  • I broke the trash can. I didn’t exactly break it, more like dislocated it; and it wasn’t the entire trash can, just the lid- typical. Needless to say this was another fine example of the way most of my days progress. My motto is “If it can be broken, it will be broken.” It’s not that my aim is destruction; it simply seems to be the outcome.

  • The USDA recommends the use of self-sealing two-piece metal caps (lids plus screw bands) for home canning. For years, lid manufacturers have instructed us to preheat the flat metal lids in simmering water to soften the sealing compound before use. But if you use Ball® or Kerr® brand lids, your home canning has just gotten a little easier—preheating the lids is no longer required.

  • No matter where you drive in southern Indiana or central Kentucky, the black locust, Robinia pseudoacacia, is in full bloom, and a glorious bloom it is. There is nothing like the fragrance of black locust blooms wafting in the air and the Orchard Oriole singing in   the trees, or so my wife, Carole, says. I have to admit the blooms smell awesome. Although the tree is not much to look at otherwise, I believe it rivals the beauty of the common dogwood when it is in bloom. Its blooms are also a good source of nectar for honey bees.

  • Crystal Caudillo, new columnist for The Trimble Banner, was born and raised in Crestwood. She attended college at Murray State University where she received a Bachelor’s degree. She received a Master’s Degree from Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville.
    “Both degrees were in communication disorders which trained me to become a speech therapist,” she says. “I worked as a speech therapist in the public school systems in Kentucky, Indiana and Illinois.

  • Our home resembles an airport terminal during the height of the holiday season. I don’t mean we have planes departing and arriving. Nor do I mean we have luggage carousels frustrating passengers once they realized they landed in Louisville and their luggage is somewhere in Houston. What I mean is we have several creatures, of assorted species, in perpetual motion.

  • Insecticide-impregnated cattle ear tags have been a popular means of controlling pasture flies (horn fly and face fly) for over 20 years. The insecticide in the tag “blooms” from the plastic matrix and is then transferred to the animal’s hair coat. Plus, the fly control program travels from pasture to pasture with the animal.
