Now that we are actually living in our Home, now that we are tasting the homely sweetness of living in a place we call our own, now that we fully appreciate the cozy contentment that comes of a night when we hear the bleak chilling blast of the winter wind-- now that we are here-- we are finding out what it means to have our own Home.

The Most For Your Fruit

Every fall a great amount of apples and plums are decaying on the ground in states where these fruits are raised, while people in other states are wishing that they had some of the fruits to eat.
