Today's Features

  • In our busy, over-loaded and booked lives it is hard for us as individuals to develop real close relationships, so we friend-up people on Facebook (some of whom we do not know), or follow someone on Twitter to gain friends.
    We live on our cell phones and often think these ways will fill the void in our lives.
    We want people to like us for who we are and to not get so close as to find out our weaknesses or failings or even those skeletons in our closets. We want these relationships on our terms with no other strings attached or we will drop them like a hot potato.

  • (Editor’s note: Nancy Kennedy is off this week, hopefully NOT working. This is one of her favorite columns from 2009.)

    Today I scrubbed my kitchen floor, on my knees with a bucket of sudsy water and a brush, “Cinderella-style.”
    After that I polished all the stainless steel and rubbed the countertops with stuff that made them gleam. Then I vacuumed all the wayward popcorn from underneath the couch cushions and cleaned both bathrooms.

  • June 1 is the official cut off that marks the difference between a spring bloomer and a summer bloomer.
    Does it matter that you know? Yes, if you want to properly prune because pruning after June 1 could result in no blooms next year.
    This spring was a great one for spring bloomers: lilacs, viburnums, azaleas, rhododendrons and many others were all able to do their thing without a major frost or freeze here at the farm.

    The Christian Angler Sports Team (C.A.S.T.) has begun sponsoring a program at the public library called Rods and Reels. Patrons can go to the library and check out a fishing rod, complete with tackle box (just like they would check out a book). David Rogers and Paul Kempler, CAST members, have found something that would help kids become involved in outdoor recreation. CAST also organizes several other events.
