  • Bringing warmth, comfort to all in need focus for new Georgetown group

    As a community volunteer, Angie Parks often saw need and wanted to find a way to help more people.
    Recently, she made a way, establishing My Blanket Buddies.
    “You never know what stage of life you’ll find yourself in when you need help,” Parks said. “Many groups focus on children, some focus on only girls or only boys. Others focus on adults. We just want to focus on the need.”

  • Fat versus thin asparagus

    I was catching up on some magazine reading the other day and on two occasions I read the phrase “choose thin spears” and I got so frustrated.  
    These spring articles were about asparagus and I would like to go on the record that when it comes to homegrown asparagus (and even the wild growing in the fence rows) fat is good!  
    The fat spears have always been tender from the garden so don’t let anyone fool you on the fresh from the garden variety. They are particularly well-suited for the charcoal grill.
