  • Prior to our marriage my husband had a well-tended, lush back yard. His backyard was approximately an acre. For the purposes of this story I will include the side yard since it has also experienced unrelenting attacks. He mowed and weeded regularly and things ran smoothly along their appointed courses. He had a routine that worked. That was before he met me. Shortly after we married things began to change. The changes weren’t dramatic at first. Things began to shift in a gradual, insidious manner. The first major change came in the form of horses.

  • It’s nearly Thanksgiving, and soon delicious, juicy turkeys will take center stage at many of our holiday meals. It’s so important that these birds are properly cooked and prepared, because we don’t want anyone to get sick from a food-borne illness.

  • It’s that time of year when talk turns to turkeys. Technically, there is only one breed of turkey, with several varieties, although many people incorrectly refer to these varieties as breeds.
    Turkeys are raised only for meat. They are not raised for egg production, as with chickens, ducks and quail. As a result, turkeys do not produce very many eggs.
    The most common type of commercial turkey raised in the United States is the Broad-Breasted White. It has a larger breast than the other varieties of turkeys.

  • I know stuff, although most of it is useless.
    Like, only 30 percent of people can flare their nostrils.
    I know that two-thirds of people tilt their heads to the right when they kiss and that supposedly chewing gum while cutting onions will keep you from crying. Since I don’t chew gum, I don’t know how true that is. I also don’t know why onions make you cry.
