Hundreds turn out to revived event benefitting DN Child Care Council

One of Nash’s creations bursts with color. Submitted
The first thing one notices when they step into Adrien Nash’s Hiouchi home is the number of knickknacks that fill it.

One antique cabinet is the abode of wizards, dragons and clowns. Nash has devoted a room to pirate memorabilia including replicas of swords, axes and pistols and production stills from the 1999 Jodie Foster movie “Anna and the King.”

Outside across the lawn and through a hedge overgrown with ivy is his fairy garden dotted with frogs, toads, elves and a fishing boy. A crocodile lounges in a stream.

Grist for the Mill: Water for our future

Thomas Cox, a third-generation Imperial Valley farmer, leaps across an open irrigation canal that will water a new wheat crop in Brawley. McClatchy-Tribune
I have a road trip habit that might, just possibly, annoy my husband. Whenever we drive by open irrigation canals, I make up songs about the idiocy of open water transportation in arid climates. 

Yes, I am that nerdy.

I lived for many years in the shadow of New York City’s largest reservoir. The aqueduct that takes the water to New York is a seemingly endless, 15-foot-high flat-topped wall snaking its way through the woods. Inside is a concrete pipe big enough to hold a Model T. The Ashokan Reservoir and its aqueduct were built in the early 1900s, by hand. If they could enclose their aqueduct, why are open canals and aqueducts so common here?

Church Notebook: ‘Martyrs’ testimony from Pakistani

Well, it’s “that time” again.

My white Gloxinia has “gone to sleep” and been tucked away for its winter nap, and the pink one will soon follow.

While I have many other plants, these two are my favorites because they just continually illustrate faith and the surprises God seems to love to spring on us.
