Thompson: Safe hunting requires a harness

If you're a deer hunter, please make sure you wear your safety harness when climbing, hunting and descending a tree. Each year a number of hunters fall and suffer injuries from broken legs, paralysis and even death. It happened to a friend of mine last weekend; for the rest of his life he'll now have a steel rod in one of his legs. Be careful out there!

Wilburn:

You wake up, get ready for work, get the kids ready for school, drop the kids off, work all day, get home and fix a quick meal, run the kids to their activities, help the kids with homework, get the kids to bed, and go to bed yourself ... exhausted! For most American families, this is a typical day.

Thompson: Stomach can’t take the sea? Try ginger

What's the best way to prevent motion sickness? Take ginger. Several recent studies have shown the effectiveness of ginger as compared to other motion sickness solutions. The reason I like it is because it won't make me drowsy like over-the-counter medications. I personally learned of this when I was sailing near Hawaii several years ago. The captain of the boat had us take some ginger tablets right before some rough weather hit; we were all fine.

Rich: Turning into Mama isn’t such a bad deal

Now that Mama's gone, it seems pertinent that someone step up and take her place. Or try to, anyway. Regarding the kind of life that Mama had, I think I'd like to step up and volunteer to turn into Mama.

Thompson: Project your Halloween spirit this year

Halloween is less than two weeks away. If you're still trying to come up with a really clever way to decorate your house for the holiday, I've got a suggestion for you. Raise your garage door and cover the entrance with a large white sheet. Use duct tape to hold it in place. Borrow a computer projector from your office and hook it up to a laptop computer. With the computer projector inside the garage, aim it at the white sheet. Get a G-rated scary movie on DVD and load it onto your laptop. On Halloween night you ...
