Use an e-book to catch up on reading while you exercise

For Christmas my wife bought me a Kindle. If you're not familiar with this cool gadget, it's basically a lightweight, electronic reading device. It can download books and even magazines and newspapers. The reason I'm sharing this is because of one of the really neat things you can do with it - exercise! Just set the font to the largest size and use it on either a stationary bike or treadmill. The one-touch page turning feature makes it easy to use. Caution: If you sweat a lot, consider covering the device in clear plastic wrap.

Rich: A perfect blend of Southern grits and Vegas glitz

Thompson: Athletic shirt great for sleeping, too

If you're not familiar with the Tech Tee T-shirt, you should be. (These T-shirts also go by the name "Dry Fit"). Instead of cotton, they're made with a polyester blend. The beauty of these shirts is that they have the ability to wick away sweat from your body to the outside of the shirt where it will evaporate. Athletes like them because they'll keep you warm and dry in the winter and cool and dry in the summer. Why do I like them so much? Because they're great to sleep in. The slick polyester material will ...

Thompson: Test your knowledge of last year’s tips

I want to start off by thanking all of you who gave me tips in 2009. Without your help, this column would not be possible. Trust me, after doing this column for five years, it's hard to come up with new tips.

Skaggs: Freezing temps can be tough on plants

Earlier this week, people across Georgia were greeted with bitter cold temperatures in the teens as they headed back to work and school after the New Year's holiday.

Murray: Local wines’ value comes from supply and demand

Howdy, and Happy New Year! It's quite likely that by the time you read this, my bride and I will be tanning our elderly bodies in the sunshine of the Florida Keys. About this time of year, we genuinely miss South Florida, where we lived for 15 years. This year, we ain't missin' it, we're enjoyin' it.

Rich: A good writer can make up for some bad food

When our friendship was new and still most interesting, Poet sought to impress me. But when the new wore off, Poet cast me into the ring with his other friends who are familiar and comfortable, so there is no longer a need to impress.
