When I heard there was going to be an auction of "Gone With The Wind" memorabilia, there was no doubt that I was going. Too, I knew just the person to join me in the caper.
OK, here's your weekly duct tape tip. If you're going to be working with fiberglass insulation, you need to wear gloves and a long-sleeve shirt. In addition to that, wrap duct tape around your shirt sleeves and connect them to your gloves. By doing this, you'll keep glass fibers from getting on your wrists and irritating them. Trust me on this one.
As you well know, we've had some real weather excitement over the last week or so. Stormy weather always brings about a trying time in the Myers household. The reason is because Cole doesn't like thunder. In fact, it terrifies him.

Here's an interesting tip that you've probably never heard before. You can cook regular popcorn in the microwave without having to buy the more expensive microwave popcorn. Simply put a small amount of popcorn in a paper lunch sack, fold the top down twice and then put two staples in the top to hold it in place. (No, the two staples will not cause the microwave to explode. The mass of the two staples is so small that they're not affected by the microwave at all.) It works like a charm!
Working for free may not appeal to most people, but for those who truly love gardening, a little digging in the dirt without pay is not a problem.

Being a child of the '70s, television has a powerful influence on me. It can even test the core of my Southern woman being, as it did recently.
If you do a lot of cooking in the kitchen, you need this: A pair of welder's gloves. I'm serious. Don't waste your time with the low-quality pot holders and oven mitts. Welder's gloves are designed for extreme heat and are seriously durable. You can find them at any of the home improvement stores and they're cheap.

Plant species brought into an area where they did not ecologically develop or where they are not considered native, are often termed exotic.
After a clammy early spring, the sun is back finally. It's going to rise toward its highest point in the sky by June 21, the longest day of the year. Measured as an angle from the ground, in Gainesville the sun will be about 78 degrees up. It can't ever be exactly vertical above us because the subsolar point, where the sun is perpendicular above the ground, doesn't move this far north.
Just the other day, I was looking at a dogwood tree at the house and saw it was in pretty good shape.
Yay for Spring! It's officially the beginning of the arrival of fresh, local fruits and vegetables.
For the past few days, Chloe's been rude. She's been moody. She's been downright angry.

Last year, one of my son's favorite Georgia Bulldogs tore his anterior cruciate ligament.
Most Georgia residents have been bit by a tick at one time or another.
I remember as a boy playing with all of the other neighborhood kids during the summer.
I have always worked. In my family, when you turned 16, you got a job.
They play it with towels, shirts, pants and blankets. They play it with just about anything they can get their hands on. I think that's why the dog has started hiding under the bed.
Happy Easter! As you read this, I am on my way to Chicago for opening day at Wrigley Field.
