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 September 3rd. Click here to read "Search engines are your browser's GPS."

My latest column was published September 2nd. Click here to read "How a broken marriage can lead to broken kids."

In honor of Labor Day, click here to see a clip (Centennial HS in Bakersfield, CA) of the finale from Stephen Schwartz's "Working", a musical that explores the American workday from the Monday morning blues to a working person's pride in having "something to point to."

BTW- Gainesville High School Theatre will be presenting "Working" from October 4-6. When they staged "Working" in 2005, I went to see it three times- it's just phenomenal. Mark your calendars now and don't miss it.

Tons of Fun

From the Times: The Georgia Department of Natural Resources is looking to show visitors that the state parks aren't just a place for fun trips; they can also play an important role in maintaining a healthy lifestyle.With hundreds of miles of hiking, biking and walking trails, state parks can be a fresh-air alternative to trips to the gym. That's why system administrators have organized the Tons of Fun Fitness Challenge. Click here to check it out

Home remedies

With healthcare a pressing issue, prices going up, and cures in short supply, more and more people are turning away from their medicine cabinets and to their pantries and gardens for remedies. And they are experiencing a certain amount of success.

Whether looking to help a stuffy nose or something more serious, the answer can be as close as an arm’s reach away. Click here to look at these 100 healthy remedies that are right in your home.

100 Years of Style in 100 seconds

Has a commercial for a mall ever been this cool? In an advertisement for new shopping center in England, a man and a woman gyrate their way through 100 years of costume changes in 100 seconds — showing off a century of fashion and dance trends along the way. The ad begins in 1911, but stiff Edwardian style soon gives way to everything from flapper dresses to grungy flannel, culminating in 2011 duds. Click here to see.

Patty cake cats

Sorry, but I just couldn't resist sharing this video of cats playing patty-cake featuring voice-overs of their conversation as they play. Click here.

Expectations vs. Reality

Whatcha Eatin'?

If you have a little time and are feeling somewhat adventuresome, try making these homemade Twix bars. It's the dessert that they serve at Spago- minus the edible gold flecks.
