{Nourish} Slave to the scale

Posted 11/10/2012 in Columns

This week marks a very special anniversary. One year ago, upon losing 60 pounds the healthy way, through clean eating and plenty of exercise, I conceived the idea to use my continued weight loss journey to help and inspire others struggling with the same thing, and thus {Nourish} was born.

 

 

Annunciations

Posted 11/3/2012 in Columns

Politicians certainly must be on a higher plane than most of us will ever be. How else can you explain their direct line to God, and God's views on so many subjects?

 

{Nourish} Variety, the spice of life

A Stone's throw: Platitudes

Posted 11/3/2012 in Columns

Well, we vote Tuesday. I cannot recall when I have felt more scared of an election. I hope this country votes wisely, because we are at such a low economic state. This country, like others, needs some relief from its problems and burdens.

Posted 11/3/2012 in Columns

Ghost stories for the new millennium

I looove Halloween. The cooler temps, mysterious shadows and, best of all, the chance to wear a costume. Anyone who has seen me this week knows that I started costuming on Friday.

 

 

{Nourish} The most annoying thing + the silver lining

Posted 10/27/2012 in Columns

I'm a pretty positive, optimistic person. I like to look on the bright side of life through rose-tinted glasses. I focus on the good and pretty much just ignore the bad.

 

 

Being beautiful: Remember to go trick-or-treating for yourself, too

When I was a young'un, it was the most magical time when I got all dressed up in costume and went door-to-door knocking for treats.

 

 

Adele Elliott: The zombie apocalypse

Posted 10/20/2012 in Columns

We have read much news lately about the "Zombie Apocalypse" that is about to invade our country on a rampage of brain-eating terror. I haven't seen any zombies stumbling down Columbus' Fifth Street or attending football games in Starkvegas. But the word is that they are on their way.

 

 

{Nourish} Love yourself, right now

Posted 10/20/2012 in Columns

I'm a girl's girl. A supporter, encourager and cheerleader of other women doing positive things.

 

 

Being beautiful: Hair potions from your very own cauldron

It's almost time for Halloween, so why not try some homemade potions concocted in your very own cauldron without a witch in sight?

 

 

A Stone's throw: Why?

Posted 10/20/2012 in Columns

Nobody wants to hear about your trip, so I shall not tell you about mine. I would, however, like to touch on one aspect of it for the reason you will see.

 

 

Jeff Wilson: Make the most of fall planting

Salutations in stone: A Canadian in Columbus shares an Inuit tradition

Posted 10/17/2012 in Columns

Ross Whitwam can't resist a pile of rubble. With stones, bits of brick and chunks of concrete, the Mississippi University for Women biology professor proves that one man's debris is another man's medium.

 

David Creel: Broaching an embarrassing topic to solve a pesky problem

Posted 10/13/2012 in Columns

The state fair is in Jackson with all the joys of the season, from candied apples to deep-fried Oreos, but unfortunately I hear tell of another not so joyous seasonal visitor ... lice.

 

 

Adele Elliott: Columbus has been invaded by bats! Oh, my!

Posted 10/13/2012 in Columns

If this were the beginning of a scary movie that may be a terrible thing. Who can forget the terror that sweet little birds unleashed on a small California town in "The Birds"? Alfred Hitchcock's 1963 movie made us suspicious of everything from canaries to birds of prey. (I'll always remember the image of Suzanne Pleshette, as the grammar school teacher, lying dead and bloody on the school's front steps.)

 

A Columbus teen combines enterprise with her love for horses

Posted 10/6/2012 in Columns

Kadee was wearing cowboy boots that weren't just for show. Those cowboy boots knew their way around a horse. Her jeans were tucked into her boots; she looked rangy and strong.
