Ginny Enzor of Gainesville recently shared a cool product with me. It's called the EasyHeat Freeze Free Thermostat.
A couple of days ago, I fixed Chloe and Cole lunch. They ate it all, which was a good bit of food.

I have to tell you that I was extremely disappointed when I tested this new product: The Craftsman Hammerhead Auto Hammer. As its name implies, it's an automated hammer. It's really a mini jackhammer that hits a nail 35 times per second. It is battery operated and has the form factor of a hammer. Why wasn't I impressed with it? When I tried it out with a variety of nails, I found that it would bend the smaller nails and wouldn't be able to drive the larger ones. The cost is $99 and you can find ...
Today, plant a tree.
Dixie Dew didn't notice, but I did. She was too busy sniffing grass and prancing her bigger-than-it-should-be tail while I was casually observing life during an afternoon walk.
Around this time of year, I begin sending out applications to individuals interested in taking our Georgia Master Gardener classes at the Hall County Extension office.

One man or woman's cute and cuddly critter is another person's pest. Or sometimes what begins as a cute animal turns into a pest after it eats your prize-winning roses or caused $1,000 in damage to the garage or attic.
It's that time again. The school year has officially begun, which means early, hurried mornings, school supply lists and dents in your wallet for lunch money. Oh joy!
Gentlemen, masochists that we are, we struggle out into the North Georgia summer heat and humidity to battle with that masculine dragon - the grill.
The time is nigh and fantasy football approaches!
Colors change with the light. This was an issue recently when a friend was having a vintage Porsche repainted, and the shade of ivory just didn't look right.
