  • Using fewer ingredients in your dishes still offers delicious taste and nutrition. There are few kitchen nightmares that are worse than finding a recipe that sounds so amazing, and then looking at the list of ingredients needed that seems longer than your phone’s contact list!

     “Be careful what you say in a cornfield. There are plenty of ears.”

                — a standard Americanism.

  • The End of America is upon us.

    In just a few more days, it’s coming to Brunswick County.

    At least, that’s the name of the Philadelphia-based trio performing in the latest Listen Up Brunswick County show at 7:30 p.m. next Sunday in the Virginia Williamson Events Center in Odell Williamson Auditorium at Brunswick Community College.

    Doors open at 7 p.m.

    The End of America, their name a tribute to Jack Kerouac, consists of Brendon Thomas, James Downes and Trevor Leonard blending three-part vocals ala rock and Americana.

  • Having in mind family connections and acquaintances, I was eager to read a little book written by the director of Siena Retreat Center, a woman of Polish descent. In my reading “Seasons of the Slavic Soul: A Quest for Authentic Polish Spirituality,” I hoped to discover intricacies, connect more deeply to them, and thus to those who enjoy this heritage. My eagerness harvested delicious fruit.

  • Bloody and discolored urine is a common reason cat owners seek veterinary help. It’s incredibly upsetting to see drops of blood in a litter box, on bedding nor on the floor. Sometimes you can’t see the blood until it is examined with a microscope or detected on urinalysis.
    Fortunately, most cats experiencing blood in their urine have straightforward causes that have relatively simple treatments. The two major causes of blood in a cat’s urine are cystitis and feline lower urinary tract disorder, or FLUTD.

  • The seventh annual NC Catch Summit was recently held in Southport. This two-day event was sponsored by the NC Catch folks and hosted here in Brunswick County by Brunswick Catch and N.C. Cooperative Extension.

  • Spring is a time of transition in the garden as the cold and wind of March give way to the pleasant temperatures and light breezes of April. Milder temperatures of the last couple of days have kicked the flower show up a notch as the flowering dogwoods and azaleas take center stage. This is truly a glorious time in the garden.
    My retirement from North Carolina Cooperative Extension is official. Stepping away on April Fool’s Day was certainly appropriate.
