  • * Cynthiana News, Aug. 8, 1867 -- “Robert T. Rankin, express agent at this place, has furnished himself with a new express wagon with a cover to it. It reminds us much of an ambulance.”
    * Cynthiana Democrat, June 30, 1938 -- “Workmen began razing the buildings at the corner of Walnut and Bridge Street, known for many years as Cox’s Corner.

The new building will be leased by Gulf Oil and Refining Company for a filling station.”

  • The fire season has finally started -- in the fireplace, that is.  
    Early winter was so mild I wasn’t sure if we would be in need of some extra warmth.  Recent frigid temperatures changed all that and we have the wood stacked and sorted for easy access as we lay a fire for the evening. However, not all wood is created equal if you plan to use it for warmth in the fireplace.
    Since I have perfected my wood-splitting technique, I have come to understand different species of wood and their burning potential.

  •  My husband and I started a tradition a few years ago of attending Christmas Eve service at a church we’ve never attended before.
    That can be good and that can be not so good.
    Last year we went to a church in Orlando after hearing great things about it. We were flying out the next day from Orlando to visit our daughter who was in North Carolina at the time, so we decided to make Christmas Eve into a mini extravaganza with church, dinner afterwards, a walk downtown and a night at an Orlando hotel overlooking Lake Eola.
