If you take medication take them with a small amount of water, don’t skip taking them. The blood test is a fasting blood test, so do not eat or drink anything, except your medicine, after midnight. It is over at 11 a.m.

  • Did you know that azaleas and rhododendrons are essentially the same thing? They are both members of the rhododendron genus; they have similar blooms and similar cultural requirements.  
    Some say the primary difference between the two is the number of pollen-bearing stamens:  rhods have 10 or more per flower and azaleas have only five.  
    The rhododendron genus is divided into five main groups:  Large-leaf rhods; small-leaf rhods; Vireya rhods; deciduous azaleas; and evergreen azaleas. The latter two are our primary concern here.  

  • The Kentucky Office of Drug Control Policy and the Kentucky Agency for Substance Abuse Policy has awarded the Bourbon-Harrison Local KY-ASAP Board the 10-Year Celebration and Achievement award for outstanding accomplishments in providing substance abuse education, prevention, treatment and law enforcement initiatives for the past 10 years.

    The Walking Dead have a message for you:
    Matthew 27:50-53 “And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, he gave up his spirit.  At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook, the rocks split and the tombs broke open. The bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life. They came out of the tombs after Jesus’ resurrection and went into the holy city and appeared to many people.”

  • About six or so years ago, I met a man who said he saw a dead man raised to life.
    The dead man’s name was Bob and the man who told me about it said God had told him to go to Bob’s house to pray.
    He didn’t know Bob had died until he got there, but since God had told him to pray, he figured he better do it. So, he asked Bob’s wife if he could see him.
    The man had seen death before, and Bob was dead. Even so, the man started praying because God had told him so.
