  • I used to believe the saying that “Time heals all wounds.”  
    This has just not been true for me. As a child who grew up with two alcoholic parents, I had some hurts and wounds that were not repairing themselves with passing time.  
    In fact, the longer I tried to ignore my pain, the more damage I did to myself. I searched for ways to numb the pain and ignore the damage that had been done.   

  • Not to get all TMI (“too much information”) on you, but I have this black spot on my toenail.
    When I first noticed it, my over-active, ultra-melodramatic imagination decided it was melanoma and I only had three weeks to live.
    It turned out to be blood underneath the nail from the time I dropped something on it. The doctor diagnosed it as an “owie” and said it would take a long time for it to go away, that the spot would grow out as the nail grows.

  • As I write we are getting flurries and the forecast calls for some frigid temperatures (by now we are experiencing them!)
    We have called to have our old furnace serviced to hedge our bets against frozen pipes as the heat pump struggles to keep up with single digit temperatures.  
    The firewood is staked and ready to stoke the Buckstove for overnight; and if the sidewalks get slick we have a stash of deicing agents. As the winter season unfolds, consider the effect that deicing agents have on your plants.

  • I am sure most farmers in the area have made a special effort to feed and maintain an adequate water supply for their animals during this extreme cold weather. The last couple of weeks have created stress on the animals and the produce as well. The need of a good feed supply is essential to maintaining our animals. With spring calving season approaching the following article was prepared by Dr. Jeff Lehmkuhler on care for young calves as the late winter and spring calving season occurs.

  • The Kentucky Department of Agriculture’s Poster and Essay Contest will add a category for digital submissions this year along with the traditional poster and essay competitions.

    The couple has two sons, Tom (Cindy) Hardin and Jerry (Michelle) Hardin, seven grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.
