|Saints win again - even with Barbara on 'injured reserve'
January 17, 2007 at 12:13 pm
Editor’s note: In a December issue, Barbara Munson declared herself “a jinx” to the New Orleans Saints after realizing they lose when she watches them on TV, and win when she doesn’t. This week, she tells what it was like to see their playoff game with the Philadelphia Eagles after the fact - on videotape.

I sit here bleary-eyed, achy, and exhausted. No, I don't have the flu, I have Saints fever.
|Love that lifestyles story
January 10, 2007 at 3:59 pm
Dear Editor: The story in your Lifestyles section titled I lost 82-lbs and feel great was very informative and inspirational for me. I am overweight and have been considering gastric bypass surgery for quite some time now.

January 10, 2007 at 3:09 pm

|Put down the phone and drive!
January 10, 2007 at 2:21 pm
I've often said that I'd like a Sherman tank and two hours with no state troopers in sight to clean up the streets of the city. I don't really have road rage, but seeing what passes for driving these days makes me kind of understand it.

The other day I was talking with my daughter, and in the course of the conversation I mentioned that microwave ovens weren't around when we were growing up, that I didn't get my first microwave until after I was married. I used to work for a wholesaler, and microwaves cost about $1000 each.
|REAL REASON the Saints keep winning
December 27, 2006 at 1:35 pm
The Saints have really made a comeback this year, impressing people across the country and thrilling the locals. Credit for this comeback has been attributed to Sean Payton, Drew Brees, Marques Colston, and a multitude of others, but I'd like to claim a little bit of it for myself.
|Christmas cards are wonderful but spare me the ‘newsletters’
December 20, 2006 at 1:27 pm
Although it’s a lot of work, I love sending out cards, and I love receiving them. I love them all – the religious ones, the funny ones, the cutesy ones, and I especially love the ones with family photos included, but please, whatever you do, do not send me one of those dreaded Christmas newsletters.
|Sweet potatoes from man who grew them
December 13, 2006 at 1:51 pm
I love Saturday mornings at the local farmers' market. I like finding cabbages that are bigger than human heads, and buying sweet potatoes and peppers from the man who grew them. I can't pass up the local wine or the goat milk soap, and I love browsing through the fresh cheeses, sausages, and pastries.

The true story of Santa Claus begins with a very real person - Nicholas - who was born during the third century in the village of Patara.

|The St. Rose library is so good they ought to open it more often
December 06, 2006 at 2:35 pm
I've been an avid reader, a book collector, and a big fan of libraries for as long as I can remember. I enrolled in the summer reading program every year as a kid, I enrolled my daughter when she was a toddler, and I continue to use the local libraries for various reasons. When my computer crashed, the library's computers allowed me to check my e-mail. When I needed to do research, I used the library's subscription to the expensive genealogy website. I continually borrow books, I belong to one of the book discussion groups, and I've even been known to use a meeting room from time to time.
