One of my elementary school teachers used to wear her glasses on a chain around her neck. When she needed to read something to us, she put her glasses on. When she stood in front of the class, she took them off and let them hang there. I didn't understand, until I was older, why she needed to have her glasses on a chain. She did it so she didn't have to spend half the ...
My watch disappeared recently without a trace. I looked down at my wrist to see what time it was, but my watch wasn't there.
I've been thinking a lot about full-service gasoline stations recently. If you're much younger than I am, you probably have no idea what I'm talking about.
Every week, I get together with a group of friends at a local restaurant to play trivia. A few weeks ago, one of the categories was geography.
In the interest of full disclosure, I admit without shame that I'm pretty fanatical when it comes to college football and the University of Georgia.
Helen, my GPS lady, and I have been getting along very well since we've been together. She does a great job of helping get wherever I need to go, and I enjoy using the voice controls to have her change the radio station or turn on the heater.
Today is Super Bowl Sunday, and you know what that means. A bloated, multihour pregame show packed with mindless analysis and an interview with President Barack Obama by Bill O'Reilly, a star-studded halftime show that features some of the hottest names in entertainment and an unprecedented commercial blitz that costs north of $3 million per spot. And, squeezed in there somewhere is an actual football game. This year's actual football game - officially it's Super Bowl ...
It seems impossible that it was 25 years ago that the space shuttle Challenger exploded just 73 seconds after liftoff.
It's heartening to see that some politicians and some members of the media are vowing to ease up on the heated rhetoric that seems to accompany any discussions we have about the great issues of the day.
Sixty-four days until spring. I know this. I counted. I'm not sure exactly what happened. I came home Sunday from a trip to Atlanta. I was living in Georgia. I went to sleep and woke up in Syracuse. Dorothy Gale didn't have it so bad. Yes, her house landed on the Wicked Witch of the East. But at least Munchkinland was sunny and warm. Actually, I know the weather in Syracuse is much worse than ...
Earlier this week, when Gov.-elect Nathan Deal and his wife, Sandra, moved into the governor's mansion, our reporter interviewed the mansion's executive chef to find out what she expected from the house's new residents.
My good friend and former colleague, Harris Blackwood, has gone and gotten himself a government job.
The Census Bureau began releasing the first sets of data for the 2010 count last week, and, I'm not ashamed to admit, I was excited to see the results.
Somewhere along the way, it seems like Christmas went wrong. Maybe it's just because I've gotten older. Christmas for children is a magical time, filled with excitement and anticipation. I remember many Christmas Eves when I couldn't fall asleep because I was so excited to see what Santa had brought. For adults, there are only so many golf shirts or ties we can really need, so I don't have much trouble sleeping on Christmas Eve ...
Like a lot of you, I find myself constantly fighting the battle of the bulge. I, quite literally, get too big for my britches, so I look for ways to cut calories and become more active.
Mere minutes after a teenage terrorist had been captured, Bostonians poured into the streets and cheered – cheered! – the police and firefighters who had ended the terror.
The government has been getting its grubby little paws into your paycheck every two weeks for the last year, and now it's ready for you to give more.
I often get asked how Glory, the black and white springer spaniel who lives at my house, and I got together.
I sometimes have a hard time sleeping, so I do what a lot of people suffering from insomnia do. I turn on the TV.
