Ruby is 100!

By Rosie Moore Our “gem” Ruby Miller of the S & S Bowling Lanes in Fountain City turned 100 years old on January 30. A remarkable day to remember both then and now. I asked her how did she like being 100 and she said wonderful! She has a slight hearing problem but her mind […]

The Month of Love

By Rosie Moore Nearly everyone knows the story of St. Valentine, the imprisoned saint who was killed because he officiated at the marriages of Christian couples. The Romans paid honor to the Roman God of Fertility on February 14th, but St. Valentine didn’t honor pagan idolatry. While in prison St. Valentine wrote a letter to […]

A gathering of hope

By Rosie Moore I recently received a little book written by Helen Hayes called, “A Gathering Of Hope.” We older ones remember Helen I’m sure, but, for the younger ones let me explain that she was a famous actress, born in 1900, died in 1993 of congestive heart failure. A star of many movies, such […]

Practice! Practice!

In some countries such as Germany, Poland, the Netherlands, and the Nordic countries, it is known as St. Stephen’s Day. December […]

Continuing

  By Rosie Moore I want to add the various tributes to Christmas that are celebrated around the world. A very interesting country that celebrates Christmas is India. Compared to other religious festivals, Christmas is quite a small festival in India, due to the number of people who are Christians (about 2.3%) compared to people […]

Isn’t it time?

By Rosie Moore For love and understanding? It behooves me to sadly see the hate and despair between people at especially this blessed time of the year, when we pause to celebrate Christ’s birthday. It is time to put away grudges and anger and think about forgetting slights that we feel were aimed at us […]

Recipes

By Rosie Moore Kroger’s is my favorite place to do my grocery shopping and they reward me by sending me money-saving coupons and also delicious recipes. Thanksgiving has gone by and I know some of you have baked cookies but now it’s time to do some serious cookie-baking for Christmas. Instead of the usual chocolate […]
