  • There was always something to do growing up on the farm to prepare for the different seasons. One of the busiest times was preparing the family garden so that it would grow and produce good, healthy vegetables all during the season.
    A good, productive garden must be maintained weekly by removing all produce that is good or bad to make room for new growth. New growth is essential for continuous productivity. Each plant can be sustained and maintained by keeping soil lose, watering and cultivating lightly, depending on the weather.

  • Recently, as Sen. Elizabeth Warren gave a speech criticizing then-nominee now Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell stopped her from speaking.

  • It was a day like any other day. I woke up and went through my usual routines of getting my son ready and taking him to school. After dropping him off at school, I drove to Georgetown for a meeting with some pastors. Nothing unusual about that either until I began my journey back to Cynthiana.

  • A number of years ago, one of my daughters was a “secret shopper.”
    She actually got paid to go into restaurants and eat or clothing stores and shop. All she had to do was be inconspicuous as she observed the store’s employees.
    Then after leaving the store, she would write a report of her observations: “The salespeople seemed too busy talking to each other to pay attention to customers,” or “The server disappeared as soon as she brought my food and failed to suggest dessert.”
