Good morning. I apologize for not having my column in last week. My computer did not send out what I wrote for it (though it said that I had), and it was days later before I realized the problem. Some of what I wrote is still viable for this week, so it will be repeated in part. And for thos…

Good morning. Things in Townville are quieting down a bit following the Old Home Days celebration. Jeannie Seeley was a special guest for the parade, and also held a meet-and-greet time. The weather was great, attendance was excellent, activities were diverse and well received, so what more …

Good Morning. With the lawn mowing season upon us, I see a frequent error in judgment among those doing yard work. It is illegal and a hazard to mow or weed whack grass onto the road surface. Too many times the wind will not clear it off the road and that surface of grass is slippery to driv…

Good morning. As a gardener, my dining room is turning into a plant nursery. I have seeds started for many garden plants, and seedlings under the grow light to get things ready for the family garden this year. This is my way of welcoming spring, to see shoots growing and prepping for a large…

Good morning to everyone. Today is the first full day of spring, and the days ahead should just get better, for the most part. I am ready to get out and clean my flowerbeds, check on the new growth of my bedding plants and just start working in the garden. Since my cataracts had me legally b…

Good morning, everyone. I hope that everyone survives the chill of the mid-week cold spell of sub-zero temperatures. Saturday will be Groundhog Day and for most of the country, they will be watching what Punxsutawney Phil predicts for the next six weeks. Here in northwestern Pennsylvania, we…

Good morning, everyone. Time is passing quickly, and we will soon see the end of the month of January around the corner. How many of you made resolutions and are still trying to keep them? It seems to make the days drag when you are attempting to resist an urge or build a new habit.

Good morning everyone. Did anyone find it strange to be out in the rain on Tuesday and hear thunder rolling nearby? This January may be our strangest for weather conditions. Mercer County had tornado warnings for the first time ever in this month.

Good morning. As winter approaches, there are good points to see as a part of the season, and as I love winter, I will share a couple of them during this time. The quiet of a fresh fallen snow can be very tranquil when the hustle and bustle of the holidays closes in on you. So take a moment …

Good morning to all my readers from far and near. The weather here lately is giving us a rollercoaster ride of temperature changes and precipitation switch-ups. Each morning I check out the window, then the TV forecast before I dress for the day, and still I find that I need more layers or I…

Good morning. November is nearing the end and the final month of 2018 is about to begin. The snow is reminding us that winter is on the way, and Christmas is not that far behind. I have had to write 2019 on a few occasions, and it is a bit unnerving to realize that the year is almost gone. I…
