Thompson: Try office storage items in your kitchen

Here's a great kitchen storage tip. Use a slotted metal file holder from your office to store thin items like baking sheets and cutting boards. It actually looks kind of cool on your kitchen counter. Just make sure you remove it before your boss comes to visit.

Skaggs: Fall in the garden still holds much work

Fall is an exciting time for gardening. It may be our last chance to have fun in the garden until next spring. Fortunately, we can garden essentially year-round in Georgia, and fall is the ideal time for many activities.

Rich: Scales tip evenly between food and diets

Publisher's Weekly, a trade publication for the book publishing industry, is always full of interesting tidbits. Annually, it publishes the number of books sold for each title that sold over 100,000 copies in one year.

I am always interested to see how these numbers shape up.

Murray: A little research goes a long way

There are two places where folks who like an occasional glass of wine - but who don't know much about it - feel pangs of anxiety. They feel their throats constrict, their self-esteem begin to melt like Dove bars left in an August car.

Rosemond: Son's 'stupid' act may come from attention need

Thompson: Safe hunting requires a harness

If you're a deer hunter, please make sure you wear your safety harness when climbing, hunting and descending a tree. Each year a number of hunters fall and suffer injuries from broken legs, paralysis and even death. It happened to a friend of mine last weekend; for the rest of his life he'll now have a steel rod in one of his legs. Be careful out there!

You wake up, get ready for work, get the kids ready for school, drop the kids off, work all day, get home and fix a quick meal, run the kids to their activities, help the kids with homework, get the kids to bed, and go to bed yourself ... exhausted! For most American families, this is a typical day.

Thompson: Stomach can’t take the sea? Try ginger

What's the best way to prevent motion sickness? Take ginger. Several recent studies have shown the effectiveness of ginger as compared to other motion sickness solutions. The reason I like it is because it won't make me drowsy like over-the-counter medications. I personally learned of this when I was sailing near Hawaii several years ago. The captain of the boat had us take some ginger tablets right before some rough weather hit; we were all fine.
