Forgive the personal reference today in my column, but I have had an exhausting two weeks with over 3,000 miles covered and a lot of heartbreak. When I start to write my column, I always think of what I have been learning and how I can communicate what I have stored away in my heart and mind with those who follow my writing. I only know how to write what is in my heart.

Rosey

Rosey is a lovely little lady looking for a nice, new home. She’s as cheerful as a cricket and she would like to share her good spirit with you! Rosey is a 5-year old, 15-pound terrier mix. She has a white, scruffy coat and is quite adorable. Volunteers rescued Rosey from a local pound.

Q. My stepdad recently died. He was the only father I knew for more than 40 years. He did not have a will. Do I inherit any of his property?

You could not watch any local or network show Tuesday, July 21, without hearing about a new online shopping service that claims it will undercut Amazon, Costco, Sam’s, Walmart, and all other online and local retailers. In beta testing for several months, this new online shopping service Jet (jet.com) went live to all July 21.

onions

I don’t know about you, but I would really miss onions if they weren’t around. They are so great at adding flavor and punch to cooked dishes, and crunch and zest in their natural state. Raw or cooked, you can have your choice from a small group of “alliums,” or members of a family that include onions, garlic and chives.
