Consider installing a few rain gardens

Storm water is usually we all don't think too much about on a day-to-day basis. When it is usually thought of, we all want it to be carried away off our streets and away from our homes.

Around the Home: Tips to prepare your Easter ham safely

If you've been shopping for ham recently, you may have found yourself bewildered by the many choices available: fresh, cured, cooked, spiral-cut, smoked, bone in, boneless, country. It's no wonder people have so many questions about cooking and storing ham.

Eyes of the Father: Don't want — God will provide your needs

Chloe's come up with a new declaration. I guess in her mind, it's more of an explanation. Lately, she's discovered that she lacks certain things. These things are not necessary to health or survival, though.

Prepare for the descent of the winged red-eyed ‘monsters’

In the coming weeks, much of Hall County will be invaded by a rare sight; six legged, winged creatures with red eyes. These creatures are not from a far off land or a distant planet, but they are a normal occurrence for our part of the country. Georgia's only 13-year cicada will emerge from the ground.

Off the Shelves: ‘Homelessness’ should be on your bookshelf

Our world is not a perfect place. If it were, we would always help our fellow man in need without a moment's hesitation, without placing stigmas on those lacking the same privileges and luxuries as we have.

Wine without Pretense: Trotting the globe for some signature grapes

I was telling students in one of my wine appreciation classes at Brenau University about wines from Argentina. Malbec, I told them, is the signature red wine grape of Argentina. Likewise, I declared, that country's trademark white wine grape is torrontes.

Eyes of the Father: Do we have God or does God have us?

We were on vacation at the beach last summer and went swimming at the hotel's swimming pool. I don't know about you, but there seems to be something wrong with that. If you're at the beach, why are you swimming in a pool? In spite of the warped logic, that's where we were.

The times they are a-changing, yet again

I have never particularly liked change. Perhaps one of the worst days of my young life was when I entered the eighth grade. After attending Appling Elementary School for seven years and being taught by only four teachers for that entire time, I was petrified at the thought of moving on up to Harlem High with six teachers for the eighth grade alone.

‘Love Virtually’ is a new take on fantasy vs. reality

While the Internet allows us access to information and communication worldwide, it is arguable it has also contaminated our ability to interact with others in person. The Internet is a place where we can choose to remain anonymous, and even create imaginative alter-egos. Thus we can live out secret fantasies, speak openly without negative repercussions and share private friendships, even romances, with people that may or may not be what they claim.

So many spring growing questions, and so little time

What is that yellow plant that's so pretty right now? What's the name of those trees that bloom so early every year? Why doesn't my camellia bloom as profusely as my neighbors'? Why do my azaleas bloom in early April while my sister's bloom in May?

Around the Home: Wasting food is wasting money, so follow these tips

We throw away 14 percent of the food bought in the U.S. That adds up to about $1,000 to $2,000 a year for an average family of four (The range depends on whether the family uses a thrifty food plan or a more liberal one, and is based on September 2008 food prices).
