Cole doesn't like open doors. Whenever he finds one at the house he rushes to close it, regardless of which side of it he's on. That led to a little trouble for him (and me) the other day.

Skaggs: Feeling contained? Embrace the space

Thompson: Use your filters for more than coffee

Deborah, a regular reader and contributor to this column, recently shared some "coffee filter" tips with me. I'll confess, I never knew there were so many things you could do with coffee filters besides make coffee. For example, you can use them to clean windows and mirrors - they're lint free and don't leave streaks. You can use them to drain used cooking oil and remove food debris. Finally, you can use them to weigh chopped food. (I'm starting to really like coffee filters!)

For most of us, the fall is the time of year for college football (GO DAWGS!), cool, crisp air in the mountains and raking leaves that seem to get everywhere. It is also a time of year when many people consider overseeding their warm season lawns to produce a green carpet of grass all year long.
