Planets Adorn December Nights

 

Four planets and shooting stars will decorate December nights like ornaments on a Christmas tree. Venus, Mars, Saturn, and Jupiter will be easy to find in either the evening or morning sky.

Venus and Mars shine a mere 1.6-degree apart during the first week of December. Venus is at its greatest brilliancy on December 6th glowing at a magnitude –4.7. On that same day, Mars is only 1.33 degrees to the right of Venus at magnitude+2.3. Venus is the brightest...

Dear Cousin,

 

Deer hunting season is upon us, and the men and boys in our family are busy gearing up for their favorite season. It has always been a tradition for our sons and now adult grandsons to gather long before daylight and partake of a bountiful breakfast together before heading for the woods. We fix fried potatoes, sausage gravy, bacon and eggs, hot biscuits and plenty of homemade jams and jellies. After this bountiful repast, they are ready to face the wilds of West...

This week we're going to let THE WAYNEDALE NEWS reader, Mary Frecker, tell you about:

"SQUIRREL, IT TASTES JUST LIKE CHICKEN"

Get your hunter out to bag you 3 or 4 of those fluffy tailed critters. After they are skinned and gutted, soak them in cold water to cover with about 1/2 cup of salt. This will take the gamey taste away. Let soak for about 2 hours, then rinse well in cold water again. They then can be prepared like any other chicken dish: grilled, BBQ'd, roasted, and country...

HAPPY THANKSGIVING

 

Oh what beautiful words! They bring a smile to the faces of everyone who hears and speaks these two words. Thanksgiving warms the heart and lifts our spirits with memories of times past and present, and hope for the future. The time spent with family and friends is truly a blessing, but it takes on a special glow during the holidays. We become more receptive to reflect on our many blessings from God and to share with those that are less fortunate by our donations of time...
