Be Fruitful

ShepherdCalls_WPSeveral days ago, the Kansas City Star ran a front-page story about carrier pigeons, aka passenger pigeons. The article seemed so unbelievable, I checked it out in several other sources. It seems this bird was once the most prolific bird in America and perhaps in the world. Historical documents of our earliest settlers tell of flocks so large they darkened the sky and took hours to pass over. A Virginia

Poosey Digest: Edith’s Cornballs

by Freida Marie Crump

PooseyDigest_WPGreetings from Poosey.

Pity our poor National Anthem. As it celebrates its 200th birthday this year the song has been much maligned as “unsingable,” “war like,” and simply old-fashioned. The fellow who penned it after watching the bombardment of Fort McHenry in the War of 1812 meant it to be nothing more than a poem. He never intended for someone to set it to a piece
