I am coming to you today from Tiberius, on the Sea of Galilee., and what a week I am having. Remember when you used to write postcards from the beach that would get home before you did? Sure you do. They all read, “Having a great time; wish you were here. Well, I am having a great time, and I do wish you were here. I wish everyone could be here in the land where Jesus walked and taught and performed miracles.
I have been thinking about my father a lot lately. We buried him 27 years ago this week.
It has become a common question. How do snow and ice know where I-20 is? And where did the snow stop falling before they built I-20?
Andy Warhol predicted that in the future, everyone would get his — or her — 15 minutes of fame. Another way of putting it might be that every dog will have his day. My friend, Jesse Kenney, had his two weeks ago at the Georgia-Auburn basketball game.

I don’t want to hear about Home Depot increasing the prices of plywood and generators after a storm until somebody does something about the price of a dozen roses being jacked up about 400 percent in the middle of February every year.
In case you have been wondering whatever happened to Mike Bobo, so have I — so I called him this week to catch up on how the former UGA offensive coordinator has been doing since signing a contract two days before Christmas to become the head coach of the Colorado State Rams in Fort Collins, Colo.. In a word, Mike Bobo has been busy.
I feel compelled today to share something I have never revealed in the newspaper. I have alluded to it in my books and have included it in oral testimony on numerous occasions, but never shared the information with the many readers who may have never had the opportunity — or desire — to hear me in person or read my books.
