  • Listening to a song on the radio can instantly transport you to a summer of your youth. The windows immediately come down in the car and your hair blows in the wind as you drive. It’s that kind of song.

    Throughout music history, songs released in the summer create memories that last a lifetime. There’s something about a goodtime summer song.

    Just like DJ Jazzy Jeff and Fresh Prince crooned, it’s “summer, summer, summertime; time to sit back and unwind.”

  • NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Four months ago, two African-American pastors stood in a hallway of the Southern Baptist Convention’s Nashville headquarters looking at a row of white faces.

  • “Prometheus,” Ridley Scott’s long-awaited prequel to the “Alien” franchise, is, in a word, disappointing.

    This film has as much to do with “Alien” as a slice of bacon has to do with a cow.

  • The term “staycation” is a way of describing a vacation that doesn’t involve traveling out of the country or, by some definitions, out the home environment. Often, it involves day trips.

  • Call me obsessive but the herbs in my garden are in this order from south to north: parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme. I know, pitiful isn’t it?

    But there are more — oregano, dill, chives, spearmint and basil. When I started the garden several years ago, I thought it was just neat and small pots of herbs weren’t terribly expensive.
