also Camp Wilcat was lead by Confederate General Felix Zollicoffer who moved westard to the Mill Springs area on the southern side of the Cumberland River and died at the oak "Zollie" tree that I had posted about earlier.

Union leader George Thomas had sent a troop from Camp Dick Robinson (near the Ky. River) to block the Confederates. Thomas (though a Virginian) remained loyal to the Union and went on serve at the battle of Mill Springs and against Braxton Bragg at Perryville (west of Danville), and was most famous for Chicamauga south of Chattanooga and joined Sherman on his march to Atlanta.

Camp Dick Robinson was the first Federal recruiting and training camp south of the Mason-Dixon and is primarily what propelled Ky. into the Civil War. Many "orphaned" East Tennesseans enlisted there after their own state seceded. Several died there due to an outbreak of measles.

Colonel Harland Sanders was born a few miles from my family's home. According to local lore he, at one time, may have ran a bootleg operation. who knows. lol A couple years ago a tornado hit his hometown and cut quite a swathe through the area, hitting the school. By that August the school had been repaired and the kids were again in familiar surroundings. One highly visible scene from the tornado was a school bus that had been slammed into a local restaurant, creating a new "Bus Stop"

Also Colonel Sanders nephew, Lee Cummings started his own friedchicken restaurant known as "Lee's Famous Recipe". BTW. The Colonels hometown doesn't even have a KFC.

I'm hungry. Haven't had breakfast and here it is almost lunch time! As soon as the doc appointment is over I'm outta here and looking for food. Perhaps KFC? Lol

I agree, the Colonel's hometown does not have a KFC and the town has a fairly small population. He took a job running a service station in Corbin Kentucky on U.S. 25 and started selling chicken out the station which eventually became his restaurant. I prefer Lee's over KFC. I do not care for the extra crispy though, which seems to me to be dipped in corn flakes.

Has anyone been thinking of New Years Resolutions??
I've been considering taking a few spinning classes over the next 5-10 weeks. Gets me off the couch and a good start towards spring. Soo that's one good resolution for me.

Would the barley work in most soups ? I've never tried barley but if there are particular soups it would enhance I'd be willing to throw in a handful.

I saw on TV they have spinning classes in the water. It's the bike submerged in the pool. I thought "interesting "
Years ago I became aggregated with my inability to keep resolutions . I developed a new strategy. I make a resolution each month instead of several on Jan 1. It has been very effective. This month I'm going to ---

Doing something for a month seems more doable I guess.

Yes, it's extremely good in slow, crock pot lentils or beef stew and barley even veggie soup. Enjoy;) Great food for diabetics as far as research has discovered.

Doing something for a month works better for me also. That's one reason why I can go to one particular class 5 to 10 times. Something like joining the Y sets me up for failure-- a whole year?! As far as spinning, wow!, most all the group is so much more into it than I am. Intense. My reasoning is its to get me off the couch at a time of year I'm a total couch potato. Then, for the most part, I'm the Goldie oldie of the group lol .
Really, if I make resolutions at all its more of a bucket list. You know, like a special trip. Getting up the rest of the curtains. Things like "shopping less"? Well, that's a baby steps type of resolution . Lol

Okay, I can handle just pitching in some barley. That's an easy way to get a few more health benefits with next to no more effort.

Wondering how ole Helter Pete is coming along? Once he discovers hula girls he may never pass this way again. Lol

Birds... I had 1000s of them pecking around on the homestead lawn yesterday. In my numerous years, I have never seen anything like that. I have seen them fly over and alight in the trees around dusk, but these spent all day on the ground and if a few 100 had died it would not have even been a drop in the bucket. Strange indeed. and I had no John Barley Corn either. LOL

Hey Anne, I'm proud for you. Since you asked, I've had this (#*&!!) bike on the back deck for several years and still despise it,....ya peddle and peddle and go nowhere. But, it appears I'd better get over it and go back to using it. Also, I've heard of a group in Ripley, MS that get together and play dulcimers at the library that welcome new people. I messed with one once but don't own one but that could be cured! Still, that's about 55 miles from me ....just don't know. But for the new year, that's two things that sound invite'n!

And a Happy New Year's wish to everybody. I hope that life is fair to you for another year.
