Today's Opinions

  • Talk to me baby!

    I remember conversations decades ago discussing both touch and voice recognition technology in our computers with the likes of Steve Jobs and Bill Gates. Both had their dreams and both felt that typing was too cumbersome and too slow.

    Touch (and by association Gestures) is well ingrained in our technology today, but voice is just now coming to the forefront. The biggest issue for most of us is the multitude of voice integrated devices we have.

  • Spring Cleaning, Caregiving

    We feel more energized by the longer days and warmer temperatures of spring. UK Eldercare reminds us now may be a good time to consider a spring cleaning with your loved one in their home.

    It may provide valuable insight into how your loved one is managing as they age. It also provides a chance to improve the safety of your loved one’s home; increase the ease of their living condition by reorganizing and replacing worn out items; and evaluate the quality of your loved one’s life and assess if additional help may be needed.

  • Trash for Cash offers eye opening experience

    Dear Editor,

    On April 25 and 29, the 2016-2017 Leadership LaRue class volunteered a few hours of our time to Trash for Cash, which is a government funded activity in which garbage is collected from county roadways and a donation is made to the organization of the volunteer’s choice in return. We worked to benefit the LaRue County Chamber of Commerce.

  • Superstitious Cleaning

    Stevie Wonder sings about being Superstitious. It’s a great song with an awesome beat and rhythm that keeps you working at a quick steady pace. The song, and cleaning make me think about Superstitions.

    I’m not superstitious, I’m really not; however I find myself doing these peculiar things that really superstitious people do.

    “They aren’t calling for rain this weekend… KNOCK ON WOOD” or when someone says the same exact thing I say at the same time I find myself, at least thinking, “JINX!”

  • Is someone tracking your browser?

    For those of you who actively use your browser thinking that you are secure because you use anonymous sites or anonymous browsing, where your history is erased when you exit, be ready for the new world.

    Last November 2016, it was disclosed that the FBI operated a child porn site using what is called an anonymous Tor (think dark web, untraceable – used to be) network called Playpen for almost two weeks in 2015.

  • Virtual machines become more vulnerable

    Back in September 2015, I wrote an article “Virtual Machines – The Trend of the Future.” This article holds as true today as it did then, but some things have changed.

  • Leading up to marriage

    I am now a married man.

    I married the love of my life, Danielle Sexton, on April 22. Despite the rain, the wedding was everything that we both dreamed of it being.

    We decided to do a common ritual that couples often do before they say “I do.” We didn’t see or talk to each other on our wedding day before the ceremony, but we wrote each other a letter. We had decided to write it in a way to where our children could read it years later and know what their parents were thinking before they said their vows.

  • Buttermilk Basics

    Buttermilk is a great way to add flavor and nutrition to many dishes. It has a longer storage time than fresh milk, and is therefore a great ingredient to have in your refrigerator.

    Buttermilk was originally the fluid left behind after churning butter from milk. Today, you can find reduced-fat varieties and locally produced buttermilk that is thick and rich in flavor. Buttermilk retains the nutrients from the milk used to produce it and is a good source of calcium and protein.
