Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow…..

Today is the first real snowfall of the season, down in the valleys anyway.  We had a little over the weekend and kids were playing and building snowmen and it’s really beginning to feel like the holidays.  It’s funny how just a little snow can do that.  Also, most schools are closed today.  My son…Continue Reading

What men and women spend on gifts

A new survey says women will spend, on average, $170 for holiday gifts for their significant other — but expect gifts worth $250. Men, on the other hand, say they’ll spend $90 on gifts for their partner — but expect to get something worth $200. Clearly, the math isn’t working here and everyone should be…Continue Reading

What’s Your Holiday Decorating Policy?

All of my holiday decorations are up on the outside of my house. My neighbor saw me doing it the day after Thanksgiving and said he doesn’t decorate till its December. I’d say only half the homes in my neighborhood are decorated right now. And it might stay that way….but some will probably put them…Continue Reading

Is this a stupid idea or what?

This is in the K-Mart Black Friday flyer. Is it just me, or is the most ridiculous kid’s toy you’ve seen? Why would you want to buy your child his very own assault / sniper rifle? I know that it’s not real, but give me a break!! Especially in light of the recent episodes of…Continue Reading

Is it too early for Christmas music?

I love music.  All music.  I’ve always enjoyed listening to music, even Christmas music.  But at Christmas time, not early November.  I’m just not ready yet.  I know there are a lot of people that agree with me.  There are also a lot of people that don’t.  I guess it’s a matter of what you…Continue Reading

$17 Million for a watch?

A famous Rolex watch once owned by actor Paul Newman was just auctioned off, and someone bought it for $17.8 million … making it the most expensive wristwatch ever sold at auction. To be clear … This is not the most expensive watch ever sold. Just the most expensive WRIST-watch. A 1933 pocket watch holds…Continue Reading

Sports Fans Say “We”

Have you noticed that when you are talking about your favorite team, you say “we”, like “we” are actually part of that team.  If you were talking about watching the Price is Right on TV, you wouldn’t say “we gave away a huge prize today”.  But sports fans tend to insert themselves into the success…Continue Reading

Lost in a corn maze….

When I was a kid I got lost at Story Town.  You know it as the Great Escape now, so I’m showing my age.  We didn’t have cell phones or anything so my mom told me if we ever got separated, just stay where I was and she would come find me.  I sat down…Continue Reading

Tragedy in Las Vegas

We found out about what happened in Vegas on Monday morning.  We woke up to find out that a man decided to take the lives of innocent people who were enjoying a concert.  Two days later, I still don’t know what to say.  I don’t understand a lot of things these days….and this is one…Continue Reading
