  • We are halfway through the month of February, have you started getting those tugs of Spring Fever? The spring gardening catalogs have already inundated our mail, which makes me daydream about warmer days. I probably have gone through them at least five or six times at this point, especially the section on herbs. They are okay dried, but I just love them fresh. I could almost smell them through the pages of the catalog.

  • Every Sunday afternoon in Placentia, Calif., the Watson family gathers for Family Day.

    Although informal — most every Watson comes either barefoot or wearing flip flops — it has its own set of rules and rituals.

    According to Jennifer (Watson) Fiamengo, the rules mainly pertain to the food served. If they grill hamburgers or hot dogs, her mother MUST make her family-famous macaroni salad. If they have Mexican food, her mother MUST make seven-layer dip.

  • Thousands of landowners across Kentucky have received state assistance through the Kentucky Soil Erosion and Water Quality Cost Share program.  This program assists landowners with implantation of best management practices to preserve the soil and water resources on their property. 

    Since the program began, more than $113 million has been approved for use in all of Kentucky’s 120 counties.  The sign up period for upcoming projects has been announced as Feb. 1-28.

  • Do you have a camera that you still haven’t figured out? The new digital cameras are mini-computers and can be quite complicated.
