Charlotte-based Brewpublik, the beer-curation company (sort of like a beer subscription service), has started adding an option for cooler workspaces to stock something a lot cooler: A beer delivery service.
The Rev. Penny Ellwood, Blue Springs campus pastor, United Methodist Church of the Resurrection: We have a human habit of looking for patterns of three. You hear people say all the time expressions like "three's company" or conversely, "three's a crowd" or "the third time's the charm, "or "bad news always comes in threes."
Q: We promised our 10-year-old daughter that if she got good grades this year we would allow her to get some kind of pet. She is one of those kids who only watches "Nat Geo Wild" and she is crazy for animals. Well, she is finishing out the year now and it looks like she will have very good averages, so now we have to keep our part of the bargain. Our landlord will not allow dogs or cats but said we could get any pet that stays in a cage. We were thinking of a bird or rodent and wondered what you suggest. My wife and I both work so it would have to be something with low maintenance but we want her to be able to assume most of the burden so that it teaches her some responsibility and time-management skills.
Summer is here, and that means longer days, warmer temperatures and - hopefully - more time available to spend with your dog. It also means looking at your pet's daily routine with fresh eyes, and ensuring that the "dog days of summer" are both safe and enjoyable.
WILSON, N.C. - At 80, Camilla Jean Woodard resolved to fight her way through algebra class, learn to operate a computer mouse, crack the thickest book she had ever lifted and finally bring home the prize that had escaped her since age 17: a high school diploma.
Q. I tried your onion remedy on wasp stings. I had three stings: two on my upper lip and one on my hand. I rubbed cut onion on my lip. Since I had two stings there, it hurt more initially. The lip stings had hardly any swelling and only slight discomfort later in the day, but my hand became quite swollen and was very painful. The lip stings were totally gone in about two days, but the one on my hand took over a week to resolve. To me, this underscores the value of putting a cut onion on a sting. Thanks for sharing remedies like this.
I’ve been feeling a little nostalgic lately with the opening of “Finding Dory,” the record-breaking sequel to 2003’s “Finding Nemo.” It doesn’t usually take 13 years for a sequel; many take a lot less. For instance, “The Purge: Anarchy” debuted just 400 days after the original. Many more shouldn’t have been made at all (I’m talking to you, “Human Centipede.”)
