fter a lifetime of doing this and that, going here and there and just plain burning the candle at both ends, I feel like sitting down for a while. But I’m not at all disappointed as my status in life has been raised to the next level. I have recently been promoted to the position of “Chief Assistant Gardener” with an internship under the authority of “The Armchair Gardener”, who also happens to be my wife of 44 years. And I think we make a pretty good team. She has an almost encyclopedic knowledge of trees and shrubs, and especially flowers, while I’m real good at digging a hole. At least I thought I was until I was told there are different kinds of holes for different plants. (Sorry, I thought a hole was just that – a hole in the ground.) Anyway, my new position is not so much a passion for gardening as it is learning how to take time to enjoy simple things. A plant will not be rushed, so I’m having to learn patience. And along with patience has come a new contentment which is somewhat foreign to me. Most of my life has been an exercise in “Chasing the Wind”, going from one “adventure” to another, doing it as hard as I could. I raced sports cars for ten years and rode motorcycles, on and off, for over 50. I’ve captained a sailing vessel in the ocean as well as competing in sailboat races in large lakes. And I have enjoyed a lot of (too many, in fact) interesting automobiles and have restored a few classics. And with all that I had a family and was trying to build a business. You can understand why I want to sit down for a while. These things, however, (my family notwithstanding) have been “empty pursuits”. I’m feeling a little older now and without the inexhaustible energy I once had, and much of my disposable income has been “disposed of”. So I’m now just beginning to learn how to be content where I am and with what I have. Gardening is inexpensive, allows me fresh air and exercise, teaches me patience and certainly makes my yard look better. And it’s a hobby which the Armchair Gardener and I can enjoy together, perhaps for the first time in 44 years. There is nothing wrong with wanting more than we have – going to the next level, financially or intellectually, or pursuing our dreams and goals. But, perhaps contentment is being happy where we are until we get to where we want to be. In Philippians, Paul says, “I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and all circumstances, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.” And he goes on to say, “I can do all this through Him who gives me strength.” Perhaps Paul was a gardener.

Post Script: I certainly can’t call myself a gardener. I’m still just a weed puller and hole digger. But I was so proud of “my” first bloom last week, I took a picture of it. I’m also learning by experience. When I accidentally pull a plant apart thinking it’s a weed, I pull up the whole plant and throw it away, thereby destroying all evidence of the mistake! That’s cause I’m a smart gardener.

Gary Sikes With Mid-Summer coming up and the temps rising, so is the hype about who is going to be the team to beat the Crimson Tide of Alabama this year. We may have the sleeper in the SEC East in the Georgia Bulldogs. Things are quietly going about business in the Athens camp as head coach Mark Richt is getting his group together for the Summer practice sessions and the Fall Campaign. The Bulldogs just may have the most potent offense they have had in the past several years. With 2 of the best backs in Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall the young offense will have time to develop and get up to speed. These 2 young men will, in my opinion, both be in the running for the Heisman trophy before they finish at UGA. With the backfield set, coach Richt does not have to worry about his quarterback position as Aaron Murray made his decision to stay at Georgia vs declaring for the NFL draft early. These are some of the factors which lead me to think that the Dawgs are going to be hard to keep out of the end zone this year. On the flip side of the line I am not so sure. When a defense loses players like Ogletree, Jones, and the huge nose tackle Jennings they

tend to take more time circling the wagons than the offense does. However we will know soon enough as the Georgia Dogs travel to Death Valley Jr. to be hosted by the Tigers of Clemson. The Tigers did not lose the talent and speed they are known for and they will have a healthy receiver in Watkins back. (Arguably the best wide-out in college football.) Plus the strong running and passing quarterback Tajh Boyd will be on the field for the Tigers as well. The environment the Dogs are riding into will be hostile and un-friendly so we can look for them to be tested early in the season, the first game in fact. August 31st is when the Bulldogs will make the trek from Athens to Clemson. And to throw mud in the eyes, then they will have to face the old ball coach Steve Spurrier and the South Carolina Gamecocks. If this Georgia teams gets through the first 4 games without a loss, then we just may have the team which can take the SEC title away from the Tide of Alabama. Right now, I don’t see any team in the West that can knock them off. But who knows, that is why they line up and play the game, time will tell.

very November a mouse finds its way into my house. I think it might be the same mouse coming back to torture me year after year. The routine is so familiar; it starts out as a phantom shadow I catch in my peripheral vision. My husband insists that it’s my imagination, but I know better. I hear it scurrying about behind closed cabinets and I’m sure it’s a matter of time before he reveals himself.

I rushed the two rolls of film to Eckerd Drugs and waited for the one-hour processing, certain that I had numerous angles of my prey. Nevermind that the girl at the photo lab will think my house is infested with rodents. In fact, if she has a good memory she will recall the pictures she recently developed of my toddler sitting on the livingroom floor surrounded by Cheerios. I now refer to those photos as Exhibit A when I explain the mouse problem to my children.

This year it didn’t take long. I was sitting in my Archie Bunker chair watching TV when all of a sudden it ran alongside the fireplace. Now there are a lot of stereotypes that I don’t believe in, but I am proof that there is truth to the ‘screaming housewife who just spied a mouse’ stereotype. I didn’t jump up on a chair or chase it around the house with a broom, but I did scream so loud that even My three-year-old, much like my husband, the mouse paused to look at me like I was does not grasp the severity of the situation. crazy.

Pork roast is a favorite dish at dinner tables across the country. Just because pork roast is beloved doesn’t mean home chefs can’t experiment with different preparations. For those who want to give their pork roast a more smoky flavor, consider the following recipe for “Pork Loin Roast With Hot Pepper Jelly Glaze” from Karen Putman and Judith Fertig’s “Championship BBQ Secrets for Real Smoked Food” (Robert Rose).

Tasty Tuscan Burgers 11/2 pounds ground pork or turkey (a white meat works best with the other flavors)

Experimenting with flavors can help you to create an entirely new burger that is a far cry from the cheese- and bacon-topped standard. For example, using flavors inspired from the Tuscan hillside can breathe new life into burgers. Consider this recipe for “Tasty Tuscan Burgers” and modify as necessary to whet your appetite.

Though burgers are simple to create and even easier to love, over time the same old burger recipe might need to be spiced up a little. Burgers can be modified with the addition of different toppings, but for home cooks who want a burger that is different from the inside out, they may want to go back to the culinary drawing board.

Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, melt hot pepper jelly over medium-low heat. Keep warm by the smoker.

Place pork directly on the smoker rack, add wood to the coals and close the lid. Smoke at 225 F to 250 F, spraying with apple juice every 30 minutes, for 2 hours. Brush with hot pepper jelly, close the lid and smoke, spraying with apple juice every 30 minutes, for 1 to 11/2 hours, or until a meat thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the pork registers 160 F for medium, or until desired doneness. Let rest for 15 minutes before slicing.

Brown Sugar Rib Rub Makes about 31/2 cups 2 cups packed dark brown sugar or granulated maple sugar 1/2 cup fine kosher or sea salt 1/4 cup sweet Hungarian paprika 1/4 cup chili powder 1/4 cup ground lemon pepper 1/4 cup granulated garlic 1 teaspoon dried basil 1 teaspoon dried thyme 1 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper In a medium bowl, combine brown sugar, salt, paprika, chili powder, lemon pepper, garlic, black pepper, basil, and thyme.

1/3 cup Italian-seasoned breadcrumbs 1 cup thinly chopped or grated zucchin 1 to 2 plum tomatoes, chopped 8 freshly chopped basil leaves or a teaspoon of prepared pesto 4 slices fresh mozzarella 4 slices red onion 4 leaves romaine lettuce 4 medium ciabatta rolls, split and lightly toasted Salt and pepper Garlic aioli garnish (recipe follows) Mix together the ground meat, zucchini, breadcrumbs, grated cheese, tomatoes, and basil leaves together in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Divide mixture into four equal portions and form into patty shapes, roughly 1 inch thick. Cook burgers via desired method (broiler, grill, stove top) until the bottoms are browned, about 6 minutes. Carefully turn over to cook the other side, another 4 to 5 minutes. Use an insteadread thermometer to determine doneness if you are unsure, depending upon whether you used turkey or pork. Turn off heat and top each burger with a slice of mozzarella. Allow to just melt slightly. Spread garlic aioli over ciabatta rolls and place a slice of red onion and lettuce on each bottom. Top with the burgers and finish off with the roll top. Enjoy with rosemary-seasoned potato wedges as a nice complement.

Basic Garlic Aioli 3 cloves chopped garlic 1 cup mayonnaise 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice 1 tablespoon chopped fresh Italian parsley Salt and pepper to taste Use an immersion blender to combine all the ingredients in a small bowl. Wrap and refrigerate for around 30 minutes to enable to flavors to develop. Serve with burgers or other sandwiches.

Fireworks

POSTPONED TIL SATURDAY JULY 13

at Newnan High School’s Drake Stadium Presented by Newnan Rotary Club The Newnan Rotary Club’s Independence Day fireworks show at Newnan High School has been postponed due to a forecast of heavy rains on July 4. The fireworks show has been rescheduled for Saturday, July 13. The City of Newnan’s annual Independence Day parade begins at 6 p.m. in downtown Newnan and will end at Newnan High School with a spectacular fireworks show. Drake Stadium gates will open at 5:30. Admission is free. A patriotic program as well as live music, family entertainment and concessions will begin at 6:00. Fireworks will begin promptly at dark.

INDEPENDENCE DAY PARADE

This year’s fireworks extravaganza will be the 28th annual Fourth of July celebration and is sponsored by Newnan Rotary Club, the City of Newnan, Coweta County, Coweta County Schools and Newnan/Coweta businesses as a gift to the whole community. “As always, the event is geared toward families and toward providing an event for the whole community to celebrate our independence. We expect to draw a crowd of thousands from around the community as we have over the past 28 years. We hope everyone will attend. It will be spectacular” said Newnan Rotary President Gerald Kemp. Organizers of the fireworks show were forced to reschedule the event because severe weather forecast for July 3 posed complications for the show’s set-up, and posed safety issues on July 4.

Swimsuit Shopping Savvy Swimsuit season is heralded for the return of warmer weather, but often feared for the arrival of revealing clothing. Swimsuits are typically the most revealing wardrobe items of all. Shopping for a new swimsuit may evoke feelings of fear and anxiety, but women should not be so afraid when swimming season arrives. Instead, employ the following tips to suit up in a style that fits your body and personality. • Pear-shaped women or those with shorter legs may benefit from a style of swimsuit that brings the eyes up to the chest to draw attention away from the lower half of the body. Look for leg openings that are moderately high cut to elongate the legs and do not hit at the thickest part of the thigh. • Women who want to amplify the appearance of a small bust are best to avoid bandeau-style tops or skimpy bikinis. Instead, look for tops that have ruffles or other embellishments that add more substance to the bust area. Underwire tops can also push up and offer more support. • To minimize a thicker middle, avoid shiny fabrics and tankinis. Wear a solid-colored suit that has high-cut legs or a lowcut top to draw attention away from the belly area. • Women with bigger busts can still wear a two-piece swimsuit if they choose that swimsuit wisely. Opt for bathing suits that have a hidden bra inside or underwire. Avoid triangle bikini tops. Also, skip high-cut tops, which can make a chest look even bigger but squashed. • Those who are plus-sized may have qualms about stepping out in a bathing suit. However, there are many flattering styles available. Look for a wrap style that instantly slims the middle. Keep swimsuits simple so that pattern doesn’t overwhelm the body. You can wear two-piece swimsuits, but avoid string bikinis that may dig into curves and cause bulging. • Don’t be afraid to a buy a swimsuit one size up. Thanks to the elastic and form-fitting nature of swimsuits, you may need to go for a bigger size for comfort and also to flatter your shape. Pay attention to how the bathing suit looks on your body rather than the size of the swimsuit. Once you find a swimsuit you like, take note of the manufacturer and style and remember to follow these guidelines the next time warm weather returns.

a long way in having your house sell quickly.

Counter top and appliances can date a house as well. Updating to granite countertops and stainless or black appliances will bring you one of the best returns on your investment.

What Generation is Your House Attracting? Gen X, Gen Y or Baby Boomers? It’s difficult to believe but, Baby Boomers need to move over for Gen X and Gen Y. These are our children and grandchildren and they are buying homes for their families. According to statistics, Gen X ages range from 25 to 48 years old, with Gen Y starting anywhere from 9 to 33 years old. If it’s time to sell your house what generations are you going to attract and is your house ready for them?

So, think about your house… If all of the bedrooms are upstairs, then your house will probably attract Gen X & Y. If there is a master bedroom on the main level, then more Gen Y’s will be attracted to that floor plan. Is there a “terrace level” (in the south, we call it a basement) with bedrooms and baths for guest or possibly an in-law suite or young adult living space? This could attract Gen Y or the last of the Baby Boomers. Give your house a deep assessment and find out what these generations want in a house to purchase. Having a house in “good shape” doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s capable of attracting that buyer. Knowing what these generations are looking to purchase will be a huge benefit to you when preparing your house to sell. So what do they expect and what turns them off? What can you do to improve the appeal to the younger generation?

1

Carpet or too much of it in a color other than a neutral and carpet in bathrooms … yuck! I’ve seen it … it’s out there, folks! Young buyers are looking for hardwood floors or tiles. If you have stains in your carpet, you need to take care of that, because young buyers will move onto the next place that doesn’t need carpet replacing.

2

Furniture & Accessories. It’s very possible your furnishings and accessories are dated. Coordinating patterns with floral, plaids and stripes in colors that are 10 years old or over are going to scream “old people live here”. I know it sounds cruel, but it’s the truth and you need to know this to help you sell your house. Young buyers cannot imagine moving into a house that looks like Grandma. Simply removing some of the furnishings and collectables and adding some updated fabric pillows and throws, in trending colors and patterns will go a long way in making their heart beat a little bit faster when they visit the house. Look at a Pottery Barn or Ballard’s Catalog for ideas of how to update.

3

Ornate Window Dressings. Young buyers are not impressed with elaborate draperies. Draperies are usually very taste specific and designed around your taste and lifestyle. Remember, you need to attract that young buyer by eliminating the heavy swags and valances and use solid panels in a cotton, linen or a shear fabric. They don’t have to be expensive; they just need to update your space.

4

Wallpaper and color scheme. Talk about taste specific and no one wants to remove wall paper! Automatically assume that young buyers want to move in and not have a “honey-do” list. Invest in calm neutral colors and covering or removing wall paper and it will go

Miscellaneous … Light fixtures and door hardware. Are they shiny brass? What about the ceilings, are they smooth or popcorn or stippled? And last but not least your artwork. This is one of the most personal items that need to be prepacked. Nothing screams “this is still my house and you need to love it the way that I have it” like family portraits or personal art. If you find that your house is going to attract a generation younger than your own, having a home staging consultation for information on how to update your house will bring you the biggest return on your investment to sell.

CAR CARE ESSENTIALS Check Your Car’s Power Steering Fluid … Another sub-system that makes your vehicle a pleasure to drive is the power steering system and it, too, like most of the others we have discussed is based on a special purpose, high pressure fluid. Like the others, it is also pretty easy to understand and check. So, let’s go.

“I would like to thank each and every customer who has shown their confidence in Pioneer Ford over the past five years and have become part of the Pioneer Family. Our goal has always been, and will always be, to give the ultimate experience in customer service. Whether you visit our sales department or our parts and service center, you will always be welcomed by our courteous and professional staff.” “If you are already a member of our extended family, Thank You! For those who are not, stop by for a visit, we will proudly give you a personal tour of our facility. While you’re here, take a complimentary test drive and see Ford quality first hand. You will discover why Ford is now the #1 selling brand in America, and the pride you will feel when you drive a true American Icon. God Bless You, God Bless Pioneer, and God Bless America!”

Bob Winiarczyk, President and Dealer Principal,

PIONEER FORD

How many of you remember cars without power steering, or when it was an extra cost luxury option? That was many years ago and there probably isn’t a car available today that does not have it as a standard feature, even the lightest smallest and most inexpensive sub-compact. The system is basically a pump that is powered from the car’s fan belt that builds pressure in a closed system to add mechanical advantage to the steering effort. Since most cars now-a-days are front wheel drive, there is considerably more weight on the front (steering) wheels making them harder to turn. Thus power steering assistance is really a necessity. The latest technology, so far found on mostly the very expensive models is electric power steering, which does not sap the engine for power to run the pump. But it does make the condition of the battery that much more critical. Aren’t you glad you understand how to check your battery? The most frequent problem with power steering is a leak in a line or connection, since everything is under considerable pressure. Occasionally the pump itself will fail. If the system loses fluid over a short period of time, you will be able to tell because the car gets increasingly more difficult to steer. A catastrophic failure usually results in a big pool of ruby red fluid under the front of the car, thick red goop all over the place, and even a red film on the windshield, and, oh yeah, absolutely no steering assistance. Many times a failure will be forewarned by a screeching noise from the pump. All you need to learn to do is to inspect the system during your periodic maintenance sessions. Use your Owner’s Manual to locate the power steering fluid reservoir and the power steering pump. Trace them around the engine compartment and you will have found all the components that could leak. A small leak from a cracked hard line or a brittle rubber hose will spray a fine mist when the engine is running and most likely not leak when it is turned off. The mist will land on some part of the engine compartment and attract dust, dirt, and grit.

This is the sign of a small leak. Many times it will still be red if it is recent. The reservoir that holds the power steering fluid is usually clear or translucent plastic, marked with a yellow cap identifying it. There are also lines molded into the plastic that show the maximum and minimum levels for the fluid. All you need is a rag to wipe that red grit off the reservoir so you can read the level between the min and max lines or open the unpressurized system and look at the level of the fluid. Rather than buy the specific type that your Owner’s Manual recommends from the many that line the shelves of the parts stores, it is usually just easier to take your car to your mechanic and tell him to fill, fix, or replace the faulty part(s) of the system. One reason you want to be on top of the situation is that if you are driving along and have a catastrophic power steering system failure, you have steering that is now more difficult to use than even a non-power system would be. Try turning the steering wheel with the engine off and you’ll get a good idea. If you lose some or all of your power assist, you might not be able to turn the wheel and steer the car to a safe location. You certainly won’t be able to drive it any distance or with any precision. A chatter coming from the vicinity of the pump or a squeal from the same area are sure signs of an already failed or an about to fail power steering pump. So, a little knowledge and attention, mixed with a pretty strong incentive to avoid a catastrophic situation, should give you enough motivation to keep your system properly filled and working as designed.

The tall white plastic canister with the black cap and two black hoses is the power steering fluid reservoir. Note the molded lines indicating the minimum and maximum levels
