I'd be less than disingenuous if I said I didn't dance a little jig when I heard the news that Michael Adams was stepping down as president of the University of Georgia.
It didn't take me long after moving here to learn that the Poultry Capital of the World takes its chicken seriously.
Before we get started this morning, I need to tell you that I've never stolen a shopping cart from a grocery store.
Glory, the black and white springer spaniel who lives at my house, turns 14 this week, which roughly translated means she's as old as Methuselah.
Hardly a day goes by that I don't see something in the newspaper or on the TV or on the wires that makes we want to scream.
It sounded too good to be true, but there it was on the "Today" show for all the world to see.
My life has been overtaken by passwords. I have so many passwords now for so many websites that I cannot keep them straight. I have to have a password for everything. My bank account. My credit card. The cable company. The cell phone company. Amazon.com. The UGA ticket office. I even need a password to sign into this newspaper's website. I understand the need to have different passwords. Elsewhere in today's paper is a story ...
With the big-time presidential candidates campaigning across the South the last two weeks, it became painfully obvious that each was trying to out Southern the other.
We've been asking readers this week to tell us whether they like daylight saving time or hate it. Before I share my thoughts on the subject, I offer a little public service announcement.

There are few foods that I won't eat. I had an aversion to green beans as a child, but I outgrew it. I've made no secret of my dislike for mushrooms. Mushrooms are fungus and I'm not going to eat fungus as long as there is perfectly good food available that has grown in the sunshine. I also dislike rutabagas, mostly because I don't want to eat anything that smells like rutabagas smell while they ...
I was remembering a commercial this week that used to air years ago in the middle of the night where a man came out and tried to sell you on the idea of pre-planning your own funeral.

Our corporate human resources staff came to town last week to show us a training video. It's part of regular, ongoing training, and this particular video dealt with the issue of workplace harassment.

The government has been getting its grubby little paws into your paycheck every two weeks for the last year, and now it's ready for you to give more.
I often get asked how Glory, the black and white springer spaniel who lives at my house, and I got together.
