My beloved bride's Packers are one step closer to the Superbowl. Hurray for them. The Panthers are out of contention. You can't have everything. As the Playoffs wind down, I am trying to get up my usual enthusiasm for the Superbowl. Right now, with all that is going on around the globe, it is sometimes difficult to remember to enjoy the events and people around you. I am as guilty as some, more guilty than most, of getting wrapped up in the news, both national and global. I have to remind myself that I can not change or affect these events and the only thing I am accomplishing is raising my own blood pressure. So take a deep breath and enjoy the last few weeks of football! ~ Michael S. Pauley
