Notes from the Heart...

In last week's newsletter  I posted a print by
Stephen Huneck. Little did I know that within
a week, this Vermont artist who was famous
for his whimsical prints of dogs would be dead.  
Read story:  
Dog Loving Folk Artist, Author,
Stephen Huneck.   What is so sad is that this talented
artist took his own life because, in part, of the economic troubles he was
experiencing.  How tragic and sad. He -- and his art (which always made me
smile) -- will be missed.  ~ Marcia

This Week's Stories:

Feature: Danger! Thin Ice!
Going out on the ice? Go safely! If you are headed out to go skating, ice fishing, or
ice boating, check first to be sure the ice is safe. Here are tips on how to know
when the ice is safe...

Garden: Perennials, 2010
How do you decide what perennials to choose from among the thousands
available?  A good place to start might be those voted the top for this year of the
Perennial Plant Association, the industry group representing growers and
professional garden designers, from which the perennial of the year will be
selected...

Recipe: French Onion Soup
Although total preparation time is two hour or so, only the initial browning
requires close attention...
