    Contributed by Jennifer Dawson Photo by Naim Benjelloun from Pexels American’s are on average getting fatter each year, with nearly 35% of the population now considered obese. Obesity isn’t just about waist size. It is now classed as a chronic disease in the U.S. There can be no doubt that it is crucial that the country tackles this growing epidemic. While...
  2. Garbage Day

    Contributed by RL It’s like any other day except it is the designated day to clean up because well that’s what we do in spring especially when the kids are coming to visit.  We have to make room for the children and send down the road a few of the items that are cluttering up the house that were essential...
  3. The Park

    Contributed by RL We woke up early with the birds singing, blue sky and a soft breeze. When we stepped out the back door into the large yard we knew it was going to be a beautiful day. You know the day when you need to wear sunscreen, but aww, it is just such a pretty day, why bother. Soon...
  4. The Cooing of the Dove

    Contributed by RL As you go out onto the porch or sit in the yard do you notice?  It’s the different sounds of spring that come drifting into your ears and eyes, if we are paying attention. You know it’s the soft sound of the dripping ice off the shed roof or the overhead searching call of geese as they...
  5. Rain Drops Keep Falling

    Contributed by RL As I look out the window I watch as these little rain drops ripple in the puddles just outside. In the gloom of damp which engulfs us today I am drawn back to when the grandchildren were visiting last week. A grand time was had by all in this transition time of winter to spring. Snow to...
  6. Let Go!

    Contributed by RL 2 person 72 hour kit It’s starting to melt!   There is even some lawn showing in the yard and if I am not mistaken there is a hint of green on the borders by the house of that lawn. The sun comes out and the birds sing.  There’s mud.  You can hear the geese as they flock...
  7. The Ritual of a Haircut

    Contributed by RL It’s funny how we are all different in our own ways.  When one is at the barber, while waiting your turn, if you are not reading a magazine you are watching those who come into the shop who also want to get a haircut.  Lots of times those who come in are people you know and it...
  8. Spring Forward

    Contributed by RL It happened again this last week on Sunday. That time of the year when we have to turn our clocks ahead one hour. We awaken and head to the kitchen to start breakfast so everyone will not be late for church. Why is it so dark we wonder?  (https://www.snopes.com/news/2017/03/11/origins-daylight-saving-time/) We start the crock pot for lunch today...
  9. Treasure Hunting!

    Contributed by RL Maybe it’s because I have been watching a little too much of the old pirate movies that I am thinking of treasure.  You know the bounty that was liberated from sailing ships in days of yore whose treasures of gold and jewels just seemed to disappear without a trace.  Rumors abound of a secret Island and X...
  10. Remember Show and Tell

    Contributed by RL Those were the days! Excitement abounded as that special day in school arrived and we boxed up that most wonderful of all items to show our teacher and friends.  Remember how we could hardly contain the enthusiasm as we jumped for joy at being able to show everyone our little treasure. (https://kreativeinlife.com/10-creative-show-and-tell-ideas-for-kids/) There were dolls, model airplanes...
