Today's Features

  • My friends can come up with some strange things at times. I was just given a sour dough starter. It rests in a gallon Ziplock bag, must be mushed around every morning and more sugar, milk and flour added so it can multiply. This wonderful old yeast like dough continues to bubble and form gas as it works on my kitchen counter. One day soon some of it will become bread, hopefully.

  • The Mora Valley Chamber of Commerce its their annual meeting Monday, Jan. 24 at the CHET Fire Department in Cleveland. The meeting was well attended with more than  20 people present.

  • Us old farmers and ranchers never slow down, particularly when the “do you remember” topic comes up. Yes, this causes some of us to remember and record just one more story as we put pencil to paper.

    My down-the- road neighbors invited me in for a cup of hot mint tea (refreshing) and of course old time stories came up. Their horses were probably listening to us as they grazed just outside their picture windows.
