Rich: Extend a hand, and someone might take it

Daddy used to say that when most people ask, "How're you doin'?" they don't really care. It's just something they say to make conversation.

Thompson: Cup hooks help with more than coffee mugs

Do you have debris stuck between the cracks of your wood deck? If so, here's the simplest solution I know on how to remove this stuff. Simply screw a large cup hook onto the end of a broom stick.

Myers: Each day dawns new ways to follow God

It was, without a doubt, the scariest moment of my life. One recent Saturday afternoon, Chloe and Cole asked for an apple after lunch. I went into the kitchen and cut an apple into eight pieces, then gave four of them to Chloe and four of them to Cole.

Rich: It’s too easy to feed an addiction

When she first brought it up, mentioning it in passing more than anything else, I thought she was joshing so I shrugged it off with a smile. Fortunately, I did not make any wisecrack that I would now regret.

Thompson: Scan your shoes last at airport

I travel quite a bit and I go through my fair share of airport security screenings. Here's a good tip to remember if you're traveling this summer. Put your most valuable items, like a laptop computer, on the security conveyor belt first. Always put your shoes on the conveyor belt last. It's common for people to miss the last thing they put on the belt and walk away without it. I can assure you that you won't forget your shoes!
