Today's Features

  • John and Margie Porter will celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary tomorrow. They were married June 9, 1956 in Wiesbaden, Germany.
     

  • “Certainly no bread in America has been more popular over a longer time than baking powder biscuits. In fact, in many homes they were baked three times a day in great quantities, and were eaten hot, with butter and honey or preserves, along with every meal.” James Beard, 1881.

  • Cedar Hill Baptist Church

    We were greatly blessed Sunday as Linda led our music and sang a special with MiKayla.

    Also, appreciate testimonies shared by Linda and Glenna.  It is great to be bold in sharing how God has worked and is working in our lives.  Bro. Bill’s message was from Exodus 2:1-10 entitled “An Example for Today.”  It focused on what to do when we’ve done all we can do.

    Sunday evening we watched movie “Risen” and then celebrated Glenna’s birthday.

  • I love yoga – pants.

    Soft, comfy and forgiving. They’re great to wear around the house or to bed. They’re especially great to wear before, during and after you stop at the store and bring home a vanilla creme bundt cake and maybe slice into it one or 12 times too many.

    Not that I’ve ever done that, but if I do, I’ve got the perfect pants for it.

    Yoga itself I don’t know well enough to love. I love the idea of it, of wearing the clothes and being in a space that’s usually beautifully lit and serene.

  • You know you’re getting old when you skip the health foods because you realize you need all the preservatives you can get.

    You know you’re getting old when, if you fall, you wonder what else you can do while you’re down there.

    You know you’re getting old when you come to realize time may be a great healer, but it’s a lousy beautician.

    I’m not sure who authored those lines, but I found them quite amusing. They also got me thinking about what the Bible says about the aging process.

  • The Owen County Council for the Arts is partnering with the city of Gratz to present the eighth annual spring arts festival. This year’s “Arts in the Park” will be held in Gratz, along the banks of the Kentucky River. It will include lots of possibilities to be on the river as well as near it, as the event celebrates the impact of the Kentucky River on Owen County and showcases its artists, craftspeople, music and food.

    The festival will take place rain or shine from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, June 11.

  • With dogged and unflinching determination they met the enemy, and many gave their lives for a cause in which they believed.

    A great tragedy unfolded when the enemy was a member of a soldier’s own family, and during the Civil War, this scenario was played out between more Kentuckians than any other people of the United States.

    You might have heard about the fellow who climbed on the horse to take a ride, and then got frightened. He began to scream and holler for someone to stop the thing.

    If the Kmart manager hadn’t come out and unplugged it, that fellow feared he might have gotten hurt.

    Long Ridge’s own Cara Mohler shared that story the other day, and caused me to laugh out loud.

  • I wish you could walk in my shoes.

    I’m talking about my Skechers round-toed EZ Flex 2 Sweetpea slip-ons with the softest, most cushiony memory foam footbeds that feel like I’m walking on pillows.

    I have three pairs – black, gray and powder blue. Today I’m wearing the powder blue ones.

    They are the most comfortable shoes I own and quite possibly the most comfortable shoes I may have ever worn before in my entire life.

    I love these shoes.
