Happy Tail: Greta - Hero of the Day!

Over and over again the big lab's separation anxiety with subsequent destructive outbursts or escapades got Greta in trouble. Over and over she was adopted and then returned. Finally, she was adopted by Gabe Harris and his family in Russell Springs and had a furever home. An incident this past week with a home intruder proved the Harris' faith in Greta was not misplaced, that they had, indeed, a Hero Dog.

By Peg Schaeffer

In March, 2012 I was contacted by the Cumberland County Animal Shelter in Crossville, TN. They were overrun with dogs and had a chocolate Labrador Retriever that was scheduled to be euthanized. They said she was a sweet dog and could I pull her. I could and I did. So Greta came to the rescue.

Carol Perkins: On the history of popcorn popping

Carol packs 5,000 years of popcorn history into this column, from the first Indian (woman, she thinks) devising a a plan to contain the exploding kernels, from over open flames, to stove top cooking, to cooking from bagged and glass containers, to air poppers, to the ultimate and outrageously priced, movie popcorn, and finally, to the ultimate convenience, a nightly ritual at her house, microwaved popcorn: 'Popcorn is an inexpensive snack and easy to prepare. At our house it is a nightly ritual for Guy to pop his corn around nine o'clock and for Fluffy to bark at him until he gets a snack, too,' she wries.
The next earlier Carol Perkins column: Carol Perkins: I have joined the world of physical fitness Posted January 19, 2013.

By Carol Perkins

January is National Popcorn Month. Who knew? I immediately thought of my own connection to popcorn. How far back do popcorn and I go? Certainly not to the Native American Indians who some 5,000 years ago (according to my research) discovered that a particular type of corn would pop, especially over an open fire once thrown in the middle of it. After tiring of chasing the popcorn someone (likely a woman) came up with a plan to contain the corn for popping by placing it in a pan of some sort.

A Tip on Photography: Shoot on same level as kids

George Kolbenschlag writes, to Pen:
Nice photo of Hailey, Pen. Too often we look down on kids when we take photos of them instead of getting down to the level of their world and becoming part of it. Your photo of Hailey makes that point very well. Sweet - both the photo and the subject! - George Kolbenschlag

Tom Chaney: The Tattered Billboard

Of Writers And Their Books: The Tattered Billboard. Tom says, After I finished my Christmas P. D. James novel discussed last week, any direction to my reading just exploded into patchwork. This column first appeared 25 January 2009.
The next earlier Tom Chaney column: "The Certainty of Joy"

By Tom Chaney

The Tattered Billboard

I remember a clever little song that our mother used to sing. Mostly she sang it while we were traveling. It was usually triggered by a bedraggled billboard along the road. In the halcyon days of the 1940's billboards were closer to the road and not kept up so well as they are today.

By Chuck Hinman

It's Snowing At Tallgrass

Isn't it just be-Utiful? -- I heard a number of women residents squeal during lunch yesterday. Most quickly chimed in that the huge snowflakes were a sight to behold as they wandered aimlessly through the almost mild Oklahoma sky, seeming to be in no big rush to reach the ground. It didn't take long until you could tell that the snowfall was going to be more than just a smidgen!
