    Although I didn’t have an addiction to a substance, I quickly discovered I did have an addiction to my “qualifier,” the person who is the reason I was there.
    Each week at this meeting, we’d sit around a table, and in front of us were stand-up cards with various slogans written on them such as “One day at a time” and “Easy does it.”
    The one that was always in my line of vision: “Let go and let God.”

  • Potatoes, garlic and onions are staples worldwide partly because of their versatility and partly because of their storage-ability. 
    Late July and August is when our spring planted onions, garlic and potatoes reach maturity and are ready for harvest. If you want to harvest some new potatoes, onions or garlic before they reach maturity enjoy them at the table in short order but if you want to store them it is important to harvest them at the correct time.
