  • Mysterious mushrooms...that's what I think whenever I see their strange fruits erupting from the ground.

    I find observing mushrooms nearly as dependable as observing birds. No matter the season or location of my walks, I usually find birds and mushrooms to look at. I won't say identify, especially when referring to mushrooms, because I rarely positively name a mushroom.

  • Pre-school Storytime

    These programs use books and music to present the young children with the concept that books, reading, and libraries are fun and enjoyed at all ages.

  • A friend of mine sent me the following information as she thought it would be of interest not only to me, but also to some of my readers. I do not know its origin, nor have I validated it as factual, but after reading it; I felt it had enough merit to share. My father believed in using foods to prevent, as well as to treat, deficiencies in the body; he did not rely on vitamins and pills of any kind for that purpose. I have always agreed with his philosophy, for the most part, and shall, therefore, leave you to research further and/or draw your own conclusions.

  • The Williston Veterinary Clinic in cooperation with Merial, a company that produces pharmaceutical and biological products for dogs, cats and other animals, has recently sponsored a program that gives money back to worthy causes. The program is called Paws for Charity and gives money back for Frontline, a product that controls fleas and tickets, and Heartgard, a product that prevents heartworm disease and controls hookworms and roundworms, that are sold.

    Williston Veterinary Clinic chose the Williston Animal Group as the recipient of the money that was given back by Merial.

  • It can be difficult finding things to write about in this column when I haven't made any trips to some different wildlife area. Winter can also pose a challenge even in Florida, because many plants have gone to seed and birds are not migrating through or nesting.

    One flock of birds is migrating now, made late by weather conditions. The whooping cranes, accompanied by their human escort, will be traveling through our area. By the time this column is published they may already be in Crystal River, their winter home. It seems they will have little time before heading north again.

  • The chilly January days make most of us want to cook or bake and eat foods we refer to as comfort foods; something that one might say makes you feel "warm and fuzzy" all over. These are dishes that will evoke a memory from childhood or of a special person or past event which helps to create that "warm and fuzzy" feeling.
