  • There is no surer sign of spring than blooming gardens and flowerbeds, but what happens behind-the-scenes to get them to that point?

    Much of the work goes in before you even break the soil. Before digging in, it’s important to choose the proper site, plan what you’ll grow and prepare the soil to yield the best possible results. A garden is nothing without a good foundation, making it extra important to choose the correct site.

  • Caffeine is the most commonly ingested drug found naturally in teas and coffees, the most popular beverages consumed around the world. It can also be found in many beverages commonly consumed by children and youth, such as soft drinks, energy drinks and even chocolate milk. Caffeine is popular because of its energy-boosting, mind-jolting effects, but research is starting to surface that explains the effects this drug may have on children and youth during development.

    I have three computers. The three are dedicated to specific roles. The oldest only holds photos. I’m afraid to overwhelm its capabilities. My second laptop initiated an auto destruct but was stopped before the point of no return. We dumped everything it ever knew and started afresh. It’s got a new lease on life. I’m using it for this article.

    The newest member to my little laptop crew has developed a thirst for adventure.

  • These past few weeks, my husband and I have been doing a whole lot of nothing.

    We both had a mini version of the flu around New Year’s, and his hung on for the rest of the month. So, we mostly spent time at home doing a whole lot of nothing, which turned out to be something.

    One day we hosed off the back porch. One day my husband cleaned the kitchen.

    We sat in the living room – a lot. We watched back-to-back-to-back reruns of “Law and Order,” the regular version as well as SVU and Criminal Intent.

  • Everyone is welcome to attend a concert of Christian music presented by David Stahl at 11 a.m. Sunday at Bedford Baptist Church. For a ride to 10 a.m. Sunday school, please call the church office at 255-3240 by 8 a.m. Sunday.
