Thompson: Cell phone cameras can serve as a notepad, too

I've written before about the value of having a camera on your cell phone. For example, you can use it to take a picture of your hotel room number or parking space so you don't forget either one.

Skaggs: Plan your plant buying to keep nice color around

The normal way of buying flowering plants tends to produce landscapes with three stages every spring: a glorious flash, a fizzle and wait-till-next-year. It seems to happen almost every year.

Thompson: Craving some pumpkin carving? Have I got a tip for you ...

Well, it's time for my SUPERSIZED Halloween tips column. This is my biggest column of the year and I've got a lot of great Halloween tips. Most of them are on how to have a great jack-o-lantern. However, I've also added some on Halloween in general. Look for me when you're out trick-or-treating. This year I'm going as a "duct tape mummy." (What can I say, I love duct tape almost as much as I love Halloween). Have fun and be careful out there!

Everyone seems to think making a cheesesteak is as easy as making a ham sandwich. That's why we Lunch Guys have seen franchises from Quiznos to Dominos try their hand at "cheesesteak" lunches - and flounder where Philadelphians flourish.
