Remember Your Pets During Your Independence Day Celebrations

This week while you and everyone else are celebrating our nation's independence, remember the pets!  Keep them safe and from getting too stressed out.  The noises of fireworks will especially rattle the calmest of pets.  I reserved a "safe" place for our dogs long ago in the house basement.  I have an 8' X 16' kennel built especially for the dogs where they know they are safe.

Bee Colonies and Populations are on the Decline and I Feel Guilty

I was mowing the other afternoon and my lawn (weeds primarily) had grown fast and thick thanks to all of the rain we've had.  I had lots of clover, which added a light-colored softness to the yard.  As I mowed, I noticed all the many bees that were busy harvesting the pollen from the clover; bumblebees, honey bees and other little creatures that look like bees.

Father’s Day – Celebration, Reflection and Purpose

Whenever Father's Day rolls around my thoughts always turn to Dad, who isn't physically here any more.  He passed away several years ago.  I think of him many other days, as well, but especially on Father's Day.  It's a day that I'm reminded of all the things he taught me, spoken and unspoken, both good and bad.  It's a day of reflection for me, as a dad, just as much as it's a day of celebration for all the "dads" in the family.

Jenny’s Melt-in-Your-Mouth Banana Cream Pie Recipe

Out of all the wonderfully palate-pleasing creations Jenny cooks and bakes, this one is my very favorite!  To me every slice is a slice of heaven and once I take a bite of this pie, I always have the hardest time putting the fork down.  I'm not exaggerating when I write that I could, literally, devour a whole banana cream pie.  I don't - but I could!

Text Your Friends, Family and Now Your Appliances!

I know I’m not alone (in the 50+ age group) when I say that I wasn’t one of the first to text other people on my phone.  Actually, I was quite the hold out, and still am, when it comes to our changing technology.  I had a flip phone when most people had iPhones.  I began to text years after most people did.  I joined facebook only because my job required it.  So how long will I hold out on the latest technology?  Beginning this year, we’ll not only be able to text our friends and family, or in other words, people, but our appliances, as well!

Warrick County Farmers Market Opens June 7

I love to visit farmers markets.  They bring back fond memories of my younger days when my Grandmother would drive my entire family around to visit the roadside stands.  Then we would feast on fresh corn, beans, peaches and the like.  That's why I'm excited that farmers markets all around Evansville and the Tri-State are opening up for business, and that includes the Warrick County Farmers Market,

Plenty of Superfoods Available to Eat to Stay Healthy this Summer

No, you won't see any foods in the grocery store wearing capes or superhero outfits, but there are many that are good for your body and will help keep you healthy.  You probably know about some, but I'd like to share the news, some of it seemingly quite strange, about others.

Get the Royal Treatment in Evansville Soon at Showplace Cinema East

This is something I'm going to indulge in as soon as I can!  Soon Showplace Cinema East will provide you with the ultimate cinematic experience in "The Royal Suite."  You won't be "watching" a new movie, you'll be "experiencing" it with the latest Dolby Atmos sound system as you sit comfortably in a recliner and view the action on a "floating" 35-foot screen.  But wait, there's more!
