  • I hold the Olympic athletes in very high regard. I simply cannot imagine the level of dedication required to perform at that level of excellence. I also have much respect for the Para Olympics. The athletes in these games are admirable by having the heart and fortitude to not allow that which others may perceive as disabilities limit them in any fashion. Finally, we have the Senior Olympics. As someone once said snow on the roof does not necessarily equate to no flame in the furnace. Self confidence, no matter the odometer reading, gives me hope for my own future.

  • If you wear corrective lenses for vision, you may have chosen to wear contacts.  Contact lenses can be a great alternative to wearing glasses.  However, when wearing contact lenses, you will want to make sure that you are safely handling them on a day-to-day basis, taking care of them making sure that you visit the eye doctor on a regular basis.
    Here are some healthy habits for contact lens wearers:
    lWash hands. Before you ever touch your contact lenses you should wash your hands with soap and water and dry your hands with a clean cloth.

  • Manure can be a valuable fertilizer, if you know how to correctly use it. Having a nutrient management plan (NMP) can help you to understand how much manure your farm produces, to pinpoint what areas need manure and to identify crops that can best use the manure without losing nutrients via leaching or runoff.

  • For some, thinking about your grandparents’ romance is a little on the weird side. You just see older, graying wrinkled people. You love them, cherish them but you just don’t go there. Our children do not want to see us holding hands or kissing either, you will get an immediate ewwwwww!!!!!
    I happen to know the love stories of both of my grands, (to quote National Inquirer-“Inquiring minds want to know”). This is the story of Albert and Rosella, my grandparents during the summer of 1916.

  • On most days as I’m on my way to work I see a car with a bunch of bumper
    stickers on the back.
    There’s a “26.2” and a “13.1” sticker that means the driver is probably a
    marathon/half-marathon runner. Other stickers say things like “Easy does
    it,” “One day at a time” and “Let go and let God.”
    I’ve seen those slogans before and they’re often associated with 12-step
    programs like AA, although they don’t belong to them exclusively.
