  • Lost in LaRue - August 17, 2016

    There was no way I could even think about taking a walk on July 28, it was a rainy morning that turned into a drizzling afternoon. In attempt to refocus my eyes on some natural surroundings I went for a drive.

    Road trips in the rain aren’t as dreary as they sound, you just have to have the right music, for me it was the Gallier Brothers album On the Wing. It’s a lovely instrumental tract that features one of my favorite instruments, the Dulcimer. With the right music I was ready for some amazing photos.

  • Head Lice, itchy topic for all

    Head lice infest 10-12 million people (most commonly children three to twelve years of age) each year in the United States.

  • Troubles will come

    Everyone has troubles.  The old expression says, “It rains on the just and the unjust.”  So the question is, “How do we handle troubles when they come to us?”  One young man is jilted by his girl friend and he tries to commit suicide; while another man faces the same problem, but writes a song about it and makes a million dollars.  Trouble came to both, but the difference was how they chose to handle the problem.

  • How to enable hidden Windows 10 administrator account

    This week, I want to help users understand the differences between the Administrator User account versus Administrative Rights, and why knowing the difference is important.

  • Highway fatalities on the rise

    By Terry Mills

    About a decade ago, Kentucky started to see a welcome trend as the number of highway fatalities began a steady decline.

    Totals that regularly exceeded 900 a year before 2007 dropped to 638 in 2013, a figure not seen in the commonwealth since the 1940s.

    Unfortunately, that was as low as it would go.  The number of fatalities on our roads last year was almost a fifth higher than the benchmark set just two years earlier, and through the first seven-plus months of this year. It’s eight percent ahead of where it was last August.
