I have never been more cold in my life than when I’m standing in the full body cryotherapy chamber.

Laughter is not taught. It is part of us from birth. Within a few months, long before they can talk, babies laugh. It is contagious.

For many, Fall is the time to pick your favorite team and watch some football! But for me, as a film enthusiast, Fall is when I check out the new crop of TV shows set to premier!

Owning shares of stock or stock funds might increase the value of your portfolio in one of two fundamental ways: capital appreciation (i.e., price increases) and dividend payments. Of the two, capital appreciation carries the greatest potential for return, but it also carries the greatest potential for loss. And any gains or losses are only reaped when you sell your shares.

Do you like the direction in which the country seems to be heading? Are you pleased with Congress? How do you feel about the work of the President, his accomplishments, his words, his position on the world stage, his demeanor, his ability to get things done, the tweeting?

We in the south are all about our “sweet tea.” The English are famous for their afternoon tea. Regardless of how you drink your tea or what part of the world you come from, your tea comes from one plant, the Camellia sinensis and it originates in Asia.

We will soon celebrate Labor Day, and while that is usually a sign we should soon welcome Fall the temperatures outside are not reflecting that. I hope you have a safe, and cool, Labor Day weekend with friends and family.

This column marks the 100th edition of “Mysteries At Your Museum.” We’ll celebrate this by giving a tip of the hat to the founder of our community, Jackson Smith. Although his first name is Jackson, that’s not where our city’s name came from!

The Mediterranean Diet is recognized as one of the best Health promoting eating plans. Studies have consistently demonstrated that this way of eating reduces risk of heart disease, diabetes and obesity. One of the principal ingredients in the Med Diet is olive oil. Unfortunately, good olive oil is hard to find in this part of the world. Oh, there are plenty of choices in the grocery store but, finding a high-quality oil is all about knowing what to look for.

While I look for any reason to visit the local movie theater, it seems as though the main bulk of the higher profile films were pushed out at the start of the season, and that was that.

A farmer came upon a bizarre scene. There was a man in one of his fields who was holding onto an electric fence with his left hand and holding onto another man with his right hand.

Like most Americans I have been reflecting on the life and legacy of John McCain since his death.

This is a column I knew I would write. I both loathe and am inspired to complete the task.

Sometimes, we all need reminders. Reminders that everything's going to be OK. Reminders that everyone has the same problems. Reminders that we're all in this together. And reminders to enjoy life and all of its pleasures.

I remember when I first received my Crohn’s disease diagnosis in 2010. I was very, very sick, and some other things in my life were not going well.

Sleep has always been a huge struggle for me. Now, I know, sleep is important.

Political strategists and commentators make a living by looking ahead. Both earn their money, ulcers and vices by anticipating pitfalls and executing plans which will hopefully motivate voters to go to the polls

It’s not often a museum, particularly one whose first name is Vanishing, gets out ahead of story, but that’s exactly what has happened. It was last year when we wrote about a tooth of a Megalodon Shark that is still on display in the museum. We wrote about the tremendous size of this shark, that it was the largest creature ever known to live on our planet, and provided estimates of its size and killing capacity. We even provided the basis for which one might be alive.
