I think I have watched everything that the streaming video services have to offer. I have exhausted Netflix and Hulu. I have run the gamut of every genre on Amazon Prime. Mickey Mouse himself asked me not to watch anything else on Disney Plus.

COLUMN: Where are the young plumbers?

A few months ago, we had some trouble here at the house and had to call a plumber. Well, as renters, we actually called the emergency maintenance number and the tired woman at the other end of the line took a message and she actually called the plumber. 

I'd like to take a few moments this week and thank some of the readers for their contributions to the column.

COLUMN: Dealing with the dumb

Often in this column, I have commented on some of the ridiculous things I notice on a daily basis. Some things are mildly amusing. Others are perplexing. Some are ironic and others are, well, truly weird. 

I think one of the hardest things during this time of quarantine is planning meals that are not only delicious but also not redundant.

COLUMN: Coffee can't cure late lethargy

I'm tired. You would think with all this stuff about staying at home and not doing anything, I would be well-rested. I'm not. Nowhere close to it. 

I know a lot of you are bored. I'm pretty bored myself. I find that being bored makes me more tired than being active. I think it should be the other way around, but that's not what happens. Boredom causes more of us to be tired and hungry than anything else.

COLUMN: Don't panic. We've got this

There are a lot of you out there that could use some levity. The events of the last week or so have whipped this country into a frenzy not seen in a very long time. Some folks believe it will blow over in a few weeks and others think it is the apocalypse. 

Every few months, I like to go to the old mailbag and see what the readers are sending me. Truth be told, there usually aren't a lot of letters and cards and most of what is in the old mailbag is junk mail.

I have been thinking of a lot of absurd things lately. When I say absurd, I mean really out there. Goofy. Wacko. Loony Tunes. The stuff I am thinking of could and probably should get me committed.
