Mama said there’d be days like this

I've never been a big fan of Valentine's Day.

Sometimes, I wish I could be - to be able to get caught up in the romance, the pink and red heart-shaped everything, the cards covered with sugary rhymes professing love.

FY 2012 amended budget passes by unanimous vote

A miracle took place in the House of Representatives last week. For the first time in recorded history, a budget passed without a single dissenting vote on either side of the aisle.

Last January Gov. Nathan Deal conservatively estimated state revenues of $18.3 billion for Fiscal Year 2012.

In order to keep my national certification as a modest and much-beloved columnist, I am required to submit annually a State of the Column message. Thank you for your patience and understanding. Please stand and applaud if you hear something that floats your boat or look bored if you don't. You may be on television.

Landscape work for the month of February

Much going on at Gold Dome

The 2012 Legislative Session is off to a fast start, as lawmakers have already passed several pieces of legislation and met to discuss the governor's budget recommendations.

Baptist leader speaks right from heart

Whew, that was close. I almost became a Baptist the other day. Not just any Baptist, but a (gulp) Southern Baptist.

Let me add here that there have been times when the Rev. Dr. Gil Watson, the world's greatest preacher, has become so weary of trying to save my sorry soul that he would gladly trade me to the Baptists, Presbyterians or even the Islamic Center for the Advancement of Self Pity in return for two altos, a Sunday school teacher and an usher to be named later. Dr. Gil only has these thoughts when I insult some demographic ...

Mama said there’s be days like this …

The Food Network's reigning queen of butter recently announced she has had type 2 diabetes for three years.

The next thing we knew, people were bashing her for hiding it and some even said it was no surprise given the way she loves her fattening fare.

Fertilizer key when growing pecans

A common question I am asked is: Do pecan trees need fertilizer and, if so, when is the best time to apply it?
