PAINT LICK —
It is a chilly, yet cloudy Monday morning, this Nov. 19, and as I look out into the street here above, friends, I see the most incredible little tree that sits alone, just waiting for the lighting of Christmas in Paint Lick Ky.
The small spruce was planted by two gardeners from Baldwin Farms, friends of Hal and Yvonne Davis.
It sits on the corner of the Community Arts Center in hopes that everyone will turn out the evening of Nov. 30, as the lighting takes place.
I hope everyone can find time to be with us.
The arts center is the place to be in the coming month of December. You can call 925-2741 for information.
You just can’t help but notice both windows at Copperhead Consulting Env. I did on Friday night. Vickie has done a wonderful job with the trees.
First, Happy Thanksgiving to everyone out there. I pray your holiday will be filled to the measure of His respect.
We had a great Thanksgiving meal on Sunday at Paint Lick Christian Church. It sure was nice to see so many people and they brought a bounty of food!
Especially nice to see those who seldom get to be with us.
Thanks to so many for all the nice fixings would not be saying enough, but I hope they will join us when they can on any Sunday morning. Everyone is welcome.
I see Charlie Gruen has an extra nice Chevy Impala sitting out for sale.
I know, for certain, that Charlie is a good mechanic and I believe this car would make someone’s wish for Christmas a happy one. Call Charlie, 925-2206.
This Friday is, I hope, a happy birthday for Devon on Gillespie Pike.
Then, on Sunday, and in the coming week, two beautiful ladies, Shirley Hawley and Bonnie Lamb, will share a birthdate.
Happy birthday to Ashley Ramsey, grand daughter of Druscilla Davidson, on Nov. 30.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and may God bless.

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.
Saturated fat consumption leads to abdominal fat
New research from Uppsala University shows that eating more saturated fat in the diet causes an increase in the amount of fat stored in the abdominal area in comparison with extra consumption of polyunsaturated fat.
County’s oldest consignment sale begins today
The Little Ones’ Consignment Sale, Madison County’s oldest semi-annual sale of its kind, is open to the public 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. today (Friday) and 8 a.m. to noon Saturday at the multi-ministry center behind United Methodist Church, West Main Street, Richmond. Marked items are half price on Saturday.
There’s more to do at the Village Trough
“I wish there was more to do here.”
Do you ever find yourself saying this sentence as you sit there bored out of your mind? Have you heard others ask it?
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.
Taste test Thursday
The sun is shining, but the chill has returned, so I hope you made the most of the warm, sunny weather this weekend.
The spring greens are being as tentative as the warm temperatures, but there is talk of lettuce being harvested and a continued trickle of kale, pea shoots, miner’s lettuce and spinach. To make room for the spring harvests, winter squash and sweet potatoes have been marked down to $1/pound and pumpkins are only 50 cents/pound.
Buttercups in grazed pastures
One of the signs that spring has arrived is when the yellow flowers of buttercup begin to appear, but it’s during the winter months that the vegetative growth of buttercup takes place.
As a cool season weed, this plant often flourishes in overgrazed pasture fields with poor stands of desirable forages. In fact, many fields that have dense buttercup populations are fields heavily grazed by animals during the fall through the early spring months.
Make a difference this summer, volunteer at 4-H Camp
On June 30 more than 200 Madison County kids will load a bus headed for four days and three nights of fun at 4-H Summer Camp.
Campers will have a chance to hike, swim, dance and spend time learning about the environment, their friends and themselves.
And we need your help to make it possible!
A whole lot going on
