Harold Monk, of Denham Springs, Louisiana, is going to be famous one of these days. Right up there with Nick Tesla and Al Einstein, and that other fellow, the one who invented the whoopie cushion. OK, maybe not him, but at least those other guys. The reason Harold is going to become a household name is because he’s invented a machine that will allow hogs to open a hopper, but not other animals.

These green foods are one of the four basic supplements that I recommend for health. Green cleans.

They’re famous for duck calls in Monroe, LA, and a few blocks away lives a Christian entertainer, Dr. Dennis Swanberg. Known as “The Swan,” he has long been known for impersonations that sound every bit as “real” to listeners as the calls do to ducks. What are the odds that such well-known personalities would live a few blocks apart?

The kitchen table was the center of activity for the family of six. It filled up the small kitchen even when no one was in there, but when the family ate it seemed they wore the room, instead of entering it. With any company present, any move, even reaching for the salt, had to be planned and carefully executed lest disaster ensue. The two youngest members of the family, twins Stephen and David Bynum, were a couple of my best friends, and I spent as much time as possible in their home during m ...

For years my thermostat was broken. No, they weren’t “Power Surges,” they weren’t MELT DOWNS! There is nothing that can explain the MELT DOWNS! Sometimes I would put my head in the freezer to get relief. The men at the Coop. didn’t ask me why I was doing this. Guess, they knew better.

On June 15 we had a huge influx of female bats visiting the cave to bear their young. Our 1.6 million mothers-to-be already made your mouth drop when they began their nightly bug hunt from the cave. When another 4-6 million joined this colony it made it something of a memory-making spectacle! The mother bats at the Eckert James River Bat Cave have all given birth to their pups at this date.

D is for density as in bone density – a statistic that many women are concerned with. Bone density is a measure of the quantity of bone, not the quality. I like to make a distinction here, because bone quality is an important concern that is being overlooked by many. Bone quality concerns reduced risk of fracture which should be distinguished from bone quantity as expressed as bone density.
