Wilburn: Think twice before drinking empty calories

Have you ever been overwhelmed by the hundreds of choices you have when it comes to beverages? Between sports drinks, vitamin waters, energy drinks or specialty teas, what is the best for your health?

Rich: Even little notes can jog larger memories

When Mama died and the remainders and reminders of her life had to be sorted, distributed and, in some rare incidences, disposed of, my sister, Louise, and I marveled constantly at the historian that Mama was.

Thompson: Forget the floss if your ring is stuck

If you have a ring stuck on your finger, there are several things you can do to get it off. The easiest method is to just hold your hand up in the air for a couple of minutes. See if the reduced blood flow is enough to loosen the ring. The next easiest thing to do is to apply some kind of lubricant like hand lotion, hair conditioner or WD-40. If this doesn't work for you, then your next best bet is to soak your hand in cold water for a while. (Note: This is why you should take ...

Reeger Cook: Delicious tale embraces your inner storyteller

I took a look at my bookshelf a few weeks ago, cluttered with comic books, sci-fi and fantasy novels, art books and martial arts instruction guides (the last being my husband's). I realized this was an opportune moment to step outside of my usual fare of books.

Skaggs: Give leaves new life as blanket for flower beds

In a few weeks, deciduous trees across North Georgia will begin their fall color show - green will give way to gold, red and yellow. And then they will drop. Instead of spending your fall burning leaves, consider using them as a blanket - for your plants.

Myers: Keeping a check on anger means controlling sin, too

I don't know what set her off. It could have been anything really - she'd been skulking around the house all morning like a wounded bear. I tried to talk to her and she growled at me. I tried to hug her and she pushed me away. Chloe was in a bad mood, and she was determined to stay that way.

Thompson: Don’t lose those plastic tag holders

Here's a great tip from Julian Wilson: "New slacks and jackets frequently have size tags and other informational tags held on by what amounts to being plastic "staples" that have little "T" ends. If you just cut the plastic on the other side of the tag, the whole thing can come apart and the small plastic pieces may get lost in the material of the clothing and irritate you when wearing it. Just put a piece of masking tape across the "T" before cutting the other side. This will keep the small plastic pieces from getting lost.

Thompson: Pantihose get new life holding up trash bags

Is there anything more annoying than having your trash bag fall down into your trash can? Actually I don't have this problem anymore because I buy fitted trash bags specifically made for my trash can. (Yes it is a waste of money, but it is one of my few indulgences.) If you don't want to buy fitted trash bags, here's your tip: Cut off the elastic waist band from an old pair of panty hose and use it to hold the trash bag in place.
