Oprah Brings Back “Favorite Things”

Each year around Thanksgiving on her talk show, Oprah passed out gift after gift on the "Favorite Things" episode and sent the audience into a complete frenzy. For us at home, it was an opportunity to get some great gift ideas, and perhaps to be completely jealous of those lucky audience members who would need a mid-sized truck to haul all of their new loot home.

Well guess what! Oprah may not have the talk show anymore, but she does have a network, and she's bringing back the Favorite Things show. And we have a chance to win without leaving the house.

Do You Have Firefighter Skills? Test Them in Tyler Next Week

Brookshire's Firefighter Combat Challenge is coming up Oct. 12 to 13 in Tyler, and it will give us a chance to see how we measure up to those beefy firefighting guys. We know there are plenty of in-shape gals that keep us safe from fires too and we appreciate it. They get a workout!

I know for one, I am not good at carrying a heavy fire hose any distance. I get mad when the garden hose gets a kink and won't untangle. Think you can beat the best?

Halloween is Scary — Oh, That’s the Point!

My spouse and I have been together for 14 years, and at points along the way I've mentioned not being particularly fond of the scary parts of Halloween. So by now it should be known right?

I like the cute parts of Halloween! Like the cute, cuddlely kid costumes and the nice, harmless pumpkins.

It was a big mistake letting the spouse take the kids shopping for Halloween decorations.

Texas Loves Its Frito Pie

I have to admit, I didn't try the delicacy that is Frito pie until I moved to Texas. Growing up in Nebraska we sometimes mixed chili, cheese, and saltine crackers together, but the genius of replacing the Saltines with Fritos just didn't occur to us.

Texans are onto something! Frito Pie is delicious, and who cares how fattening.

We Texans broke a Guiness World Record on Monday with a Frito Pie that weighed over a thousand pounds. Some states might be ashamed, but in Texas its a badge we wear proudly. We just may need a Tums to go with our badge.

Tyler Kids Get Free Museum Passes

Curious kids love to look at things and check things out, and parents love it when those things are free. This sounds like win-win.

Rain Cuts East Texas Fair Short

The risk was just too great, so organizers made the decision to shut down the rides and close the gates to the East Texas State Fair early.

The fair had 43,400 people in attendance on Friday and the midway actually broke a record for the amount of money brought in.

It could have been a record-setting weekend perhaps, but organizers called it quits and cancelled the Sunday evening concert.

Dodge Ball Comes to Tyler

Dodge ball has always been fun, but Ben Stiller gave it a popularity boost with the movie that came out in 2004. For awhile there, everyone was yelling out "Dodge ball!" randomly. Now that just makes you seem weird, but the movie is still worth the rental.

Next Saturday, there's a Dodge ball tournament coming to Tyler.

Celebrity’s Face Carved into East Texas Field

It can’t be easy carving a face into a corn field. How in the world do they do that? Walking through the maze, you probably can’t tell all the paths are making a face or that you’re walking through an eyeball, but from the air it looks pretty cool.
