    All right, let’s talk NFL playoffs. As with every season, several teams’ fates are undecided going into Week 17. Among those are perennial playoff teams like the Packers (7-7-1), the Bears (8-7), the Eagles (9-6), and the Cowboys (8-7). There are some very interesting storylines playing out, like the story in the NFC South. 

  • It’s beginning to smell a lot like the New Year

    By Dr. David B. Whitlock

    Mention the smells of Christmas and most people have little trouble ticking off their favorites: the perfume of evergreen, the citrusy smell of fruit in the Christmas stockings, cinnamon spice tea brewing, the aroma of gingerbread cookies and pumpkin bread baking.
    So popular are these smells that they’ve been packaged in Christmas aerosol sprays, candles, and refresher oils.
    Not so with the New Year.

  • More goodies from Santa for Christmas

     Santa was good, real good! Kids got the old man a 22-250 caliber barrel for my Encore Pro Hunter. And, not just my barrel! They got a Bullberry barrel!

    Then, Santa himself got me a Wildfire II predator call. Even though Santa was suffering from “beard envy” he still came through!

    So now I have the gun and the call. Now I just have to learn to use them.
