Have you ever studied the array of beautiful fall squash at the grocery store and wondered which type of squash was which, how you would prepare them, and how they would taste? The varieties seem endless. If you shy away from these fall vegetables (or are they fruit), you are missing a delicious and nutritious addition to your diet. They are easy to prepare and very versatile because they can be prepared in so many ways, from soups, to side dishes, to breads, to desserts. Winter squash makes a beautiful centerpiece on the table this time of year but their real beauty is revealed in their delicious flavor. Winter squash are some of the most nutritious and surprisingly delicious vegetables that you can put on your table in the fall. Squash is fat free and chock full of vitamins and minerals such as iron, riboflavin and vitamins A and C. They are also a good source of fiber.

My good friend the Norwalk Public Library is asking for community support to renew a tax levy. This levy is vital for the library to continue operations at its present level and doesn't leave much room to expand any of its several services. Actually, I can't call the library "my good friend" only, since it is a friend of everyone in the community and I don't have a monopoly. Much of my history and genealogy research is done at the library and I can testify to the high volume of traffic which uses all of the several excellent facilities. I realize that many people flinch at the mention of taxes, so remember on Nov. 6 that this is only a renewal of an existing levy which expires soon.

I've not followed baseball for years. I think I burnt out on it when I was kid. I started collecting baseball cards when I was about 7 (in 1969) and for the next three or four years I basically ate, drank and slept baseball. Like a lot of other kids, my card collection numbered in the thousands. And not unlike Raymond, the Dustin Hoffman character in "Rain Man," I could name every single ballplayer. On long car trips my older brother and sister would hold up cards with the name obscured. Not only would I name the player, but I would also recite his various batting or pitching statistics. We would do this for hours.
