I picked up the package left on the back porch and read the mailing label that said "RCR Racing, Welcome, N.C." I smiled and hurried inside to tear it open.
Is it just me or is the Christmas season beginning earlier each year? Personally, I would like to at least finish trick-or-treating before I begin thinking about Christmas. But whether you've got your shopping wrapped up or haven't even started, it's time to decorate the Christmas tree.
Flipping through the pages of People magazine, I saw where a guy with whom I once spent a week in Hawaii had been named as one of sexiest men in America.
Last week I talked about how much better a person looks when they have good posture. Well, a physical therapist pointed out to me that there is a simple trick you can use to improve your posture. While you're standing up straight, with your shirt off, have someone apply tape along your spine. The best tape to use is some sort of medical/bandage tape, but I like duct tape. Whenever you start to slouch, you'll feel the tape pulling. You can also have someone apply duct tape in an X pattern across your shoulder blades. This will ...
I believe object permanence - or the lack thereof - is God's gift to new parents.
Three friends and I were motoring our way from the western edge of Kentucky over to Louisville when someone proclaimed a sudden and immediate need for an orange Nehi soda.
Our most loyal readers will look at this headline and say, "Hold on, Lunch Guys - you just reviewed a Domino's lunch!" Granted, we did just choke down the new Oreo dessert pizza, but the commercials for the new Crispy Melt Pizza had us dialing again for a noon office delivery.
We Lunch Guys are too hungry for mere "snacks" when noon comes. Yet when Sonic released its fried Mac & Cheese Snacks, we figured we could order as many snacks as it took to get through the lunch hour.
Amy has an old TV/VCR combo she's owned since before we got married. She never uses it anymore, so one day her father took it and hooked up a neat little contraption to it. A small, box with an antennae sat on top of the unit, receiving a wireless signal from a camera he mounted on the wall over Chloe's bed.
"Did we actually eat all that?!" Such was our reaction as we Lunch Guys looked back on our 50 columns of 2007, covering everything from the Aloha Burger at Applebee's to the XL Bacon Cheesesteak at Sonic, with a couple Pizza Hut P'zones in between. Now it all comes down to this, our 2007 Noonie Awards in honor of the best and worst lunches of the year. (Please hold your applause until the end.)
At this point, we are all well aware of the seriousness of the ongoing drought. Water conservation efforts are ongoing, and hopefully all citizens are doing their part.
The weather is cool, and the holiday season is in full swing. And while I know many of you have other things on your mind, here are few tips for the home and garden.
There's a really cool shower head out now that you need to see. It's called the Evolve shower head. What makes it so cool? Well, when you turn it on it runs until the water warms up to 95 degrees. At that point the shower head automatically turns off. The benefit of this is that it eliminates the wasted water from between the time the water has heated up until you get in the shower. Even if you're not into water conversation, (but you should be), it's a neat gadget because it lets you know when ...
This is the kind of goody-two-shoes friends I have: Whenever Karen, Patti or Susan has a story to tell that involves someone cussing, they will not repeat the word. They spell it out. Unless it's really bad and then they will only give me the first letter of the word.
In my last article, I wrote about "object permanence." This is the understanding that even though you can't see something, you know it still exists. If Chloe has or wants something we don't think she should have, we remove it from her sight and she forgets about it.
I call it Chloe's "Story of Love."
A colonoscopy probably isn't the first item you would think to check off your bucket list when you turn 50, but it's one that could save your life.
In my previous article, I began discussing the factors that affect weight in our pets, briefly mentioning the simple idea of energy balance and how much goes into the body versus how much is spent each day.
There are a lot of differences between Georgia's colleges and universities. Some are privately funded, some with tax dollars. Some have historic campuses, like the University of Georgia, which incorporated in 1785. Others were founded in the 20th century, like Georgia State.
The past couple of weeks I think my office has shipped close to 100 soil samples to the test lab in Athens. This is always a sign that spring is on the horizon as people begin to prepare and plan what they want to grow this year.
My firstborn and only daughter turned 28 last week. In our family, we make a big deal out of birthdays.
"Your dog is fat. And it's your fault."
Cigarette manufacturers have received flak for the health dangers of their products since the first surgeon general's report on the subject was released in 1964. Parents, activists and even former Marlboro men have spoken out against their products and practices.
Through the years, garden folklore has observed some facts about how gardens are planted and arranged. Some plants naturally grow well together, while others do not.
You always can learn something new from The Times. I did in January. And that led to some fond memories from my past and conversations with folks with a real history in this town.
We watched in awe as he shook the salt shaker until a thick, white layer topped his entire breakfast, including the bacon and sausage. In the back of my mind, I thought it was only a matter of time before this man became a patient at Northeast Georgia Medical Center (NGMC).
At dinnertime one evening, Cole wasn't eating his sandwich. He did, however, make several references to dessert.
I recently had a client ask me a very unusual question.
While much of the northern and eastern U.S. shivered in frigid weather, parts of England experienced severe storms. Recent research suggests that these record-setting events were due to warming of the Arctic.
An earthquake in South Dakota two weeks ago. Another in South Carolina last week. It would be tempting to come up with scary headlines now.
