  • Just for the record I am not one of those people who puts up their tree just after Thanksgiving; I need more time to absorb the effects of every holiday.
    But there are many who are ready to pick out the perfect Christmas tree.
    I have a certain set of parameters for our tree; it needs to be worth the effort of cleaning, moving furniture, hauling boxes, lights, step ladders and more.  
    However, once the mundane is done then the fun begins.  
    Each ornament that adorns the tree has a story to tell about my grandparents, parents or me.

    The U.M.C. Scholarship Fellowship will be held Dec. 1 at 6 p.m., the last service for the year. Please support this important cause and usher in the Christmas season.

    WarEagle Ministries Praise and Worship Center invites all to come and worship. Come as you are.
    A hymn/gospel sing will take place on the first Saturday of each month at 6 p.m. starting in June. Bring CDs or instruments and join along.

  • A few weeks ago I met with a friend who’s a play therapist.
    She works with troubled, abused and damaged children, letting them play while she observes and does some other stuff — therapist stuff — that helps them express and process their thoughts and feelings.
    There’s a lot more to it, but that’s my reduced-to-bare-bones version of what she does.

  • It’s time to clean up the bramble patch: In order to maintain healthy and productive blackberries and raspberries, we need to prune out the old to make room for the new.   
    Most brambles are biennial, which means they fruit on second-year growth.  
    Blackberries are easy to deal with, just remove the arching canes that fruited this year and trim up and trellis the new growth from this summer, which will bear next summer’s fruit. Repeat the same thing next year.
