Bethlehem program planned for Dec. 2-4
A few weeks ago my youngest daughter came home for a quick visit on her way to a wedding and a football game.
At 27, she has long outgrown her terrible teen years, although she still has a bit of an edge. That’s just Laura.
When she was 14 or 15 she was into a grunge stage, very Kurt Cobain-Pearl Jam-Stone Temple Pilots. She’d wear pants big enough to fit two sumo wrestlers and heavy, bump-toe combat boots — to church. Hey, I was just glad she came to church back then and I wasn’t about to quibble over what she wore.
Mt. Hermon Baptist Church will be holding a Fall Festival, Nov. 7, 2010, at 2 p.m. at Kings Ridge Road, Hwy, 1226, in Bedford. Come join them for hay rides, hotdogs and marshmallow roasts, with inflatables and games for the children.
As you read this article today, I know you have more important things to think about than beetles, but have you ever wondered why there are so many different species of beetles? There are a lot of them, and the why of it has enthralled biologists for years. You might even say it has “bugged” them.
