  • The other day I got an e-mail from Nancy Kennedy. That's Nancy B. Kennedy from Hopewell, N.J.

    Years ago, she and I both wrote articles for the same magazine group - I wrote humor stories and she wrote about finance, and readers often got us mixed up. I told her once that I thought about writing a humorous finance article and really confusing things.

    We became acquainted when either the magazines' business office or the IRS mixed up our 1099s.

  • Where are men and women - young and old - who are strong and courageous? Men and women who do not want to be dismayed - shaken by the storms and conflicts of life, but strong enough in character to stand for what God says is right and true? Men and women who know God, believe God and are going to get a grip on God and everything he has for them in this life.

    Twenty years ago, Asbury United Methodist Church could have held most of its services in one of its members' living rooms as the church rarely had more than 10 people at a service.

    Today, the church at 9600 New Columbia Road on the Adair-Taylor county line, is a thriving faith community of more than 220 members. Weekly attendance averages more than 100.

    And on Sunday, the church will host a special service that celebrates "105 years in ministry."

  • Only my daughter, Laura, has the power to get me to eat a raw quail egg. We did so last Thursday night at our favorite sushi restaurant in Charlotte, N.C., where she lives. I was in town for a conference.

    It's been five years since she moved away from home, and I think I've finally, finally, finally (maybe) stopped thinking of her as some wild feral child who needs me hovering over her, guiding her every move, breath, decision and thought.

    She's 25 now, making more money than I am, finishing her fifth year of a two-year college, dating a guy who treats her well.
