  • Remember when He found you

    A number of years ago I wrote a story about a man who was as lost as a soul could be.

    When I met him, he was a pastor, although he didn’t look like a typical pastor, if there is such a thing.

    I remember his shaved head and “ROUGH” tattooed across the back of his neck. I also remember thinking he was one scary looking dude.

    His wasn’t a sanitized, heartwarming story, although it started out that way.

  • Traveling

    I’ve always harbored a fascination with hotel rooms.

    Upon check-in I spend a good bit of time searching the room. I start at the kitchenette. I poke around in a diminutive refrigerator that would fit perfectly in the treetop home of cookie baking elves. My son has one in his room so I don’t know why I’m so charmed by the tiny hotel kitchenette fridge.

  • Kentucky-grown asparagus, onions help healthy diets

    One of the sure signs of spring in Kentucky is the appearance of our own Kentucky Asparagus. We enjoy its fresh flavor from April through May. This versatile vegetable can be eaten raw, lightly boiled, steamed, grilled, stir fried or baked.

    Asparagus was first grown more than 2,000 years ago in the eastern Mediterranean region and was brought to America by the early colonists. It is the slender shoot of a perennial plant that ranges from pencil thin to about one-half inch in thickness. Our Kentucky farmers’ markets offer asparagus picked at its peak tenderness.
