Today's Features

  • Last week, we rolled the clocks back an hour. It came a week later than last year and I understand it will be even later next year.

    There is much controversy about daylight saving time. The idea is that it saves energy because less time is spent working in the dark during the summer. Fine, but it is just the opposite for me. I work early evenings, so in the summer I have to work an hour later in daylight that I'd much rather be spending at home.

  • Last week before the weather turned nasty, the full moon tides and calm winds set the stage for some very good afternoon and evening fishing trips. One trip was very special to me since I was able to take my mother and older sister out for a brief outing. And man, what an outing it turned out to be.

    My mom just loves to catch redfish, but my sister is equally enthused to admire the playful actions of dolphins showing off around a boat. On this trip, both orders would be filled.

  • It was many years before I knew the difference between sweet potatoes and yams. I still am not certain of any real difference except the color; one being a brighter orange color than the other. Like pumpkin, I like either one.

    A baked sweet potato is about the simplest way I know to fix these delicious vegetables that can also be used to make desserts. And, with a microwave it is even simpler! Just wash the potato, pierce it in a couple of places with a fork and either wrap in foil for the oven or place on a paper plate and cover with a paper towel for the microwave.

  • "What good will it be for a man if he gains the whole world, yet forfeits his soul? Or what can a man give in exchange for his soul?" (Matthew 16:26 NIV)

    It has not been my lot in life to rub shoulders with people that are commonly known as the rich and famous. However, along the way, there have been some people to cross my path that have accumulated a lot of this world's goods, along with some fame in their field of endeavor.
