  • It’s chigger time across Kentucky. Just talking about them may make you itch. Chiggers are actually the immature stage of certain mite species. You’ll find them most often in overgrown, bushy areas. They also congregate in shady, humid areas near stream banks, under or around shade trees or in berry thickets.
    After hatching, larvae crawl around until they find and attach to a suitable host. In addition to humans, chiggers feed on a variety of wild and domestic animals, including snakes, turtles, birds, rodents and domestic pets such as dogs and cats.

  • Likely as children, we all collected fireflies in a jar and took them to bed to light up our rooms on a warm summer night. 
    I remember getting my parents to puncture the lid of a mason jar so the magical insects could breathe. Well, it turns out that all that light flashing was about love. So, this holiday weekend maybe take a second look at all that firefly flashing in a different light.

  • Since my husband and I have no beach getaway plans this summer, I thought it might be fun to take Sunday mornings and visit some out-of-town churches.
    So, a few weeks ago I researched online for churches that look interesting, making a list of ones to visit.
    The challenge: finding churches we both find interesting -- we each look for different things in a church.
    Years ago, I famously (or infamously) chose a church to visit one Christmas Eve based solely on the looks of the building.
