  • Dave Denning was already firmly ensconced in a job he had worked at since graduating from high school, one he was steadfastly committed to, when he happened by a physical therapy room one day.
    He thought to himself, “I’d like to work at that.” Little did he know, or even dream,  that he would become a physical therapist, helping others strive for a more comfortable and active life, while also lifting their spirits.

  • Singing in the Homestead Hen House
    In spite of the cold, one-digit temperature weather, snow, strong winds and zero egg production, the “girls” – Blackie, Fuzzy and Anita – are still singing…as early as 6 o’clock in the morning!
    Since Bill put a nightlight in their quarters to help warm the air, they seem to be feeling pretty chipper.
    I wonder if a higher-wattage bulb would bring fishing worms to the surface and maybe give a jump-start to egg production again?
