Hospitality is such an important ingredient in so many successful recipes.
I like going places where the people are kind.
And I usually go back – again and again.

Old lady disease?
Some of my favorite people in the world are old ladies!
The first “old lady” that I really knew was my husband’s grandmother. (My grandmothers lived long distances away and I saw them infrequently -- my grandfathers were both deceased.)
The Preacher’s Corner
I have found that life is the best teacher
Many people know the ancient Greek story of Sisyphus and his rock. He was a mythical king who was punished by being set to the task of pushing a large rock up a hill, only to watch it roll down again, and to have to repeat this through eternity. I think every preacher can identify with old Sisyphus when faced with ‘the relentless return of the Sabbath’ and the necessity of thinking up a sermon for every Sunday that rolls by.
Letters to the Editor
Square needs cleaning:
As a citizen of Holly Springs I am concerned about the beauty of our town square. Walking around the square, I see litter everywhere; name it, I have seen it (cigarette butts galore, fast food containers, newspaper and all other kinds of litter). Even in the concrete planters, there are cigarette butts and waste paper.
Please take time to remember our local “heroes” who are serving in war zones around the world.
