  • Jonah 1:1-3: “Now the word of the Lord came unto Jonah the son of Amittai saying, arise, go to Nineveh, that great city and cry against it, for their wickedness is come up before me. But Jonah rose up to flee unto Tarshish from the presence of the Lord, and went down to Joppa; and he found a ship going to Tarshish; so he paid the fare thereof and went into it, to go with them unto Tarshish from the presence of the Lord.”

  • Last night I woke up laughing from a dream.  What I remember most vividly is an out of place baby elephant sitting in a watering trough spraying water all over my poor wife. Thinking about it even now I can’t help but chuckle, but I don’t know if I could explain it fully.  You’d have to know about the little white bull and the muddy cowboy for it to make sense!

  • It was historically known as the “Crutcher Tavern” and when it is fully restored, Taylorsville will have a restaurant to be called the “Polk House.” It will have the potential to rival famous historic Kentucky eateries.

  • “Close your eyes,” I told Mom and Dad before pulling the sheet off of our purchase. “I want to surprise you.”

  • I spent most of the day on Sunday in the vegetable garden. It was both a beautiful day and a melancholy one because of the 10th anniversary of September 11th. This helps me stay on task actually…quiet contemplation and physical work is a good combination. I was motivated to get the garden cleaned up and replanted with some fall crops like turnips, beets and lettuces. The remaining empty beds were planted with a cover crop.  

  • Crop prospects as of August 1 appear to be mostly good for Kentucky crops in 2011. Yields are projected to be above 2010 levels, according to the Kentucky Field Office of USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service.
