    Happy Thanksgiving to all from the Marion County Animal Shelter. We have had a busy couple of weeks, winterizing.
    I guess my first order of business is to update everyone on our Boxer, Chanler’s progress. He is doing wonderful. He has gained a lot of much needed weight!

  • This wonderful pumpkin cheesecake will take the place of pumpkin pie at my Thanksgiving table this year. I’m a real cheesecake lover, and this is a good one for any time of year. Besides, I’ve never been able to make pies as good as my mother or grandmother did. My grandma Dillon made excellent pies, and pumpkin was one of her favorites. She started with a fresh pumpkin (no canned pumpkin for her!)

  • Did you know that the cranberry used to be called the “craneberry?”
    When the colonists first learned of this berry from their American Indian hosts in the New World they thought the blooms of the native shrub looked liked the long neck and bill of the crane.
    Eventually, as language goes, it was shortened to cranberry.
