Thursday, September 7, 1967
Mr. and Mrs. Edgar Moore and son, Jackie, spent Labor Day weekend in Nashville, Tennessee, with their son, James, who is a student at the Auto Diesel College there. He is on the honor roll. They also visited with Jerry Duncan and Kenneth McLaughlin, who are also students there.
Ollie Tacy, of Cass, brought us a quart of beautiful honey last week. The color looked just right – made from Basswood bloom. He said the Basswood bloom on the higher levels made a little lighter honey. We told him we had been reading a book on folk medicine and that it said two teaspoons of vinegar in a glass of water and four tablespoons of honey a day would keep you well or cure most anything. He said there was a community in Pennsylvania whose citizens all raised honey and they were the healthiest and lived the longest of any people in that area.
