Latest Columns

My husband, Arthur, and I each write twice-a-month columns for The Times here in Gainesville. His deal with computing and technology issues. Mine deal with whatever strikes my fancy.

Arthur's latest was published on October 30th. Click
here to learn about avoiding eye and back strain while using your computer.

My October 29th column is about Black Dog Syndrome. Click here to read it.


The Humane Society of Northeast Georgia on Ridge Rd. is offering special adoption fees for black adult dogs and puppies adopted through
Sunday, November 14.

Typically $100 per animal, the adoption fee for adult black dogs (6 months and older) will be $50, and the adoption fee for black puppies (6 months and younger) will be $75.

Why? Scroll back up and read the column on Black Dog Syndrome...

And while we're on the subject of DOGS

Americans spend $41 billion annually on their pets. A big chunk of that goes for dog toys. Here's one that doesn't cost a thing and has been a big hit with our Ginger.

Most dogs were originally bred to be workers and even today, they'd prefer to earn their keep (and kibble.) This toy has them working for a reward and they'll love it.

Just take an empty water bottle and cut a small hole in the side. Toss in some dry kibble and fasten on the lid. Have your camera ready when Scooter tries to puzzle out the secret of the magic bottle!

Deck the halls with boughs of...parsley?

I usually try to resist rushing the holidays, but in this case I'll make an exception. Click here to go to to get a FREE mp3 download of Veggie Tales Singing Christmas Tree- all 16 tracks!

Great deal!

This week, Ingles has Kraft Cheese singles, shreds or cubes (6-12 oz) for $2 each. That in itself is a good deal but to get a GREAT deal, click here to print a coupon good for $5 off of the purchase of 5 Kraft cheese and dairy items. That makes those shreds and slices only $1 each...and you can print 2 coupons from each computer. Now that's what I call a GREAT deal!

PLUS, when you redeem your coupon, Kraft donates five meals to the


Family TIES ("Teaching, informing,empowering and supporting today's families") is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping families provide a safe, nurturing and positive environment for their children and teenagers. Their programs seek to educate prenatal parents and parents with children up to age 18. They serve families who are wishing to improve their parenting skills as well as families who are incarcerated or mandated by DFCS or the court system.

You can support Family TIES by getting in on the 50/50 raffle! As part of the yearly Diamonds and Denim fundraiser, we're selling raffle tickets for $5.00 each. At the fundraiser on Nov. 13th (see last week's Next to Newsletter for more about that), one ticket will be drawn- the winner gets HALF of the proceeds for the raffle ticket sales, with the other half going to Family TIES. You don't have to be present to win. You can get your raffle tickets at N2N. Just think- the odds of winning are SO much better than the lottery!

What's for Breakfast?

These are wonderful, fiber rich muffins. They freeze well and are perfect for
on-the-go breakfasts.

3 Cups Fiber One cereal
2 1/2 cups hot water
1 box Krusteaz Fat Free Cranberry Orange Muffin Mix
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup chopped nuts

Soak cereal in hot water for 5 minutes. Drain cranberries from box. Add muffin mix, cranberries, nuts and baking powder. Spoon 1/4 cup of batter (it is VERY thick!) into 24 muffin cups or drop by 1/4 cups like drop cookies on a cookie sheet. Bake at 400 for 20 minutes. If you're using mini muffin tins, reduce baking time to 12 minutes.

If you're on Weight Watchers, each mini muffin is one point.

Wise Words

Always when judging
