Leave Seal on VitaminsWhen you open your vitamin bottle, only cut half of the paper seal away. It's easier to get just one vitamin out at a time that way. It also prevents excessive handling of the other vitamins in the bottle, as well.

Picking butter beans off the vine.

Picking ButterbeansThis has been a hot, dry summer and the first year we have watered our garden. It has been a pretty one. My grandmother used to say, a dry June means a wet July. It seems that old saying is true because we have had a lot more rain this month.

Value of Murphy Chair?

Value of Murphy Chair?How much is this Murphy chair, #358 worth and can you tell me any more about it?


A wooden rocking chair.

Information About Murphy Rocking Chair?This is my grandmother's rocking chair which I have in my possession; and the stamp on the underside indicates it's a Murphy Chair Co. rocking chair. I would like to know when the chair might have been made - am thinking the emblem and number may be an indication. My grandmother was born in 1895. My mother was born in 1914 and her child's rocking chair was determined to be purchased between 1914 and 1919 (when the Co. moved to Kentucky). The stamp on the bottom of the child's chair was completely different. It seems like this chair may have been purchased earlier, and possibly by my great-grandmother/grandparents. Any information would be greatly appreciated.


A collection of pieces from a crate.

Identifying Farm Equipment?We found this in a crate in an old barn on a property we bought to build our home on which at one time was a working farm many years ago. Does anyone know what this may be if assembled. We believe it was shipped here and never assembled.
