  • Pick poinsettias at their peak

    I seriously cannot believe it is December. It is time to start decorating for the holidays which includes the poinsettia.  
    The poinsettia has been a fixture in American homes as a holiday decoration for as long as most of us can remember.  
    I think it is fair to say that it is considered the ‘official’ Christmas flower. In fact the U.S. Census Bureau says that over 75 million plants were sold last holiday season.  
    The poinsettia is native to Mexico and has been recognized for its beauty and function for centuries.

  • Tis the season for givinig

    FRANKFORT – There is never a bad time to count our blessings, but with Thanksgiving upon us, this time of year especially welcomes a look back on the positive things in our lives.
    I know it has been tough for far too long for many families because of the economy, and yet I am heartened that our sense of charity has never wavered.
    According to the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics, about 63 million Americans volunteered at least once last year, and each spent 52 hours on average helping others.
