Unwanted houseguest

Every fall I will receive calls from homeowners with the problem of squirrels in the attic. At first the person may think there is a rat chewing on the inside of the attic, but after days of hearing sounds, they discover the problem is squirrels.

A squirrel is really not a rat, but once squirrels begin to live and play in your attic, it can be as bad as any rat. Squirrels in the attic will not only keep you up at night, they can also cause damage to your home by eating holes in walls and wires.

Who cares what Moore thinks about Georgia?

In case you were rearranging your sock drawer and missed the big announcement, filmmaker Michael Moore, who is about as relevant as a female appendage on a boar hog, is asking "all Americans with a conscience to shun anything and everything to do with the murderous state of Georgia."

I can hear the shudders from Aragon to Zebulon.

Should we tax the rich more, not just income but wealth too?

Love, hate relationship

What can you say about collards? You either hate or love collards. My wife of 26 years and I have most things in common; however, my love of collards is not one. Leafy greens, such as turnips, mustard, collards, kale and spinach are cool season crops. They should be grown in early spring and fall for maximum yields.

Kale and spinach can withstand temperatures into the upper teens. The other greens may withstand light to medium frost. As a matter of fact, some people prefer a light frost on collards before they are harvested.
