    Since re-modeling the old Liston house begun in 2013, including attempts to increase energy efficiency such as foam insulations, better windows, and white metal roofs, an interest grew to incorporate renewable energy technology.

  • I have a horse named Biscuit. He’s a flashy lad with a mind of his own. He has a stripe down his back and stripes on his legs. He has a white star on his forehead and black tips on his ears. He’s even managed to sneak a bit of white below his striped, black legs.

  • Since my husband and I have no beach getaway plans this summer, I thought it might be fun to take Sunday mornings and visit some out-of-town churches.

    So, a few weeks ago I researched online for churches that look interesting, making a list of ones to visit. The challenge: finding churches we both find interesting — we each look for different things in a church.
