Rich: Stranger’s kindness is repaid over time

Christmas never comes to me without a childhood memory that, in turn, throws its arms around another memory and brings it tagging along.

Rich: The spirit of giving can last for a lifetime

At a Thanksgiving luncheon, I was holding my 18-month-old nephew, Tripp, as I visited tables to speak to folks. I stopped and greeted a friend, patting him on his back. Tripp watched quietly then leaned down, stretching out his little arm and patted Billy, too, in that awkward, uncoordinated way that babies have.

I chuckled, realizing that Tripp had simply emulated what he had seen me do. See, children are like that. They, more often than not, simply grow up imitating those they watch. Good or bad.

Lunch guys: Subway’s new Feast starts meat scuffle

England: Orchids don’t require much maintenance

Question: I recently purchased an orchid on impulse, but I know nothing about houseplants. Can you give me some advice on how to take care of it (the label says Phalaenopsis) and perhaps get it to bloom again next year?

Rich: Saying good-bye to a great character

After early church and Sunday school, Mama and I had hurried to the grocery store. An older friend was ailing badly with the flu, so I told Mama I'd make him some quick homemade chicken soup and she could make the cornbread muffins. Then, I'd run it over to him.

Lunch guys: At least sandwich has pretty good ham

"Black Forest Ham" is what Subway is pushing now, so of course it's what we Lunch Guys are eating. In the franchise that Jared built, this ham is a lean option with the promise of you ending up an "after" picture in Subway's next weight-loss ad. But is this Black Forest Ham sub all promise and no punch?
