Obituary: Catherine "Kitty" Mulroe - Montclair Local
Peter to rethink the move. After decamping England for a holiday in County Mayo, Kitty, Peter and family were once again crossing the Atlantic – this time on the S.S. United States. While her 6 children remembered it as one great adventure, filling them with stories for a lifetime, Kitty was burdened with starting life anew in Montclair with few resources, limited job prospects and a seventh child on the way. Drawing on her strong Catholic faith and her stoic nature, she raised (and more-than-occasionally herded) her seven — and eventually eight — children while husband Peter gutted and rebuilt the home they were living in, while simultaneously holding down a full time job. When later in life she had the opportunity for leisure she enjoyed traveling, whether back home to Ireland or with friends on organized trips. Memorable destinations were Nova Scotia, Germany, Rome, Medugorje, Lourdes and the Holy Land. Known as “Nana” to her many grandchildre, Kitty would often fix them milkshakes, deviled eggs or her famous “Nana bread.” Her back door was always open to her offsprings’ friends, who would come and go as if the house were their own.Fiercely proud of her Irish Catholic faith and heritage, she was a parishioner at Our Lady of the Lake Church in Verona and, prior to that, Immaculate Conception Church in Montclair. She was a member of the Rosary Altar Society and the Catholic Daughters of America.Kitty was predeceased by her husband Peter and her son Robert. She is survived by her children John (Bernadette), Peter (Susan), James (Anna), Michael (Catherine), Patricia Farley (Bob), Joseph (Lisa), Brian (Sheri); daughter-in-law Karen (Bill); grand- and great-grandchildren Michelle, Kyle, Jack, Brent, Ryan, Patrick, Victoria, Vincent, Megan, Conor, Brigid, Fiona, Danny, Katie, Catherine, Robert, Peter Michael, Peter Joseph, Michael, Pierce, Alex, Joseph, Elijah, Adrian and Nicole; sister Sheila; and brothers Jim, Tom and Dermot.Visitation will be this Sunday, Feb. 16, from 1 to 5 p.m., at the Hugh M.

Kirsten Gillibrand campaign spent $57,000 on flowers - New York Post
Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand dipped into her campaign funds for $57,000 worth of flowers, dozens of parking tickets and multiple transatlantic flights, a Post review of federal election filings over the past decade found.
Since 2009, the Albany Democrat’s campaign paid at least $4,250 to Washington, DC, — using the murky moniker “DC treasurer” in its Federal Election Commission filings. The payments ranged from $50 to $730 and went to PO Box 2014. That box is used by the DC Department of Motor Vehicles for “parking, photo enforcement, or minor moving violation[s],” a DMV spokesman confirmed to The Post.
“There is a prohibition on using campaign funds of a federal candidate committee for personal use purposes,” an FEC spokesman told The Post, saying the charges would only have been kosher if racked up in the service of some official responsibility.
At least 25 such tickets were recorded. But they were the tip of the disbursement-berg.
The 53-year-old junior senator dropped at least $57,300 on flowers — including $227 for flower deliveries in France. The lawmaker tends to favor upscale city shops, largely eschewing flo... Feb 27, 2020
How Azaleas Became the Signature Flowers of the South - HowStuffWorks
Most azalea varieties bloom in the spring, around May, in the mid-Atlantic area of the U.S., with some blooming a month or so earlier and some as late as August. Blooms typically last for one or two weeks, and in warm climates such as the Deep South, some azalea varieties bloom again in the fall.
Are They Easy to Grow?
By making careful choices, gardeners in almost every part of the South can enjoy some of these plants, even if that means growing them in containers. Rhododendrons generally do better in the Upper and Middle South, although a number of selections thrive in the Lower South. Azaleas, however, are more accommodating, and with the necessary attention to soil, light and proper selection can be grown throughout the South.
"They are easy to grow, because they are accustomed to the climate in the Southeast," says Collins. "They are shallow-rooted plants, so you need to be sure to not plant deeply. Also be sure not to heavily hoe or weed around them, as you'll destroy the roots and harm the plant."
Fanello agrees that they are extremely ea... Feb 1, 2020
Birds are the flowers of our winter garden - taosnews
But some still question whether it is important or helpful to feed birds.
An article published in September of last year in The Atlantic, titled "The Quiet Disappearance of Birds in North America," cites new research that "decades of data on North American birds estimate that the continent's bird populations have fallen by 29 percent since 1970."
The article goes on to quote Kenneth Rosenberg of Cornell University, noting that "the fact that 24 million eastern meadowlarks still survive hides the fact that 74 million have gone. 'There are still a lot of birds out there,' Rosenberg says. 'If you have a lot of birds coming to your feeder and they're reduced by 30 percent, you might not see that. This loss of abundance can be happening right under our noses.' "
Since insects are hibernating and are not readily available to birds, you can purchase suet to help the bird population during the cold winter months. Suet is a very versatile, high-energy food that can be used in many ways. You can just hang it in a suet feeder or use it to help make a paste that can be spread on the bark of a tree, otherwise known as "bark butter."
Melt down a cake of suet and add peanut butter, cornmeal and other ingredients such as birdseed, raisins and nuts. After it cools slightly, spread it on the side of a tree. Great recipes can be found online or you can just make up your own recipe. Another way to use suet is to melt it down and mix it with peanut butter. Then roll pine cones in the mixture and sprinkle it with seeds. Hang your pine cone feeder outside on a nearby tree.
Many of our birds also love black oil sunflower seeds for the protein and oil they provide. But, if you find the bigger birds are chasing off the finches, chickadees, titmice, juncos and sparrows, then you can put a thistle feeder in another location for the smaller birds. Having several feeding locations can be helpful, too. If you happen to have quails visit you, bird blocks will encourage them to feed in your yard - but don't be surprised if you attract a few rabbits or other outdoor critters.
When spring comes, remember gardening for birds compounds the benefits as you and the birds will benefit from the healthy fruit. Fruit trees and shrubs provide shelter for birds, as well as food. If you are concerned that the birds will get all the harvest, you can cover a portion of the plant with bird netting to reserve some for your own needs. Indeed, the birds are hungry and extremely effective at cleaning out fruit-bearing trees.
Crab apple trees are beautiful in the spring and birds love to fatten up on small crab apples in preparation for the winter cold. Currant bushes are a favorite for backyard birds and the blooms attract hummingbirds also. Elderberries are a great bird food and have marvelous health benefits for people, too. Serviceberry bushes grow well in Taos; their fruit can taste similar to blueberries that do not naturalize readily due to their need for acid-rich soils.
Berries are rich in antioxidants and healthy eating for both people and bird populations. Research has proven that antioxidant rich berries help maintain bird populations, especially for those birds that migrate.
We hope you enjoy your feathered fr... Feb 1, 2020

Kate was born in Hawkesbury, Ontario on December 30, 1913, of Norwegian parents.
