Dungeons & Dragons players master the game

The store recently moved to a larger space to accommodate more strategy and role-playing games. Owner Jason Lee said the idea is great for parents looking to move their kids away from video games and into strategic games. He compared the critical thinking level to the game of chess.

Don’t toss that Christmas tree — recycle it

I would stretch out the Christmas season as long as possible if I could. Instead of the "Twelve Days of Christmas," I would opt for the "Twelve Months of Christmas!" I love the lights, the decorations, the music and the wonderful feelings of cheerfulness at Christmas. People are nicer and friendlier during the holidays. I do get a little sad when I have to take the decorations down. But when it is time to do so, it means that it is also time for Bring One for the Chipper!

It’s nice to savor the sights, smells and sounds of Christmas

The weeks leading up to Christmas seemed to be filled with news reports of toys being recalled because they contain parts coated with lead-based paint. I told someone the other day that we never had to worry about that when we were growing up because the pine cones we used for baseballs and the limbs we used for bats were not painted. We used daddy's good plow lines for jumping rope and they also were paint-free.

Wild turkey hunt led to tragedy

Turkey platters abound on the top shelf in my kitchen. There are all kinds: tin, white glass, clear glass, colored china and thick plastic. Some may be alike, but most have different scenes with a large, colorful turkey in the center. I think I have at least 30. I just cannot help myself when I see a pretty one that is cheap and colorful.

Retire 'Expendables' if recent episode is all they can do

"The Expendables 3," now in theaters, continues the franchise featuring well-known action-movie icons of the 1980s and 1990s in an attempt to recapture their glory days. I thought the first movie was average, the second movie was actually better-than-average, but the third movie falls by the wayside.
