Thompson: Laundry product saves you from ‘shirt pucker’

I hate "shirt puckers." What's a shirt pucker? When you've had a shirt on a hanger for a long time, puckers are created in the shoulder of the shirt. The simplest way to get rid of the puckers is to spray them with Downey Wrinkle Release while you're wearing the shirt. Just use your hand to smooth the pucker.

Thompson: Microwave-safe colander helps cut the grease

The microwave is the easiest way to brown ground beef. A lot of you already know this, but here's a tip you probably don't know.

After a clammy early spring, the sun is back finally. It's going to rise toward its highest point in the sky by June 21, the longest day of the year. Measured as an angle from the ground, in Gainesville the sun will be about 78 degrees up. It can't ever be exactly vertical above us because the subsolar point, where the sun is perpendicular above the ground, doesn't move this far north.
