  • As summer fruit begins to ripen, or should I say rot, the calls start coming in.  
    Home orchardists in Kentuckiana are at wits end as they watch their apples, peaches and pears do little more than fall from the tree in a spotted, bruised or petrified state.

  • I’ve always said motherhood is easy when you don’t have kids.
    Likewise, it’s easy to be married when you’re not. When you’re not married and you’re only dreaming about it, you imagine the ideal. In your imagination, you and your spouse say and do all the right things, and even your arguments are sweet and making up is rosy.
    In real life, however, marriage gets thorny, and sometimes bloody.
    Mostly, it’s just regular, with a few blips and annoyances along the way.
