During the holiday season when we Lunch Guys are going over the river and through the woods, we inevitably pass a Cracker Barrel.
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."

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 ...
Question: Can you tell me why my flowering quince never produces fruit, even though it has lots of blooms each year?

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.

I love pumpkins! To me, they symbolize fall and the coming of cool weather.
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, ...

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?
