January has come to a close with gusty, spring-like weather and storms (Tuesday night into Wednesday) and Wednesday night into Thursday. Friday we should be facing winter-like weather with below freezing temperatures again (possibly) snow!
What one word could one use for this winter?
Hmm ... roller coaster?
That’s two, or a hyphenated one word, it has been an unusual, unpredictable one for sure!
There’s not much going on out this way except the virus/bug thing is still visiting families and lingering around for a few weeks it seems.
Stomach “bugs” seem to be on the wane. These ailments seem to get better, then come back with the same initial force.
Have you noticed that pattern around your place?
Happy birthday wishes go out this week (today, actually,) to Kevin Dennis!
Reminders: Flatwoods Christian Church is still collecting cans for the benefit of Habitat for Humanity – just bring them to the picnic shelter and they’ll be picked up. Also, there are DVD recordings of each Sunday (and special) service for anyone who wants one. Just cal the church.
Choubert and Bernadette Remy lead the church work and the Russell School at Gallette Goureau northeast of Port-au-Prince, Haiti.
The mission receives donations to the following funds: General Operating Fund, Church Building Fund, Bible Institute Fund and Feed Program for Children.
If you would like to help, send donations to: Haiti Christian Mission, P.O.Box 127, Waco, KY 40385.
There’s still time to purchase a memorial brick for the Waco Elementary Walking Trail.
Just call Lorena Webb at the school and let your wishes be known.
We’re still trying to locate the missing bricks, already engraved. Have you seen them or know where they are?
If so, we’d love to hear from you – just let Lorena know (as above.)
That’s about it for this week. Have a great one.
I almost forgot – groundhog watching day is Saturday!

Eat local and eat with the seasons
This week marks the 44th anniversary of Earth Day, and what could be more important to our survival than clean air, clean water and clean food?
Proper care enables planting of Easter lilies
Did you receive or purchase an Easter lily? If so, be sure to treat it right and you will be able to plant it outside this spring.
4-H Camping Season Nears
Hopefully, we have seen the last of the snow for the year, so now is the time for young people and their parents to begin making plans for an annual summer ritual, 4-H Camp.
These things cause me concern for the future
I was just thinking the other day about things that are happening in this country that do not bode well for the future.
Cruisin’ with the Oldies
With the sound of classic songs wafting through the air Saturday, hundreds of people took advantage of the summer-like temperatures and turned out for the Kirksville Community Center car show.
It’s egg party time
I love this time of the year because eggs really do go down in price during the Easter season. I have some new recipes on how to fix eggs besides the coloring part.
Where’s the beef?
Today, the American consumer has more money to spend on the widest variety of foods than at any other time in our history.
Easter bunny's ‛eggbeater’ will fly eggs to Richmond
Who knew the Easter bunny could fly?
Skeptics can come to the Easter Eggstravaganza in Richmond’s Irvine-McDowell Park on Saturday to see for themselves. However, the bunny still doesn’t fly in bad weather. But on Monday, temperatures in the 60s with partly cloudy skies were predicted for Saturday.
We old folks have unique experiences
A friend sent this to me by e-mail, and I thought my readers would enjoy it.
