'On My Honor, I Will Do My Best'

Scout uniform? Check. Scout Oath recited verbatim? Check. Tent pegs inserted securely? Check. S'mores over a campfire? Check. Eagerness to get back to nature and learn lifelong skills? Double-check. W...

 

'The high, thrilling song of the Sirens will transfix him'

Far from her humble beginnings in Utah, Ruby steps off a bus in the Big Apple to find fortune and fame under the glittery lights on Broadway. What she finds is not quite what she expected. "She...

Spicy Dish Made With Spring Garden Bounty

As is normal each spring, some things perk up faster than others. Such is the case with rhubarb, chives and asparagus. Hating to see such things go to waste, I have a couple recipes and a suggestion to share that take advantage of these spring...

Yard Work, Cooking, and Drinking

Finally, a Sunday without snow, although it’s cold and blustery, with spits of rain. Unfortunately, those spits were not nearly enough for this dry country, but they do help to keep our hopes for more rain alive. There was some advancement made...

 

Sounds Like a Broken Record

It’s starting to feel like I’m living through the movie Groundhog Day: another Sunday heralding a return of colder weather, with the prospect of intermittent bouts of snow flurries thrown in for good measure. Early on Sunday, the sky to the west...

 

Sunday Blathering

Why does it seem that every Sunday brews up some not-so-nice weather? Or is it just me that feels that way? Way up here, far beyond the Middle of Nowhere, this past Sunday gave us lots and lots of...

Cooking, Cleaning, Clearing

Yesterday I was asked why there weren’t any recipes last week. I’d simply blathered on long enough about other things that I’d run out of room. So I hope you’re prepared for a bit of an overload about cooking this week. Or you could skip on...

 

Watercolor Workshop at Wheatgrass

One spring afternoon I was driving home to Saint Marie. I happened to hear about a watercolor workshop at the Cottonwood. I'd done a lot of acrylics but very little Watercolor, so I signed up. That's...

 

Springtime in Montana

It’s definitely a Montana-style spring going on: spits of rain one day, flurries of snow the next. Between the two, we measured .08” of moisture last week, and every bit counts. The snow Friday evening measured about 3” of wet fluff. It was...

 

Seeds, Spaghetti and French Bread

The seeds for this year’s garden have been purchased. The seed catalogs were of no help - I’ve continued to ignore both the ones that came snail-mail and the daily barrage of emailed exhortations to have “the best garden ever” if only I’ll...

 

I'm Back

Let me start with a quick apology for having been missing from the Courier for the past month. I really wasn’t procrastinating. Family matters kept me from even thinking about either gardening or cooking. I’ve noticed lots of geese flying north...

 

Doctors Visits and Well Being

MARY HONRUD FOR THE COURIER We’ve had another trip to Billings, this one for a couple of medical reasons. The main one was for another follow-up on Dennis’s shoulder procedure. The healing of that shoulder is proceeding extremely well. He’s...

 

Living With the Whole Life Challenge

During the times I spend doing the Whole Life Challenge (WLC), there’s a new Well Being Practice (WBP - you’d almost think it’s a gov’t program with all these acronyms) each week. This current challenge started with making a “Do Not Do...

 

Procrastinating Again

MARY HONRUD FOR THE COURIER I'd been so good lately at getting my column written and sent in well before the Monday deadline, that having having procrastination raise its oh-so-tempting head really...

 

Back in Montana

We are home again after our latest trip to Florida. We spent a great deal of time down there hanging out at ice rinks, watching our grandsons playing hockey. They’re in different age groups, the older being a squirt while the younger is a mite. Bot...

 

Enduring Epiphytes Exposed? Or Further Florida Flora

There are many more epiphytes than most of us non-botanists are aware. I've done a little more studying on these plants, which comprise roughly ten percent of all plant species. So if you are bored...

 

Florida Fauna

MARY HONRUD FOR THE COURIER While walking along foot paths towards the beach on Sanibel Island in Florida, I took note of the thick "vines" I thought were snaking their way up and around other trees....

Lucky Clover 4-H Club Report

The Lucky Clover 4H club met on Dec. 13, 2020 at the Nashua civic center. We first decorated the outside of the senior center for Christmas with a Nativity set and other décor. We did our regular business items first then went over the wreath...

 

Ramblin' Man Ron Garwood Hosts Book Signing

Ron Garwood's stories flow like a river from him, bending into an unexpected oxbow as the story twists and turns, drifting off into tributaries as asides from the main flow, and erupting into rapids a...

 

Blah Humbug

It's so easy to waste time scrolling through all the apps on my phone, instead of what I should be doing. I know I need to get a column written, typed up (iPad usage), proofread, and sent in. But...
