  • Anyone who grew up in the Ohio River Valley is well-acquainted with erratic weather. We grumble about unseasonable cold, torrential rain and “the air you can wear” humidity. Fickle weather is as much a part of Kentucky as bluegrass and aristocratic thoroughbreds.

    No matter how inconvenient it may be, our weather is like an annoying relative. No matter how much of an irritant it may be, it holds a special place in our hearts because of its familiarity.

  • Springtime in Kentucky is a great time to get outside and enjoy the home garden. Every aspiring gardener should do a few things to have a successful season.

    Plan your garden on paper before you begin. Think about the things you want to grow and when they will be ready to harvest. Draw it out on paper so you can get a visual of what the garden might look like at planting and harvesting times.

    Select a good gardening site. You need to plan for a site that is in full sun, relatively level, well-drained, close to a water source and dries quickly from morning dew.

  • Every person goes through changes in life and I am no different.

    An opportunity has come to my family and we are moving back to Tennessee. I have been offered a Farm Manager position that I could not refuse. Most people knew how much I missed running cows on a daily basis and this is a great opportunity to go back to doing that. The owners are all in and have made our family part of theirs, however, change is hard and leaving friends is even harder.

  • Nobody loves eating doughnuts more than my great-niece, Lily.

    At 3, she eats them face-first, right into the top of the pink frosting and sprinkles (her favorite kind).

    Lily says, “I like them because they’re yummy.”

    What else is there to say?

    My niece Jennifer, Lily’s mom, sometimes posts videos of Lily eating a doughnut on Instagram, and as I watch I can’t help but think that God gets as much, maybe more, pleasure watching her as I do, or as Lily does eating.

  • Childhood trauma, or Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE), causes adult onset of chronic disease. It was determined by a group of neurobiologists at Harvard University and Rockefeller University that the toxic stress of chronic and severe trauma damages a child’s developing brain. It essentially stunts the growth of some parts of the brain, and fries the circuits with overdoses of stress hormones in others.
