It's midsummer in Georgia, but it could be spring all over again for vegetables. We generally plant summer vegetable crops in April and wind them up about this time of year, but we can grow two summer crops in Georgia.
Good, basic nutrition doesn't have to be a mystery.
Several years ago, an obituary in the Atlanta paper caught my eye and I clipped it out. I ran across it recently and, again as then, I found myself fascinated by how it summed up the man who died and what that summation says about our society.
I was in a grocery store the other day and noticed that they were selling "Jar Opening Rubber Grippers." The grippers were actually just round pieces of rubberized shelf liner. So, save yourself some money, buy the shelf liner and make as many grippers as you want.

Chloe loves books. Every night before she goes to bed, Amy or I have to read to her. Sometimes, in the middle of the day, she comes to us with a book in her hand, begging us to read it to her.
Last Saturday I had something very unique happen to me. I was traveling down Ga. 53 in my Jeep when I discovered that when I took my foot off of the accelerator, the vehicle didn't slow down. In fact the Jeep kept going at 50 miles per hour with no intention of slowing down. A normal person in this situation would have probably started screaming for mommy - but not the tip man. (OK, I never said I was modest). Remembering an old tip, I put my foot underneath the accelerator and pulled it towards me. This helped some. After ...
One of my favorite quotes is from the 1990s. "Snoop Doggy Dogg. Need to get a jobby job."
