  • Renegade ducklings

    My husband took me to Washington D.C. as an eighth anniversary trip. I packed everything I thought we could possibly need; everything except rain gear. We had one small umbrella but everything else was thoroughly absorbent; possibly ultra-absorbent.

    Washington D.C. has incredible traffic around the clock. The streets are never empty and the lights are always red. The only way to get around is by scooter, bike, foot or fervent wishes. We dropped the car in a parking garage; a garage that held our car hostage; and set out to hit the town.

  • Things to consider if you want to produce your own eggs

    Backyard chicken flocks are popular in all areas of Kentucky. If you want to have a successful flock and produce your own eggs, preparation and education are essential.

    Not everyone is suited for keeping a poultry flock. Make sure you check that your local city and county ordinances allow backyard flocks. Some ordinances require a minimum amount of land, and some subdivisions even have their own rules.

  • Stand firm in the fire

    All of us, at some point, will go through a tough time. The truth is we’re either heading into a trial, in a trial, or coming out of a trial. I don’t know what it might be for you, but I’d guess you are probably battling one fire or another. It could be a financial, health-related, relational or employment. We all face fires.

  • 'Bring your brokenness'

    A week or so ago, I went to a celebration of life service at a church I’d never been to before.

    Behind the altar was a huge glass wall with a huge glass mosaic crucifix in the middle.

    While I waited for the service to start, I studied the crucifix, the intricate pieces of colored glass fit together to form Christ’s body.

    Unlike a jigsaw puzzle, these glass pieces didn’t fit together smoothly and perfectly. The edges appeared to be rough. Perhaps the artist had used broken bits and pieces? I couldn’t tell.

  • Honoring the Commonwealth's first responders

    They may have different uniforms and job duties, but one quality binds all first responders: They immediately run toward an emergency when the first impulse is to run away.

    They deserve recognition every day, but spring and fall are when we officially set aside time to commemorate their invaluable work and sacrifices. This week, for example, recognizes police officers, while May 4 was International Firefighters’ Day and early October is when the country holds National Fallen Firefighters Memorial Weekend.
