  • The farm looks like a storm hit recently but it’s really just my husband’s brand of deer deterrent. It seems to be working.  
    In the past, we have forgone the Irish Spring soap, human hair and coyote urine for more reliable barriers. Tomato cages, tobacco stakes, wire, spiral plastic trunk wrap, and, yes, an occasional arrangement of lawn chairs have created distance between rutting and browsing deer and the trunks of young trees.

  • I like to read psychological thrillers with twisted plots and even more twisted characters.
    In the last thriller I read, the main character, Emily, was tied up in a room about to be murdered by her crazy stalker.
    He goes out of the room and Emily starts thinking back on her life, pretty sure she only has hours or minutes to live.
    She remembers back to what she learned as a girl from a teacher at her Catholic school: When you’re in trouble, look for the cross. Once you find one, you’ll see them everywhere.
