  • (Editor’s note: This is Nancy Kennedy’s annual psalm of thanksgiving, a tradition she thinks started in 2000. She didn’t keep track.) 

    Dear God,

    Here I am again, with a blank page in front of me, attempting to put into 750 words or less all the ways in which I am thankful. Where do I even begin?

    Thank you, Lord, that I belong to you. Thank you for the gifts of grace, repentance and faith, for forgiveness, for mercy, especially for your mercy that’s a continual source of healing for my sin-tainted soul.

  • Applications will be available on Friday, Dec. 6 for the 2013 Carroll County Agricultural Investment Program at the Carroll County Extension Office.

  • Cold. That’s the only word I can think of to start this. OK, it’s probably not the only word, but it’s certainly the first one that comes to mind. That being said, we have to eat even when it’s cold and thus I’m moving right along to more pertinent things.

    Each month I talk about recipes and ways to design them. It’s always been that way with me. I’m happy to share the ideas on how I develop new recipes. 

    I subscribe to the, “teach a person to fish” methodology.
