  • Plan ahead while dreaming of Spring

    Plant and seed catalogs will be jamming the mailbox any day now. I always feel like January ushers in a clean slate for the garden: optimism abounds among the fresh ideas and new goals; and promises never to repeat a crop busting mistake are sharp in my memory. 

    Sometimes the slate stays clean; sometimes it doesn’t. Either way the next couple of months can be used to plan and prepare for the next growing season. Don’t get over whelmed by (or over indulge in) all the catalogs until you actually decide on what you want to accomplish for the year.

  • Museum Musings

    • Cynthiana Democrat, June 13, 1929 - by the Observer - “When I became somewhat familiar with Cynthiana, ‘Uncle’ Henry Johnson was the popular barber of the town and continued his trade for some years after, retiring somewhere in the 1880’s on account of advance age. Doubtless many of our elderly citizens will remember him and various locations of the shop, ranging from Jones Row on north Court Square to the Rankin Hotel, now the Hammond building on Pike Street; For a brief time he plied his calling in the basement of the new brick hotel.”
