  • What is the secret to a long life?
    According to one recent study there are currently over 500 centenarians in the state of Kentucky, and when many were asked the secret for their longevity, their answers varied.
    Some declared long life was the result of good food and exercises, while others proclaimed it was their deep abiding faith. One Kentuckian, who at the age of 104 walked two miles a day, attributed three daily beers as the special ingredient that provided her with a long life.

  • A rather dense fellow with ambitious plans to build his first house went to the lumberyard and asked for a load of two-by-fours.
    “How long you want them?” the salesman asked.
    “I want ‘em a long time,” he answered. “I’m building a house with ‘em.”
    My friend Harold Wainscott of Long Ridge, Ky., passed that old joke along to me the other day. Harold always cracks me up with his tales that he kindly shares for use in my newspaper columns.

  • Recently, as Sen. Elizabeth Warren gave a speech criticizing then-nominee now Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell stopped her from speaking.
    In his explanation for invoking a little-known rule to silence her, McConnell said, “Sen. Warren was giving a lengthy speech. She appeared to violate the rule. She was warned. Nevertheless, she persisted.”
    Immediately, that became the battle cry of many women across the nation with #ShePersisted and #LetLizSpeak among the top trending topics on Twitter.

    Tall fescue, specifically Kentucky 31, is a cool-season grass that is widely grown throughout Kentucky and the eastern United States because it is resistant to many unfavorable conditions including drought tolerance and insect resistance. However, the very reason for its resiliency is also its Achilles heel. It contains a harmful fungal endophyte that causes fescue toxicosis in cattle and horses. Affected animals get sick, have reduced weight gains, reproductive problems and other issues.

    In a fit of gratitude, I made a list of the things I loved about my life the other day. I managed eight solid things, none were frivolous, and one prompted the whole exercise: I love warm February days. This beautiful February day set into motion a very productive weekend.  It felt fantastic to get some good old fashioned garden clean up done with my husband by my side and the sheep grazing freely about. It makes you feel optimistic about the rest of your life.
