Myers: If you're looking for guidance, just trust in your father

Someone was teasing Cole. Cole had several pieces of candy, and an adult was trying to convince Cole to give some of the candy to him. "You already have so many pieces, surely you can spare one or two," the adult said to Cole. "Besides, it's my candy anyway."

Thompson: Funky earbuds blink along with the music

Gainesville has a lot of walkers and joggers. If you go out and exercise at night, you should always wear reflective gear. I'd also like to recommend that you use the iBlink earbuds. These cool earbuds, which work with most MP3 players, actually have LED lights built into them. The lights actually blink with the rhythm of the music. The iBlink comes with white, blue or pink lights and can be found at most online retailers like Amazon for $30.

Use an e-book to catch up on reading while you exercise

For Christmas my wife bought me a Kindle. If you're not familiar with this cool gadget, it's basically a lightweight, electronic reading device. It can download books and even magazines and newspapers. The reason I'm sharing this is because of one of the really neat things you can do with it - exercise! Just set the font to the largest size and use it on either a stationary bike or treadmill. The one-touch page turning feature makes it easy to use. Caution: If you sweat a lot, consider covering the device in clear plastic wrap.

Rich: A perfect blend of Southern grits and Vegas glitz

Like any self-respecting Southerner, it's hard for me to pass up reading a well-written obituary. Especially when it runs in the Wall Street Journal and begins by saying she was "a dash of Southern class in a raucous old boys club."

Thompson: Athletic shirt great for sleeping, too

If you're not familiar with the Tech Tee T-shirt, you should be. (These T-shirts also go by the name "Dry Fit"). Instead of cotton, they're made with a polyester blend. The beauty of these shirts is that they have the ability to wick away sweat from your body to the outside of the shirt where it will evaporate. Athletes like them because they'll keep you warm and dry in the winter and cool and dry in the summer. Why do I like them so much? Because they're great to sleep in. The slick polyester material will ...

Thompson: Test your knowledge of last year’s tips

I want to start off by thanking all of you who gave me tips in 2009. Without your help, this column would not be possible. Trust me, after doing this column for five years, it's hard to come up with new tips.
