Guilty Pleasures

I used to hear or read where a lot of people I know were off to some exotic island or Hawaii. In earlier times I lived overseas and enjoyed traveling. I’ve visited and lived among castles, Swiss chalets, pyramids, the Jordan River, French towers, and done the hula in Honolulu. Glad I got to do all that. I wonder what people are doing in these crazy pandemic and financial times to get in their travel fix and have something to share on social media.

Fire Up The Grill For National Grilling Month

By Johanna Hicks, Texas Cooperative Extension, Family and Community Health Agent in Hopkins County, [email protected]. My family recently enjoyed gathering to celebrate Fathers’ Day. We fired up the grill and cooked a delicious meal – fish caught from the Galveston Bay and fresh zucchini from our garden. Our neighbors also gathered around on their back porch to cook outdoors. Ahh, the smell of grilling filled the air!
