Former South African president Nelson Mandela has received much-deserved praise following his death on Dec.5 at the age of 95, and rightly so. South Africa could have sunk into chaos and a bloody civil war with Mandela’s rise to power following 27 years of imprisonment and the end of apartheid. Instead, he preached reconciliation and forgiveness, not vengeance. For that, the world can be grateful.
It was as ugly as a wart hog, but for the 11th time in the past twelve years, 38 of the past 50 and 65 out of 108, the University of Georgia, the oldest state-chartered university in the nation, located in Athens, the Classic City of the South has bested You-Know-Where Institute of Technology for the State Football Championship, 41-34.
The past year, 2013, was the first year for the Georgia Agriculture Tax Exemption (GATE) program. This program offers farmers a sales tax exemption on agricultural equipment and production inputs that they purchase.
From time to time I come across a special hunting story that stands out from others. In today’s world many youngsters never have the opportunity to experience just what is out in the forest, and take part in a long time tradition in the USA.
This is a question I encounter in several different forms. People asking whether they should repair a computer or upgrade a computer or buy a new one. If your computer is broken, when you take it to some places to be repaired they will push you to buy a new one. Others may push you to just repair it no matter what.
If you've watched NBC's Today Show during the past month, you may have noticed that Matt Lauer, Al Roker and Carson Daly are in the process of growing their beards. This is because they are participating in "No Shave November" or the more recently termed "Movember" (the mating of the words mustache and November).
Today, almost all of “real” Christmas trees are grown on tree farms. These farms may sell them to local lots or be a “choose and cut” farm where you can go to select and cut your own fresh tree. If you plan to use a real tree this Christmas season, there are a few things you can do to make the most of it.
When I was a little girl most everyone I knew was poor. Some people had it harder than the rest. For one reason or another they were destined to a life of poverty and deprivation. I knew that Jesus said in the Bible, “The poor you will have with you always.” He must have been talking about a woman that lived up the street from Ma Kendrick.
For many of us, we get excited to begin our Thanksgiving festivities with our families and our friends. We gather for an abundance of food, fun and laughter. Then it leads straight into the preparation of Christmas holidays. We begin buying gifts for our family and friends and get excited preparing our homes and our hearts for what the holiday brings. If we have young children or grandchildren, this time can be so exciting to see the thrills on their faces. For many of us, this time is busy, but exciting!
Knock! Knock! Knock!
A firewall is a way to stop unwanted traffic from getting on your computer network.
For the past year we've discussed many different topics in the medical world. This week I want to look at medical issues from the role of those caring for the patients in the home. November is Family Caregiver Month, so this week we will touch on this extremely important role.
After observing and hearing small children in my many travels I am forced to come to one conclusion. There is a new generation discipline called pacify. Anyone who has been to supermarkets, restaurants or other public places have noticed that children no longer talk, they scream.
I can remember when I was just about seven or eight years old my father would take my brother and I out and pick up tin cans and place them on a dirt bank for targets. I had an older sister but she had no interest in guns and shooting. This would usually be on a Saturday.
Last week, family and friends gathered in the small town of Chattahoochee Hills, south of Atlanta, to celebrate a life well-lived. Our late grandson, Zack Wansley, was honored at the dedication of “Zack’s Glade,” a pristine and picturesque piece of Cochran Mill Park near where he died while training for the Atlanta Marathon in 2008.
Backing up or making a copy of your files is important. What you use for backing them up and where you store them is important.
This month is pancreatic cancer awareness month. While there are many important medical issues to be aware of, I feel this subject truly deserves our attention because of the staggering statistics it possesses.
Livestock projects have been a part of the Georgia 4-H program from the beginning. They are family-oriented projects that involve parents working together with their 4-H member to raise an animal and get it ready for the show ring. Besides being a lot of fun and very rewarding, the livestock projects help to build self-esteem and responsibility in youth.
With home prices rising in most areas of the country, a lot of us are building home equity again. And when equity builds, it’s tempting to tap it. Used wisely, home equity can send your kids to college or launch a business, but there’s a real risk to using home equity loans; they can make you more susceptible to foreclosure.
I've been fingering this small metal thing and thinking about it. I know the original owner; my mother. She kept this, and other small things in tin “Sucrets” boxes. She had boxes for buttons, pins, tiny screws, whatnot.
