  • Stairs

    Our house has a type of staircase which is fairly typical in an older home. The stairs are very narrow and steep. They climb in their steep, narrow way to a second story, which must have been designed for Lilliputians. Not only are the stairs unsuitable for any member of my tall family, the ceilings in the upstairs rooms slope down. I can’t count the times I’ve nearly concussed myself when I forgot the clearance level in my closet.

  • 4-H’ers, get ready to go camping

  • Safe canning practices keep everyone healthy

    Gardens are beginning to bear the fruits of our labor. Soon, it will be time to start thinking about preserving some of the excess produce for winter months.

  • Admiration for those magnificent flowers

    By Dr. James L. Snyder
    The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I were sitting on the back porch admiring the close of the day. Nothing is more relaxing than sitting together drinking coffee, glad that another day has quietly slipped by.
    Out of the clear blue sky my wife said, “Aren’t those flowers just magnificent?”
    I grunted a little grunt of satisfaction to which she replied, “Which do you like? The roses or the tulips?”

  • Optimize your energy

    If an individual lives in a continual state of stressful emotion, the body systems break down. Patterns of chronic environmental pressures result in ulcers, high blood pressure, neurosis and depression to name a few. Changes take place in the body’s chemical balance resulting in lower brain and organ function. We are each in control of the world we create by the choices we make. Choosing to focus on positive aspects that are self-supportive lead the individual to set boundaries and build harmonious bridges in relationships.
