OK, Calhoun County beer fans, I need a little help here. I'm working on a piece about the larger-size bottles that became legal in Alabama back on Aug. 1, and I need to know what you've seen for sale in our area. I know I've seen Back 40's Freckle Belly IPA and Sierra Nevada Pale Ale in 22-ounce ...

My first introduction to leadership, what it is, what it isn't, and how it affects people and situations around the world came through several books I read by John Maxwell.  I have read many other authors since then, but a couple of my favorites by John Maxwell are "The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Lea...

Ever get up to leave a room to go get something only to get where you know you were going and forget what it was you went in there for?  Mildly frustrating would be one way I would describe it.  I'm standing there in the room.  I know I'm here to get something, and yet it is as though whatever it...

Generosity. How Generous Are You? by JohnBagwell
Nov 03, 2012 |  0 comments | 44 44 recommendations | email to a friend
I have a feeling that most people, if asked if they were generous or not, would probably give a middle of the road answer.  I believe only a very few people would willingly describe themselves as being miserly.  I also believe that few people would want to ascribe to themselves the title of "Most...
