    Soon you’ll be receiving seed catalogs for the 2017 vegetable-growing season. While listening to the cold wind blow outside, what a comfort it is to think about spring and summer and planning your garden.
    To make the most of your garden, every aspiring gardener should follow seven steps to have a successful gardening season.
    • Plan your garden on paper before you begin.

  • It is that time of year again and I am reminded because of the smell and road kill left behind.
    Plus, a strong scent of skunk has been lingering in the pasture this past week; and I got an Instagram video from my niece as she was clearly backing away from a lumbering black and white rodent down by the river.  
    We used to get them circling the house on winter evenings but our livestock guardian dogs’ presence has kept them at bay the last few years.

  • I found an interesting fact during my Bible study yesterday.  I was reading in Matthew 8:10 where it tells us of a centurion with a servant in need of healing in his body.  
    This Roman centurion approached Jesus with this need and was shocked to find the response of Jesus.
    Our Lord told the man, “I will come and heal him.”  
    The centurion responded in humility and asked that Christ would “but speak the word only and my servant shall be healed.”  

  • After deep and serious thought, I think I have a solution for all the world’s major problems:
    Everybody stop.
    Just stop. Take a breath. Step back. Chill out.
    Protesters, go ahead and protest, but you don’t have to riot, so put down your bricks and rocks. Stop looting. Stop damaging people’s property. Stop shouting obscenities -- and clean up your litter on the streets.
    People need to stop their violence, beginning in the home. Stop beating your wife or your boyfriend or your kids. Stop getting drunk. Stop doing dope.
