Birding bug bites

I guess I am a glutton for punishment. With the temperature still hovering around 90 degrees, I spent two and a half hours in my sweat lodge of a photo blind in attempt to document the comings and goings of my now four painted buntings yesterday. Despite their beauty and character, my focus was lured elsewhere. Some 10 feet away off to my left sits my lone bluebird box with its four nestlings.

Prepare students for the world

It is a fact: Students in Georgia and the nation do not measure up to their peers in other countries known to provide a world-class education. While the debate continues over who's to blame and policy-makers pay lip service to preparing students for the 21st century - here for almost a decade already - the U.S. education system muddles on as a 19th-century model.

Humor and respect

Aging – some do it more gracefully than others…but we all face the many challenges of growing old. Some say aging is a mental state. You know these folks; they are the people that say, "I'm not getting older I'm getting better" or "You're only as old as you feel." I like this positive way of thinking. Today I feel about 93.

Attitude adjustment

As gas prices have continued to climb they seem no longer to have the ability to shock us. Instead, we note each hike in the cost of a gallon of gas with what appears to be a mixture of morbid fascination and grim helplessness, as if we've known all along another shoe is about to drop, and then another shoe and another.

Notes on bringing up a birder

Our wait is finally over. Two weeks ago our precious baby girl was born. No reason now to envy all the new parents in the yard. We now have our own little nestling. I immediately begin to think about all of my new responsibilities as a parent as well as all of the new and exciting things I want to show her and teach her.

It's a good think to know your numbers

My good friend stopped by my office the other day, somewhat surprising me with his visit. He looked a little perplexed and indicated to me he had just found out that he had high blood pressure.You should know that my friend is in relatively good shape. He's slightly younger than me and stays very active; and he recently lost about 10 pounds by way of good dieting and exercise. I asked him how he discovered that his blood pressure was high. He said he had it taken at the dentist's office just prior to a procedure he ...

Tell me what you want to see

As a child who wanted nothing more than to grow up and become a journalist, I used to write stories for and draw out my own homemade "newspapers" to distribute to my family on Sunday mornings at breakfast. I tried to design my publications based on what I thought each of my family members might want to read. Dad's "newspaper" was about sports, and my younger sister's often featured reports on Strawberry Shortcake and her social circle.
