As you know, today is Father's Day - and my challenge of the day is to see if I can make it through 24 hours without once uttering some variation of the phrase, "Go ask your father."

Tech trends: battery life and phones

I've mentioned in my earlier columns about cool apps and helpful tips for your smartphones, but that's all well and good so long as your phone powers on. With a dead battery, your iPhone just became a $200 paperweight.

Tales from the Travis kitchen

A very long time ago, my older daughter called me in distress. She was just recently out of college and trying to expand her cooking skills. Today she is a wonderful cook if you want a pie or cake or cookies or something made in a slow cooker. My grandchildren always request her carrot cake for Christmas.
