  • Crock pot dish makes an easy pork chops meal

    I certainly do enjoy being a grandparent. We have had the greatest time in the past month spending time with all five of our grandchildren. 

    Since four of them live in Georgia, we don’t get to see them as often as we like.  This year they were able to visit us at our Florida condo while on spring break, along with their parents. The other grandchild was also on break in Florida, but at Disney World, so we went for the day and had a great time.

  • Icing gives strawberry cake an update for Easter

    Easter was such a wonderful day, in spite of the damp, rainy weather.  Having just returned three days prior from our long vacation in Florida, it was nice to prepare a wonderful family meal. 

    We had a great time with our daughter, her fiancé and our grandson just talking, eating and playing games.

  • Clerks honored for donor awareness

    On April 13, Gov. Steven L. Beshear recognized the Circuit Court Clerks of Kentucky for their efforts to raise awareness about organ donation. He urged all Kentuckians to join the Kentucky Organ Donor Registry.

    “The fact is, you can be a hero. You can save a life, and not just one but many,” Beshear said.

    About 110,000 people in the United States, and more than 700 Kentuckians, are currently waiting for life-saving organ transplants. Kentucky’s Circuit Court Clerks have been active in promoting organ donation since 1992.
