I remember going to Walt Disney World not long after it opened. There was just the Magic Kingdom and that was it.
I don't understand the whole fascination with macaroni and cheese. I like it and I'll eat it, but there is a whole generation of kids who are practically addicted to the stuff. Two of our daughters, Ashton and Beth, love it. I know this from the tell-tale macaroni and cheese boxes in the trash can. If Ashton asks me to pick her up some lunch, it almost always includes this mixture of pasta and cheese. ...
When he graduated from East Hall High School, A.W. Stover was recommended by a friend for a job at what was then J. Wendell Lancaster Jewelry and Music on Washington Street.
"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of light, it was the season of darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct ...
I haven't been to a Halloween party in years, and this year is no exception. This year on Halloween, it is senior night at my daughter's school and we get to walk out on the field as she is saluted as a senior member of the band. I get to play my favorite role of being a daddy, for which I've had my good and bad moments. If this were a reality show, I don't ...
As a son of the South, I'm the first to admit we've had some governors who didn't make us look too good in the eyes of the rest of the nation and, for that matter, the world.
Someone decided a few years ago that October was the month we focus on cancer, primarily breast cancer.
Christmas was always one of those days we used the good china. We also ate in the dining room.
This is one of those columns to clear a few notes from my desk.
Last week, I made a friendly wager with a newspaper friend in Cairo over the outcome of the Cairo-Flowery Branch game. I lost.
I'm not as up to speed as I should be on voodoo. My first exposure to voodoo was watching "Gilligan's Island." A regular story line had some type of witch doctor creating little voodoo dolls of the Skipper or Gilligan and making them do all sorts of crazy things. I also remember back in 1980 when George H.W. Bush called Ronald Reagan's financial policy "voodoo economics." Later that year, Reagan asked Bush to be his ...
All I want for Christmas is a baton.
If there was ever a picture of a nice guy, it was Frank Harris. He was short, fairly thin and was one of those people who always looked neat. His black hair, with a sprinkling of gray, was always in place and his clothes always looked like they had just been ironed. While love is an invisible thing, you could tell by the way he interacted with his family that they loved one another. When ...
This is another one of those Tevye the Milkman weeks for me. Tevye was the central character in the classic musical "Fiddler on the Roof." He laments, as he does often in the play, about the passage of time and how his daughters are now grown up. In what seems like a moment, that little baby that arrived 18 years ago is not a little baby anymore. Somewhere around 4:30 p.m. on a Saturday afternoon, ...
Christmas cards date back to the mid-1800s, and like me, they are quickly becoming dinosaurs.
In the world of restaurants, there is something special about the original location of unique eating establishments.
College football coaches often find themselves being pitchmen for everything from soft drinks to pickup trucks.
The graduation season is upon us and with it comes songs we only hear at commencement exercises.
At just about every college you can think of, there is a tradition uniquely identified with the football team. Some of them are historic while others are almost hysterical.
It is easy to blame television for a lot of things. We have seen many things that were once taboo become acceptable because we saw them happen on TV.
The folks in Hollywood seem to run short on ideas from time to time. They seem to thrive on remakes of old movies. I saw a story last year that said movie studios were looking at 50 potential remakes.
