This Week's Stories:

Feature: Got Skunks?
There is something oddly adorable about skunks. They are compact, have
wonderfully unique markings and don't walk so much as waddle forward from
side to side....

Recipe: Lentil & Spring Lettuce Salad
Lentils are a staple in our pantry because they are easily cooked for soup and
make interesting seasonal salads when combined with fresh local produce. We
dress them simply with extra virgin olive oil and good vinegar or citrus juice,
depending upon other ingredients. I always include garlic, onion or shallots, but
then use whatever is in the garden.

From our Archives: Beach Glass: A Vanishing Resource
Good-sized chunks of sea green glass are a rarity these days, if my collection is
any indication. I have owned my best large pieces for many years. Still, if you
know where to look, you can find these treasures: pieces of broken bottles and
jars sanded to a fine frosty finish by the action of rocks, sand and water. Even the
rare sliver of red, or that hunk of cobalt the rich blue of a stained glass window
can often be recovered by the diligent searcher.
