It's officially summertime, and in Georgia that means sweltering heat, afternoon thunder showers, snakes and bugs. Insects, critters, varmints, whatever you choose to call them, they outnumber us two-legged varmints in the summer by thousands to one, probably more.

Ever notice how people who come here for one reason oranother, never leave? I've heard jokes about it all my life, but I don't think I really understood why it happens until I had a family of my own.

A couple of weeks ago, I had the pleasure of traveling to South Carolina to talk to several groups who had invited me to do so. Often, I'm invited to talk to groups about the wellness of the family and domestic violence. More often, however, I'm invited to talk to folks about one or more of my books.
