Living Trusts

You have probably heard the term “living trust.” Perhaps you have some vague notion of what it means. But could you explain it to the person sitting next to you? A living trust is an estate planning tool. In essence, it is an alternative to a will. Like a will,...

Seasonal Support

As the weather gets colder, cold hands, feet and noses can become an issue. Cold is understandable, but painfully cold means a lack of circulation. In extreme cases extremities have a burning sensation and can turn dark or purple. The types of food you’re eating, how you’re assimilating those foods,...

Doubling down on our Monument

Who ever thought that a president of the United States would bother to attack us? Who are we anyway? Southern Oregon is way out on the margins of wealth and power, much like Puerto Rico. I have a strong suspicion that, if a stray hurricane destroys our infrastructure, we will...

The Power of Pricing

With the steady incline in home prices, we are starting to experience the ramifications of home sellers overpricing their homes and then waiting too long to make the proper adjustments. When our market started to rebound and properties in the Rogue Valley were selling at top dollar, it didn’t take...

The Cycle of Life…

Dr. Alex Shigo (Bless you, Alex) and I were having a conversation about the “Balance of Nature” as it were, over dinner a few years back. It turns out that there is no such thing! Think about a see-saw, you know, the thing you played on as a kid, until...

Peanut Brittle

There is something rather addicting about the salty sweetness of Peanut Brittle. One legend has it that in 1890, a Southern lady accidentally created Peanut Brittle. It is said that she was trying to make taffy but accidentally added baking soda to her pot instead of cream of tartar, which...

Living in Fear of the Dead … Tooth

Unlike everyone’s favorite film (or TV show) du jour, teeth that lose their vitality don’t come back. Teeth, more accurately the pulp inside the tooth, which carries nutrients and nerve fibers to communicate sensation, “die” for a number of reasons. This month, I’d like to look at some of those...

You don’t have to floss all of your teeth…..just the ones you want to keep. “The world’s most interesting man” Where it reads: I don’t often floss my teeth but when I do, I have a dental appointment in two days. Lying through your teeth doesn’t count as flossing. “Looks...

The Problem of the Root…

I can’t say it never happens in the wild, but encircling or “girdling” roots are rarely encountered. A tree left in a container for too long is almost sure to have potbound attitude. If you take a tree out of a container, especially a plastic pot, dig a hole and...
