Around these parts we've learned that the locals have named our place, the Hansel and Gretel cottage. I'm not so sure, but it is unique opposed to the modern cabins built along the Huzzah. This one is from the 1930's.... Continue reading

Yesterday's trip into Cuba was fun. The Meal at Frisco's was ok, but not a place we will hurry back to. But, the Two Old Crows antique mall was fabulous and we could have stayed in there for a much... Continue reading

Today in Davisville Missouri we had what was the last of the tradesmen who have been hooking up Satellite TV, Internet, and today a landline phone. Each man was very congenial and knowedgeable as well as good humored. They were... Continue reading

KMOV's Doug Vaughn perfectly put into words and pictures my feeling about camping. I have never been a fan of this and laughed all the way through his rendition. He won't do it and neither will I. Also, I despise... Continue reading

Does anyone else get weary of all the programs wanting to do an update? Lately every device I own wants to update. And, if the past is any warning, any update will totally mess how we use our programs. Basically... Continue reading

One of the memories on Facebook which popped up today was an announcement that this was the first day of sweet corn sales at Keller Farms. This was in 2012. Last year they had sweet corn nearer the end of... Continue reading

Dale wanted to take an in home water cooler to our new place in southern Missouri. We have long had a 5 gallon water cooler in our kitchen because he drinks a lot of water and prefers these delivered bottles... Continue reading

I went out to our little vegetable garden this morning and was surprised to see some of the onions had grown tall scapes. Now, I am familiar with garlic scapes, but have never had onions with them. A scape is... Continue reading

Recently I've been noticing many lawns becoming filled with clover. This often happens around this time of year and the clover does not discriminate between lawns which are meticulously tended and those which are not. Often the most cared for... Continue reading

In the post below I was moaning about all the flies we've battled on our front porch. Well, this morning we took the bag down and it was grossly filled with tons of dead flies. We decided we can't live... Continue reading

For the first time that I can remember we have constant flies on our front porch flitting around the ceiling porch light and around the front door. We do not know what is attracting them, but it has become super... Continue reading

MidAmerica Airport near Scott Air Force Base schedules some commercial flights with Allegiant Airlines, a company I'm not really familiar with. It seems their main focus is on flights to and from Florida, Georgia (Savannah), Charleston,Phoenix, Las Vegas, and Punta... Continue reading

Some mornings the strangest things pop up on the news. Mondays seem to be the oddest for some reason. And today comes information on what besides dishes you can put in your dishwasher. Some are sensible like the knobs from... Continue reading

If you don't care for avocados you can skip this, but if you're like many of us, you do. I especially like them in gaucamole and sliced on sandwiches and in salads. My daughter sent me a photo of a... Continue reading

Dale was heading over to the seminary this morning to teach a class and he asked me if I'd run over to Kruta Bakery and pick up some donuts to bring into the maintenance workers. They work very hard in... Continue reading

This weekend is the time for Collinsville's annual Horseradish Festival. Since we are the horseradish capitol of the world, it only makes sense to celebrate the root. Last year it was cancelled due to Coronavirus, but gearing up for a... Continue reading

This must be the day of the week many people consider cleaning more heavily than mere dusting and sweeping because I came across any number of articles on what we should clean but don't. The first I noticed was the... Continue reading

Since we got back from Davisville, Missouri, two of my email accounts will not send mail to their in-boxes. This is driving me crazy and I have found no way to fix this. First it was one of my AOL... Continue reading

This spring I planted peas, a vegetable we have never eaten as long as we've been married. Dale has never seemed to have an interest in them and I was brought up on canned peas which I never liked. So... Continue reading
