Sometimes you need your phone to do more than Instagram your lunch at Taco Bell and channel your Twitter musings. How about an app that could save your life? What would you say to that?
The Carolinas aren't just home to great college and pro football teams. They own one of the best hot sandwiches ever made in America: pulled pork. The cut of meat is usually pork butt, otherwise known as a bone-in shoulder roast. And in the Carolinas, the sauce is typically heavy on the vinegar and spice. Here's my take on this classic American sandwich. I like some ketchup in the sauce, western Carolina-style. Keep in mind that slow-grilling a pork butt takes about 5 hours. But you'll get some damn good pull when it's done!
It's downright spooky what some realtors will do to sell a house.
In 1960 I dressed up like Casper The Friendly Ghost.
In 2013, I'm going as...
Our one-and-only son Cole came home a few weeks ago for his friend Nick's wedding. Since Nick's practically part of our family, Bob and I were thrilled to be attending. It promised to be a fun evening for the two of us considering Cole would be busy with best-man duties. So I bought a dress (thanks for the coupon WHBM!), wore the heels I fell in love with in Paris and took extra care with my makeup.

Perfect when you need some OOMPH, these 15 fabulous finds can amp up your look in no time.
Some people can eat whatever they want and stay slim (think Bob at 20, 30, 40 and our son Cole now). Not me. I've always had to watch myself.
There are times I run across a song I just can't get out of my head (that's great, because it gives the voices a rest). The other night, I stumbled across From a Window Seat by the alt-indie band Dawes and it's been on replay in my head and car ever since.
On second thought, maybe you should just look out for the wave behind you.
The Affordable Care Act ("Obamacare") went into effect two weeks ago and there's still a whole lot about it that needs explaining. No wonder. The bill was 2,409 pages of government-ese and it's doubtful that anyone in Congress read the entire bill before voting for its passage.
I guess the "T" stands for "toilet".
Ok, it's a well-documented fact that I like hunting. I enjoy the opportunity to get outdoors with my friends and do GUY STUFF **pardon me while I scratch myself** with a loaded shotgun in my hands.
I'm not anyone's idea of Ted Nugent (like his music; some of his politics and all of his 70s hair) but I do enjoy dove hunting, quail hunting and the occasional feral hog excursion.
That doesn't mean I'm any good at it. I suck most of the time. That doesn't stop me because I hunt 21st Century style, with all the modern conveniences of food, shelter, central air and heat, and most of all CELLPHONE COVERAGE.
I thought going hunting was an excuse to get away from email, Facebook, ESPN.com and CELLPHONES." To this I would have to answer, "Internets, have we met?"

When I hit 40, my eyesight hit the skids. Years of being hunched over a keyboard (computer and IBM Selectric) left me in the land of reading glasses.
I have been intrigued by skillet lasagnas ever since I saw a recipe for one in a Williams-Sonoma catalog. Such a great way to make the dish, I thought, although I never seemed to give it a try.
They say she was smokin' hot.
My dear friend Linda has always known how to throw a party. But she topped herself recently by planning the ultimate girl's trip to none other than Paris, France to celebrate her birthday.
Bob and I went to New York recently to visit our son Cole. We celebrated his 27th birthday with a round of Crab Cakes at The Palm in Manhattan. But if we'd been home, I would've made Cole's favorite fish fritter from scratch as I've done so many times.
Netflix' new original series, Orange is the New Black, is more than just another edgy drama. It's a shot across the bow of traditional network and cable TV, because it's only available to Netflix subscribers (all 33 million of us).
I think Apple may have ripped off this guy's patent.
