SECRET SELFISH - HOME COUNTRY

Details

There is a secret selfish longing we all share this time of year. It is traditional to give gifts at Christmas, of course, but there's always the chance that those who adore us for our sterling qualities won't give us what we really want or unquestioningly deserve. Therefore ... we are allowed to have Christmas present dreams.

Just take Doc. He knows he'll be getting neckties from the grandkids and socks and underwear from Mrs. Doc. His daughters? Well, they're the wild cards. They work hard...

“SHOCKING” NEWS ABOUT RE-POTTING

Details

During the late fall and early winter I get lots of calls about re-potting house plants that are not doing so well. The problem however is only going to get drastically worse if you do indeed re-pot your plant. Re-potting plants at the beginning of winter is a horrible idea for so many reasons.

HOUNDDOG MAN - HOME COUNTRY

Details

My first wife came from a ranching family way back up in the hills and had a cousin, Ted, who was a hounddog man.

I talked my way into hunting with him, of course.
All went well until we were on the way home, when a badger ran across the road and dove into a large culvert pipe.

"Oh wow!" Ted yelled. "Let's get him!"

He released most of the hounds and they plugged the culvert pipe with bawling insults. In the dead center of the pipe was a snarling badger.

"Gotta smoke him outta there," Ted...

GROWING ORCHIDS

Details

There are over 750 genera of orchids in the world so when choosing the one for your home, try my simple method. Just buy any that you see available at any store. Most stores (unless an orchid specialty shop) only offer the varieties that are easy to grow under normal household conditions. To name just a few that you may see: Phalaenopsis, cattleya, dendrobium and papheopedilum. These orchids love the average home conditions even if you run your temperatures a little warmer or a little cooler...

HATS, GLOVES, SCARVES ARE NEEDED FOR FWCS STUDENTS

Details

Winter is coming, but many children do not have hats, gloves or mittens and scarves to keep them warm. You can see them on many cold mornings waiting on buses wearing nothing on their heads or hands, but you can help.

Heritage Park is holding a drive for these items to benefit many of the 31,000 students who attend Fort Wayne Community Schools. The community is encouraged to support this drive by donating and bringing these items to Heritage Park, 2001 Hobson Road.
