  • Consider donations as spring cleaning gets under way

    With spring comes spring cleaning.  The Carroll County Public Library provides a service that can assist you with this process. 

    We accept donations.  The staff would revolt if I did not clarify this just a little bit. We accept gently used books, magazines, DVDs and music CDs that have been stored indoors. We don’t mean to be picky, but we don’t like the critters that usually come with items that have been kept in storage units or sheds. 

  • Crock pot dish makes an easy pork chops meal

    I certainly do enjoy being a grandparent. We have had the greatest time in the past month spending time with all five of our grandchildren. 

    Since four of them live in Georgia, we don’t get to see them as often as we like.  This year they were able to visit us at our Florida condo while on spring break, along with their parents. The other grandchild was also on break in Florida, but at Disney World, so we went for the day and had a great time.

  • Men appeal for leniency as we honor our mothers

    Dear Mothers,

    As usual, this Mother’s Day we offer confession and ask for leniency.

    The “we” of this confession are men. You may have heard of us.

    We are usually referred to as he or him, Adam, son, husband, dad, brother, chap, mate, or, among friends, baron. We are those persons most likely to wear the same clothes two days in a row and then expect you to wash those clothes. We are the people of whom a T-shirt was once made: “A woman without a man is like a fish without a bicycle.” Remember us now?
