These really are “classics.” They remind me of the rolls that we had almost every Sunday and certainly every Thanksgiving. They’re soft, light, a tiny bit sweet, and I could eat about 20 of them in one sitting. Slather on some butter and/or honey when they’re fresh out of the oven and help yourself to as many of them as you can eat.

As often as possible, I avoid flying on commercial airplanes. This is not because I have a fear of flying. It’s also not because I have a fear of crashing, which is what most people mean when they say they’re afraid of flying. No one is actually afraid of flying.

It never ceases to amaze me about the drivers who always have to be first. I don’t know the mentality of such, but it’s obvious that they have to be first. Personally, it’s not one of my priorities. They will ride your bumper and this gives me the hee-bee- geebies!

OOPS!!! Sometimes that about sums up things that happen in life, we all make mistakes and this week we had one of those times at the City. When we sent out the utility bills for electricity, water and garbage fees late last week many of the bills were printed with an incorrect due date.

KIDNEYS are the organs that maintain our water balance and help manage the pH of our bodies. While we generally think of kidneys as organs that get rid of water, they actually conserve water by filtering waste products into urine while returning the rest to the blood stream. Approximately 100 quarts of liquid are filtered through the kidneys daily with only 1½ quarts passing out of the body as urine. High protein diets are hard on the kidneys.

Our community was saddened by the death of Ruby Toeppich this week. She was a blessing in our lives. She was cheerful and never complained of what came her way. I enjoyed greeting her at church and helping get her settled in her pew. She will be missed. Art Methodist Church is observing Ash Wednesday with a service at 6 pm on February 10.

If you ever watch quarterback Peyton Manning of the Denver Broncos call plays you will have heard him call out the word “Omaha” many times. There had been speculation (mainly by me) for years that Peyton was getting paid royalties either by the city or the famous steak company. Not so says Reggie Wayne, receiver for Manning when he was with the Colts.

He may have said them with tongue firmly cheek-implanted, but the late Will Rogers’ gentle observations of the world made the medicines of life go down smoother. Many of his drawls--in print or in person--included this observation: “All I know is what I read in the papers.” Rogers--like the rest of us--now would be hard pressed to properly attribute “all we know,” or, better stated, what we think we know.

No room at the inn. That’s because there isn’t one. An inn. A small hotel. Or large motel. A good place to stay. Not here. Not yet. So many want one. So many visitors ask. And then they go to other towns for lodging. And take their money with them. Groups of people long to spend time here. But there’s no room. Or rooms. Sure, there’s B&Bs. And aren’t we glad! But families and friends want to stay together. In the same place. Not just in the same town or county. Not ...

Dig around under and behind the seat of just about any hunter’s pickup for a while, and you’re likely to find a can of Beanie Weenies. The can will probably be buried beneath a tangle of combination wrenches and camo string, which will be stuck to a roll of duct tape, which will be mashed into an oblong shape against a jack, some pipe wrenches, and a small propane bottle.
