THE OLD ‘BEAN POT’

Luke has been cooking with cast iron for most of his adult life. He first began using the old kettle on the right in the late sixties when his uncle presented it to him for a birthday present.

THE OLD ‘BEAN POT’

This past week on one of those cool clear mornings, the urge to do a bit of campfire cooking hit me. I had fashioned a couple of ‘pot hangers’ from a dry cedar limb and another from a deer antler and was anxious to put my old cast iron Dutch kettles to work. My wife saw me rustling around the fire pit in front of my little cabin situated in the trees behind the house and asked what I was up to.

Will investors change behavior after the pandemic?

The COVID-19 pandemic may end up changing our lives in some significant ways. To cite one example, it’s likely we’ll see a lot more people continue to work remotely, now that they’ve seen the effectiveness of tools such as videoconferencing. Education, too, may be forever changed in some ways. Perhaps just as important, though, is how many people may now think more about the future – including how they invest.

Spring for All

Spring for All

The beauty that is Spring lies in the promise of new growth seemingly occurring overnight; trees are leafing out, flowers are pushing up through the soil, bees and birds and butterflies are fluttering in the sunshine.

It’s a Date(line), Keith

It was a Friday night in June, the 7th of June, specifically. The year, even more specifically, was 1996. Twenty-five years later, I still remember it was a Friday. I’m not sure how this event popped onto my radar. I was rushing around through life with 3 kids: 10, 7, & 6. This would’ve been deep into our sports years, though June usually meant baseball was all but over. Still, school was out, and summer was in full swing. But there it was, a news story to top all news stories. I wasn’t even paying attention to the television, until I heard my then husband say, “Hey, look at this.

The on-scene reporter was rapidly talking – murder blah blah, children blah blah, Darlie Routier blah blah, Rowlett blah blah. I think I may have dropped the plate I was drying. The world stopped spinning.
