  • Tips on how to provide shade from the blazing sun

    I can’t believe this heat already. I was hopeful that this summer was not going to be a repeat of last, but it looks like we are on track for some serious heat this summer.  
    Some vegetables will surely respond to temperatures in the 90’s … some will be good and some will be bad. I know we can’t change the ambient air temperature on a 90 degree day, but we can provide some shade for our plants on the hottest days of the summer with reasonable results.

  • Do you want to be our friend? Click yes or no

    Who hasn’t dreaded the choosing sides way of teaming up?
    Two “coaches” are selected and then those coaches choose from a pool of wanna-be players until the final player remains and the last coach to choose is stuck with the last player.
    I always feared not being liked enough to be picked in any draft and being the lone player left behind, which in theory would be the lesser athlete, but in reality is the least popular.
    We all want to be liked; from sporting activities to business.
    Life’s just that way.

  • May today be the beginning of a new journey

    Mr. Dotson, school board members, administrators, teachers, parents, family and especially the graduates in the class 2011: Good evening.  
    I first want to thank the class for allowing me to be the speaker this evening. I am honored and will attempt to keep it short and get you out of the heat.
    Just 25 years ago I was in your seats. At that time, we had graduation in the auditorium, the overflow was  in the library and both were extremely crowded. Lots of things have changed over the last 25.

  • Miracles happen

    Joan Chipkar is one of those people I can’t say no to.
    In 2004, after Florida was hit by hurricanes, she convinced me to go with her to do laundry for health department staff working in the hardest hit area.
    Last year, when her beloved therapy dog Charlie died, I wrote an obituary column about the brown and white cocker spaniel.
    And when she called last week to ask me to write about her miracle great-grandson Landon in Alabama, I didn’t say yes, but I didn’t say no.
