  • Today, I want to touch on some New Year’s resolutions. I have some new ones to offer to you for consideration.

    To have more patience, whether it is when you are behind a slow driver or in a slow-moving grocery line, join me in working on having more patience.

    Enjoy life. Don’t get so bogged down in everyday living that you don’t have time for fun with friends and family or just something fun that you haven’t done in a long time.

  • If you’re a foodie like me, things used in cooking, such as a slow cooker or blender for instance, make great Christmas gifts. In fact, 2011’s food processor was one of my favorite gifts.

    This past Christmas I got a new cookbook and instantly looked through it for recipe ideas.

    The cookbook is “Meet Me at the Garden Gate: An Invitation to Seasonal Traditions and Southern Hospitality.”

  • At one point in his life, Central Hardin High School graduate Jordan Logsdon wanted to be in a rock ‘n’ roll band.

    “I really enjoyed rock ‘n’ roll music,” Logsdon said.

    That was before the now 21-year-old DJ/producer went to his first electronic dance music event.

    Once Logsdon went to such a party and saw the crowds getting into the music produced onstage, he was hooked. He knew he wanted to produce the same kind of music and see the event from the perspective of the DJ.

    Traditionally, January is the time we review the events and progress of the past year and plan and set goals for the year ahead. 

    Perhaps this tradition is fitting considering the origin of the month’s name. The word January originated from the Roman god Janus whose image is depicted by two faces; one looking backward and one looking forward.
