  • No matter what you call it, clutter, mess, junk, or hoarding, I can produce the aforementioned with a snap of my fingers. I like to think of it as channeling my inner kangaroo rat. I also consider myself to be a recycler/reuser par excellance. My husband may see junk where I see possibility. After all, those mismatched beads may be drafted into a new role as part of a mixed media piece. Despite my well-crafted, logical argument in favor of keeping my materials I suspect some are being moved out of the house when I’m otherwise engaged.

  • Horn fly and face fly numbers will continue to build for a few weeks, which will put pressure on control programs. It is a good time to evaluate the pasture fly situation in your herd; check during the early afternoon on a sunny day (Figure 1) less than 100 horn flies per side and less than 10 face flies per head is a good target for animal protection. Consider an adjustment or supplemental measure if fly numbers exceed these guidelines.
    Management

  • Just when I think I’m not so bad, something happens to show me that I am so bad – bad to my rotting bones.
    There’s this person.
    For some reason I feel an intense, irrational, utterly petty competitiveness with her, even though we’re not competitors in any area whatsoever. Frankly, I don’t think she even knows who I am, but I sure know who she is.
    I make it my business to know her business and am giddy with glee whenever something goes even a little bit askew in her life.

  • I inherited my creative urge from my grandmother. With her bright blue eyes sparkling, whenever she walked in a room you knew everything was going to be better simply by being in her presence. Always an optimist, she would give home-spun wisdom and encouragement: “Don’t borrow troubles from tomorrow, there is sufficient ones for today,” or “You can’t see over the hill or around the corner,” to quote a few.

  • August 7, 1986 (30 years ago)
    More than 30 Trimble County farmers participated in “Operation Haylift,” an effort to donate hay to farmers in the drought-stricken South. Over 3,000 bales of hay were hauled from Trimble County to a railroad car pickup point at Shelbyville. One local farmer hauled 250 bales to Shelbyville himself.

    After reading blogs, articles and social media it is difficult to believe anyone would ask, what is Pokémon Go?
