  • “If you don’t like the weather wait a few minutes and it will change.” I firmly believe that this statement should be added to the signs marking our state lines.

    l Soak the ham for 4 to 12 hours in the refrigerator.
    l Cover with water and boil the ham for 20 to 25 minutes per pound.

  • 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.
    Many of us never envisioned we would be doing what we are doing to make a living at this stage in our lives.
    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.”
