    Such shocking pink in the middle of the hot, dry woods! You wouldn’t expect to see it, yet that is where our psammophyte grows.

  •  My wife and I enjoy making our weekly jaunt to the local farmers market for lettuce, tomatoes or whatever. Each time we go, I notice these really large, overgrown white radishes, called Daikon radishes. They are one of the largest radishes, ranging from six to 15 inches in length, and two to three inches in diameter. A bunch of three are less than $1.50, so it seems like a great deal. But now what would I do with them?

     

  •  Keith and Rebecca Lockamy of Supply are the parents of a son, Thomas Keith Lockamy, born at 3:57 p.m. May 15 at New Hanover Regional Medical Center in Wilmington weighing 4 pounds, 5 ounces and measuring 16-1/2 inches in length.

All I can ever think of is how the coach now has cold wet sugary sticky hair and clothes to contend with throughout the celebration. I guess I don’t fully appreciate this Gatorade baptism ritual.

    What impels a religion columnist to write about scammers and their nefarious occupation? It’s a good question that commands investigation and response. As I was pondering both query and reply, an interesting item was announced during the nightly news. The story involved the growing number of scams being perpetrated, particularly on senior citizens. Obviously this is both a disturbing reality and one that causes concern about the state of our union as a nation, a people, specifically a people of God.

    “Why hasn’t he returned my call?” “Did you hear what she said?” “I must have done something wrong.”

  •  Ever wonder who first thought of eating a tomato with fresh basil, or combining sage with onion in a stuffing, or lamb with rosemary and garlic? I know … who cares? But most of the flavor-enhancing herbs we enjoy today were prized by the earliest cultures to improve the flavor of often dull and limited meals.
