Geo. K's tree-like Christmasy shrub also called Winter Creeper

Jon Halsey writes:
To further add to George K's wonderment and confusion this plant is probably known to some as Winter Creeper. Although highly invasive it does have its uses.

In our case, our drive gives way to a steep drop before the back and side yards start. We stabilized this with heavy rock and then to keep that from rolling into the yard we planted Winter Creeper which has grown to a nice two foot shrub like appearance and being Evergreen remains attractive year round. The fruits are similar to those in the picture but a little more on the orange side.

The site describes is as follows:
Euonymus fortunei (Turkz.) Hand.-Maz.
Bittersweet family (Celastraceae)

Origin: China, Japan, Korea

Winter creeper, or creeping euonymus, is an evergreen perennial vine that was introduced as an ornamental groundcover.
Please note that any queries re: the abbreviations above (Turkz. Hand.-Maz.) should be forwarded to Billy Joe Fudge.

Bittersweet messages: Maybe its hybrid Amerimental or Orientican Bittersweet

Sort of

George Kolbenschlg writes:
Thanks to all who responded to my photo of the bittersweet vine. After further review of the vine/tree itself and careful reading of all of the input from my friends I have concluded that the confusion over whether it's an Oriental Bittersweet or an American Bittersweet can be blamed on both me and mother nature. First, the photo I sent was really not a very good representation. That's my bad. But Mother Nature my also be partly to blame. According to Google "It is expected that Oriental Bittersweet might hybridize with native bittersweet." So it's possible we have an Ameriental or an Orientican Bittersweet and everyone is right. Sort of. --George Kolbenschlg

Link: Abraham Lincoln - The Temperance Man and Lemonade

And a link to the memory of the one Adair Countian who voted for Abraham Lincoln for President

With the high interest in the Steven Spielberg movie, "Lincoln," here's a link to a great Lincoln anecdote at the Illinois Ancesters website: How Lincoln answered a delicate question. It was brought to mind thinking about how time changes everything. Next to Jesus, Abraham Lincoln may be the most popular ever historical figure in Adair County - but in 1860, he got only 1 vote in the county: The lone vote, according to indisputable research by "Jim," was that of "Uncle Gum" Russell. Jim's Gem of a Story is told as: A profile in courage: The single Adair Countian who voted for Lincoln in 1860

Poetry by Robert Stone: More than self, a sonnet

More than self
- a sonnet first intended to be named "When nothing seems to satisfy"
Beyond the daily staying just alive,
both stances -- working for and taking from --
attract the diligent who briskly strive
to match their hopes or shine with trinkets dumb.

Beyond the comfort of enough success,
both urges -- normal needs and wild desires --
contend within unsatisfied who dress
to show their strengths or hide their weaker wires.

Beyond the settled habit and routine
both outlets -- other self and fated one -
determine to create the crowning scene
to demonstrate controlled or freeing fun.

Acknowledging that more than self sets course
enables life adjustments to each force.

- Robert Stone, 11 November 2012

Linda Waggener writes:
Remembering Jean McLean: she loved and worked hard for Columbia As Gary Lane recalled, I, too, will always remember that Jean McLean had a heart for service. She worked hard for the restoration of downtown Columbia. We shared a love of our heritage and a goal to see the buildings restored and used again. When I see the wonderful work done by her son Dan Antle - which sparked a renewed and ongoing interest in downtown - I alway think of his mother, Jean McLean, and all the many other contributions she has made to our community. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her. She brightened my day, each time I saw her. What a treasure she's been! What wonderful memories of her we cherish. - Linda Waggener

Veterans Day, 2012

Sent by Geniece Marcum

We honor our Veterans on this day - all men and women who have served and are now serving to help keep America free.
"On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, an armistice, or temporary cessation of hostilities, was declared between the Allied nations and Germany in the First World War, then known as 'the Great War.' Commemorated as Armistice Day beginning the following year, November 11th became a legal federal holiday in the United States in 1938. In the aftermath of World War II and the Korean War, Armistice Day became Veterans Day, a holiday dedicated to American veterans of all wars." source -- : history dot com site

Poetry by Billy Joe Fudge: Rubber Boots Upon the Floor

This photo so much reminded me of the scenes and personal experiences I've enjoyed over the years as a dairy farmer and casual observer that I once again wanted to share Rubber Boots with your CM followers. - BJF

Rubber Boots
By Billy Joe Fudge
The clock reads four AM,
Rubber boots set by the door.
Coffee, the only prelude to
Silent feet upon the floor.

Outside, silos, concrete monuments
Stretch toward reddened sky.
Security lights begin to dim
As cattle groan and blow nearby.

The day, now placid and calm
Will soon erupt into song.
A tune played over and over
On days that are hot or cold and long.

Then the serenity is ruptured
By vacuum pumps, bawling calves and coughing.
Each "old friend" communicates by
Standing still, swishing tail or stomping.

Summer days filled with seed,
Fertilizer, diesel fuel, sweat and dust.
Filled with paper work, silage,
Tractors, hay and sometimes disgust.

Wintertime is dark, long and cold.
Its drop cords, starting fluid and ice.
There's frozen pipes, swollen udders,
Mud and darting, big eyed field mice.

Yet, thank God, there's peace,
Purpose and eating out on Friday night.
Church, little league, friends
And baby calves-what a sight!

A wholesome life of rook parties,
Neighbors and cokes at country stores,
Seminars, deer and quail and
Short vacations on distant shores.

Now the clock reads 10 PM,
Rubber boots set by the door.
Only two things that can be heard-
An I love you, and a snore.

-Billy Joe Fudge-

Tom Chaney: Around the Track Once More

Of Writers and their Books, Around the Track Once More is a review of Dead Heat by Dick and Felix Francis. This review first appeared 11 November 2007
The next earlier Tom Chaney column: Tom Chaney: Our Land is Honored

By Tom Chaney

Around the Track Once More

Dick Francis is out of the gate astride his 40th racing novel. This time around he shares author billing with his son Felix who has heretofore declined to be so listed. But for Dead Heat the publishers insisted upon co-authorship since health problems shifted much of the work of writing the novel onto the shoulders of Felix. I wrote here about a year ago upon publication of Under Orders that Felix had taken over much of the research duties once performed by his mother, whose death in 2000 led to a six-year break in the string of Dick Francis novels.

I can report that father and son are working well in harness together.
