Do you have a problem with foggy windows?

Foggy windows are caused by excess moisture between window panes in insulated glass units (IGUs).

Chattacon 36 will take place Jan. 21-23 in Chattanooga, Tenn. and in addition to a wide variety of sci-fi and fantasy authors and artists, Tymbral, a Christian band made up of area residents, will also be in attendance. The connection was made because Ernie Saylor, lead guitarist for Tymbral, is also an antiquarian book collector doing a class on the history of science fiction at the convention.

“I asked them if they needed a band and told the organizers we might be willing to play,” Saylor said. Tymbral submitted a CD of their music and the organizers liked what they heard. Read More»

Earlier this year, Will Garner, 9, a student at Braelinn Elementary School with cerebral palsy, had to undergo major hip and foot reconstruction surgery. The recovery was long, nearly six months, and painful. Will’s physical therapists needed to set goals for him, both short ones to get him through each day’s therapy sessions, and a long one to work towards. The long term goal would show Will, and his family, just how far he had come in a short period of time. On Nov. 6, Will would walk the Strong Legs Run in Atlanta, a 2K race, in his walker.
