     I think we all have the opportunity to attend potluck or covered dish dinners. You know what I’m talking about…an event where everyone brings a dish to share. But, are you sharing more than the food?

  • What is this mystery plant?

     By John Nelson

     “Winter lies too long in country towns; hangs on until it is stale and shabby, old and sullen,”Willa Cather, My Antonia.

     

    Winter. Winter. Winter. On and on. And it probably won’t even snow here where I am. I have to admit that even though it is cold and nippy for this child of summer, our southern winters always include some beautiful, sparkling days. And the big trees don’t seem to mind winter too much.

    Thick jackets quickly replaced T-shirts and shorts when winter storm Octavia showed up. It seems as if the wind and the cold will never end.

  • Golf fitness by Teri Daly: It’s working

    Each year, I make a bunch of New Year’s resolutions and by March I’ve forgotten them all. Losing weight, getting fit, lowering my golf handicap, creating delicious gourmet meals for Gene, reading more books, writing more books … the list goes on and on and as the days go by I slowly lose my resolve.

    This year is different and I’m delighted. I vowed to get fitter and to get my golf scores down — and so far, it’s working.
