Don’t miss the latest copy of “Vine”
I send my apologies to Dorothy Moon Senter in the big boo boo that I made last week in my column. I put that Dorothy was the daughter of the late Bobby Moon. In fact Bobby was her brother. No one told me except my husband. Dorothy’s parents were Jimmy and Doris Moon. I knew better but it was just one of those whacky things that we do sometimes. Whacky is a definite word in my vocabulary that I use a good bit.
John and Gail Wade went to Clarksville to a surprise birthday party for a brother-in-law.
The people of the Buckhead Baptist Church are enjoying a good prayer meeting at the pastorium of Rev. Les Roberts their interim pastor. They are studying the book of Act each week.
It is time for you to look around to find the free publication of the news from the “Vine” of the Lake Oconee Baptist Youth publication. It can be found in many places. Theresa Wallace is working with the youth and is doing a great job. She is writing each month and it is about the “Wallace Clan” going to school. She’s using this to bring out some character growth for the youth. She has some truth in her writing and some fiction about the people in the story. But it is all to the glory of God. Get your copy and enjoy.
I subscribe to several food and health magazines. I was thrilled at something that I learned. I tried it. I was pleased for myself. I read that if you wrap a banana in a paper towel and put it in an open Ziplock bag that it will last up to 10 days. Since we have used up to 25 bananas in a week, or less I thought that I would try it. I was very well pleased. I got the gallon-size storage Ziplock bag and wrapped two bananas together but separated. Then I could place more in the same bag but I had them lying flat not on each other. I put then lying flat in a cool place with the bag open and flat. Usually in a one-week’s time my bananas are all but ruined even if I buy only 10 or 12. With this method for myself I found that the bananas only have some brown spots but they are still firm. They are still good. I was thrilled. I was happy for my find. It’s up to you if you want to try it. Some of you may have known about it but it was my just time to know.
