It was a noble experiment, if by that you mean something tried by nobility or those feigning nobility. &nbsp;&nbsp;</span></p><p></p><p></p><p></p> Thu, 29 May 2014 22:42:42 +0000 Don Kahle 13273 at http://ijpr.org Revealing The “Tense” In The Middle Of “Utensils” Pets In A College Town http://ijpr.org/post/pets-college-town <p>I love living in a college town. Ever since Socrates first got away with it, educators have learned they can ask questions for a living. It must be an intellectual version of keeping up with the Joneses, but before you know it, everyone is asking questions just for the fun of it.</p><p></p> Thu, 01 Aug 2013 17:53:01 +0000 Don Kahle 323 at http://ijpr.org A Simple Recipe: Sundays At Six http://ijpr.org/post/simple-recipe-sundays-six <p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">Except for casserole recipes, I don’t often look to the editors of <em>Parade Magazine</em> for inspiration. I thumb through it most Sundays as quickly as I can. I would ignore it altogether, but I can’t bear to waste any part of my newspaper.

I admire new ways of using little bits of leftovers that otherwise would have gone to waste.</span></p> Wed, 01 Aug 2012 17:50:41 +0000 Don Kahle 322 at http://ijpr.org Decluttering http://ijpr.org/post/decluttering <p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">My friend Bill asked me to come to Klamath Falls to help him out. I asked twice what sort of help he needed. He wouldn’t tell me, except to say, “Bring gloves.”</span></p><p>He admitted when I arrived that he was afraid if he told me, I might change my mind and stay home in Eugene. But that would make sense only to a stubborn 82-year-old Midwesterner, a man determined to hold onto his pride even longer than his health.</p> Mon, 01 Aug 2011 17:48:20 +0000 Don Kahle 321 at http://ijpr.org
