Simple Wisdom for Complex Times

I have to say that I am excited about this new page on Burton Beyond.  The Orange Street General Store is named for the Orange Street in Merkel, Texas on which both my maternal grandmother--Mimmy--and my great uncle and aunt--Unc and Auntie--lived.  I spent much of my childhood playing in their backyards and absorbing their lessons and advice.  On this page, you will find a mix of family traditions and wisdom, advice direct from Mimmy, Unc, and Auntie, and a host of resources on health, self-sufficiency, and faith.  Stay tuned in the months to come.  There's more on te way.
