Happy New Year!
It’s a beautiful Tuesday morning here in Paint Lick with an amazing sunshine that is going to warm everything all during this week.
Cooler temperatures with some rain showers are expected by the weekend, but it looks like we will get to enjoy a few warm days.
I intend to get out and clean up around our house where the wintry winds have blown in all kinds of stuff.
Paint Lick Community Arts Center is looking for those of you who would are interested in the “art of quilting.”
For eight Saturdays, the center will feature classes in which you can learn how to do something special for yourself and, in turn, can hand down the art through future generations.
This past weekend was wonderful at the center with numerous quilts and quilting patterns, adorning the walls.
Also , they are asking for anyone with an interest in working with clay.
If you are interested in such a venture, you can call Hal and Yvonne at the center, 925-2741. I know you will be pleased.
Paint Lick’s Three-Fold Meats will be receiving a fresh, not frozen, load of beef this weekend, so stop by and take a look or call them at 925-2172.
Our grocery is doing well, too, according to the stops made by local and out-of-town people.
I found the less time spent in town at the bigger stores is paying off. I actually have not done any shopping and I don’t spend a large amount whenever I do cash purchases.
I think I’m saving some by staying home more and eating from what we already have on hand. That’s good, huh?
The flu and symptoms of flu are raging all over, so try and use prevention.
Staying well involves keeping your hands clean and getting enough rest. Keeping the top of your head warm and dry is a great idea, also. Layered clothing on cold, wet days when going outdoors is good.
Happy birthday to nephew Terry Cheeks of the Smokehouse Grill on Jan. 12.
Paint Lick Post Office is changing its hours of opening business. It will be open each weekday and Saturdays from 9 to 11 a.m.
May God bless.

I was just thinking about the ordeal I’ve been going through since Sept. 19.

Burning bridges and the importance of relationships
“Congratulations on your new job!” You tell a co-worker who announced she would be leaving in a couple of weeks. “Where are you going?” You ask her.
“I’ve landed a job that will put this place to shame! I am so excited about leaving here. This is going to be a great chance to advance my career,” the co-worker tells you.
Ensuring children develop a habit brushing their teeth
“Are you sure you brushed your teeth?” the father asked his son. His son solemnly nodded. His father said, “Let me smell your breath.” The son obligingly opened his mouth. Finally, the father said, “I need to check and see if your toothbrush is wet.”
This type of exchange happens in many households as children often do not brush their teeth, even when told to do so. This nightly inquisition can occur less frequently if parents establish a habit in their children to brush their teeth.

Well, there is something more to do now that Village Trough in Berea is staging shows with local and regional talent and preparing to open as a full dining and entertainment venue.
Let’s have a Mardi Gras party in Kentucky
It’s the time of year when the people in New Orleans celebrate a festival called Mardi Gras. Many states now do the same. Some call it “Fat Tuesday” which I have never understood till I went to New Orleans (five times) and saw all of the excitement for myself.
Beat the winter blues with meatballs
When it’s this cold outside it’s nice to warm up with some good comfort food.
I can think of few things more wonderful than the smell of simmering meatballs coming from the kitchen while I cuddle with my two young children, and a few good books, on a brisk winter day.
