Matheny provides steady hand (05/20/12)
ST. LOUIS -- The trick play, a delayed double steal, had blown up moments earlier and Mike Matheny now had to face the music.

Dusty look a form of camo for a fledgling cardinal (05/20/12)
A young songbird that has hatched and left its nest is called a fledgling. Here I show a fledgling northern cardinal that I photographed May 12. Fledgling northern cardinals look like they are dusty from playing in the dirt. This dusty look is a form of camouflage. This is Mother Nature's way of helping protect the beautiful cardinals while they are young and less aware of danger. A fledgling cardinal sitting on a limb is harder to see than its brightly colored parents...
Cookbook specializes in cupcakes, muffins (05/20/12)
I have a special friend, Shelby Stafford, who has officially nicknamed herself "Cupcake." On occasion I might call her "Honey" and she is quick to tell me her name is not Honey, it is Cupcake. Cupcake was recently given a book devoted entirely to cupcakes and muffins. "The Taste of Home Cupcakes! Muffins & More" book contains 130 recipes for scrumptious delights for you to try.

Leave the deer alone (05/20/12)
City leaders were wise to pass an ordinance against feeding deer. Limits of food and habitat control population growth. For now, it has been many days since we have seen any deer.
