Rich: Idea of ‘bad luck' lives on in NASCAR

I picked up the package left on the back porch and read the mailing label that said "RCR Racing, Welcome, N.C." I smiled and hurried inside to tear it open.

Skaggs: Christmas trees need tender care

Is it just me or is the Christmas season beginning earlier each year? Personally, I would like to at least finish trick-or-treating before I begin thinking about Christmas. But whether you've got your shopping wrapped up or haven't even started, it's time to decorate the Christmas tree.

Rich: Nothing is sexier than a man with a plan

Flipping through the pages of People magazine, I saw where a guy with whom I once spent a week in Hawaii had been named as one of sexiest men in America.

Thompson: A little tape can keep you straight

Last week I talked about how much better a person looks when they have good posture. Well, a physical therapist pointed out to me that there is a simple trick you can use to improve your posture. While you're standing up straight, with your shirt off, have someone apply tape along your spine. The best tape to use is some sort of medical/bandage tape, but I like duct tape. Whenever you start to slouch, you'll feel the tape pulling. You can also have someone apply duct tape in an X pattern across your shoulder blades. This will ...

Myers: ‘Object permanence’ viewed as gift from God

Rich: Find some comfort in this sandwich

Three friends and I were motoring our way from the western edge of Kentucky over to Louisville when someone proclaimed a sudden and immediate need for an orange Nehi soda.

Lunch guys: Domino’s delivers on cheesy promise

Our most loyal readers will look at this headline and say, "Hold on, Lunch Guys - you just reviewed a Domino's lunch!" Granted, we did just choke down the new Oreo dessert pizza, but the commercials for the new Crispy Melt Pizza had us dialing again for a noon office delivery.

Lunch Guys: Sonic’s new macaroni bites are pure heaven

We Lunch Guys are too hungry for mere "snacks" when noon comes. Yet when Sonic released its fried Mac & Cheese Snacks, we figured we could order as many snacks as it took to get through the lunch hour.

Myers: God’s always watching, showing his love

Amy has an old TV/VCR combo she's owned since before we got married. She never uses it anymore, so one day her father took it and hooked up a neat little contraption to it. A small, box with an antennae sat on top of the unit, receiving a wireless signal from a camera he mounted on the wall over Chloe's bed.

Lunch Guys: 2007 Noonie awards

"Did we actually eat all that?!" Such was our reaction as we Lunch Guys looked back on our 50 columns of 2007, covering everything from the Aloha Burger at Applebee's to the XL Bacon Cheesesteak at Sonic, with a couple Pizza Hut P'zones in between. Now it all comes down to this, our 2007 Noonie Awards in honor of the best and worst lunches of the year. (Please hold your applause until the end.)

Thompson: This shower head saves water and cash

There's a really cool shower head out now that you need to see. It's called the Evolve shower head. What makes it so cool? Well, when you turn it on it runs until the water warms up to 95 degrees. At that point the shower head automatically turns off. The benefit of this is that it eliminates the wasted water from between the time the water has heated up until you get in the shower. Even if you're not into water conversation, (but you should be), it's a neat gadget because it lets you know when ...

Rich: Few words best left not said but spelled

This is the kind of goody-two-shoes friends I have: Whenever Karen, Patti or Susan has a story to tell that involves someone cussing, they will not repeat the word. They spell it out. Unless it's really bad and then they will only give me the first letter of the word.

Myers: Object permanence serves as God’s gift to parents, too

In my last article, I wrote about "object permanence." This is the understanding that even though you can't see something, you know it still exists. If Chloe has or wants something we don't think she should have, we remove it from her sight and she forgets about it.
