Myers: Each day dawns new ways to follow God

It was, without a doubt, the scariest moment of my life. One recent Saturday afternoon, Chloe and Cole asked for an apple after lunch. I went into the kitchen and cut an apple into eight pieces, then gave four of them to Chloe and four of them to Cole.

Rich: It’s too easy to feed an addiction

When she first brought it up, mentioning it in passing more than anything else, I thought she was joshing so I shrugged it off with a smile. Fortunately, I did not make any wisecrack that I would now regret.

Thompson: Scan your shoes last at airport

I travel quite a bit and I go through my fair share of airport security screenings. Here's a good tip to remember if you're traveling this summer. Put your most valuable items, like a laptop computer, on the security conveyor belt first. Always put your shoes on the conveyor belt last.

Thompson: Here’s one way to hook a pickup truck

Pickup trucks are great to have. Besides making you sexier, they're great for hauling stuff. One problem though is when your items slide toward the cab in the truck bed and you have to climb in the truck to retrieve them. The solution: make a "truck stick." As the name implies it's a long stick with a hook on the end. Just leave it in the bed of your truck and use it whenever your items slide away from you.
