Christmas Tree Updates: Finding the Answer
One of my favorite sketches in the old Garrison Keillor radio hour was Guy Noir, Private Eye, and his search to find answers to “life’s persistent questions.”  While I will never have Keillor’s knack for humor, I’d like to offer some tips about finding answers to “life’s persistent questions.”
