  • ‘Free’ stuff comes with a cost

    I love free stuff.
    When we lived in California we lived near scads of big- box warehouse stores that always gave away free samples. Sometimes, if you got there on the right day at the right time, you could eat enough free samples and be too full to eat lunch or dinner when you got home.
    I wasn’t thinking of free stuff a few Sundays ago when I stopped at a little Pentecostal church I had never visited before, even though I’ve talked to the pastor many times.
    And what to my wondering eyes should appear? Free goodies and coffee!

  • Preserve habitats where monarch butterflies flourish

    Many of you know that one of my hobbies is taking photos of butterflies. Butterfly populations, and that of the Monarch in particular, have been on the decline in recent years. This is due in part to the loss of habitat; plants that Monarchs and other butterflies depend upon for food and on which they lay their eggs. While encouraging farmers to control weeds in their pastures and crop fields, we have, perhaps, destroyed valuable habitat that butterfly populations need to survive. Perhaps we need to be a little more conservation minded and preserve areas where they can flourish.
