  • Tomatoes: more than a salad accessory

    When summer began, I had big plans to start my first garden. I was inexperienced and overly ambitious and now that August is here I am left with more tomatoes than I could possibly eat even through the rest of the year.

    With the old saying “waste not, want not” in the back of my head I am getting very creative with all the things you can do with tomatoes.

  • Animal House

    Grace Anderson chuckles as some cats seek attention, rubbing against her legs while a few of her five dogs bark as the stranger loads his car.

    And beginning this weekend, a good number of those critters will be making a trip to Louisville for the Anderson family’s annual excursion to the Kentucky State Fair.

  • A day of food, fellowship and laughter

  • Bible theme has little to do with man

    Several years ago while speaking to a group of about 70 people I was prompted to ask a question that had intrigued me for years: What is the central theme of the Bible?

    Because I wanted the answers to be individual and not a takeoff from someone else’s response, I had each person first write their response on an index card and then transfer their answers to large pieces of paper I’d hung at the front of the room.
