Walk Kansas starts soon

With snow predicted and wind chills in the single digits as I write this column it sounds a bit crazy to talk about going for a walk, but that is just what I'm going to do. Walk Kansas is a signature program for K-State Research and Extension that has been around since 2000. Each year this fitness challenge motivates people from all walks of life to get moving. The dates for the 2018 campaign are March 18th through May 12th.

Jimmy knows fishing down there and thinks we will have the opportunity to catch a sail fish on a fly rod. That is a wild dream that very few of us flat landers can even imagine.

A goal to de-clutter

I have been on a cleaning binge. It's not a dust and scrub binge. It's a "get rid of clutter" attempt. This is the time of year to do it, when we are trapped inside.
