    The room was a buzz with cheerful hellos as men in patriotic lapel pins set out extra chairs for the unexpected large audience.

  • We know what a will is.  A legal document that establishes how we want all our worldly possessions to be divided amongst the people we care about and the organizations we want to support in our death. 

    Today I want to write about your “Living Will.”  This is what we want to pass on to those around us by the way we live our lives.  Our legacy of beliefs, morals and attitudes that we hope are communicated by the way we live our lives.

  • Jon and Sylvia Bednarski just wanted to do things the right way when they began developing their farm some 13 years ago. They didn’t expect to be rewarded for it.

    The Bednarski’s were recently named the 2013 Kentucky Leopold Conservation Award recipients for the conservation efforts they’ve undertaken at their Sherwood Acres Farm. The award, from the Sand County Foundation and the Kentucky Agricultural Council, honors a Kentucky landowner for their “achievement in voluntary stewardship and management of natural resources.”

  • A minister was speaking to a Sunday School class about the things money can’t buy.

    “It can’t buy laughter and it can’t buy love” he told them. Driving his point home he said, “What would you do if I offered you $1,000 not to love your mother and father?”

    Stunned silence ensued. Finally a small voice queried, “How much would you give me not to love my big sister?”

    Last week we looked at the importance of laughter and joy in life.  Can we make these a part of a “living will?”
