  • Nasty surprise

    Our resident skunk population has grown to three: each animal larger than the last. I thought I knew the average size of these critters but I was sadly mistaken. The skunk syndicate moved under our porch with the possums. I’m beginning to believe that either some kind of party is raging or they’re planning a coup to overthrow the humans and take the house.

  • Batch cooking (cooking in advance)

    Batch cooking (or cooking in advance) is preparing several meals at one time.  It allows you to plan a week or more of menus around featured sales at the grocery store.  This saves time and money.  Batch cooking can be done in several ways.  One way is to make entire meals and then freeze them for later use.  The meals can be prepped in advance and frozen for cooking later or completely cooked so they only need to be thawed and reheated.  Hearty stews, casseroles and lasagnas are great examples of meals you can freeze for later use. 

  • Stink bug management

    A stinky brown army is marching across Kentucky this fall, accidentally entering your homes and offices and they look for protective overwintering sites.

But they can leave a path of plant damage in their wake. You take charge and reclaim your structures and fields from these invaders.

    I was part of a group of kids who called a girl in our neighborhood “fungus face,” and in eighth grade I spread vicious rumors about a girl who I thought stole my boyfriend.
    Once I shoplifted a bottle of Compound W wart remover and a Yardley Lip Slicker lipstick from Thrifty Drug Store.

  • The Boy Scouts are no more

    By Richard Nelson
    The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) made waves when it announced that it’s accepting girls into its ranks. This latest identity crisis for the 107-year old organization may be the straw that sinks their original mission to train young boys to become men.
    BSA’s Chief Scout Executive Michael Surbaugh cited the need to “evolve how our programs meet the needs of families interested in positive and lifelong experiences for their children.” No mention was made by Scout leadership about how they will fulfill their commitment to boys.
