Here are the suggested New Year resolutions that should cover everyone in some shape or form.
I just need two things for a perfect Christmas… great food and an action movie in which things explode.
After 20 straight days of vacuuming and watching the cat climb the Christmas tree, my mother had reached the end of her rope and said goodbye to real Christmas trees forever.
By Randy Tatano This time of year, the chance of snow on Christmas Day in Alabama is pretty much a long shot. Sure, we’ve had an occasional...
Please, medical professionals, ditch that discomfort word, let us know when things will actually hurt or taste awful, and just be honest about what we’re going to experience.
The next time someone compliments your cooking and you hear, “You should open a restaurant…” Be afraid. Be very afraid.
So when Elon Musk bought Twitter, I decided to rejoin the platform. While I had no idea what he would do to the company, there was a clear indicator that things would change for the better.
There are certain days in our lives so significant that we can recall every little detail years later. Images, words and emotions that are burned into our brains. We remember exactly where we were, what we were doing and what we felt when an important event took place.
The solution to voting issues is an easy one: let’s go back to mechanical voting machines.
If I was granted one wish, I’d want a time machine to go back before technology sucked all the fun and quality out of life.
Back in the day, people thought I had a glamour job as a television reporter, and on occasion, it felt that way.
The convoluted language that is supposed to “inform” voters has gone too far.
Recently my high school had a big reunion. You know, one of those zero-numbered deals.
These days I know I should not be on the road at 8 a.m. or 3 p.m. Because that’s when parents turn into chauffeurs to drop off or pick up their little darlings and turn the local streets into the departure lane at a major airport.
I attended the University of Connecticut, located in the middle-of-nowhere town of Storrs. Which we all referred to as “Snores” since it was a boring place with nothing to do.
As someone who has met and interviewed dozens of politicians in my career, I’m often asked what these people are really like. It’s not too often you get a peek behind the curtain, as many are always in campaign mode.
I did not see Elvis. I did not find out who killed JFK. Nor did I learn the whereabouts of Jimmy Hoffa. It wasn’t one of those near-death experiences
First, before you make any assumptions about where this story is going, please note that I did not attend Auburn or Alabama and don’t watch college football. (I know, sacrilege.) I’m an NFL guy. That said, pretty much everyone I know is a fan of one school or the other.
I’ve been around cops since I was a kid. Right off the bat, we learned police officers were the good guys and that if you did something really bad, you might end up in a horrible place called jail.
When a beautiful woman tells you to, “Take it off, take it all off” I was sold in sixty seconds Of course, no gorgeous woman appeared in the bathroom while I lathered my face with Noxzema. Teenage boys are so gullible when it comes to a pretty face. (So are adult men, but that’s a story for another day.)
About 10 years ago I was one of the producers of a television segment on Elvis, which would feature an interview with his ex-wife, Priscilla, who was returning to Graceland on the anniversary of his passing. While I didn’t know everything about Elvis, I was very familiar with Priscilla from her days on the TV show Dallas.
Back in the day (those of us who are “of a certain age” say that a lot), you could fix electronics. If the TV had a problem, you could pull out the tubes, take them to the neighborhood store that had a tube tester, plug in each one, and find the bad one. Then buy a replacement, pop it in, and you’re back in business watching a picture off the rooftop antenna in spectacular black-and-white. Back in the day you could also build electronics. Which reminds me of the coolest thing I ever did with my Dad.
Snake on a Plane. No, not the movie. And not a real snake. Kenny Stabler.
If you’ve ever been in a position to hire someone, you’ve no doubt had an eye roll moment. I’ve had several. They range from bizarre things on resumes to weird wardrobe choices for an in-person interview.
Gubernatorial candidates Lew Burdette and Lindy Blanchard made a stop in south Alabama this week.
Those of us of a certain age remember when flying was actually fun. I know that seems hard to believe in an era in which you get half-undressed...
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that there is currently a mass exodus from the Northeast to places in the South. While...
