         Lately, I hear so many people talking about their love for asparagus.  This is one food that I just can’t handle. When my niece, Rachel, lived with me at five years of age, she loved asparagus. One night while we were getting ready for dinner, and she announced that all she would be having was asparagus. The funny thing was that she meant it. I had to call my Mom to find out how to cook the veggie. My Mom found it funny that Rachel really wanted this dish. She didn’t even want the cheese sauce that I offered to make for her.  I was actually quite pleased that she was eating in such a healthy manner.  Who knew that at five years old, she loved something so GGGRRREEEEEEENNN?  It definitely came from her Mom.

Random Reflections

         On February 19th I was reading the Kane County Chronicle. I was saddened to learn that Henry Funk who owned Grimm’s Pharmacy in St. Charles had passed away from dementia and health related problems. My sister, Kim and I, worked at Grimms for years. It was a great job at the time.
         I will always fondly remember working with Nancy Anfinson, Phyllis Brown, Annie Matthys, Verneda Walsh, Henry Funk, Paul, Carol Vial, Bunny and Dar Regelbrugge, and Austa. What a great bunch of people.

Helpful Home Hints

Check out this website:

         I was looking for a list of home maintenance jobs to do during the year. It is helpful to have a base list, and then add personal topics to it. I found this one on the above site and wanted to share it with all of you.
          I think we all need to be proactive and not reactive. I don’t want to wait to replace a board until it is rotten and the area leaks, when I can change it when I initially notice the problem. The difference is that it will save money in future repairs if you are proactive.
