  • In my family we have two new babies: Lily Aaron and Zachary Jack. 

    Lily is my niece Jennifer’s third daughter and Zach is my nephew Shane’s third son. Both babies were born just a few weeks apart, Lily in July and Zachary in August. My sister now has six grandchildren. 

    If Lily had been a boy she would be Jack Aaron. 

    Jack is my dad’s name. Aaron is Lily’s dad Marc’s middle name. 

    Got all that?

  • Hello, once again, my friends. It seems amazing sometimes how fast time flies. It seems like just yesterday I was writing about foods that can be ground up, owing to the fact that my son wasn’t able to chew after having jaw surgery. I must say, it’s a weight off the old mind being able to cook away once again without regard to how the food will grind up. And, along with that, he’s finally back to eating some good ole spicy foods, which brings me to the point of this month’s article.

  • August is quickly coming to a close, and as we look over the past month, we have experienced much for dry weather compared to July’s rainy month.  Summer heat and dry weather can take a toll on your flower garden, but with a little extra care, it is possible to bring it back to life for a few more weeks of vibrant color and texture.
