Just a reminder that if you would like a particular recipe or subject covered you can request it any time. After all, this column is for YOU! This week instead of a recipe or two, I’m going to give you some random money saving, time saving, and just plain helpful hints/tips. They may jump all over...
We have had some very nice early spring weather the past two weeks. So, I was waiting for the Chipmunks to make an appearance. Everything was ready. The bird feeder was up, there were plenty of sunflower seeds and the birds were plentiful. However, not one Chipmunk showed up until last Tuesday and...
