The Virus is causing a great deal of pain and concern. We are fortunate here in North Central Illinois with at least for now, very low numbers being infected. But make no mistake, many many people and businesses are being devastated with what is happening to their indi...

Well, are we all getting a little crazy with the “containment” or “social distancing”?? I know there certainly are people I’m missing. Crazy and scary. We can still get out and walk. We can go down to the Park district and walk or go out to Ross property for a little f...

The good thing about Summer and all that goes with it is the return of friends, family and loved ones for that one weekend a year that says “I just gotta go home”. Well, in my opinion it was a great weekend to be in Walnut for that “I gotta go home “weekend. Super Reun...

This is Holy week, the week o...

Seems Mother nature cannot make up her mind. We have 30’s one day, and 65 degrees the next day. Day Lilly’s lookin pretty yellow, but they are above the sod! Sure, signs of Spring everywhere. The neighbor kids are playing ball every day in the yard and the street, lots...
