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 ...
I believe object permanence - or the lack thereof - is God's gift to new parents.
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.
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.
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.
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.
"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 ...
At this point, we are all well aware of the seriousness of the ongoing drought. Water conservation efforts are ongoing, and hopefully all citizens are doing their part.
The weather is cool, and the holiday season is in full swing. And while I know many of you have other things on your mind, here are few tips for the home and garden.
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 ...
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.
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.
There's a safety campaign out now and its slogan is, "Don't veer for deer." Good advice. I personally don't think you should veer ever. A lot of roll-over accidents are caused by people veering to avoid a car that quickly pulls in front of them. This happened to a good friend of mine last week while he was driving up to Ohio to visit relatives. A car swerved in front of him ...
Have you ever written on a white board with a permanent marker? I have and it's a sickening feeling. Well, fear no more. If you make this mistake, simply take a dry-erase marker and scribble over the permanent marker and then erase. It works like magic. This technique also works with stains on your white board caused by dry-erase marks that have stayed on too long.
Do your feet stink? Here's a product from Duluth Trading Co. that might help. They're called the X-Static Socks. These socks not only wick away moisture from your feet, but they are also made with a strong anti-microbial yarn that fights odor. These socks actually kill 99.9 percent of the bacteria that causes odor.
Back in 2011, I created a list of the top holiday-themed books I love. One book was "Jacob Marley's Christmas Carol." The author, Tom Mula, has finally (and thankfully) released a new book this year which pays homage to another great literary classic while giving it an inventive spin.
Boats leak from the bottom. But a house can leak from the top or the bottom.
Plants and lawns cannot survive without water, but it is possible to have too much of a good thing.
Hot dogs are often a staple food for camping and grilling in the backyard and at tailgates parties.
The other night I went into the kitchen and poured myself a glass of juice. Chloe came in and said she needed to take some medicine before she went to bed. So, I set the juice on the counter and reached for her medicine bottle.
North Georgia's summer climate is often called "hot and humid." But that's not really accurate. There are times when it's warm and humid, and other times when it's hot and dry.
Not too many animals in the world get quite the same emotional response as snakes when they are found in the woods or around the house. People have been repulsed by and attracted to snakes ever since the dawn of time.
Those who find the subject of wine fascinating are advised to grab a book I just finished. No, not my copy; buy one of your own. It truly is one of the best offerings on the subject I have encountered in 30-plus years.
Cole and I went shopping at Walmart. As we walked toward the door, I saw her. She was obviously in poor health.
