  • Finally, after discussion, debating and a fair share of whining, my husband agreed to get rid of a pair of atrocious carpets. The carpets were decades old and have been the recipients of many assaults of the human and pet kind. No amount of vacuuming and steam cleaning had lightened the dingy color, eliminated the odor, or dispelled the carpet ghosts. One fine morning the carpet guys showed up and removed the bane of my existence. That afternoon I was free of dingy, smelly, haunted carpets!

  • When the U.S. Food and Drug Administration released its final guidance on menu labeling in late April, it was the last step in a process to require restaurants, convenience stores, take-out, retail establishments and supermarkets to publish the calorie content of their food on their menus.
    Some chain restaurants were already publishing this information on some items in anticipation of this announcement. Others have until May 2017 to implement the change.

The rapidly changing face of the American Culture of the 60’s and 70’s left many of our parents (children of the Great Depression of the 30’s) wanting their progeny to experience and understand what their childhoods were like.
    That is how I found myself, the summer of my 10th birthday, at my grandparents’ farm. Granddaddy had built a roughhewn bunkhouse to house my cousins and me for the farm labor we would provide for the summer.

  • I wish you could walk in my shoes.
    I’m talking about my Skechers round-toed EZ Flex 2 Sweetpea slip-ons with the softest, most cushiony memory foam footbeds that feel like I’m walking on pillows.
    I have three pairs -- black, gray and powder blue. Today I’m wearing the powder blue ones. They are the most comfortable shoes I own and quite possibly the most comfortable shoes I may have ever worn before in my entire life.
    I love these shoes.

  • June 5, 1986 (30 Years Ago)
    This year’s Trimble County Fair promises to be bigger and better than ever before. Running from June 17-21, the fair’s theme is Celebration ’86.
