4 Floragraphy: saying it with flowers; each has meaning Valentine's Day is a big day in the hearts of all lovers, but especially flower lovers. The practice of giving flowers to express one's affection goes back far into antiquity. The convention was very popular during the Middle Ages when the constraints of courtly love made dating a long, arduous process. Being primarily a public function, courting rituals checked lovers' opportunities to be alone together. Consequently, sweethearts took to floragraphy or floral Stop-and-go physical activities are dangerous to health ' 'Couch potatoes breed during the winter months by getting bigger, softer and weaker,' ' said Dr. Robin Hunter of the American Chiropractic Association, ACA, as she criticized summer athletes who "hang it up" after their active summer season. This, she said, is extremely dangerous to their health. According to Dr. Hunter, who is an officer of the ACA Council on Sports Injuries and Physical Fitness, there appears to ...

February 1992 Ag Searchers at three schools awarded by Farm Bureau By KATHY B. SPRINGSTON Farm Bureau News Editor Prizes have been presented to winning classes in the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation's Ag Search competition held for more than 10,000 fourth-graders during the State Fair of Virginia. Students completed six questions on a name tag each wore then turned in after seeing agricultural animals and exhibits. The material was studied in advance, and answers to the questions could be discovered at the fair. Tigs were drawn for grand-prize and first and second runners up. The contest is part of the Agriculture in the Classroom program, which Farm Bureau Women's Committees support. The grand-prize, a video cassette recorder donated by Circuit City of Richmond, was awarded to Mary Thurman's class at Boones Mill Elementary School in Franklin County.

6 Everett sees strength in church, family and numbers By KATHY B. SPRINGSTON Farm Bureau News Editor JOYNER—Thick fog made the secluded farming community in Southampton County seem even more remote on this morning. \fet, Marvin L. Everett Sr. stood out front of his office talking with a neighbor about the need to lift their heads from their quiet work and voice their concerns in the distant halls of the General Assembly and Congress. On board We realize more than ever that farmers have to work together and be unified in our efforts," said Everett. "I've become convinced of this, not only as a director for the Viiginia Farm Bureau Federation, but in serving on many other boards as well. Vtfe have to have one voice." Elected to Farm Bureau's District 13 seat on the state board in November 1990, Everett serves the county organizations of Southampton, Dinwiddie, Greensville, Prince George, Surry, Sussex and joint Farm Bureau for Charles City, James City and New Kent counties. Being in t...

February 1992 Goat meat: diversity for diners and Virginia farmers By KATHY B. SPRINGSTON Farm Bureau News Editor Once in a while, curried goat is served at Winnie's Caribbean Cuisine, a cheerful little cafe on the second floor of the Young Women's Christian Association building in downtown Richmond. If Winifred J. Ross could get goat meat on a regular basis she would make this dish often, right along with jerk conch and oxtail. "You can't find goat meat around here. You have to go to Washington, or New York, or Baltimore,'' said Mrs. Ross, who grew up on the island of St. Lucia, preparing curry goat for her 13 younger siblings by her grandmother's recipe. Occasionally, her husband brings 50 or 100 pounds south when he comes from Boston. To have goat meat flown to her, the order would have to be enormous. Then storage would be impossible, she noted. While goat meat is hard to find on a butcher's tray or menu in most parts of Virginia, interest is growing in producing it here. Goat m...

I hope that some of the new resolutions include starting on your \bung Farmer Program of Work early and taking a proactive role in the future of agriculture.

10 Goat meat promises diversity (Continued from Page 7) overcome is the image of the animal standing in a junkyard chewing on a tin can," he said. Reynolds stressed that goats really can't thrive on garbage; they eat paper or laundry from a clothesline only because they are curious and have a taste for fiber. Goats can be fenced with cattle or sheep and will make use of plants the other livestock won't eat, for instance honeysuckle, kudzoo and even poison ivy, producers observe. Plants in the rhododendron family, however, are toxic to goats. Goats arc an economical, ecological way to improve a grown-up area or pasture. Shelter for goats need not be elaborate, but goats in Virginia do need a place to get out of the dampness and wind, especially newborns and recently sheared fiber goats, noted Reynolds. In Texas, which is warmer and dryer, goats may stay in the open more. Care of most goats is not labor intensive, although dairy goats require milking twice a day. Angoras, of which man...

Spongston) Young Farmers told to balance family and farming By KATHY B. SPRINGSTON Farm Bureau News Editor CHARLOTTESVILLE—When Doyle Cunningham was a fieldman, he wanted to impress the Kentucky Farm Bureau state office by attending a lot of county meetings and driving a lot of miles. He could really rack up some praise if he attended two meetings on one night, he thought. The meetings of neighboring counties began at different times, so he could make adequate appearances at each. But his daughter broke her wrist, and the mishap put the workaholic behind schedule. Cunningham, hurried down the road, trying to at least make the later meeting. "Fifteen minutes down the road, I said to myself, 'What is wrong with you? Who will care a month or a year from now about those meetings?"' said Cunningham. He went back and...

7 President urges 100-percent health insurance break From time to time I receive phone calls from concerned members who are upset about the high cost of medical expenses today. Man}' times, these folks have a legitimate problem—one that confronts all citizens, not just farmers or the elderly. But farmers do have one glaring disadvantage not faced by members of most other professions: They have no company health insurance plan to rely upon. Most farmers are self-employed and must purchase their own health insurance. Many take advantage of Farm Bureau's Blue Cross & Blue Shield options, but farmers are paying coverages for themselves and their families out of their own pockets. Legislation now under review in Congress could help our producers of food and fiber. House Resolution 784 would increase the existing 25-percent tax deduction to a full 100-percent deduction on small business owners who purchase their own health insurance. While the measure won't lower insurance pre...

8 After an accident, replace child's car seat -■ J t j ' i llllfe v- - - fl Joan Truesdale tells Bruce Stone, VFBF's safety coordinator, how a Cosco restraint seat like this new one saved her son's life. By KATHY B. SPRINGSTC Farm Bureau News Editor Never use a child car seat that has been in a crash. That warning comes from Consumer Reports and For Kids' Sake magazines and the Virginia Farm Bureau's Child Saver Program. Since the start of the Child Saver Program in the fall of 1989 many Farm Bureau members have purchased the Cosco 5-point harness child car seat for children and grandchildren. Last August, Farm Bureau learned of a touching survival story when member Joan Truesdale of Nokesville wrote to say one of the two Cosco seats she received from members as baby shower gifts saved her son's life. The November Farm Bureau News told how she and Adam survived an accident. But the story doesn't end there. Readers ealled with eoncern that a seat involved in a crash should not be use...

10 Learn recession-buster shopping and cooking tips SHARING SECRETS with SHIRLEY special and those foods from which you can get a lot of mileage in one purchase, such as a roast of beef for sandwiches, stew, and soup, and ground beef for spaghetti, sloppy Joes, or lasagna. Make meat choices that will be stretchable and versatile. Plan meals around the basic four food groups looking at two servings of meat daily, two or more servings of milk daily, four servings of fruits and vegetables daily and four servings of breads and cereals daily. Working recently with some groups on nutrition, I had some suggestions for stretching the food dollar. For instance, what has happened to a good pot of beans, a big dish of cornbread, and coleslaw? What a nutritious meal this could make! The beans and cornbread give you complete protein for your dietary intake and the coleslaw with lots of vitamin C and crunch. In fact, did you know that a good dish of coleslaw will provide more vitamin C than a com...
