As I sat talking with a couple of friends one day last week, the subject of prisoners and prison life came up, somehow connected to all the media hype over poor little rich girl, Paris Hilton.

When my children were still quite young, one of our favorite episodes of Winnie The Pooh was the story of Cassie, the baby owl, growing old enough to take flight for the very first time.

Part II Though my father never knew his great-grandfather Samuel Young, he was fortunate to spend a great deal of time with his own grandfather, Samuel's son.

Part I How does one go about explaining a connection to the land? It has seemed impossible for me to explain why I care about the land on which my father was born and raised.

I hopped in my car early yesterday morning. My daughter Caroline had borrowed my car the day before, and left her music behind.

This is the season of celebration, and we are enjoying every minute of it. With high school graduation ceremonies behind us, we focused on hosting a party here to mark the occasion for our son and our daughter.

Remember the trepidation of having to climb up the ladder to the dark hay mow very early in the morning after having stayed up late watching a scary movie the night before? It's been years and years ago, but I still feel that tingling in the toes and chills up my spine just thinking about it! Scary story.

Life is made up of a million and one ordinary days, but into this mix are sprinkled some truly momentous moments, usually spread out with wonderful harmony and the balance of time.

Traveling newsman Charles Kuralt once described the farmers of this nation as one of the most stubborn breeds of man alive, and I have never forgotten it.

A friend recently sent me a clipping about the history of aprons, stating that most of our children wouldn't even know what an apron is! A dear aunt.
