I returned from Vietnam at the end of August, 1965. I had long since learned not to be sure, or even really hopeful, that what was on my itinerary for the next day would actually come to pass. Even after safely arriving in California, I had no idea how long it would take the Army to process my...
Since spring weather had taken so long to get here, I was concerned about the welfare of the discussion group, myself and the three Chipmunks. I was worried that they might have trouble sleeping for an extra month, or that they had eaten enough late last fall to carry them over until this spring....
A piece of dry, uncooked spaghetti works like a long lighter/fire starter when lit. Use a salad spinner to remove canned fruit from it’s juice. Gingerroot is easier to peel and grate if frozen. When canning or freezing, an electric knife makes removing corn from the fresh cob much easier and faster...

Oh yes we are so looking forward to getting outside more!  At the Coffee party on Saturday we learned all about Lemons and enjoyed lemon donut holes and coffee,  the crafters got together to start some plants, Cline Connection was...

Suffering succotash! Until last week’s edition, I had never seen the entire editorial page of the paper filled with the words and wisdom of both Tim and John. Imagine how shocked I was to learn that not only is democracy secretive but, a cabal of Republican extremists run what little is left of it...
Put a few drops of peppermint oil (or other essential oil) in a hot dishwasher after the wash, to fill the house with a fabulous smell. Next time you are frying chicken, coat with mayo or sour cream instead of egg before breading. The breading sticks better without dripping off AND either one adds...
Hi, I’m Luke Thoma, the Farm Bill Wildlife Biologist for Todd County taking over from Sabin Adams. I am located in the USDA Farm Service Center office in Long Prairie with the NRCS.  Growing up on a hobby farm just west of Little Falls I enjoyed spending time outdoors and helping Dad out around the...
