  • It finally happened.

    And if I’m honest I can say I’m surprised it hadn’t happened already.
    I fell holding one of my children.

    I’ve mentioned a time or two how klutzy I am, and it’s true. As I’m typing this I’m covered in a plethora of bruises, bumps, scratches and cuts from bike rides, stumblings or just everyday walking around my house.

    At one point a couple of weeks ago I looked like someone who’d been in a bad car accident.

    Summer foods are here. And that doesn’t include hot dogs, which become a regular summer lunch because 20 seconds in the microwave is all it takes. Instead of mystery meat encased in phosphates and who knows what else, try stocking the fridge with a few ready-to-eat healthy options.

    With about 20 to 30 minutes of prep time, you can be prepared with quick and easy healthy foods for the whole week with these summer staples.

  • Christa Smith’s art is a link to her heritage.

    Originally from Germany, she creates Bavarian folk art boxes using Bauernmalerei, a type of folk painting.

    She said her route to Elizabethtown was like many in the area. She married a military man who was eventually stationed at Fort Knox. After 30 years of military service, he retired in Elizabethtown.

  • As homeowners and governments alike look for more ways to trim energy consumption, compact fluorescent lamps are getting attention. Here are some facts to know.
     

  • Quite some time ago, I entertained the idea of writing a cookbook. I put it off thinking it was just too large a project. But last year, I thought, “Why not?”

    I worked on and off last year and thought I would finish it up this past winter. Not. There really was a lot of work to do, then the image of my Dad, who has been gone since 1972, when at the age of 63, he was plucked away from us.

  • When vintage cars cruise into downtown Elizabethtown, Heath Seymour, executive director of the Elizabethtown-Hardin County Heritage Council hopes they will not only attract visitors but introduce customers to the businesses there.

    For its part, the council will have a booth at the event Saturday and hold a scavenger hunt, complete with prizes.

    “We’re trying to find ways to get people downtown on a regular basis,” Seymour said.

  • If a picture is worth a thousand words, photos of me generally say “Yikes” a thousand times.

    This is not news to some, as I’ve written about this in previous columns and told countless individuals when the subject came up. I generally qualify the statement by explaining it is not impossible to get a decent photograph of me. It’s just that a photo of me is more likely to elicit gasps or guffaws than anything else.

  • Reality is not just for T.V.

    It’s the foundation of the lyrics written by Elizabethtown rapper Master Harrison Isom, who performs under the name H. Master Ice.

    Isom recalls writing down his thoughts and emotions when he was in the second grade.

    “My teacher suggested I should write because I had to vent,” Isom said.

    As he got older, Isom continued to express himself on paper and eventually began rapping when he was 16.

    That’s when he began recording his music, too.
