Best Cookbook Ever.

Tuesday, 9 January 2018

Mickler compiled these rural recipes of great artery clogging goodness. Be sure to check with your doctor first before trying them, and no, there aren’t any possum or squirrel recipes. For those you need a copy of The Foxfire Appalachian Cookbook.

That’s Mail Pouch barn painter Harley Warrick (1924-2000).

Here’s an excellent tribute site to those who travelled the sticks to hand-paint the ubiquitous advertisements:

Mail Pouch Barnstormers.

That quote on top? It’s similar to what my own grampa told me:
“Find something you like to do, figure out how to get paid for it, and you’ll never work a day.”

During the Christmas season, travelers along a country road west of Hazard can see the over 2,000 ft. of Christmas lights along Bob and Jean’s driveway and yard. After Christmas, the big Husker “N” can be spotted as well.

An after hours view of downtown Hazard during the holiday season.

During Christmas season, Hazard’s nativity scene can be seen each year along its main street.

Dusk on Exeter Road
“Dusk on Exeter Road” photo by James Casebere

His colour photographs depict American landscapes, those vast spaces where land, forest and sea meet in places such as the Californian coast and North Carolina. Isolated architectural structures stand in the midst of these places where nature reigns apparently unchallenged. Sometimes private dwellings, sometimes public buildings, they are the stamp of human activity and the symbol of its fragility.
