During the holiday season when we Lunch Guys are going over the river and through the woods, we inevitably pass a Cracker Barrel.
Question: A friend gave me a streptocarpella plant from her mother's estate, but neither of us knows much about it. How should I care for it?
Last year, as New Year's approached, a reporter called and asked for my resolutions for the upcoming year for a story she was doing.
We Lunch Guys are always eager to embrace new lunch technology. If we had been doing this decades ago, we would have said to each other, "Let's try that new 'drive through' thing in our Model T."
Did you follow a family tradition when it came to selecting foods for your New Year's celebration? My mother, grandmother and her mother before her always served (of course, made from "scratch") black-eyed peas, collards, roasted pork and corn bread. This was considered a lucky meal in our home and pretty well all over the South.
There are many different ways to cook vegetables, each resulting in their own specific result - whether you're going for the dry heat of an oven or the quickness of the microwave.
A friend and I were just talking about this. Talking about how so many people want to write a book.
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. (I've been known to forget). Well, I was given another great suggestion this week for having a camera phone - Use it to take a picture of your X-ray! Apparently a number of patients are doing this so they can share it with nurses, therapists, other doctors and even friends.
Question: Can you tell me why my flowering quince never produces fruit, even though it has lots of blooms each year?
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.
Recently I had someone e-mail my office with the following concern: "I've heard that it could cause cancer if you froze water repeatedly in a water bottle."
The line of Big Mouth Burgers at Chili's has long been on the Lunch Guys "Best Burgers" short list. The name captures the spirit of these magnificent monstrosities.
Two rather disturbing things happened during our family Easter last year, both of which I hope can be corrected this year.
I love pumpkins! To me, they symbolize fall and the coming of cool weather.
Editor's note: Following the death of James Garner last week, movie archive reviewer Andrew Akers selected "36 Hours" to pay tribute to the famous actor.
A recent survey published online showed some shocking results about science literacy in America. Twenty-five percent of people thought the sun orbits around the earth. That is truly disturbing.
The week ending July 20 brought unusual, but not unheard of, weather to Hall County.
Let's discuss the pound cake.
In her song, Aretha Franklin was explicit. Not in the parental warning kind of way, but in the honest and this-is-what-I-want way. She wanted respect. So she demanded it with a catchy tune.
The other day Cole and I were sitting around hanging out together. Out of the blue, he looked at me and said, "I want to be an adult."
Hopefully, you're enjoying a quiet July 20 while sitting down with The Times. In history, today's date hasn't always been uneventful.
The worst thing you can add to a picnic or outdoor party is a mosquito. Not just one mosquito, but a whole swarm of mosquitoes.
Hot wings, dips and other snacks are main parts of the high school, college and professional football season for fans.
Southern summers are the best.
