It's fun to pick on the boys in the office, fun to play music, and fun to talk to you all day at work. Thanks for listening! I grew up in a one-stoplight town in rural Nebraska. My whole family still lives there and I love going back to visit them, but I also love Texas. Barbecue, fajitas, and great live music....it's the place to be. I've lived in Texas for 16 years now. Austin, Dallas, and here. I've worked in radio from the moment I graduated from college. (The University of Nebraska...Go Huskers!) I've been on a hundred stations at one point or another. I just love radio. Other things I love....let's see. Blue ink. Black bores me a bit. I love cheddar cheese and barbecue sauce and anything that the two happen to touch. I fall asleep in almost every movie I attempt to watch I have made it through Eat, Pray, Love and Mr. Wright. I like chick flicks. I have an awesome family and love spending time with them. You'll probably hear me talk about my daughters on the air. They're toddler girls who exhaust me, crack me up, and amaze me because I don't think I was ever that smart. I have two miniature schnauzers too. Thanks for stopping by. Now tell me about you.

A Long Drive to Work Impacts Your Health!

Average commute times in Tyler are between 17 and 30 minutes, according to zipatlas.com.  Those who live right in the center of Tyler have shorter commute times, and those who live further out, especially to the east, tend to sit in the car longer as they make the drive to work.

It turns out, longer commutes can have a serious health impact over time.  This may make you want to move further in.

Most Common Way to Ask a Date to the Prom Involves a Smart Phone

How did your prom date ask you to the big dance?  I remember my classmate Shane sort of nonchalantly turning around at the end of history class and saying, "So ya wanna go to the prom with me?"  I said sure, he said "K," and turned around again, picked up his books and left the room.  We had a lovely time.

Some asks are more memorable than others.

How are most students asked to the prom now?  You might guess technology plays a part.

The Best Seat in the House Is…

It’s almost summer vacation season, and if you’re headed out by plane you’ll want a comfy seat, especially if it’s a long flight.  No one wants to have to park it in a loud, bumpy seat on a flight all the way from Dallas to Hawaii. You may have a great time surfing and sunning yourself once your get to your destination, but it could be tainted by crying babies, a lack of leg room, and noise along the way.

So, what’s the absolute best seat on an airplane? And what’s the worst?

East Texas Offers Many Ghost Towns

What happened to all those rural places in East Texas where early settlers started to build a life, and then somebody else decided the spot where the Tyler loop now sits would be a better place?
Camps became homes, then small school houses joined the homes, then all that was deserted in favor of greener pastures - or should we say more populated areas.  And thus, the Texas ghost towns are born.
We came across an interesting website that lists several ghosts towns right here in Smith County.

Next Friday, May 4 is the second annual GenTX Day, when students across the state spend the day surrounded by people wearing college t-shirts.  You’ll see college t-shirts at the office and at stores and restaurants, and even teachers and staff at schools will trade the business casual clothes for big bold letters and mascot faces, all to support life after high school.  All who wear the gear will be sending the message that a college education is a good investment.  How does it work?
