Some of her trees bear as many as 20 varieties. She has labeled each limb identifying each specific variety.

Oriana Kruszewski, owner of Oriana’s Oriental Orchards near Winslow, shows one of the many pear trees in her orchard that, because of her grafting expertise, produce multiple varieties of pear. Some of her trees bear as many as 20 varieties. She has labeled each limb identifying each specific variety.
Oriana Kruszewski came to this country with her husband, Jack, from Hong Kong 43 years ago wanting to own a piece of land. She says it didn’t have to be a lot of land or even the best quality ground. They were not strangers to hard work and they wanted to produce good wholesome food. Eventually, they purchased 40 acres near Winslow and launched their dream — Oriana’s Oriental Orchard. “When I came here I missed certain things, like the Asian pear,” Kruszewski said.

Setting a good example for kids
Quoting from AOL, the story by Bernie Wilson about Hall of Famer, Tony Gwynn.
Acording to Wilson’s report, Gwynn had a 20-year career with the San Diego Padres baseball team. He died of cancer June 16 at the age of 54 after treatment for a “tumor inside his right cheek. They grafted a nerve from Gwynn’s back to help him eventually regain facial movement.” Gwynn “believed the cancer was from chewing tobacco.” Why am I writing about a baseball “Hall of Famer” in this column. Because, once I witnessed a livestock judge at a 4-H fair chewing a wad of tobacco and the can of tobacco he had been nipping from, was very visible in his hip pocket.

Dust to dust

Some people take their principles to their grave. And for some baby boomers, that means planning for their funerals, or their parents’ funerals, in an eco-friendly way. Shedden Farley’s mother, Linda Farley, was passionate about a lot of causes, including the environment. When she died of cancer in 2009 at the age of 80, the family knew they wanted a natural burial that would have a minimal ecological impact, said Farley, a general contractor in Fort Collins, Colo.

Exercise the fountain of youth?
Exercise may be the closest thing we have to a fountain of youth, one of the best ways to age happy and well. “The mantra now is, exercise is a drug” — able, like some medications are, to prevent and treat a host of age-related ailments, said Dr. Andrea Cheville, a Mayo Clinic expert on exercise in the elderly. Exercise aids weight control, healthy cholesterol, blood pressure, mood and sleep. It lowers the risk for cancer, brittle bones and Alzheimer’s disease.

Nancy takes credit for successful life
Sometimes I sit here in my corner of the world and watch as people win awards for things they have done in their profession. Sometimes I get a little self indulgent, or whatever you want to call it, about what I’ve done with my life. Then I write something like last week’s column where I talked about songs to jump rope to and you the readers respond in such a way that makes me laugh.
