  • Personal Medicare Review or Enrollment

  • For centuries blisters, bunions and boils were treated with home remedies, as were more serious illnesses. From purging to blood letting to herbal poultices, folks treated themselves, their families and their neighbors, using remedies passed down through generations.

I know it’s been more like 5 inches. Cedar Creek is full and holding back Kay’s Branch and water is filling the creek clear past Bruce’s barn. On the farm that Ray lives on in Franklin County, the ground is so wet the cows are sinking into the middle of their legs. It makes it hard to feed from the tractors.
