mini-life crisis
Sometimes I suffer from Kindawanna virus. You know the one. It’s when you think to yourself, “I kinda wanna do that someday.” As in: I kinda wanna bungee jump. Or ride an elephant in India. Or tell my neighbor what I really think of her freaky collection of baby dolls. Unfortunately,...

At last, family returns to childhood home
It was the best news my parents had heard in awhile. When my niece expressed interest in moving onto our family farm, it was like an answered prayer. Ever since my parents moved off the farm 30 years ago, it had been a struggle to find a way to keep up the farmhouse. They had taken...
