Recent studies show that more and more seniors are choosing to remain at their jobs well into their 80s if health permits. These individuals have a great deal to offer to younger folk and most of them agree that working and thinking keeps them young. We have a number of such people here on the Island so I thought I’d take some time to speak with them here.

April is a difficult month for locavores. At a time when green shoots are coming up everywhere, and fruit trees are blooming, there is nothing green to eat, nor fruit to pick. The only edible things coming out of the earth in this season must be dug up, and that’s why horseradish is my subject. Planted in the spring, it grows all summer, fall and winter until a year later, it’s a root that looks like a shillelagh and acts like smelling salts.
Think of horseradish as Long Island mustard. (more…)
