Georgie's View: Don’t Call Me I’ll Call You

By Georgie Bright Kunkel

To be special is to be at the right place at the right time. Every famous person had the intelligence and ingenuity to stand out from the crowd in some special way. It was the person who found themselves in the headlines that gained fame and notoriety. In centuries past, it was the warrior in battle who was lauded. Women were rarely thought to be worthy of fame.

Pat's View: “New Year Ponderings”

Even Cisco Morris---the guy who gives gardening tips---is likely better suited to forecast the year ahead: “Oo la la,” he might say. “If you prune too early, you could wind up killing the tree!”

And I say, if you prune a plum tree too early, won’t you wind up with prunes and not plums?
