Wow! Have times changed. When I was younger, I couldn't get enough sun and the heat just made it better. I would work all day cutting grass around home, then I would get on the tractor and mow my little farm path and when that was all done, if there was still light, I would lower the deck on my mower and cut some more. Before or after I started mowing, I would go to the tanning bed to even up my tan and I had the prettiest, even golden tan around. Now, after a few spots that "really" got my attention, times and things have changed.

Word for the Week

Individualism pervades Christianity. It has to do with how we commonly approach faith in God through Jesus Christ. Faith, we say, is personal not public. We therefore emphasize what we can do and what we must do as individuals. We emphasize personal commitment, personal devotions, and personal relationships with Christ. Christians getting their spiritual food via e-mail and web sites sitting by themselves with an iPad accentuates this individualism.

Solving another problem plaguing mankind

How can man be so brilliant while at the same time be dumb as dirt.
I apologize to the soil that God created to help sustain life for saying that. Dirt is not dumb. Dirt, un-scathed by man, takes natural vegetation that grows each year, and, when it falls back to the surface of the dirt as part of its life cycle, it decomposes that vegetation into nutrients to grow next year's bounty.
Dirt, unlike man, is not dumb. Dirt, I apologize to you for my errant language.

No need to tap that thermometer, summer has come!

No, you didn't dream it -- just a few weeks ago, folks around here were still wearing long sleeve shirts, hoodies, and jeans. Many heat pumps were set to "off," or at least there was a battle between "heat" and "cool."
But now, summer is upon us.
When I was younger, I had mixed feelings about summer. It meant the end of the school, but it also meant full-fledged garden work. At one point, it meant tobacco farming.

PARVO KILLS ~ Parvo is a highly contagious viral infection. If you add to that intestinal worms, double whammy. These are two things that dog owners can do themselves, if they cannot afford to go to a vet, although that is best. Places like feed stores have the vaccines and wormer. Parvo disease is spread from dog to dog mainly through exposure to feces of sick dogs.

Spivey Closes Out NC Career

ROCKY MOUNT -- When he was a freshman at Nash Central, Aaron Spivey set a goal to one day play college basketball.
But when it came time to make that goal official during his senior campaign, Spivey thought long-term instead of instant glory.
That's why Spivey, a recently graduated senior, has accepted an academic scholarship offer to attend prestigious Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem.
Spivey received offers from some smaller schools to join their respective hoops program, but the opportunity to attend Wake Forest -- and have 95 percent of it paid for -- was too good to pass up.
