  • How to cook a country ham

    Country ham is a regional delicacy that many of us enjoy but may not know how to properly prepare. Here are some tips and tricks to make country ham the star of your holiday dinner.
    l Country hams may contain mold, which is a result of the curing process. Mold is normal, but it could produce mycotoxins which could cause a food-borne illness. Remove mold by washing the ham with hot water and scrubbing it with a stiff vegetable brush.

  • ‘Less religion, more grace’

    Last Saturday, Larry Silverman caught a catfish, which he considers a miracle, a moment of light after a year of incredible darkness. Larry is the pastor of New Covenant of Grace Fellowship in Inverness, Fla.
    Last year, Larry had a loose tooth, and shortly after he had it pulled he was diagnosed with cancer in his mouth. As a result, he had part of his tongue removed and his jaw reconstructed using a bone and skin from his leg. He now eats through a feeding tube.

  • HUH???!!!

    With the economy the way it has been the last few years, many of us have changed professions, positions and paychecks!
    Up and down; the whirlwind of change has affected us. I enjoy listening with rapt attention to others’ stories of how their lives have changed.

    My wife and I were eating in a little seafood restaurant on the Gulf Coast. The waitress was friendly and talkative. I asked her how she had got into “waitressing.”
