For the fourth time in five weeks, The Citizens Climate Lobby addressed the community in the pages of the local newspaper regarding their efforts to educate readers on their side of the climate change issue. If the letter had identified glaring […]

Advantaged… Always Advantaged

God puts the iffiness of “whether” out of commission.  Happiness is not dependent upon “whether” things go a certain way.  Productivity isn’t aborted when interference develops.  Neither is reason to hope.  Once a person believes this truth, life never looks the same.  Doubt and fear wilt as  possibility and expectation begin to govern.

Hello readers! As I click-clack away our home is being serenaded by a bee swarm that has chosen a nearby branch to rest on just beside our east window. The hive has outgrown the home our neighbors made for them, and our beekeeping friends are now in scramble mode. It is a sight (and a […]

Late Fledglings

August is almost here. The months are flying by. Soon be school bus time again in the neighborhood. I have a nest of bluebird eggs almost ready to hatch. They are having some late fledglings. I so love to hear their soft cheerful song, and watch them bring their blue color into my yard in […]

Explorers

“So, what are you doing here?” I asked. “Eatin’ hog,” he replies. Yes folks, those words are just a few of the gems that come from the esteemed wit of Doctor Joshua Lockyer, Ph.D. of Arkansas Tech University, Dancing Rabbit Board member, and all around cool guy. Doc Lock is here again visiting the village […]

Modifications

As a youngster, I spent every day outside during the summer. I don’t even remember the rain keeping the crew from Ford’s Woods at bay. I’m sure we were shut down sometimes but evidently I refused to enter those days in my memory bank. What I did enter were the days when each of the […]
