  • Redsfest brings out the kid in me

    If you have never gone before, I would suggest when next December is here for you to visit Redsfest at the Duke Energy Center in Cincinnati.

    We all have a little child inside of us and it was apparent that mine came out Dec. 4, when I got pictures with current and former Reds players.

    I have been a Reds fan since as far back as I can remember and when I first came here to Grant County, I told everyone how I slid on the carpet at the television when I was 5, imitating the 1990 World Champion Cincinnati Reds.

  • These are a few of my favorite things

    Around October, I start mixing my recipe for the holidays.
    I begin with Christmas music, and if I don’t have a good portion of Bing Crosby, mixed with Rosemary Clooney and dashes of Frank Sinatra, Burl Ives and Johnny Mathis, I become Grinch-afied. A smidge of the Davis sisters, Skeeter and Betty Jack, singing “Christmas Boogie,” is just icing on the cake. Most of these artists were popular in the 40’s, before I was born, but I listened to Skeeter, as a love-sick teen in my West Virginia home, in the 60’s.
