    Many of us have heard the old adage, “Don’t judge a book by its cover.”

    There are numerous applications of this truism in our lives.

  • Reception held for Anderson
  • The truth about lying

    I don’t know about you, but I hate being lied to.

    A few weeks ago we drove to Tampa, which is about 70 miles from where we live. That same day, we needed to go to Port Charlotte, which is south of Tampa.

    How far south, you ask?

    Well, according to the “distance between two cities” online calculator I used, Port Charlotte is 70 miles south of Tampa.

    Except the calculator lied.

    We drove and drove and drove and about 110 miles later got to Port Charlotte.

    I hate being lied to.
