  • A number of years ago, I flew a plane, Delta flight 837.
    OK, I didn’t exactly fly it, but I definitely helped.
    My daughter and granddaughter were on that flight from Atlanta to Honolulu, a nine-hour, 14-minute flight that, except for bathroom breaks, I tracked on my computer to make sure they got there safely.
    At one point, about an hour off the California coast, I noticed that the plane icon on my computer faced east instead of west.

  • These past few weeks, my husband and I have been doing a whole lot of nothing.
    We both had a mini version of the flu around New Year’s, and his hung on for the rest of the month. So, we mostly spent time at home doing a whole lot of nothing, which turned out to be something.
    One day we hosed off the back porch. One day my husband cleaned the kitchen.
    We sat in the living room -- a lot. We watched back-to-back-to-back reruns of “Law and Order,” the regular version as well as SVU and Criminal Intent.
    We know law and we know order.

  • In a fit of gratitude, I made a list of the things I loved about my life the other day. I managed eight solid things, none were frivolous; and one prompted the whole exercise:  I love warm February days.  
    This beautiful February day set into motion a very productive weekend. It felt so good to get some good old-fashioned garden clean up done with my husband by my side and the sheep grazing freely about.
    It makes you feel optimistic about the rest of your life.

  • I have loved green beans ever since I grew ‘Tenderette’ in the fifth grade for my 4-H project at Simpsonville Elementary.  
    I still love ‘Tenderette’ but now I prefer to grow pole beans, or climbers, so I don’t have to bend over to pick. If I do grow bush beans, it will be a long row of “Tavera’ because it is a flavorful bean at any size.  
    Another great thing about pole beans is that the vertical growth is a way to maximize yield in a limited space, so consider going vertical if you have a small garden plot.

  • February is American Heart Month, and the Harrison County Go Red for Women Committee is doing its part to raise awareness of heart disease in women. This year marks the 14th anniversary of the national heart disease awareness campaign.
    Fourteen years ago, the American Heart Association discovered that heart disease killed more women than men. Based on these findings, the AHA formed Go Red For Women, a campaign to bring awareness of heart disease through education. Accomplishments of the 14-year campaign include:
