No “L”? No Christ?

We have a clock radio in our bedroom that stays on WBFJ. I am not a morning person, I don’t wake up well, so it will play for awhile as I am in slumber trying to summon the will to get the day started. This morning they were playing a mix of the current Contemporary […]

On the field were the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49′ers, the game resulted in a win for the […]

It Could Be Heavenly

The second weekend in August is the time the Craver and Faw families have their annual reunions. They used to be separate weekends, but the Craver family got spread between North Carolina, California and Pennsylvania in the late 1950′s and 1960′s, and into Ohio in the 1990′s. So somewhere along the line the Cravers began […]
