It’s the season for community, and you don’t want to miss it.
By Carole Townsend

The days are getting longer, the weather is warming up, and the air is so thick with humidity that it feels like you could slice it with a knife. Yes, Georgia summers can be brutal but around here, in Gwinnett County, the weather is only half the story at this time of year.

It's a jungle in here
By Carole Townsend

This is not an easy thing to admit, but I have a confession to make. I have been outwitted by a rogue band of fruit flies. They have taken up residence in my kitchen (my countertops have been sans fruit for nearly a week now), and they refuse to leave.

Our Georgia history is rich
By Carole Townsend

We live in a fabulous state, all things considered. The weather is pretty near perfect, if you can overlook the brutally long, hot summers. They beat the brutally long, cold winters in upstate New York, I can tell you that.

Everything in life comes full circle
By Carole Townsend

I remember a saying that I’ve heard for years, something about life coming full circle.  To illustrate the point, so the saying goes, just look at man. He starts his life in diapers and very often, that’s the way he ends up.

It’s not complicated. Who knew?
By Carole Townsend

I believe that there are two kinds of people, those who are obsessed with deep-down sparkling clean, and those who are simply concerned with keeping the house uncluttered.

Some Things Old are New Again

I remember when I was a kid, on any given Saturday morning my parents could say, “Let’s go to the Farmers’ Market,” and off we’d go. I have to be honest; my siblings and I were never as enthusiastic about the market as my parents were, but it was something different.
