  • Dish gremlins, silverware hobgoblins and lint trap trolls

    We all know the story of the elves and the shoe cobbler. The elves would visit the shoe maker after he went to bed. The next morning, he would awaken to dozens of pairs of shoes made by the elves.
    His labors were lightened by the kindness and thoughtfulness of his nighttime visitors.
    I have nocturnal visitations as well. Unfortunately, mine seem bent on undoing all my efforts of the day plus adding a touch of mayhem. Allow me to introduce Dish Gremlins, Silverware Hobgoblins and Lint Trap Trolls.

  • At the farmers market: cauliflower

    The growing season is winding down, but the produce section of the market still has a lot of fresh produce available. One that you might not associate with fall is cauliflower.
    Cauliflower is packed full of nutrients and has very few calories. In fact, a half-cup serving of cauliflower contains an entire day’s dose of vitamin C and only 25 calories. Cauliflower also provides 10 percent of your daily folate needs and 8 percent of your dietary fiber requirements. It is very low in sodium and has no fat or cholesterol.

  • Thoughts on the prodigal’s dad

    Lately, I’ve been pondering the story Jesus told of the lost son, or what’s more commonly called the parable of the prodigal son.
    The son demands his inheritance from his father, which is basically him telling his dad he wishes him dead, and then takes the money and runs far away, squandering his wealth on wild living.
    When he ends up broke, he finds a job feeding pigs and finds himself so hungry that he longs to eat the pig food.

  • Beshear: We must not be silent about domestic violence

    The rate of domestic related violence in Kentucky is higher than the national average.

  • DO YOU REMEMBER?
  • October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month

    Each fall, just a few weeks before Domestic Violence Awareness Month begins in October, many of the nation’s programs that serve those who have been battered or abused take a real-time census of their work over a 24-hour period. By focusing on an otherwise normal day, we can better see the tragic reach of one of society’s most enduring problems.
