Re-lent-ing

Posted 3/2/2013 in Columns

We are once again in the season of Lent -- a somber six weeks, which is observed by many Christians, between Ash Wednesday and Holy Thursday. According to the Gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke, this time commemorates the 40 days that Jesus spent in the desert. There he fasted, had a run-in with the devil, and emerged a changed man. Or, you might say, a carpenter went into the desert and the son of God came out.

 

 

Betty Stone: Road trip

Posted 3/2/2013 in Columns

Back when we went to the "picture show" for our movies, we saw newsreels that ended with "Time Marches On." Today time does not march; it stampedes. I did not realize it had been so long since I had tried to get around the Ole Miss campus until I went there recently. Like Mississippi State University, it has changed dramatically. We recognized a few landmarks, of course, but we could not find half of what we wanted.

Baked, broiled, grilled, pan-fried -- salmon has a place in your menu

Posted 2/27/2013 in Food

When the palate gets a craving for fish, salmon is a delicious popular choice. It's one of the most versatile -- and forgiving -- fish out there. It can be baked, sautéed, grilled, pan-seared, poached or broiled. You can get it farm-raised or wild-caught, and it earns bonus points for its high quality protein and heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids.

Posted 2/27/2013 in Food

Southern Gardening: Spring brings garden shows across the state

Posted 2/23/2013 in Columns

Cabin fever seems to hit me earlier each year, and it doesn't help that we haven't had much of a winter the past couple of years. I already have tomato transplants ready to put in the ground even though it's still two months from the traditional last frost date here on the coast. I saw blooming annuals for sale this weekend at a local garden center. I think I'm feeling a little warm.

Do you get the feeling that the Earth is spinning a bit off her axis these days? Strange things are happening, and I'm not talking only about inside of our City Council chambers. It seems that the entire world is crazily out of kilter.

 

 

Being beautiful: Even spring cleaning can be beautiful

Posted 2/23/2013 in Columns

The yellow daffodils have popped up in my neighbor's yard. That must mean spring is on the way, so it's time for some spring cleaning. Of course, I'm not speaking of house cleaning, so don't stop reading. Hopefully this will be more fun.
