When I began my career in the funeral industry at the age of 21, I had a lot to learn. Looking back on it a half-century later, one thing I’ve learned is I would do it all over again. Although the hours were pretty hard on my family and me, I would choose this profession every time.
As children, we grow up watching movies about anything from dinosaurs to princesses and adventures to comedies. Looking back on the movies we watched as children, we find a deeper meaning that has resonated into our society and may make a connection to our own lives. Here are five movies that gain even more meaning as we age.
Our American Hemerocallis Society Display Garden is in full bloom and while they all are extraordinarily beautiful there are those certain varieties that just keep me fixated. I started noticing a few similar traits and as I researched them I realized they were all tetraploids.

Q: We have a 2-year-old collie shepherd mix who loves us, offers hugs and kisses and is loyal. But, when the dog and I are on the bed and my 20-year-old son enters the bedroom, the dog growls. Sometimes it's a bit scary. Last week he went too far. My wife and I were lying on the bed watching TV. The dog joined us with his head on her belly. When I got up to go to work, he growled his usual low growl. When I went to kiss my wife goodbye, he growled so close to her face that she thought he was going to bite her. The dog attended training successfully when he was 6 months old, never had a problem with company, and gets along well with the cat. Neighbors love to see us walk down the block while he holds his leash in his mouth. Do you think he just hates to see me leave or see my son enter the bedroom when it is our time?
