Libby’s Recipes: Pineapple Casserole

I am planning to make this pineapple casserole…It’s a little different from the one I usually make in that this one calls for brown sugar.

Libby’s Recipes: Jezebel Jelly, Orange Slice Candy Cake

Both of these recipes are from my sister. The jelly she makes and the cake is a specialty of one of her friends.

More Observations

I recently wrote a column about a church that is struggling with a dwindling membership most of which would be classified as seniors.

This recipe is from my niece Krista Allen. It is one of her favorites from her grandmother Kaye Perkins of Tennessee.

More Observations

Are you one who believes that what is to be will be, and if there is a rare
coincidence in life, well what’s to explain? Life, some say, is all previously
planned, and we are only here for the ride.

Libby’s Recipes: Orange Fruit Salad

This recipe comes from my sister and is so simple you don’t even have to boil water- my kind of recipe.

Libby’s Recipes: Pistachio Pudding

This week’s recipe is a favorite of my nephew Jeff Huggins- and I am partial to it, too.

Observations No. 3

I am a member of the MMC-D – hospital – Auxiliary, and part of my duties is to work a four hour shift in the hospital Gift Shop once a month. The job is not hectic; we had $27.20 in cash sales today. Perhaps the most challenging part of the job is working the cash (computer) register. For some, it is a breeze; for others because it is encountered only monthly, it causes some mild anxiety.


I recently saw the following message on a sign in front of a local church: What part of SHALT NOT don’t you understand. Of course it refers to the admonitions stated in the Good Book known as the Big X or the Big Ten. Recently I heard a person who offered a comment concerning how a friend dealt with one of these no-nos, the shall nots, in the Bible.
