Wanda: Winter has its own natural beauty

While the fall leaves on our trees dazzle us in autumn, they do not last very long into the winter months. So how can we find other interesting, dramatic features on our trees during the cold months?

Myers: No matter how you squeeze, one size won’t fit all

We were getting ready to go somewhere, and I'd sent Chloe to her room to get her shoes on. She loves putting on her own shoes, so you can imagine my surprise when I heard her start crying and screaming. I walked into her room and immediately discovered the cause of the problem: she was trying to put Cole's shoes on her feet.

Wilburn: Parents can keep picky eaters satisfied during holidays

Question: Thanksgiving and other holiday dinners are coming up, and I wish my 4-year-old would be willing to eat the traditional foods that will be prepared. I worry that she's still a picky eater and hasn't been willing to try much beyond macaroni and cheese, cereal, bread and apples. Do you have any tips for what I can do?

Thompson: Show your house, not your valuables

There has been a rash of robberies recently of people who are trying to sell their homes. The scam goes like this: Two separate people show up at the same time at an open house. One of the two will keep the owner, or agent, busy while the other person steals jewelry or financial information. If you're trying to sell your home, make sure that all of your valuables are locked up and out of sight.

Cook: Fantasy familiar, but still enjoyable

Ted Dekker is best known for his best-selling Christian fiction series, The Circle Trilogy, following the adventures of a man from our world who dreams of adventures in an alternate world of magical forests, terrifying demons, and ancient mysteries - or does he truly exist in this "Other World," and only dreams of our world?

Skaggs: Keep winter visitors out of your home

You might first think someone's having a little fun at your expense, but if you're being invaded by lady bugs, it is no Halloween prank. Now is the time of year when multicolored Asian lady beetles start moving into Georgia homes.

Murray: Pair the right wine with your turkey

Don't look now but Halloween's over your shoulder and the next big family holiday bash is Thanksgiving. And, of course, the burning question of the day is not whether President Barack Obama should have been given the Nobel Peace Prize or if the Army Corps of Engineers will try to turn Lake Lanier back into Death Valley East.

Rich: You can’t pay for the musings of this Poet

It wasn't intended to be a long conversation, but I should have known better than that. No call to Poet is ever abbreviated.
