I do my Living Better features Monday-Friday with The Morning Team between 5 and 9am on 84 WHAS; specifically, we run at around 6:55, 7:55, and 8:55. You can also hear me Saturday mornings from 9-10am.
I also do a regular feature for KNN called Kentucky Hearth and Home that runs weekdays at 11:40am, just in case you are travelling around the state and hear a familiar voice.

Using citrus trees as houseplants is becoming more and more
common as southern growers look for markets to expand their business potential.
If you are lucky, you’ll find citrus trees at your plant store and with the
proper care, they will make great companions.
When you get your citrus trees home, you’ll probably find
the leaves covered with a white powdery film. This is most likely from the
pesticides that growers use to protect the plants from insects and disease.
They are commonly given one last spray before shipping. Use a 10% white vinegar
solution of just plain water to wipe off all the leaves to clean it up.
Keep the soil of your citrus plant evenly moist. Never allow
the soil in the pot to completely dry out, this can lead to leaf and fruit
drop. Water just as the soil surface dries out, but keep in mind the plant
needs extra moisture when it is flowering to improve fruit set and production.
In order to be able to harvest fruit, you might need to
pollinate the flowers. Insects till take care of this outside, but you might
need to take responsibility for an indoor plant. Use a small paintbrush to
transfer pollen from one flower to another.
Citrus trees need full sun so put them in a bright sunny
window, preferably a southern exposure. They also prefer acidic soils, so use a
fertilizer formulated especially for acid loving plants.
Citrus trees can be propagated at home through techniques
with varying degrees of difficulty. Some
citrus trees-notably Mandarin varieties—will come true from seed. So simply
plant the fresh seed, use some bottom heat and be patient. If you end up with
really thorny plants, discard them, culling through the “off” seedlings may
result in a good chance of reproducing the parental clone. A more complicated,
but preferred, method of propagation is T-budding a scion (a cutting from an
existing plant) onto a hardy rootstock.

Even if you never harvest a single fruit from your citrus
tree, they are nice plants so have around. The flowers are incredibly fragrant,
and the leaves are thick and succulent and a deep glossy evergreen.
Here's a recipe for a fabulous bloody mary mix that was in Parade Magazine a while back. It's called City Grocery Bloody Mary Mix:
Combine V8, vodka, Worcestershire, horseradish, shallots, garlic, pickle juice, Tabasco, celery seeds, pepper, salt, and lemon and lime zest and juice in a large pitcher and stir well to combine. Place pitcher in fridge and let chill. Fill 6 short glasses with ice. Skewer 1 okra pod, 2 onions, and 1 olive on 6 skewers and place one in each glass. Pour chilled mixture over ice. Sprinkle top of each drink with a little more pepper and top with 1 lime wedge.

Here's a great list from Jon Gordon: 11 ways to build trust...
1. Say what you are going to do and then do what
2. Communicate, communicate, communicate. Frequent,
honest communication builds trust. Poor communication is one of the key reasons
marriages and work relationships fall apart.
3. Trust is built one day, one interaction at a
time, and yet it can be lost in a moment because of one poor decision. Make the
4. Value long term relationships more than short
5. Sell without selling out. Focus more on your
core principles and customer loyalty than short term commissions and profits.
6. Trust generates commitment; commitment fosters
teamwork; and teamwork delivers results. When people trust their team members
they not only work harder, but they work harder for the good of the team.
7. Be honest! My mother always told me to tell the
truth. She would say, “If you lie to me then we can’t be a strong family. So
don’t ever lie to me even if the news isn’t good.”
8. Become a coach. Coach your customers. Coach your
team at work. Guide people, help them be better and you will earn their trust.
9. Show people you care about them. When people
know you care about their interests as much as your own they will trust you. If
they know you are out for yourself, their internal alarm sounds and they will
say to themselves “watch out for that person.”
10. Always do the right thing. We trust those who
live, walk and work with integrity.
11. When you don’t do the right thing, admit it. Be
transparent, authentic and willing to share your mistakes and faults. When you
are vulnerable and have nothing to hide you radiate trust.
