Hello from Baldwin.
How is everyone’s week going?
I hope everyone is having a great one.
According to the calendar and the weatherman, spring started yesterday, but it doesn’t feel much like spring does it?
But with the buttercups blooming and the grass greening up, it looks a little like spring. I even saw somebody mowing their yard over the weekend.
It soon will be time to plow the gardens and get them planted. Can’t wait for the fresh vegetables, how about you?
Happy birthday wishes go out next week to a very dear lady who is a dear friend of mine, Diana Wells Ross, Monday; Rodney Dixon and Emily Jones, Tuesday; Amy Dixon, Thursday; Ronald Burrus, Elena Habets and Brian Thomas Hiten, Friday.
I hope all of you have very happy birthdays and many more happy ones to come.
Happy anniversary wishes go out next week to my brother-in-law and sister, Henry and Nelda Smith, Friday. They will be celebrating their 38th anniversary. I hope you have a happy one and many more to come.
I had a wonderful time with friends of mine last Saturday at a birthday party in honor of Miss Riley Cate Reynolds.
Riley was celebrating her third birthday. She was surrounded by her family in the fellowship hall of Salem Christian Church on Saturday afternoon. What a great party it was.
Riley is the daughter of Todd and Crystal Reynolds of Poosey Ridge.
Thanks for including me in the festivities, I had a wonderful time.
Salem Christian Church will be having a pre-Easter revival, Thursday, March 28, and Friday, March 29, beginning at 7 o’clock each night.
Bro. Raymond Tincher will be the evangelist for the revival. The church invites you and welcomes you to worship with them.
Well, I guess that’s all for now. If you hear any news, be sure and let me know. Give me a call at 623-4579 or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Muffins, and not the kind you wear on one’s head...
I spent a couple of weeks this past month in Texas. One of my best friends who lives in the Dallas area developed the best recipe to use bran in a muffin. I have found this to be a great breakfast meal epically if one is one the go and no time to stop and fix a meal. Just pop into the microwave oven to reheat
Local farmers markets abound in Madison County
We all know we should eat at least five servings of fruits and vegetables a day, but many of us don’t get the recommended servings. Fruits and vegetables are important to our diet because they provide necessary nutrients and are high in dietary fiber and low in calories, fat and cholesterol. They provide a variety of phytochemicals, antioxidants and nutrients that help you stay healthy in a variety of ways.
Tomatoes are the most popular vegetable grown in the United States, according to studies done at the University of Illinois. Despite being so popular, no vegetable or plant is problem-proof. Here are some problems that may occur.
Things are different today, especially movies and cars
I was just thinking the other day about how different things are today when compared to how things were when I was young.
Rose rosette disease symptoms appearing now
There have been several roses brought into the office in the past week exhibiting the same symptoms. These plants have excessive thorns and abnormal shoot development. Unfortunately, these roses are suffering from a disease called rose rosette.
It’s Yard Sale Season
Yard sale season has arrived! If you, like me, love yard sales, this weekend will be a great opportunity to shop the first US 25 yard sale. If you just hit the sales in Madison County it will probably keep you busy all morning.

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.
