In last month's column I described some of the most popular red wine grapes and the wines they produce. This month we're taking on white wine grapes. So, pour yourself a glass of chardonnay and read on.
It would behoove all you men to thoroughly understand one thing: We women normally conduct our romances by committee.
Spring is here, and with it comes the urge to dig, prune, plant and mow. For many gardeners living in Northeast Georgia, a much anticipated event is finally here - the 2008 Spring Garden Expo!
The other day I was looking back at some old pictures of Chloe. Some of them were more than a year old. If it weren't for me or Amy in the pictures with her, I would think I was looking at someone else's child, not mine. I was amazed at how much Chloe had changed in such a short a time.

Have you ever heard of Lava Buns? If not, you need to check it out. It's basically a seat cushion that you can either heat up in the microwave or cool in the freezer. The internal microcore element holds the hot or cold for up to six hours. It's great for the deer stand, the football stadium bleachers or the Fourth of July picnic. The name is kind of weird, but the ...
OK, did you do well on last week's pop quiz?
I hope you had a wonderful and safe New Year. Now close your books, clear off your desk and pull out a No. 2 pencil. IT'S QUIZ TIME! Let's see how much you remember from the tips I provided in 2007! (The answers are at the bottom. No peeking. I'm serious).
At Chloe's day care, they have a large window cut into the wall. Every once in a while, while I'm on lunch, I'll drop in and look at her through that window. From the hallway, I can see how she's doing, how she's interacting with the other kids and whether she's behaving.
If you're anything like us Lunch Guys, you're probably still reeling from a holiday-food hangover. The sweet potatoes, the pecan pies, the many McRibs (yeah, they're back!) - they did a number on us this year.
When Ferroll Sams, one of the most beloved writers of Southern literature, was inducted into his native Georgia's Writers of Hall of Fame, he did not let the moment pass without taking the opportunity to underscore one of life's most enduring truths.
The other day I was digging through a box for one thing or the other, when I ran across a picture of my best pal, Karen, and me when we were in junior high and on the student council together.
Just as things were looking up for Georgia gardeners after last month's rain, Northeast Georgia had temperatures in the teens just after the New Year's holiday. Unfortunately, drought-stressed plants will likely be hit hard.

The name tangerine comes from Tangier, Morocco, the port from which the first tangerines were shipped to Europe.

Back in 2011, I created a list of the top holiday-themed books I love. One book was "Jacob Marley's Christmas Carol." The author, Tom Mula, has finally (and thankfully) released a new book this year which pays homage to another great literary classic while giving it an inventive spin.

Hot dogs are often a staple food for camping and grilling in the backyard and at tailgates parties.
The other night I went into the kitchen and poured myself a glass of juice. Chloe came in and said she needed to take some medicine before she went to bed. So, I set the juice on the counter and reached for her medicine bottle.
North Georgia's summer climate is often called "hot and humid." But that's not really accurate. There are times when it's warm and humid, and other times when it's hot and dry.
