Dogs — especially in the South — are man’s best friend, right? Why then, Chad Stone wants to know, do we so often feed our dogs the human equivalent of junk food for nearly every meal of their lives?

“Americans live under the anarchy of their possessions, a virtual avalanche of clutter…[which] reflects the mind-set of the modern household — overburdened, disorganized and compulsive.”

If a disheveled home is contributing to a scattered mind and an inhospitable environment, it’s time to banish the disorder. While the bulk of the load is on your shoulders, a family-run, American-made company can at least get you properly equipped.
The early onset of warm weather ushers in one of the best times of the year in Nashville. Some call it spring. We call it porch-sittin’ season.
For many, unfortunately, this season will be overlooked for the worries and hurries of the day. Instead give your porch the status it deserves: a relaxing spot for afternoon drinks, late nights with guests or solitary mornings with a good read. And let’s face it, a Southern porch is sorely uninhabitable without a solid rocking chair.
To say that our modern day American culture takes for granted the accessibility of nearly any type of comfort we desire is an understatement. We are far removed from our pioneering ancestors and their well-rounded abilities to be nearly self-sufficient – growing, building and fixing what they needed to live.
