  • Take a quick look around at the colors of early spring. They are ephemeral at best.

    Even if the cold weather and anticipated freeze of the last couple of days don't do the dirty week, spring blossoms do not have a long shelf life. The pink and purple saucer magnolia blossoms in Grove Hill Cemetery were already littering the ground late last week. The earliest of the daffodil blossoms are already gone. Some of the rest are getting raggedy.

  • With an ingredient list that includes cinnamon, oatmeal, cranberries and chocolate, Doug Burkett's handmade soap recipes might be mistaken for a dessert.

    But while the soap smells appetizing, the taste will still likely discourage youngsters from saying words they shouldn't.

    Burkett, who was taught how to make soap from scratch by his aunt Bannie when he was six, has nearly 50 years of experience in making soap.

    Some of his earliest memories are of being in his aunt's house watching his family make soap.
