  • Canine influenza is on the move in the United States. A new strain of the flu has led to the death of eight dogs and sickened more than 1,700 in the Chicago area. Now dogs in other states including Wisconsin, Georgia, Texas, Ohio and Indiana are getting sick. Authorities are not yet sure if the strain of the virus is the same, but are urging awareness.

    University of Kentucky Veterinary Diagnostic Lab pathologist Lynne Cassone said there is no reason to panic, but dog owners should be vigilant.

  • My interest in hardy geraniums started in about 1996. In European gardens they were as commonplace as phlox was in American perennial gardens. Twenty years later and hardy geraniums are available, in all their glory, at most garden centers. Experience has taught us which ones are suited to our warm summer climate.

  • Now that spring has sprung and summer is near, weddings are far and wide. Having just performed a wedding in my own church, I cannot help to think of the 1999 movie, “The Runaway Bride.”

  • The other night my health insurance company called me and left a message. I guess that’s a good thing, but I wouldn’t really know because I could only understand about one word in ten.

    Part of the problem was the connection. It was really bad. I know it wasn’t my answering machine. And yes, I actually have an answering machine, not just voicemail. Anyway, other messages are clear and easily understood, so the connection problem was not on my end.
