  • In all of our lives fear is useless and trust is needed

    Envy and jealousy plague the lives of good people. Yes, good people! Goodhearted individuals try hard to dispel those feelings but they persist in tormenting us, no matter how virtuous we are.
    It could be we are troubled by an inability to believe in our own lovableness. Perhaps we suffer from poor self-images.
    Whatever the reason, we frequently look around, see the luck and fortune others seem to enjoy and feel a twinge of envy. We crave what they have and long to change places with them.

    Special to the Beacon
    Have you ever watched a real expert do a job with such expertise and style that it makes you feel good just being there? Well, I had that experience when I saw Sue Hunady teach during a final rewards ceremony for a group of middle school students that had just completed three days of hard work and fun at a summer fine art camp.

  • Browning meat is an essential step when preparing a stew

    Many years ago when I was single, I thought I knew everything about cooking, so I attempted to make my first beef stew.
    I had friends coming over in about an hour or so and I was short on time. The recipe said to brown the meat, a messy and time-consuming step, so I thought.
    I decided to ignore this instruction and just skip to the next step, just dumping the raw beef chunks into the stewing liquid.
