Dear Crabby with a Laptop Computer

Dear Crabby, We have a small Jack Russell Terrier and he is very hyper. He growls and barks at everyone, but does not actually bite anyone. I am afraid to leave him out when we have guests, but I feel worse locking him up every time. So far we have settled on not having guests over anymore. There must be a better way! What do you think? Sincerely, Locked Up WitPup Dear Locked Up WitPup, Well I am one who firmly believes that the dog should not alter your lifestyle, but rather you … [Read more...]

Dear Crabby, What is up with ‘Duck Dynasty?’


Dear Crabby, Why is everyone so crazy about Duck Dynasty these days? All I see are a bunch of country guys with long beards acting goofy and shooting ducks! Half the world loves them and half the worlds hates them. Why all the fuss over these guys anyway? Sincerely, Duck Dude Dear Duck Dude, I have only watched one episode of this show on television. From what I saw these guys seem to enjoy family, faith, and ducks. They also appear to make a lot of money from their duck business. I … [Read more...]

Dear Crabby with a Laptop Computer

Dear Crabby, It seems like everyone from President Obama to the kids next door have a March Madness Bracket they are filling out these days. What are these things for?

Dear Crabby, Why do police officers give tickets?


Dear Crabby, Why does it seem like police officers give more tickets at certain times of the year?  Is there some sort of quota they need to fill?  Is this a fundraiser for them?

Dear Crabby with a Laptop Computer

Dear Crabby, I see people joining these warehouse stores and buying huge quantities of food and perishables and I wonder why? I have a small family and I think you can get what you need in smaller quantities if you are just diligent with the sales. What is the appeal of these mega-stores anyway? Sincerely.

Dear Crabby, What is happening to our health care?


Dear Crabby, I am starting to get really worried about our health care here in the United States. It seems like we were promised great, affordable, easy-to-use health care and now all we hear about is that the website doesn't work and the politicians aren't sure what it will even cost. I have quite a few years left to go and I am a little concerned about what is happening. What do you think?
