  • Remembering Bull-Nose Rings

    Gwen Cornwell, Remember When|Jul 10, 2019

    If you grew up as a country kid you may remember seeing, or having, bulls around your area that sported a Bull Ring. These bull rings were not anything fancy or dressy for the bull, although many of these rings of the past were made of brass, which could be considered fancy.

  • Visitors and Rhubarb

    Mary Honrud, For the Courier|Jul 10, 2019

    This past week a gardening club, led by Mary Christianson, came to visit me, to view my yard and garden. They, like me, love to see what others have done to beautify their outdoor space.

Now, incorporating those new ideas and doing the actual work to implement them is a different proposition. While they were here, I learned that I had been misidentifying...
