Cars and houses keep you grounded in everyday life, the so-called "real world." And oddly this helps with long-term grief. Strange but true. Having to take care of practical tasks, along with taking care of your pets, grocery shopping, work, family, cooking, social occasions -- all keep you grounded in regular day-to-day life. Life is good. My most recent house-holding surprise was in November when a huge "thunder snow" storm hit our area. This is a winter storm with thunder and lightening, high winds, and lots of snow instead of rain.Well, this one hit one of my big silver maples in the front yard. It broke off one of its three trunks, 40-feet tall, and sent it crashing across the road. Now that sort of household task will get your attention!Village public works came out in the middle of the night to saw up the part blocking the road.

Southern California Republican Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, who tells a story of losing a drunken arm-wrestling match with Vladimir Putin in the 1990s to settle who won the Cold War, has long advocated friendly ties with Russia. But what in the past has been seen as part of the pot-friendly Republican's maverick streak now runs the risk of a more sinister interpretation. He met with a Russian woman later charged with being an agent of the Kremlin trying to infiltrate the National Rifle Association, and dined with her alleged boss.
