Life’s Thorns

  By Rosie Moore September and October were not good months for me. Let me tell you. Labor Day I opened the door of my pantry and bottle of vinegar fell on my left foot. I doctored it with ice and pain medicine and it seemed to get better. Then, suddenly, it became worse. When […]

Odds and Ends

By Rosie Moore   John Grisham has done it again. The words seem to flow from his brain unto paper in no time at all. He has written thirty-two novels, one work of non-fiction, a collection of stories, and six novels for young readers. I just finished his newest novel, “The Reckoning” and it is […]

Rosie’s World

By Rosie Moore Fall has finally arrived, as denoted by the colder weather, and the falling leaves.

Tattoos and beards

By Rosie Moore I don’t like either one of them. I have quite a few friends and relatives who have both, but that doesn’t mean I don’t like them, I just don’t like what they are doing to themselves. I can understand why men grow beards and mustaches, they just get tired of shaving or […]

Rosie’s World

By Rosie Moore Due to a lovely summer of gentle rains and abundant sunshine, the veggies in our gardens have grown beyond  our expectations. Corn, summer squash, peppers, green beans, tomatoes, zucchini–you name it, there is plenty to go around. Plenty to can, freeze, give to neighbors and friends, yes, there are plenty to go […]


By Rosie Moore At my granddaughter’s wedding we received small packets of wildflower seeds. I planted them and they are growing beautifully and ready to be re-potted into bigger pot. It looks like there are three or four varieties. A wildflower is a flower that grows in the wild, meaning it was not intentionally seeded […]

The first international singing star

By Rosie Moore When I sit down at my piano I play a lot of the old-fashioned hymns that I love and also some contemporary hymns that are becoming favorites today. One of my favorite singer of hymns is George Beverly Shea, and I play a lot of his hymns that I can still hear […]
