Somewhere between February and March, an ‘Ant Realtor’ must have held Open House in my kitchen and bathroom.

Happy Memorial Day, Mr. President

Ever since his monumental speech to the Coast Guard Academy Cadets about climate change, I have wanted to thank the President of the United States for helping me see the error of my ways.

A few tips Bruce should know
Posted: May 08, 2015 - 11:10 am

First of all, I would like to apologize for my recent attempts at becoming a ‘serious columnist.’ To put it bluntly, I stink at it.

The force is not with me

I’m convinced that up until a few years ago, I was one of the few southerners that had never visited the Smokey Mountains.

Taking the blame
Posted: May 05, 2015 - 8:14 am

One of the better new TV series I’ve seen in a while came to an end Sunday night, capping what was a roller coaster ride of mysterious twists and turns that kept viewers guessing. The show, “Secrets and Lies,” was an ABC crime drama, and after watching the thrilling finale, I hated to see it come to an end. Though the storyline was fictional, the situation was realistic enough to be believable, and the superb acting made it even more so. I could go on and on about how good the show was, but my focus today will be on the concept of sacrifice as it relates to the show’s finale.

Politically correct or not?

What happened to the days when your mother could freeze you in your tracks with just one look, or your daddy could say, ‘just wait ‘till we get home,’ and fill you with dread for an entire day?

Not all apps are useful
Posted: April 28, 2015 - 8:12 am

A new show debuted on the Game Show Network last week for a five-day premiere event. The show, “Lie Detectors,” featured a panel of three comedians tasked with describing something for an audience of contestants. The things being described ranged from celebrity statements on Twitter to smartphone apps to infomercial products, and audience members had to decipher which one of the three comedians was telling the truth. This proved difficult at times, but none more so than when three apps were being described during last Friday’s episode.
