  • When I was about 2 years old, I bopped my baby brother with a wooden hammer and once put a wad of gum in my sister’s hair.
    I was part of a group of kids who called a girl in our neighborhood “fungus face,” and in eighth grade I spread vicious rumors about a girl who I thought stole my boyfriend.
    Once I shoplifted a bottle of Compound W wart remover and a Yardley Lip Slicker lipstick from Thrifty Drug Store.

  • Our resident skunk population has grown to three: each animal larger than the last. I thought I knew the average size of these critters but I was sadly mistaken. The skunk syndicate moved under our porch with the possums. I’m beginning to believe that either some kind of party is raging or they’re planning a coup to overthrow the humans and take the house.

  • Batch cooking (or cooking in advance) is preparing several meals at one time.  It allows you to plan a week or more of menus around featured sales at the grocery store.  This saves time and money.  Batch cooking can be done in several ways.  One way is to make entire meals and then freeze them for later use.  The meals can be prepped in advance and frozen for cooking later or completely cooked so they only need to be thawed and reheated.  Hearty stews, casseroles and lasagnas are great examples of meals you can freeze for later use. 

  • A stinky brown army is marching across Kentucky this fall, accidentally entering your homes and offices and they look for protective overwintering sites. Brown marmorated stink bugs leave a stain and a very unpleasant odor when mashed. Once winter ends, the insects move on and resume their normal life cycle. But they can leave a path of plant damage in their wake. You take charge and reclaim your structures and fields from these invaders.
