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.

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.
With many Georgia homeowners wondering if their lawns and landscapes will survive the ongoing drought, folks are looking for a "miracle fix" for their water woes.
As Halloween festivities are upon us, what is your favorite memory?
Your pet's mouth is full of bacteria. Just like yours.
We know the zones where the Earth's crust is thin and allows for devastating volcanic eruptions. But there seems to be no solution to the peril affecting many millions of people who live in the shadow of active volcanoes.
Succulent plants have become popular for good reasons: they are beautiful, drought tolerant and low maintenance.
If you're planning to send holiday care packages to the troops, now is the time to gather supplies and materials.
When I started preparing for this article in August, I planned to write about how women and men often show different signs of chest pain or heart attacks.
I'll be the first person to admit I'm not much of an outdoor person.
It was morning, and Chloe was watching me iron my shirt and pants for the day.
When I was about 12, Jake "the Snake" Roberts was a scary, scary man. His finishing move, the DDT, was the most devastating maneuver in professional wrestling. He would tuck your neck under his arm, then drive your forehead into the mat.
Strawberries are definitely a spring and early summer fruit, so why talk about them in October? Well this is the best time of year to plant them.
Just put Robert Downey Jr. and Robert Duvall in a room together and you'll have a movie, a truism that "The Judge" does its damnedest to disprove.
"I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers."
