  • It’s that time of year again.  You know how it goes—the first two months of the year everyone is trying to lose weight and make new goals for themselves.  It’s that time of the year when gyms are packed at all hours and everyone is trying a new fad diet.

  • With frigid temperatures and wind chills expected in the coming days, the Kentucky Division of Water reminds citizens to protect the water systems in their homes and businesses from freezing.
    When water freezes, it expands. When water freezes in a pipe and expands enough, the pipe bursts, water escapes and serious damage results. Pipes in attics, crawl spaces and outside walls are all vulnerable to freezing, especially if there are cracks or openings that allow cold outside air to flow across the pipes.

    Mention the smells of Christmas and most people have little trouble ticking off their favorites: the perfume of evergreen, the citrusy smell of fruit in the Christmas stockings, cinnamon spice tea brewing, the aroma of gingerbread cookies and pumpkin bread baking.
    So popular are these smells that they’ve been packaged in Christmas aerosol sprays, candles, and refresher oils.
    Not so with the New Year.

    My grandma and my mother always told me you had to eat black-eyed peas on New Year’s Day to get good luck for the coming year. I remember asking Mom what would happen if you didn’t eat them. She said she didn’t know because she’d never tried it!
