  • Scrapple is said to be one of the first pork foods made in America. It’s a flexible dish and makes an excellent breakfast alongside poached eggs and sausage, or serve it for lunch with stewed vegetables or just have it as a snack.

    I’m sure there are some of you who may have never had the pleasure of breakfasting on scrapple…a fried slice of pork-mush. Sometimes called Philadelphia scrapple, it is said to have actually originated in the farmlands of eastern Pennsylvania.

  • Charlie Stokes of Holden Beach spent his lifetime traveling the world, first in the military and then for the State Department. He has been in 85 different countries in Europe, Asia, South American and Australia. When it comes to travel in strange and exotic places, Stokes is an expert.

  • Little Taffy had a hard time in her previous life and now needs a new home with lots of love. She is Dachshund/Chihuahua mix weighing 16 pounds, and she’s 9 years old. She is housebroken, very intelligent, has the Doxie hunting personality and loves to be with someone. Since Paws Place had to repair her rear knee, it would be best if she were the only dog in the house with no little children. She has many good years left, so please give her a chance.

  • The color pink is everywhere today. It has become synonymous with showing support for breast cancer awareness. Now, women can wear their support around the clock with SO.CAP.USA Hair Extension’s Pink Hair For Hope program, which is taking place through Oct. 31 at Totally Chic Salon and Spa in Calabash.

    For a $10 donation to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, anyone can wear their support by receiving a free pink hair extension.

  • The transition to cooler weather of autumn is upon us. While that means you’ll have less grass to mow and more time to spend watching football, there are some things you should and shouldn’t be doing in the garden as the days grow shorter.

    If you have an automated irrigation system and you’re not leaving town for extended periods, consider shutting it off. Shorter and cooler days significantly reduce the need for irrigation on established plants. If you miss the rain, you can always cycle the system on manually.

  • October is a great time to find beautiful material in the garden that will complement your dried arrangements.

    Many grasses, pods, cones, and even gumballs can spark up your fall decorations. Before they go into hiding for six months, now is a good time to mark the places where your summer bulbs and herbaceous perennials are planted.
