  • I used to have a visceral response to lush spring grass; it gave me anxiety because I knew it was time to get on the Scag and start mowing (and usually the Scag would not start coming out of winter storage!)  
    This year I see the grass in a different way because it is potential pasture for our growing herd of sheep.  
    We use moveable, electrified fence and rotational grazing methods to keep the pasture and the herd healthy so the more grass I have the better. It is a liberating feeling not worrying about getting the grass mowed.

    Cancer patients often need blood products:
    • Some cancers can cause internal bleeding, which can lead to anemia (too few red blood cells).
    • Cancers that start in the bone marrow (such as leukemia) or that spread there from other places may crowd out the normal blood-making cells, leading to low blood counts.

  • Of all my well-worn, marked-up, pages-turned-down books, those written by Brennan Manning are among the most beaten up.
    Former Roman Catholic priest Richard Francis Xavier “Brennan” Manning died April 12 at age 78.
    His most famous book and one that’s beloved by millions is “The Ragamuffin Gospel.” In it, Manning proclaimed good news for the “bedraggled, beat-up and burnt out” — good news for me and for you.
