Wow!  This weather is crazy!  70+ degrees today and then windy and colder tonight - much colder. Very strange.
The Christmas Lighting event Saturday night was lots of fun. Daniel Park was lit up, Santa was there, carolers were there and the Christmas train was there. Everyone had lots of fun!  Oh, yes, and the weather [...]

Christmas is getting closer.  The annual Beebe Chamber of Commerce Lighted Christmas Parade was held last Saturday night. I hadn’t planned on riding in the parade but last-minute opportunity arose and I rode with Mike, Carol and Trinity Robertson in a teeny tiny Suzuiki Samari. BUT it did have a heater - for those of us [...]

I hope you had a great Thanksgiving!  We had a good amount of people who attended our Thanksgiving luncheon at Beebe First United Methodist Church. Many people got take-out food and that was also great.  For all those who prepared the food, helped serve, deliver, clean-up, etc. - a big Thank You!!!! A special thank [...]

Thanksgiving - it’s one of my favorite holidays. It’s not because I like turkey so much (maybe the dressing) but it’s because giving thanks for the blessings we have is so basic to experiencing a good life. Without gratitude - we are left empty and looking for more. We’ll never have as much as the [...]

Complete or finished?
No dictionary has ever been able to satisfactorily define the difference between “complete” and “finished.” However, during a recent linguistic conference, held in London, England, and attended by some [...]

Well - today’s the day - it’s election day. I’m getting ready to go to City Hall and vote.  I hope you all are going to do the same if you weren’t an early voter.
One thing is for sure - I will be very glad not to see anymore political ads on television. I wish [...]

Well, this is a busy time. We have Halloween coming up and then the General Election is Tuesday, Nov. 4th. If you haven’t early voted - please make sure you go vote on Tuesday, Nov. 4th!  You know what they say, “If you don’t vote - you can’t gripe…”

Each evening you know that we are in October because the temperatures are very cool (60’s -50’s) but during the day - the temps get up in the low 70’s. I like it like that but I guess soon we will move on into the freezing temps. Our tomatoes are still growing - green now [...]

Last week I talked about maybe switching cat litter - well I’m in the process of switching back. The corn based litter just tracks too much for all my cats and it doesn’t clump as good. You may still like it if you have a real problem with the dust of the clay based litter. [...]
