Pasta delivered? Now that's an idea so crazy, it just might work. At least that's what we Lunch Guys thought when we heard about Pizza Hut's newest offering: Tuscani Pasta, available in Creamy Chicken Alfredo and Meaty Marinara.
My worse fears are about to be realized: Mama has announced her intentions to write a book. My payback is coming. Before the bombshell dropped, I was ruler of my own universe, which means that I also reigned royally over Mama. I was completely in control of my little kingdom. Then in a matter of seconds, the bomb exploded and there was a changing of the guard. Suddenly, I was dethroned and the new queen ...
When I was a kid, I had the M&M's people figured out. Their slogan was, "The milk chocolate melts in your mouth, not in your hand." Well, of course it melted in your mouth. If you held an M&M for too long, the candy coating would start to melt in your hand, coloring it. In a rush to minimize the mess, you would pop the candy into your mouth long before it ever got to the chocolate.
Important safety tip: If you're going to be working with raw meat, make sure that any cut on your hand is covered. Also, make sure that you wear rubber gloves. This applies even if you just have a paper cut. If you're not careful, the bacteria from the meat can get into your cut and can cause a really nasty infection. I was going to include some pictures of people with these infections. However, my wife saw them and said they were too gross!
Warm weather is a welcome sight for gardeners. But the problems it brings with insects and disease are not. Fortunately, there are several things we can do to help prevent and control them.
Question: I recently saw a reference to a plant with the common name "catchfly." Is this the same as a Venus flytrap?
Looking for a way to entertain friends and give them good information at the same time? No, this does not involve Tupperware, Oprah's Big Give or a chain letter. I'm suggesting a wine-tasting party. Wine-tasting parties can be fun, if managed properly. And your guests will leave your house saying things like, "I never knew zinfandel could be red," or "Wow, I sure was fooled by that $7 merlot." Holding such a social event requires ...
For a couple of years, I had been trying to get Mama to write my column one week.
Marital satisfaction tends to decrease during the early years of marriage, and for some it reaches a low point during the middle years. This change in satisfaction is most often related to increased stresses, such as increasing work demands, parenting adolescents, caring for aging parents and planning for retirement.
The next time you go to a live concert, don't forget to bring the ear plugs. I'm serious. Over the years I've attended a number of concerts ranging from hard rock to country to contemporary Christian. The one thing they all had in common is that the music was so loud I wouldn't get my hearing back until noon the next day. A friend recommended the ear plugs tip to me ...
Rain gardens are becoming increasingly popular in the home landscape. A rain garden is a natural or dug shallow depression designed to capture and soak up stormwater runoff from your roof or other impervious areas around your home like driveways, walkways and even compacted lawn areas. They can be used as a buffer to capture runoff from the home landscape before it enters a lake, pond or river. The rain garden is planted with suitable ...
As a toddler I cherished the time spent in the kitchen with my grandmother. Her time and patience encouraged and developed my love of cooking and trying new recipes.
To be quite frank, I don't remember from where the idea arose. It could have been at the suggestion of one of two friends or - and this is quite possible - it was my own bright idea.
"I'm going to get you!" I threaten as I start to slowly lumber toward her, wiggling my fingers in the air.
Here's a great recycling tip from Betty Duff. Instead of throwing your newspapers away, save them and give them to the Humane Society. They can always use them for the animals. Just make sure that you don't include the glossy inserts or the comics. (I was told by the Humane Society that the cats and dogs really like my column). The Society's address is 845 W. Ridge Road in Gainesville. They're open 10 ...
I rarely re-read books once I'm finished with them. But every now and then, I come across a published work that not only do I want to revisit, but I feel as if I have to in order to pick up on things I am positive I missed the first read through. One of those books is Volume One of the graphic novel series, "Cursed Pirate Girl." It is written and illustrated by Jeremy Bastian, ...
California Highway 58, east of Bakersfield, presents some truly astounding sights. It's still a rare occurrence here in Georgia to see more than one wind turbine. At Tehachapi Pass on Cal. 58, there are 5,000 of them.
If you have a creative side and have some room to plant flowers, cutting gardens can be a fun and rewarding way to surround one's self with beautiful flowers indoors as well as outdoors for parties.
Spirits were high but clouds hung low during graduation ceremonies on the Brenau campus a week ago. Commenting on the light rain that was falling, Brenau President Ed Schrader said, jokingly, "according to the weather radar on my computer, these rain clouds don't exist."
The front door of our church doesn't have a doorknob. Instead, it has a handle with a small thumb latch above it. To open the door, you have to depress the thumb latch until it clicks and pull. That's all. Easy, right?
Storm water is something we don't think too much about on a day-to-day basis.
Recycling is all the rage, from aluminum cans and newspapers to plastic bottles and bags. But did you know you can recycle in your lawn?
