Homecoming queens fade as years pass

The subject of homecoming queens started in the odd way that some topics enter into a conversation. It really had nothing to do with what we were discussing but then, in a very real way, it did.

Thompson: Nifty tabs keep your foil on the roll

If you look at the ends of most aluminum foil and plastic wrap boxes, there are push-in tabs that help keep the roll from flying out of the box. These "locking tabs" as they're referred to have been around for years, but most people don't know about them. Check it out. (Contributed by Jere Randall).

Myers: Four little words cause such big pain

Chloe just said four words I've been dreading to hear. I knew they were coming. My friend Chris had already warned me. He said I'd hear them one day, and that I'd better be preparing myself.

Thompson: Don’t bother with a wallet at the beach — use your sandals

Well, it's summer and time to get some flip-flops. Some great ones are made by Reef, and the company also has some cool gadgets that you can get built into your flip-flops. One model, called the Dram, has a built-in bottle opener located in the sole of the shoe. Another model, called the Fanning, has a built-in canister that can hold 3 ounces of a liquid. My personal favorite is the model called the Stash. As the name implies, these flip-flops have a secret compartment that allows you to store a small amount of cash, credit cards or a ...

Thompson: This column could make you happier

I enjoy writing this column and I hope you enjoy reading it. I recently had someone say to me that they liked my column but not all of the tips applied to them. I tried to explain to the person that, in fact, all of the tips applied to them. I told them that even if one of my tips didn't help them directly, they should think of everybody they know to see if the tip would benefit someone else. You see, the reason I love tips so much is that even if I don't benefit from a ...
