A BYTE OF KNOWLEDGE

Apple's aggressive advertising campaign brings out the truth on Microsoft Windows.

When I was a consultant at Indiana University we had a little survey of computer preference. Computer consultants with Windows backgrounds and Macintosh backgrounds and even NeXT users actually preferred Macintosh computers over Windows Machines.

With Mac OS X and the new line of Macintosh computers (iMac, iBook, Power Macintosh and the new eMac) Apple computer's products are touting amazing features prices...

KAMPFIRE KOOKIN'

I'll admit it; I like chicken wings. I like them coated & fried, BBQ'd, KFC'd, or done up Buffalo Style. I like Buffalo Style the best and I looked for an 'easy' way to prepare them. Father's Day found me with 16 pounds of wings to prepare. Here is a recipe for about 3 to 5 lbs.

Cut wings into three pieces; cut at the joints,. Discard tips or save to boil down for chicken stock.

Put wing pieces into a shallow pan in a single layer.

THE RAINBOW

Based on a Native American Legend & submitted

by Rev. Tom Dancing Feather Ebbing

 

Once upon a time the colors of the world started to quarrel: all claimed that they were the best, the most important, the most useful, the favorite.

RAY MCCUNE NOW A PART OF BOY SCOUT TROOP 38 AND TROOP 44

Yes, it's true. It's been a few years since I was Scoutmaster of Troop 44 and visiting the old Scout Cabin brought back a lot of memories; so many in fact that I decided to help the troop get back on it's feet. Although I started Boy Scout Troop 38 some 10 years ago and am still a part of it by being a committee member, I thought I'd share my scouting skills with another troop. Each Monday night is spent jumping back and forth between...

NEWS FROM THE HILLS

Details

Dear Cousin,

 

A killing frost fell upon our hills, and hollers last night, leaving behind white death to many of our tender plants and flowers. The azalea bush that proudly sported brilliant orange blossoms hangs down with wilted and drooping flowers this morning. The catalpa tree didn't escape the damage, but stands with blasted leaves and blackened flower buds.

The garden soil has stayed so wet that we haven't planted any crops yet, so we escaped the disappointment of ruined tomato and...

SMOKE ON THE WIND

Details

The West direction on the Medicine Wheel is the Looks-Within-Place- Introspection. This is the time for listening. God will send all that we need for our Earthly journey. Remember, He sent His son - The Way Shower. We Natives have our ceremonies - the pipe, the sweat lodge, the vision quest - the sacred herbs, our dances. We listen to our elders with love and respect. They help us to connect with that Holy Spirit in a good way. We have endured much suffering and loss. At a time, there were many...
