Brashear News for March 7, 2012

Another week has gone by with beautiful weather. The wind was strong but still nice to be outside. The rain is coming and is so needed.

I have found out a new way to plant onions. Glenn George told us that Elton Stewart told him that if you have some green onions going bad. You can replant them and get more onions from them. The onions will have more white on the stem than green. He dug some up for us and they were wonderful. Glenn and Carolyn also gave us a lot of turnips and turnip greens. Good stuff. Thank you.

We visited with Red George last week and found out that the Glenn brothers have birthdays in the month of March. Red's birthday is in March and he thinks Glenn's birthday is somewhere between the ninth and the 11th. He was so funny trying to remember how old they both were. He also told me a funny story about Brady Stewart. Red said that Brady Stewart once said that a March birthday means someone may be “windy.”

Gardening is going fast and furious. Tom says everything is up but the potatoes. We are trying some new things: broccoli, Swiss chard and carrots. We have never planted some of these so we are really stepping out there. Please tell me how to fix Swiss chard. Carrots are planted at our garden in the north garden in sand.

Brashear Bash: Anyone interested for some time this spring? Please get word to Carolyn Vaughan, Linda Almon or myself if you are interested.

I would like to tell you about a new experience that we are a part of. We are starting a praise and worship service on Saturday night. Several of us feel that there are some people who do not get to go to worship on Sunday because of work. So … a Saturday night service is being tried. The praise and worship service will be at Hope Community Center at 110 Glover St. on March 10. The service will be from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. It will be a time of food, fellowship, praise and worship. We want to invite everyone to come and join this new worship experience. The original plan is to meet twice a month. More exciting things are coming so be sure to check it out.

Prayers are going up for all of those who have been injured or lost homes in the tornadoes last week. Let us remember that there are others who are hurting more than we know. Pray for them. Remember the Dinner Bell is feeding every Wednesday at First United Methodist Church in Sulphur Springs for those who are hungry. Also, don't forget that Meal-A-Day is still serving food every day for our seniors who cannot cook for themselves. We are a city that cares for each other.

I would like to thank all of you for your encouragement. I really hate to not have a column, but I need news. So I am asking all of you here in Brashear and the surrounding area to call me at 903.612.8806, email me at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
