  • Are you proud of your city?

    Trash. It's everywhere. From once pristine waters and forested lands to rural roads and city streets, it blights what once were beautiful places.
    This past weekend, as I made my way back from grandbaby-time in North Georgia, I spied bright yellow objects from miles away along a narrow stretch of road in Putnam County.
    As I got closer, I realized what I had seen were 32-gallon trash bags. Since they weren't there when I went up Friday, I surmised there had been a cleanup Saturday and thought, "How nice this community has come together to take care of where they live."

  • Neti pot? I must decline, thank you

    Did your mother ever tell you to put nothing in your ear smaller than your elbow? Mine did. Of course it didn't make much sense as a child because obviously an elbow is a pretty big thing to try to get into the tiny ear canal. But as I aged, I got it. Keep objects out of your ear. Period.

    The same goes for your nose. Who doesn't have a story to tell about someone they know (maybe even yourself) who wedged a crayon, or if you were my late Aunt Irene, a bean, up in a nostril?
