    Powdery mildew is probably the most common garden fungus around. It is not too terribly picky about where it spreads, it likes humid and dry weather, thrives in the heat of the summer and is hard to control once it has started. The trick here is to prevent it from happening by proper plant selection, spacing and treatment before it takes hold.

    Perhaps you heard about the woman who was pulled over for doing 65 mph in a 40 mph zone?

    The policeman then asked for her vehicle registration, but she said she had stolen the car, killed the driver and stashed his body in the trunk.

    “Ma’am, don’t move,” the policeman ordered. “I’m calling for backup.”

  • When I first met my husband he drove a brand-new 1973 Mercury Comet GT, white with orange pinstripes along the sides and orange vinyl interior – and a manual transmission.

    As Barry attempted to teach me how to drive it, I proved myself to be a willing student, but not an adept one.

    I understood the whole clutch-brake-gas pedal thing in theory, but when it came to putting my foot on the correct pedal at the correct time there seemed to be either one too many pedals or I had one too few feet to do it right.

    We had a wonderful morning of worship through beautiful special music provided by Mikala, observance of the Lord’s Supper, and a great message of truth from God’s Word. The message from Proverbs 29:18 titled “Give Them Something to Believe In” challenged us to surrender our whole life to God and to get our priorities in order.

    One of the most potentially damaging problems facing sweet corn producers is controlling insects that feed on the ear. During the summer months, if you grow sweet corn, you need to watch for corn earworm.
