  • Before Nintendo and Wii, farm kids played with pedal tractors.

    Before electricity, farmers lit their homes, their way to the barn or their trek into town at night with kerosene (which they called "coal oil") lamps. And before kerosene, they used whale oil or candles.

    Shelbyville couple Marvin Crouch and Deanie Logan, who both grew up on farms, collect a little bit of that farm nostalgia. Crouch has a collection of pedal tractors; Logan collects lanterns - kerosene, whale oil and candle. The lantern collection is a hobby that takes them back to their days on the farm.

  • "I'm so happy, I just can't tell you!" Viki Pidgeon exclaimed, pausing as she diced carrots and potatoes in her kitchen.

    "As soon as I found out, I told my husband, 'Barney, I'm getting an IPPY!' and he said, 'What's that?'"

    An "IPPY" is an Independent Publisher Book Award. The international book contest, which is in its 24th year, recognizes authors who are self-publishing. Entries average about 3,000 each year.
