Hello from Baldwin. How is everyone’s week going?
I hope everyone is having a great one.
I hope you enjoyed the warm weather at the first of the week, because by the time you read this we are suppose to have cold temperatures again. But it is still January, even though it was 70 degrees on Tuesday.
Wrap up and stay warm and they said something about snow again.
Happy birthday wishes go out next week to someone very special to me, my dog, Sally Sue Jones, will be turning 7 years old on Sunday.
I know you all may think I am crazy wishing my dog happy birthday, but she is a faithful friend and companion. Happy birthday girl!
Also celebrating are Krista R. Farthing of Poosey Ridge and Janet Sue Smith of Irvine, Sunday; Gabe Perkins and Nevada Combs, Tuesday; Regina Lovings, Friday; and a dear friend, P.J. Bishop, Saturday.
I hope all of you have very happy birthdays and many more happy ones to come.
Happy anniversary wishes go out next week to Mason and Joan Estes on Saturday.
I hope you have a very happy anniversary and many more happy years to come.
Well, I wonder if the groundhog will see his shadow on Saturday?
If he does, the old saying is we will have six more weeks of bad weather.
Does anybody think about this like I do?
In six weeks, winter is just about over.
Next Thursday, the Baldwin 4-H Club will meet at 6:30 p.m. in the fellowship hall of Bethel Christian Church. Hope to see you there.
Well, I don’t have a lot of news this week, so I am going to go for now. Let me know if you hear any news. Just give me a call at 623-4579 or e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Hobo stew is great for camp cooking
This is the time of year when folks like to go camping or cook outdoors. I like to try new food items either on the camping trail or out on my outdoor grill.
Here are some recipes I have tried that were really good.
Running or walking: which is better?
Running and walking both have their pros and cons.
Recent research, published in the journal Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise found that habitual runners gain less weight than habitual walkers, when the amount of energy they expend in their workouts is the same.
And another study, published in the same month in a different journal, showed that running is no better than walking for the prevention of high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, and coronary heart disease.

Will you be truly happy if you win the lottery?
A Psychology Today article titled “What Will You Do if You Win the $550 Million Powerball Lottery?” caught my attention. Helping lottery winners with their money is my long-time gig.
The author, Galen Guengerich, Ph.D., is a minister who admits that he has “never been much of a lottery person.” He makes a point that I hammer on in two bestsellers, “Life Lessons from the Lottery” and “Son of a Son of a Gambler: Winners Losers and What to Do When You Win the Lottery.”
