  • For the past month I have been working on stories for my newspaper’s month-long emphasis on breast cancer.
    I’m up to my eyebrows in breast cancer research and have talked with a number of women who are either actively in treatment for this disease or are counting the months and years of being a survivor.
    As it always happens whenever I write about a disease or medical condition, I convince myself that I’m next to get it. When my husband had open-heart surgery, I thought I had heart disease. It took three or four doctors to assure me that I did not.

  • Several weeks ago, one of the top trending stories on the Internet featured an email from a North Carolina church pastor that was sent to her parishioners.
    Pastor Makeda Pennycooke of Freedom House Church in Charlotte, N.C., told church members that she wanted “white greeters only” at the front door before Sunday services. She said she wanted “the best of the best” out front, hoping to draw more people into the church.

  • How about this weather?
    I am anticipating a very good orchid season coming up because our temperatures have been so mild, especially with night time temperatures dipping into the 50s already.  
    These cool nights are a piece of the puzzle in order to get some plants to bloom indoors in the winter.
    When attempting to grow tropical plants we are met with the challenge of mimicking their native habitat which is difficult inside our homes.
    We can allow Mother Nature to take care of some of this, outside, for now.
