A friend of mine owns a bakery and café. Her cupcakes are scrumptious, her Caprese sandwich melts in your mouth. Clients drive miles for one of her macaroons. Her baked goods are legendary; the problem is her facial expressions.
As fathers, we all want our sons to grow up to be loving husbands, involved fathers, and contributing members of society. That doesn’t happen by accident.
The Gwinnett Public Library is not to be left out in the effort to support our veterans. Their upcoming One Book One Community event really lives up to its title with featured speaker U.S. Army veteran, Captain Luis Montalvan and his service dog, Tuesday.
You may be surprised to learn that people sometimes disagree with me. You may be equally surprised that sometimes I see their point in the disagreement. Sometimes I agree with that disagreement.
If you’re a teacher, parent or leader, you want your people to be successful. The question you need to ask yourself is, do they know that?
After 27 years as a professor, not to mention eight years of undergraduate and graduate coursework, I’ve learned a little about what it takes to succeed in college. I’d like to share with today’s students some tips that I wish someone had shared with me 35 years ago.

Sept. 7 is National Grandparents Day. So first off, let me wish a happy day to all my readers who are grandparents or soon-to-be grandparents, like me.
Hollywood, more often than not, gets it wrong about the South in movies and television. When they do get it right, we Southerners are both amazed and appreciative.
I’ll eat leftovers from the same meal for a week. Doesn’t bother me. As long as it’s in the refrigerator, it’s fine. In fact, I love leftovers.
Watching some cheerleaders the other day brought back some mixed memories for me. One, of all the fun I had being a cheerleader and another from my 35th class reunion.
I became interested in elder care when my grandmother died while I was still in college. Even though she suffered from dementia, Grandma and I were very close. We used to joke that she couldn’t remember the names of her seven children, but she always remembered mine.
Lack of Noble Purpose erodes morale at work, and it eats into our lives at home, where people drag themselves through the door at night without an ounce of enthusiasm left for loved ones or fun.
One of my friends called the other. One of my best friends. There was both urgency and distress in her voice.
If you want to create a great company, invent the next big thing, or produce an amazing work of art, keep your ego out of it. Start with noble purpose, find a problem you want to solve, or people you want to help, and pour your talents into something bigger than yourself.
