It's not the 21st century, it's the 19th. It's 1863 to be exact, and you and other rural families of Jackson, Cass and Bates counties and part of Vernon are forced by the issue of Order Number 11 to "remove from their present places of residence within fifteen days"...

It's Spring - time for the rain to wash away the old and the new to grow in. It's also a perfect time for you to try something new and exciting!
For me, that meant an impulse buy on a Nintendo DS and a Pokémon game to play on it. Even though I haven't owned my own game system since my SNES when I was a child, I figured- hey, it's a new year, new season, time to try something new!
You may be aware that the Blue Ridge Branch closed on March 6 for two weeks of renovation.
Blue Ridge has been recarpeted, painted, and a beautiful new desk has been installed. Most of the branch collections such as nonfiction, audiobooks, and children's materials are in new places, as are the public internet computers.
"I Don't Pretend to be an Ordinary Housewife," Elizabeth Taylor
Helena Cassadine died today. I was there when she crashed Luke and Laura Spencer’s wedding (she looked FABULOUS) and showered them with the stink eye and a Greek curse, ensuring plenty of wacky shenanigans for years to come in Port Charles. I was 20 years old, and everyone in college had skipped class to watch the other wedding of the year on General Hospital (there was also Prince Charles and Princess Di…given how THAT turned out, it appears that Helena must have crashed that wedding too.).
Bring the Temperature Down on Your Spring Cleaning Fever
It’s that time of year again. The epidemic will soon be spreading. It’s called The Spring Cleaning Fever. I get it every year as soon as the weather starts to warm up. I want to go through those cluttered drawers, closets and the ever messy garage. I am searching for tips and ideas, so I go the Internet where I found a lot of useful information. Good Housekeeping had an article by Heloise entitled "Take Control of Clutter". One of the tidbits I gleaned from that information was when serious decluttering is in store, try the ABC method.
