'I like the way they help people'

URBANA — It wasn't just driving on the other side of the road that Scotland native Paul Montador had to adjust to when he first began making his home in the U.S.

It was all the friendliness.

Back in the UK, he'd go into stores and encounter grumpiness, he recalled, and when he went into stores in Champaign-Urbana he found friendly faces and people telling him to have a nice day.

My Amish Life: Knocking many chores off the list

"And it came to pass, as Jesus sat at meat in the house, behold, many publicans and sinners came and sat down with him and his disciples. And when the pharisees saw it, they said unto his disciples, 'Why eateth your Master with publicans and sinners?' But when Jesus heard that, he said unto them, 'They that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick.

Meg Makes: Bountiful strawberries make great cake

My baking friends and I got together recently with a bounty of garden-picked strawberries.

The resulting strawberry cupcakes had the out-of-this-world flavor I tend to associate with in-season fruit.

Strawberry fields not forever

The strawberries are slim pickings at Strawberry Acres near Danville as the 29th harvest comes to a close.

Meg Makes: 2 healthy ways for runners to fuel up

One of my post-grad-school goals is to run a marathon. June brings the beginning of my training.

As a result, I have to start thinking carefully about what I eat to fuel up.

Homemade granola is an often-recommended running food because it's full of protein and natural carbohydrates, but the baker can control the amount of white sugar included.

My Amish Home: Outside chores done; inside up next

"Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! For the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth he has but a short time." Revelation 12:12

Has summer arrived? Not officially, but it is warm, yes! Open windows and doors warm. I love it! We've had four days of pure, unadulterated sunshine!

To Your Health: Updated food labels are coming — and it's about time

By Irisha Clark

First introduced in 1993, the Nutrition Facts label that can be found on most packaged foods was created to help consumers make informed choices when selecting food.
