Great article on Colonel Sanders and the Colonel Sanders Museum with information on how he originally started the restaurant and what it’s like to tour the museum.

The View From Plum Lick

Featured Image -- 734

A great book about Kentucky and the author’s life.

With Love, From Kentucky

David Dick’s book of essays provides a glimpse into Kentucky life, as well as the author’s own life. Raised in Kentucky, Dick went on to become a CBS News correspondent who traveled the world. After retirement he decided to return to Kentucky and the land his family had owned for generations.

The view from David Dick’s Plum Lick is a lot like the view from my grandparents farm on Mud Lick; full of good people, hard work on the farm, a reverence for ancestors, love of the land and animals. The best essays in this book are the ones where Dick describes his own exploits on the farm. He writes about his pets, farm animals, and crop work with the temperament of a hardened farmer mixed with wonder. His reflections in the various situations he finds himself in are thoughtful and often comical.

Great photos and interesting post on Betty McCoy House in Pike County.

Brandon Ray Kirk

On December 7, 2016, I visited the Betty McCoy House at Stringtown, Pike County, Kentucky. According to tradition, Roseanna McCoy gave birth to her child by Johnse Hatfield here at Aunt Betty’s residence in 1881. The romance between Johnse and Roseanna represents one of the more familiar events of the Hatfield-McCoy Feud.

Kentucky Traffic School Gets You Out of New or Old Points On Your Driving Record. Here’s How.

Great information for Kentucky drivers with violations and how to go to traffic school.


Kentucky drivers don’t have to settle for a bad driving record. A driving record that is filled with traffic violations can see you kept out of certain occupations, paying higher insurance premiums, or even worse, having your drivers license suspended. Nobody wants or needs that. Kentucky traffic school can be your key to a clean record, cheap premiums, and keeping you straight on the road of life.

To Remove Points Already On Your Record
