Posted on May 9, 2017 11:11 am by Sharon Hall

Wherever we celebrate this day, if mom/mum is no longer with us, she will forever remain in a cozy nook in our hearts.
When my mum passed, I struggled with finding a way to keep her memory alive. I wanted … Read the rest

Y’all never heard of a trash can?

Posted on May 8, 2017 12:12 pm by Robert Joseph Baker

I’m not known by those close to me as a conservationist by any means. I don’t recycle. But I don’t trash the outside either.
So, every year, on Earth Day, I send my friend, Bryan, a message detailing some Super Fund-level environmental catastrophe that I’ve caused.
One year, I told … Read the rest
