      Indian Horse   Years ago, I was a tour guide at a place called The Olentangy Indian Caverns in Delaware, Ohio. It’s a small cavern, and so the tour script had to be good. We could not just take people on a LONG walk underground for an hour. You can walk the whole thing is five minutes- not counting the breathless climb back to the top!

I realized, after doing this for a few Summers on my…

      Review of Little Miss Sumo   Bright Blessings, Film lovers!   I’ve always been a huge fan of Sumo Wrestling since watching the first match on TV I ever saw of it. In a country- America- where sports fans and athletes tear each other apart, and get into fights on the playing fields- it is downright refreshing to me to see the courtesy, pride, and poise Sumo Wrestlers exhibit. I have never seen a more polite, or regal sport. Tonight, I learned something about it, though. Traditionally, Sumo is for men only- but for many years, many little girls and women around the world have done Sumo wrestling, although…
