One man's rant: Hello, I'm your substitute teacher
Late last year I decided to do something entirely different. I made this decision because my life was becoming comfortable and predictable. I could actually guess what would happen in the next five minutes or so. In other words, I felt that my time and place on earth was pretty much under control.

One man's rant: This column is about parts
This is the second part of a two-part medical series of columns. I'm actually a little concerned about this "two-part" reference since I think I remember writing the first-in-the-series column, but I'm not sure what I said in it or where I might find a copy of it. Anyway, referring to a "series" of columns makes the whole effort sound just a little more impressive, don't you think?

One man's rant" Saw it on TV, call your doctor
I called my doctor's office the other day to make an appointment. The receptionist asked me what the appointment was about. Consulting my notes I calmly said, "It's about BPH, ED, COPD, RLS, OAB, IC, OIC and LSMFT."

One man's rant: I hate it when the hero dies
I am a schmaltzy movie fan. I've watched numerous movies through misty eyes. Memorable among them were dog stories. In recent years I've sniffled through Max, Marley and Hachi: A Dog's Tale.

One man's rant: Hi Maggie (and what's his name)
Some years ago when I retired for the first time, I began looking around for volunteer activities. I don't know if I was caught up in the thought process to "give back to my community" or I just wanted to do fun things.

One man's rant: I'm pulling out of the race
In the wake of suspended presidential campaigns by Ben Carson, Chris Christie, Rand Paul, Rick Santorum, Mike Huckabee and others, I told my wife this morning that I've decided to suspend my campaign for president, too.

Smart homeowners capture, save water
We all read about water issues and are attempting to do our best to conserve and firmly believe that although our water in Yavapai county is fairly abundant and reasonably priced, but as the demand increases, inexpensive and low-cost water will become a thing of the past.

Get a CLUE, check your insurance report
Do you have a CLUE? We all know about credit reports, but are you aware that you also have a CLUE insurance report? Your CLUE insurance report keeps your homeowners insurance claims on record for seven years.

One man's rant: Proud to say he was a friend
I recently attended Emilio's funeral service which was an excellent tribute, but wasn't nearly as large as the man. In fairness it would be impossible to capture the sum total of a person in a one- or two-hour service, particularly Emilio.

One man's rant: Nothing replaces a kerfuffle
"This place attracts nothing but gits and prats with fag ends all over the floor and at least one argy bargy every weekend." (American translation: "This place attracts idiots and annoying people, has cigarette butts all over the floor and at least one kerfuffle every weekend.)

One man's rant: Meet Foxy and Skeeter
Foxy and Skeeter moved in as our new neighbors just a few months ago. Early on, they were hesitant to become acquainted. Now, they and I have established a tentative friendship as we get to know each other.

Did you now that each of us typically uses about 29,000 to 36,000 gallons of water a year - just on indoor usage, not counting sprinklers, pools, spas and car washing.

This column is about tattoos. I'm not sure where the following paragraphs will go since I know next to nothing about them and have never had the courage to try one.

One man's rant: Let it snow
I've learned my lesson. A few days ago a weather forecaster called for the first major snow storm of the season. My wife and I vowed to be ready. Intense preparations for the white-out at the Williams home began with a high level of excitement.

Miller's Musings: Show of hands. Who's royalty?
Entitlement. I hear this word a lot. It used to be a rare expression. Entitled folks were royal folks and their guaranteed access to rewards, benefits and exemptions from normal life came from a high-born status. It was granted by lowly serfs who recognized the throne of power.

Miller's Musings: The skill of listening
When I was studying art in college, a great deal of emphasis was put on training one's eye to see how an object, animal, or person was composed. This actually does take training, because humans have a tendency to view the world in a quick shorthand, making lots of assumptions about our environment.
