I know all of you have been sitting on the edge of your seats, wondering What is it? Well, it is an air cabin filter. And I bet you thought they were only for airplane cabins. Well low and behold, all cars have them. They are located behind the glove box. Mr. Ken, being the […]

So I was sitting and reading the other day, when Mr. Ken comes bounding down the stairs. He is mumbling something about “Have to get to the store as soon as possible.” Usually, the only time Mr. Ken “bounds” is when there is a donut involved. Away he goes and comes back about an hour […]

Even though we are in the midst of a January thaw, there is another winter storm predicted for later today. It is so nice to see a touch of spring inside though! My dear mother-in-law sent us this planter of bulbs for Christmas and they are blooming like crazy. This little bit of sunshine sure […]
