  • Omelets aren’t as difficult as they look. I’ve been making them for a long time and have enjoyed them for breakfast, lunch and even dinner.
    Fillings and toppings range from meats, vegetables and seafood to cheese and even leftovers.
    Since omelets take no more than a couple minutes to cook, the key is to work quickly while the egg mixture is setting.

  • Perhaps it comes as a result of seeing “Damn Yankees.” Or, maybe it was the way I was moved by viewing “The Ghosts Of Mississippi” a few days later, but all I can see and hear in the Scriptures, especially during Lent, is “heart!”

    On a visit to the Sawnee Mountain Preserve in Cumming, Ga., I was shocked to find many dead bees in the preserve’s observation hive.
    The fallen insects were piled up at the bottom of the display and at the entrance and exit to the hive.
    Bill Dunn, who manages the hive for the center, believed the bees collected nectar from flowers that had been sprayed or dusted with an insecticide and had inadvertently contaminated themselves with it. He expected most of the bees in the hive would die as a result.
