  •  When my kids were little they used to ask me, “Who do you like best?”
    There’s really no way to answer that. How can you say, “Some days you and some days your sister”?
    Or: “Neither of you when you’re fighting with each other over hair scrunchies.”
    Even the standard “I like both of you equally” doesn’t satisfy a child’s question about who’s Mom’s favorite.

  • Keaten Thomas Custard was born to Sierra Roberts and Justin Custard of Cynthiana on Nov. 5, 2010 at UK Chandler Hospital in Lexington, Ky. He weighed 2 lbs. 12 oz., and is welcomed by his sister Kaelynn ‘Jade’ Bennett.

  • We all have bad habits.  Some people chew their fingernails; others mow their grass too short in the summer. You can guess which one bugs me the most.
    The odd thing about many of the worst bad habits in the garden is that they have become so commonplace. The worst offenses are repeated everywhere to the extent that gardeners think they are the rule.
    Over-mulching, for example, has been an epidemic problem for many years despite the fact that research spells out trouble for our plants when we bury their roots under a foot of hardwood mulch.
