    Handling the Holi-Daze!

    By: Maggie Riney Ah, the holidays. The holidays are a time of generosity, a time of family, and a time to avoid sitting by Aunt Bertha because “No, I’m not dating anyone,” and, “Yes, I did hear that cousin Allie is engaged to a nice investment banker.” While in between sips (who am I kidding, GLASSES) of your mom’s boxed wine and Uncle Kenny’s heated political debate with Great-Aunt Muriel that climate change does, in…

    Gratitude: A Word for All Seasons

    Gratitude, it’s a word that seems to get tossed around a lot sometimes and yet I’m not so sure that the true meaning of the word is known to some. Just for the sake of argument, gratitude, as defined by Merriam-Webster’s online dictionary is “a feeling of appreciation or thanks.” A secondary definition is “the state of being grateful; thankfulness.” It seems as though we don’t seem to have quite enough of this going around…

    All Hallows Eve, beware….

    By: Christy V. Temple It’s that time of the year when fiendish fools and gruesome ghouls depart their hiding places, Skeletons crawl out from the blackest of graves.                         A chilled wind blows through the tops of the tormented trees,  Moaning and wailing pervades the very air you breathe,         And no one is safe from the depths of darkness swirling around your anguished mind.

    Football, Fun, and Fantastic Tailgating Foods

    By: Christy V. Temple             It’s that time of the year again when summer has now officially passed into fall and the leaves on the trees will begin turning into their brightly-hued colors of red, orange, and gold. It’s also a time when people start turning to the great outdoors as the weather is starting to cool a little and making time for campfires, hayrides, and all sorts of great activities. One of those greatest…

    Kentucky Libraries Unbound: Take Two

    By: Christy V. Temple Okay, I uploaded to the Daviess County Public Library website the first in my series of blogs about the Kentucky Libraries Unbound consortium around the middle of August. Now, that we are at the end of the month, oh where does the time go, I have decided to provide some additional information to the first primer about using this database that has everything to do with ebooks, audiobooks, and streaming video.…

    Kentucky Libraries Unbound: Take One

    Kentucky Libraries Unbound is a consortium of libraries across the state of Kentucky that has partnered together to provide a wide range of digital formats to library users through each of their individual public libraries as long as they have a library card. Kentucky Libraries Unbound has been around for quite some time now since the Daviess County Public Library has been participating in this consortium since at least 2008. I’m not sure of the…

    A classic book I should have read in high school

    By: Christy V. Temple Well, I guess you could say that sometimes in life we have great intentions of doing a lot of things and yet we somehow always manage to put them off for one reason or another. I started out in this world as an A#1 procrastinator to the fullest extent possible. If it meant cleaning my room, doing homework, studying, etc. etc., I would find a way to put it off. I…

    Farmer’s Market a big success in Owensboro, KY

    By: Christy V. Temple It’s summer time and the living is easy, or so they say. In any case, this time of year is great for being able to eat the freshest produce available. The growing season is longer and we are grateful to be able to reap some amazing fruits and vegetables that we can tend to take for granted at other times of the year when it’s cold and dormant outside. Personally, summer…

    Kentucky Travel Destinations

    By: Christy V. Temple Summer time is here again and it’s time to do some traveling. Most people think of traveling to Florida or some other warm-weather locale at this time of the year. However, you should look no further than your own home state also to find some great travel destinations. Kentucky has a myriad number of destinations that you can travel to in a day and have enough time to enjoy yourself while…
