  • Hello once again, my friends. It is certainly good to be back to writing and sharing some culinary ideas. As I’m looking out the window, it’s in the 90’s outside and frankly, I am ready for some cooler weather and heartier cooking.

    As most of you know, I have a love affair with cooking. I love food. Plain and simple. Not just food for the sake of our bodies needing it, which of course we all do, but more for what it provides for our souls and especially how it brings people together.

  •  The flash flooding we have experienced recently can take a toll on a vegetable garden, and gardeners should consider how floodwaters could affect the garden.

    The first consideration for the gardener would be the source of the floodwaters. Rain water or water from a potable water source or uncontaminated source does not carry the same potential hazards as water from a river, septic field or other potentially contaminated source.

  • As a young boy I did not have any pets, and as I grew up and had my own family I had no anticipation of a pet or pets showing up in our household. Then, we met him one dayat the campground, a lonely cat that somehow attached himself to our family and our Kentucky Fried Chicken.

    Yes, this copper and white-colored cat would not leave our campsite, even after the food was gone. Our two boys started asking, “Can we keep him, Dad? Can we?”
