It gives the patrons unparalleled comfort on the hottest day and changes air constantly so there is always a fresh clean odor, no matter how packed the house may be. The air conditioner was first used last week and has since been in operation.

  • I have long understood that purslane could be used in salads or soups, but have never made much of an effort to harvest and devise a kitchen plan until know. 

    I had this fabulous stand of the weed in my kitchen garden after I pulled the old greens that bolted from the summer heat. It made perfect sense to let it grow and flourish because no lettuce seed would be germinating in this heat and I knew that this garden was free from any herbicides.

    So, the purslane established and I have turned young and old alike onto its culinary virtues.

  • * Cynthiana Democrat, Nov. 30, 1950 - “Raging Blizzard - Snowdrifts in Rural Areas as High as 12 Feet - A raging blizzard Satuday night resulting in snow drifts as high as 12 feet in some rural areas, left Cynthiana and Harrison County locked in the heaviest snowfall since January, 1936. With the exception of the L & N Railroad all transportation facilities serving the city were brought to a standstill.

  • I received a call the other day about what to do with a blue spruce covered in bagworms. The tree is apparently covered (and large), so hand-picking was not an option.  The caller said the pest was rather large, too, so I had to recommend a systemic insecticide as the treatment. 

    I prefer that we catch the bagworms earlier in the season so that we can take a biological approach, but this is not always the case.
