  • One of my favorite things in life is architecture.
    I love buildings, especially huge skyscrapers and massive structures.
    That’s why, when the Notre-Dame Cathedral caught on fire a week or so ago, I was interested in the rapt attention worldwide -- over a building.
    People actually mourned the destruction of a centuries-old building, and not just the people of Paris, but people from around the world.

  • I recently enjoyed a weekend in Tennessee with some young folk from church. We were attending a retreat sponsored by a Christian college.
    First, kudos to these young people and the folks raising them. They were fine representatives of both their families and their home church.
    Needless to say there were young people, about 250, invading the campus from at least seven states. There was food, loud music and plenty of activities – my body has gotten really o-l-d! 

  • June 1 is the official cut off that marks the difference between a spring bloomer and a summer bloomer.  
    Does it matter that you know? Yes, if you want to properly prune because pruning after June 1 could result in no blooms next year.
    This spring was a great one for spring bloomers: lilacs, viburnums, azaleas, rhododendrons and many others were all able to do their thing without a major frost or freeze here at the farm.   

  • 10 years ago . . .
    Births announced this week are: Dalton Lair Ewalt, April 9, son of Bradley and Elizabeth (Hedger) Ewalt.
    The Rohs Opera House, Pike Street, was built in 1941 by H.A. Rohs and his son, Karle Rohs (actor Chris O’Donnell’s grandfather and great-grandfather). The building has been owned by only two families - the Rohs family and now, the Whalen family. Older than the theater itself, Aeolian Hall, located above the Rohs, was built in 1871 and used until the late 1930s, when the Rohs family decided to build Rohs Opera House.
