Smoking Paraphernalia

Some collectibles aren’t what they seem at first glance. This green enameled piece that sold for $252 at Morphy Auctions looks like a covered jar. A closer look at the finial, shaped like a seated cherub or putto playing a stringed instrument, suggests its true purpose. It’s really a music box that plays two tunes. […]

Walking Your Dog

Since adding Big Dog, a Golden Retriever rescue, to our household, I have been tasked with taking him on several daily walks. This is new for me because my wife, a pet sitter/walker, walks our two other dogs. She doesn’t care to walk Big Dog because he is powerful and pulls when on a leash. […]

Seniors Vs. Crime

I often bring readers news about criminal investigations we’ve opened at the Volusia Sheriff’s Office to help local residents who have unwittingly become victims of fraud.
