February has been being celebrated as Black History Month since 1926. 

Bitterness, hatred, prejudice, anger and bigotry affect the physical health as much as they poison the soul of men and women. The improvement of the mental, spiritual and emotional health of a nation will improve the health of the members of that society.

Dill weed

Now don’t start asking, “Why are we reading about a weed?” This weed is invariably in the dishes of most Eastern European and Scandinavian dishes, and it is delicious and super easy to grow. Dill weed is that super fresh herb of winter.

My father was never able to finish high school, having to drop out to help feed the family. Nevertheless, he taught me many valuable lessons that have stuck with me over the years. One of his sayings was, “You can’t borrow your way out of debt.”

In talking with one of my grandchildren the other day, I discovered a phenomenon that has not changed since I was a teen, and believe me, that has been a very long time now. (I celebrated my 75th birthday on Dec. 23, 2017). He wanted what he did not have, when just a few weeks ago, he wanted what he now has.

January is one of the very best months to be a duck hunter. The regular gun season on deer is closed across most of the state, and with that down time, it’s easy to work in more waterfowl hunts. It’s cold, there are very few mosquitoes, snakes are scarce and more birds are moving into freshwater ponds and the coastal marsh with each passing cold front.
