Give your children the gift of (financial) knowledge
It’s almost Father’s Day. If you’re a dad with young children, you can expect some nice homemade cards and maybe even a baseball cap.
But, of course, your greatest reward is spending time with your kids and watching them grow. In return, you can give them a gift – the gift of knowledge.

… that cowboy by her side was only five foot three
So I moved in, I never thought he’d dare to stand his ground
Only to discover that he was sitting down.

Hooked on catfish
River City Roundabout
The promise of a plate loaded with fried catfish, a steaming baked potato, crunchy hushpuppies, and a mess of coleslaw drew me out of the city last Friday to Riverside Catfish House on Highway 41.
The restaurant is far enough along the rolling hills of Lookout Valley that I was able to leave Chattanooga behind, but not so far I became “hangry” on the way. Still, as my two dinner companions and I drew up alongside the unassuming one-story structure, which hugs the highway and is easy to miss, my appetite was growing.

What do Starbucks and Le Cordon Bleu Culinary School in Paris have in common?
Kay's Cooking Corner

No matter which way I leave my neighborhood I have to pass a Starbucks, which almost always calls me to it, and so I have befriended several of the baristas at one particular store. I know most of them by name they know me as well.

One regular client, Saskia Fredericks, said she rarely sees her husband because of his work, and has informed him she needs the cuddling to keep from getting very lonely.”
