  • I recently attended a birthday party.
    As I was talking to a young girl, I soon learned she had gotten in trouble with her mom because of a Facebook comment she had posted.
    As I listened to her, the young lady was not too happy about her mom’s decision to make her stay off Facebook.
    I also learned the facts behind the problem, I explained to her why her mom was right and why she needed to respect that.
    My advice didn’t go over very well at all.

  • When I was a kid, we used to sing the taunt, “Shame, shame, everybody knows your name!”
    I don’t remember who taught it to us, but we took great delight in singing it to anyone we wanted to shame and humiliate.
    I was a horrible child. I’m still horrible, but I clean up nicely and mostly refrain from pointing out people’s sin to their face in public.
    Still, what is it about us humans that we love to shame others?

  • I am planting a fall garden for sure this year.  
    The current one is a flop so it is time to start over. The challenge with a fall garden is getting seed and seedlings to germinate and grow during the heat of the end of summer.  
    If temperatures moderate we have a better chance at success. Planting beds are ready since the potatoes have been harvested (and the rotten onions removed).  

  • * Cynthiana Democrat, July 26, 1934 -- “An all time heat record, so far as it is known, was set here Sunday afternoon when the Rohs thermometer climbed to 107 degrees in the shade. The scorching weather, which began last Friday, has sent the mercury to 100 or better every day for six days. A large crowd of Saturday shoppers sweltered under a temperature of 106 degrees.”
