Myers: ‘Object permanence’ viewed as gift from God

I believe object permanence - or the lack thereof - is God's gift to new parents.

Rich: Find some comfort in this sandwich

Three friends and I were motoring our way from the western edge of Kentucky over to Louisville when someone proclaimed a sudden and immediate need for an orange Nehi soda.

Lunch guys: Domino’s delivers on cheesy promise

Our most loyal readers will look at this headline and say, "Hold on, Lunch Guys - you just reviewed a Domino's lunch!" Granted, we did just choke down the new Oreo dessert pizza, but the commercials for the new Crispy Melt Pizza had us dialing again for a noon office delivery.

Lunch Guys: Sonic’s new macaroni bites are pure heaven

We Lunch Guys are too hungry for mere "snacks" when noon comes. Yet when Sonic released its fried Mac & Cheese Snacks, we figured we could order as many snacks as it took to get through the lunch hour.

Myers: God’s always watching, showing his love

Amy has an old TV/VCR combo she's owned since before we got married. She never uses it anymore, so one day her father took it and hooked up a neat little contraption to it. A small, box with an antennae sat on top of the unit, receiving a wireless signal from a camera he mounted on the wall over Chloe's bed.

Lunch Guys: 2007 Noonie awards

"Did we actually eat all that?!" Such was our reaction as we Lunch Guys looked back on our 50 columns of 2007, covering everything from the Aloha Burger at Applebee's to the XL Bacon Cheesesteak at Sonic, with a couple Pizza Hut P'zones in between. Now it all comes down to this, our 2007 Noonie Awards in honor of the best and worst lunches of the year. (Please hold your applause until the end.)

Thompson: This shower head saves water and cash

There's a really cool shower head out now that you need to see. It's called the Evolve shower head. What makes it so cool? Well, when you turn it on it runs until the water warms up to 95 degrees. At that point the shower head automatically turns off. The benefit of this is that it eliminates the wasted water from between the time the water has heated up until you get in the shower. Even if you're not into water conversation, (but you should be), it's a neat gadget because it lets you know when ...

Rich: Few words best left not said but spelled

This is the kind of goody-two-shoes friends I have: Whenever Karen, Patti or Susan has a story to tell that involves someone cussing, they will not repeat the word. They spell it out. Unless it's really bad and then they will only give me the first letter of the word.

Myers: Object permanence serves as God’s gift to parents, too

In my last article, I wrote about "object permanence." This is the understanding that even though you can't see something, you know it still exists. If Chloe has or wants something we don't think she should have, we remove it from her sight and she forgets about it.

Thompson: Don’t veer for deer — just slam on your brakes

There's a safety campaign out now and its slogan is, "Don't veer for deer." Good advice. I personally don't think you should veer ever. A lot of roll-over accidents are caused by people veering to avoid a car that quickly pulls in front of them. This happened to a good friend of mine last week while he was driving up to Ohio to visit relatives. A car swerved in front of him and he swerved to avoid it. His Tahoe rolled twice, but fortunately no one was injured. My safety slogan is, "Don't veer for anything ...

Thompson: Save your dry-erase board with this easy fix

Have you ever written on a white board with a permanent marker? I have and it's a sickening feeling. Well, fear no more. If you make this mistake, simply take a dry-erase marker and scribble over the permanent marker and then erase. It works like magic. This technique also works with stains on your white board caused by dry-erase marks that have stayed on too long.

England: Needle shedding makes ‘evergreen’ moniker a misnomer

Question: I bought a white pine Christmas tree and did not notice until I got it home that it has a lot of brown needles between the outside and the trunk. Did I get a bad tree?
