  • State works to aid veterans in cutting through red tape

    One of the ongoing challenges our country faces is making sure our veterans receive the full benefits they have rightfully earned.

    Unfortunately, as we discovered during a legislative meeting earlier this month, there are still some who are either unaware of what is available or who have become mired in bureaucracy.  The good news is that, thanks to the Kentucky Department of Veterans Affairs, we are making great strides in closing these twin gaps.

  • Explore the varieties of peppers by making hot sauce

    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.
