Margarita’s, Margarita’s, Margarita’s! Let’s celebrate Cinco de Mayo. Cinco de Mayo is a celebration held on May 5th. It is celebrated nationwide in the United States and regionally in Mexico. The date is observed in the United States as a celebration of Mexican heritage and pride. Often mistaken for Mexican Independence Day (which is Sept. 16), Cinco de Mayo commemorates the 1862 Battle of Puebla between the victorious ragtag army of largely Mexican Indian soldiers against the invading French forces of Napoleon III. Mexican Americans, during the...

PROBLEM: Many people go to the pet store and just start picking out fish for their new tank like an interior decorator picks out new furniture for a mansion. Often the only criteria is what looks good; i.e. the most colorful fish or the most impressive. Occasionally, their checkbook makes the decisions and only the cheap fish are selected. While there is nothing wrong with desiring the nicest-looking fish for your aquarium, or simply being economical, there is often very little thought given to the long term “big picture.” Can your tank really hold that many fish? Will that fish outgrow the...

Whether you have rural acreage, a suburban backyard or an urban lot, you may be able to raise chickens. No kidding. Keeping a few hens in your backyard will give you fresh eggs that are significantly more nutritious than what you normally buy at the supermarket.

I made that. I find the most joy over making things that cost me little or nothing to make or create. Not because I am a cheap person but, to just show myself how creative and inventive I can be.
When I was a little girl, I had a best friend that lived across the street from us. Her Mother sewed and she would make clothes for all of them to wear to Church. I remember going over on Saturday’s and Aunt...
