More Home Remedies

A while back I wrote about home remedies. There was such a good response from readers and I have since learned more, so I wanted to share these new ones with you, too. Please remember that all the remedies mentioned are hearsay and not intended to replace your doctor’s care. Use...

Forgiveness from a Stranger

Going to the Lane Theatre and the Dixie Drive-In with my friends, when I was a teenager, was so much fun, and one of my favorite past-times. I have many fond memories at both places. I’ve written about the theaters before, which are both closed and have been for years, b...

Unusual Recipe for Yummy Biscuits

The best, and often described most important meal of the day is breakfast. As the name suggests, breakfast breaks the overnight fasting period and replenishes the supply of glucose in our body to boost the brain’s alertness and our body’s energy levels. In my opinion there’s...

Eat What Nature Gave Us

Driving through Corbin last week, I noticed in the green grassy areas in the city, the beautiful, bright bursts of yellow that are everywhere! Each year, dandelions announce spring with their pure sunshiny color, and what do we do? We all rush to mow them down like they are not...

Don’t take things for granted

We don’t realize how much we use or need something until it’s gone. Being without, whatever it is, sure makes us appreciate it all the more when we get it back, doesn’t it? Case in point, the water at our house was out for a day last week, and I am so thankful to East Knox Water...

Alcohol and drug addiction has risen 13 percent, and overdoses have spiked, since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. Substance abuse problems have roots going back thousands of years, but the traumatic isolation and extra stress created by the COVID lockdowns, and widespread...

Something in his eye

While out running errands with my husband Saturday, we fell into a conversation about David’s grandparents. Hearing him talk about his grandparents warms my heart, as I really didn’t have much time at all with any of mine. My grandfather on Dad’s side passed before I was born,...

Cast-iron cookware is making a comeback!

What pan do you use to bake your cornbread? Can you use that same pan to fry eggs, brown a steak, sauté onions, or bake a cake? Well, if you use cast-iron cookware, you probably do. Cast-iron cookware is the most durable and dependable cookware one can own, and at one time, it...

Take a stand against trash

Driving around, I see trash strewn from one end of town to the other. It’s sad and reminds me of movies of less developed countries or those depicting the future, close to or after an environmental collapse. Looking at the trash, I can’t help but be reminded of the commercial of...
