HOLLENBECK: Kitchenoli - a dish that was born and died on the same day

March 26, 2012

Not too long ago, I wrote a column in which I noted that I didn't recall eating blueberries in my earlier years, yet they're something we particularly enjoy nowadays.
We ate every other kind of berry I can think of, just not blueberries. Call me weird, but in Eastern Arkansas, I just didn't see the blue ones.

CARLTON: Barack, Hillary and the U.N.: United to take away your guns

March 22, 2012

Actually, that’s just the tip of the iceberg. They want pretty much all of your freedoms.
If, however, we let them take away our Second Amendment rights, we will have no means with which to keep them from taking away everything else from us.
There is a famous quote attributed to Isoroku Yamamoto about Japan not attacking the United States mainland because there would be a “rifle behind every blade of grass.” Though the quote has had some doubt cast on its substantiation, think about it what it says.

HOLLENBECK: 'Please read that story to me again and don't leave anything out'

March 19, 2012

Lucas, age 3, can “read.”
I know this is so because he read “Go Dog Go” to me the other night.
Of course I was already aware that this precocious grandchild was gifted in many ways, so his “reading” came as no surprise.
Truth be told — and I will if I must — Lucas has memorized this story, which is one of his favorites.
He reminded me of his cousin, Molly, now a high school sophomore, who frequently “read” “Brown Bear” to us as a 3-year-old.
“Bwown behr, bwown behr, what do you see? I see a wed burd looking at me,” and so on to the end of the delightful story.
