What do moms and law enforcement have in common?
Both moms and law enforcement are honored in May. Mother's Day was on May 13. Law Enforcement Memorial Day was May 15. Besides having a common, celebratory month, both mothers and police officers deserve respect for their time and trouble. I'm sure many of us can remember a time...

A Bea in the Garden column: Plenty of ways to make up for late spring
Did you take part in the world event that happened on last Saturday? Did you know that it was "National Gardening in the Nude Day?" I myself did not find out about it until well into the day so I am sorry I did not tell you in time to take part. As it was, I got a lot of scratches...

A Bea in the Garden column: Hopefully, spring is here to stay
I will have to get over my funk that spring is not going to get here and I am perfectly okay to stay inside and drink tea and bake cookies. I walked down our driveway in shoes without cleats for the first time in months and there were absolutely no ice chunks to kick or slip on. Then...
