Last year, as New Year's approached, a reporter called and asked for my resolutions for the upcoming year for a story she was doing.
We Lunch Guys are always eager to embrace new lunch technology. If we had been doing this decades ago, we would have said to each other, "Let's try that new 'drive through' thing in our Model T."
Did you follow a family tradition when it came to selecting foods for your New Year's celebration? My mother, grandmother and her mother before her always served (of course, made from "scratch") black-eyed peas, collards, roasted pork and corn bread. This was considered a lucky meal in our home and pretty well all over the South.
There are many different ways to cook vegetables, each resulting in their own specific result - whether you're going for the dry heat of an oven or the quickness of the microwave.
A friend and I were just talking about this. Talking about how so many people want to write a book.
I've written before about the value of having a camera on your cell phone. For example, you can use it to take a picture of your hotel room number or parking space so you don't forget either one. (I've been known to forget). Well, I was given another great suggestion this week for having a camera phone - Use it to take a picture of your X-ray! Apparently a number of patients are doing this so they can share it with nurses, therapists, other doctors and even friends.
Question: Can you tell me why my flowering quince never produces fruit, even though it has lots of blooms each year?
The normal way of buying flowering plants tends to produce landscapes with three stages every spring: a glorious flash, a fizzle and wait-till-next-year. It seems to happen almost every year.
Recently I had someone e-mail my office with the following concern: "I've heard that it could cause cancer if you froze water repeatedly in a water bottle."
The line of Big Mouth Burgers at Chili's has long been on the Lunch Guys "Best Burgers" short list. The name captures the spirit of these magnificent monstrosities.
Two rather disturbing things happened during our family Easter last year, both of which I hope can be corrected this year.
I love pumpkins! To me, they symbolize fall and the coming of cool weather.
With many Georgia homeowners wondering if their lawns and landscapes will survive the ongoing drought, folks are looking for a "miracle fix" for their water woes.
The other day, Chloe was trying to get into a chair so she could sit in it "like a big girl." Unfortunately for her, she wasn't as big a girl as she thought she was.
Around this time of year, I begin sending out applications to individuals interested in taking our Georgia Master Gardener classes at the Hall County Extension office.
Last week was a sad one in Hollywood. One day after comedian Robin Williams was found dead, legendary actress Lauren Bacall died.
Last week, we lost a comedic icon. The death of Robin Williams is a bitter ending to a man who delighted millions through entertainment.
I admit it. I was different than most of the other kids.
The word "fire" strikes fear in homeowners. Rightfully so: Between Jan. 1 and Aug. 7, 1,513 people in the U.S. died in house fires, including 57 Georgia residents (www.usfa.fema.gov).
Chloe is at a stage right now where she won't listen to anything I tell her to do.
The following is a true story. Names have been omitted to protect the innocent, as well as the less-than-innocent.
One man or woman's cute and cuddly critter is another person's pest. Or sometimes what begins as a cute animal turns into a pest after it eats your prize-winning roses or caused $1,000 in damage to the garage or attic.
It's that time again. The school year has officially begun, which means early, hurried mornings, school supply lists and dents in your wallet for lunch money. Oh joy!
Gentlemen, masochists that we are, we struggle out into the North Georgia summer heat and humidity to battle with that masculine dragon - the grill.
The time is nigh and fantasy football approaches!
Colors change with the light. This was an issue recently when a friend was having a vintage Porsche repainted, and the shade of ivory just didn't look right.
In the Southern climate, gardeners have a second chance to replant, add new plants and harvest vegetables as fall nears.
Hot wings, dips and other snacks are main parts of the high school, college and professional football season for fans.
