A summer morning at Sandhill sounds like the first day of kindergarten - 15 or 20 high-pitched voices all talking at the same time. The kindergartners, in this case, being the birds - cardinals and sparrows and crows - that share my living space. An experienced birder could surely distinguish among the songs and calls; I am satisfied to sit in the concert hall and listen. This morning I get more than a performance.

As I have traveled this strange journey I have learned something very special about the best medications. Those are prayer and friendship.

Grains were so important to our ancestors that they believed each grain variety was a gift from the gods. Today grains are the most important food crop in the world. Even though the United States and Canada produce 20 percent of the world's grain, their residents are definitely on the minus side when it comes to consuming their healthy share. Americans fall short of recommended grain consumption by about 30 percent.

Where did May go? I can't believe June's already here. You know what that means-Christmas is only six months away. It's never too early to start thinking about Christmas-my favorite holiday.

Fun with the family by Julie Lavender

Even though the calendar disagrees, parents, teachers, and children insist that "summer" has arrived! Pretend along with your kids that summer is really here and make the most of every warm day in June. Enjoy fun in the sun, playing at the park, trips to the pool or beach, picking fresh vegetables, sleeping late, chasing fireflies – make it a summer that your children will long remember!

The Answer Doc with Dr. Christopher Munger, M.D.

Q: My infant child has had a diaper rash for one week. I have been using a diaper cream each time I change his diaper. His little bottom is still very red and each time I clean him it seems to hurt. Are there any tricks that I can use at home or do I need to see a doctor in order to get rid of this stubborn rash?

GSU Botanical Gardens with Chuck Taylor

In my last article I mentioned rain gardens as one of the elements of a sustainable garden. But what are rain gardens? Basically, rain gardens are shallow depressions designed to collect rain runoff, typically from impervious surfaces such as driveways and roofs. The intention of the depression is to allow the water to collect and percolate into the soil, allowing plants, bacteria and soils to clean and filter the water as it seeps into the ground.

On this Memorial Day, please remember the reason that our nation set this day aside as a holiday. Please make a special effort to take time to remember those who gave their lives for our freedom. Having grown up in the home of a WWII veteran, I am especially aware of the sacrifice of those who died in battle, as well as the scars, internal and external, of those who survive.

Mama was driving the Mule and Daddy was hanging off the edge of the passenger-side seat, a rather precarious way of riding necessitated by the fact that Lily and Tamar were in their usual places - Lily sprawled in the floorboard and Tamar sitting front and center beside Mama. They drove up into my yard and Mama asked, "You had supper? Your Daddy just caught a nice mess of fish. There's enough for you, too."

Homemade ice cream is a delightful treat for any occasion. Many recipes for homemade ice cream contain raw eggs, which are not cooked thoroughly. Raw eggs can be contaminated with Salmonella enteritidis bacteria, which cause the disease salmonellosis. Consumers should avoid eating raw eggs and foods containing raw eggs. Raw eggs can be pasteurized, which kills Salmonella bacteria.

For Young Readers

In the late 1700s, Gothic fiction made its debut in the European literature scene with Horace Walpole's "The Castle of Ontranto," a novel that blended romantic and horror genres to create an entirely new writing style. The genre endured more than a century, with the most well-known product of Gothic fiction being Bram Stoker's Dracula. Since Dracula, few Gothic novels have been truly immortal in the public mind, but many authors keep Gothic literature on the shelves for readers to enjoy. Chris Wooding, a native Briton with an impressive history as a writer already, is one of these ...

Thinking of God by Larry Sheehy

Language is really interesting - and important. Communication is enhanced by the use of words and phrases used to verbally describe mental pictures for us. In this way, we can "see" what others are saying. Sometimes the same word picture is used in different contexts. But, because we're familiar with its usage, it's not confusing.

Bulloch History with Roger Allen

Englishman John Abbott was nuts about bugs. As a child, his parents noticed that wherever he went, he wanted to catch and then draw the biggest and the most unusual insects, no matter what kind. Born on either May 31st or June 1st of 1751, he was soon apprenticed to the famous artist and engraver Jacob Bonneau in his London, England, studio. As his skill increased, he eventually got the attention of Dru Drury of the Royal Society of Entomologists, whom he convinced to pay for him to travel to the "New World." In July of 1773, he set sail ...
