The most important meal of the day

I'm not what most people would call a "morning person." I'm not cheerful and talkative in the mornings. I like to sleep as late as I possibly can before waking up to get ready for the day. When I was in college and my friend, Elena, had to share my room for three months one summer, I made a rule about mornings: do not talk to me until after 11 a.m.

Columbia to Colombia -- a digital journey

Last week, I took a trip to Colombia, South America, with my son, J.P., a senior at the University of South Carolina (USC) in Columbia, S.C. In addition to being a great father-son trip that we will both long remember, a number of things happened along the way that reminded me of how the Internet and new technologies are changing the world -- and how we in South Carolina need to understand this new and changing world if we don't want to be left behind.

Moment of Nature - Aug. 23, 2013

"Out of sight, out of mind" applies very well to the root systems of trees. The parts of a tree within the upper portions of soil are vital to tree health, but hidden from the human eye. The causes of root damage are many, the effects are significant and treatment options are limited.

Wedding memories of a lifetime

I have been to several weddings in my day and I'm very excited because I'll be going to another at the end of September. Of course, I'm excited to see two friends join their lives and these two are perfectly suited for each other and very much in love.
