  • One of the things I did at the beginning of this new year is organize and file away resource information. While reacquainting myself with this literature, I found some bits worth passing along.

    One article, written by Anne Mackay, features winter gardening. While northern gardens may remain untouched for several months, here in Florida it's already time to think about spring plants. Mackay's article focuses on native Florida wildflowers.

  • Thomas Edison once said "Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work." Don't miss this opportunity to assist the Levy County Public Library System in the formation of their Long Range Plan for 2008-2013. It will only look like work as it will be as easy as sharing your opinions.

  • In my younger life, I never expected to end up in Florida. Now during the winter holidays I've come to appreciate Florida's appeal. On Christmas I walked in the next door woods, enjoying the soft light on olive green live oak leaves, russets of turkey oaks, golden tans of rushes and brown to gray bark of tree trunks. Bluejays called in tree tops; chickadees chittered in lower branches.

  • Whether you are at home all day, as Jim and I now are, or are still a part of the working force, nothing is more satisfying or comforting than to sit down to a simple supper of a bowl of steaming hot soup (this includes chili) with muffins, cornbread or homemade bread.

    It seems that since Jim retired last June we have been on a campaign to do all the things that we never had time or energy to get to before then. First it was to get the 5th wheel ready and up to Indiana, where we spent September and October. Once home it was time to begin holiday preparations.
