Time to Give Thanks and work to serve others

Wednesday, November 25, 2015 6:35 a.m.

On this Thanksgiving eve, I was asked a profound question - what can we do to stop terrorism? On the smallest scale, it starts in our very homes, a place where we can have influence. I ache for the parents of the misguided youth seeking to belong and have a cause making them vulnerable to seek out the evil (usually escaping from something). Mental …

Sunday, November 22, 2015 5:16 a.m.

Another year has almost gone by. What a year! The rain, the floods.

This week I started seeing tents going up in parking lots and people wearing Christmas hats, so I figured it was …

Drivin’ and Chooglin #14

Monday, November 16, 2015 3:37 p.m.

In an admittedly strange act of deference to the cult film “This is Spinal Tap,” I have two copies of “Led Zeppelin IV” in my CD collection. One is for normal, everyday use. The other sits unwrapped in its original, plastic wrapping. Odd perhaps at first, but hopefully slightly amusing with a touch of explanation. …

Horticulture Hotline - Yes, you can still winterize your turf

Sunday, November 15, 2015 6:55 a.m.

Well, I guess all the rain is helping to flush out the salt water from all the flooding; however, there is still some flooding of salt water at high tide because of all the rain. Crazy weather. If I lived in a cave without a way to see the outdoors and strictly based my predictions of what is going on outside by what the three Possum Stores were …

Aaahhhh. That’s my sigh of relief because I will no longer have to listen to commercials for mayoral candidates, at least not for four years. All those placards by the side of the road will come down... eventually. Another election has passed. Of course we still have a long, drawn-out presidential election to make it through.

Tuesday, October 27, 2015 12:24 p.m.

I was in college in Charlotte when my sister called and asked if I would come down to Charleston and babysit while she and her husband went away for the weekend.

Horticulture Hotline - Be sure your home is protected from termites and moisture issues.

Sunday, October 25, 2015 7:33 a.m.

I don’t know if it is because Possum’s sells to pest management professional companies and I have heard the horror stories about termites, bedbugs, rats, fleas, mosquitoes, spiders and roaches from the technicians that battle them, or it is all the seminars I have attended and trade magazine articles I have read about these insects; …
