  • You know all the jokes about people having bumper crops of summer squash?  Squash shows up in people’s cars or in public spaces because there is so much that the gardener can’t even give it away.  Well, that’s never really been a problem for me.  I have a little bit of that problem this year and I give credit to the variety and the fact that it was plated later than usual.  Others, however, have not been so blessed.

  • In January 2013 I was blessed to be able to go to the Holy Land with our Bishop, Lindsey Davis and His wife, Jennifer Mink Davis. There were many who also attended this journey and came from all parts of Kentucky. We all met in Philadelphia and traveled together on one big plane. It was a long flight which took about 13 hours before landing in Israel. Our flight left very late that evening, and once I boarded the aircraft, even though very excited, I prepared myself to go to sleep for the beginning of the flight.
