Hi friends, This is Alline, back in the writing rotation after a few years off. I tend to be a traditionalist when it comes to this column. Fourteen years ago, when Rachel Katz first proposed the idea to Memphis Democrat editor Chris Feeney, the column was intended as a way for Dancing Rabbit to be […]

Where You Are

When I first began bass fishing as a young adult I didn’t have the luxury of a bass boat and all of its frills. I fished with a friend who had a “V” hull aluminum boat. The trolling motor was small and the outboard was even smaller. He owned a small cabin on the lake […]


Victory.  Oh how we like it.  Celebration.  More of the same.  Success.  A feel-good moment. Who doesn’t appreciate the victory and celebration of success.  (V-C-S) Christianity is not a new brand of V-C-S lifestyle.  Neither is it simply a notch above worldly V-C-S.  No. Christianity gives its inhabitants abundance of life and grace when there […]

A Digression About Organics

“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” Hippocrates Winter is clearly the time when we rest from the physical garden pursuits.  We can leisurely think about the season that has passed and plan for the upcoming one.  Our diets naturally change with the cold weather and the slower pace.  It’s a holiday […]

Feeding Behavior

Feeding Behavior

Are you having trouble with birds coming to your feeders?   Birds change their feeding behavior.  Temperatures, weather, time of year, time of day – all influence a bird’s feeding habits. In mild weather, when wild food is plentiful, birds will use your feeder less. I will attribute this last statement as to why I, myself, […]


For the past several years I have spent the first two or three weeks of November hunting deer away from home. As all deer hunters know, these weeks are considered the best for having an opportunity to harvest a big buck. And while my area has lots of deer and is also home to some […]



We have had several gloomy days this past week.  I hate to say it but a little snow would look pretty and attract some of the winter feeder birds.  Cardinals are a bright attraction to the feeders this time of year. The actual word Cardinal originally meant important, and later referred to the high-ranking official […]

Tick Tock

Tick Tock

Vick here, feeling keenly aware of time as I mark the expiration of each passing second. As I embark on this journey to the final sentence, I cannot escape the realization that I am simultaneously approaching my final moment on Earth, one nanosecond at a time – it’s a thought that occurs to me rather […]

The Calling Challenges For Churches

The church is poised on the edge of its seat with powerful anticipation of what’s next. Or.. .is it? I think not. Rather, churches in general do not function with a drive to reach the wonderful populace which knows little about God and His elaborate transformation system.  No, we are snagged on the splinters of […]

Rutledge Renegades

Ruth Ludwick went to Quincy. Reva Hustead went to Kirksville, another day to Hannibal and later to Quincy. Neta Phillips went to Columbia. Doug Schmeizer came and took his mother, Ruth Ludwick, to Keith’s for lunch. Some of those in last week were Tim Morris, Dale and Lisa Tague, Bob and Dorothy Hunolt, Bette Wiley, […]
