  • Happy Father’s Day

    Sixty Seconds with Judi Now, I don’t know about you, but buying my Dad a Father’s Day gift is always so much more difficult than choosing something for my mom. My dad is a practical man. One year I bought him a very expensive sweater which he wore to paint the house.  At that moment
  • We be Jammin’

    Sixty Seconds with Judi Don’t be afraid, I am not trying to channel my inner Rastafarian. I am just so excited that strawberry season is finally here and it’s time for me to start making jam!  I think Strawberry jam may be my favorite. I don’t know if it’s because they are the first fruits
  • Celebrating 90 years of Summer Fun!

    Sixty Seconds with Judi In the 1920’s Arthur Linvill grabbed his horse and a scoop and dredged out the pond hidden in the hollow so the neighborhood families could have a decent swimming hole.
