‘Viagra for Women’ Getting Closer, Currently in Trials

Mad scientists have been hard at work trying to develop a sex-drive-enhancement drug for women ever since those wily old coots emerged nearly 15 years ago with a little blue pill called Viagra.

To Burn Off the Candy Corn, The Workout is HOW Long?

One of those evil yet delicious creations around the office this time of year is the candy corn/dry roasted peanut mixture. Oh my. Do you have it at your desk? Yum! Whoever started it was a borderline genius. It's sweet and salty. It's crunchy and chewy. It's got all the culinary opposites that your mouth tells you it needs and of course, does not. But I digress.

If you've popped some handfuls of candy corn today or this Halloween season, how long does it take to burn it off? We have some working out to do. I'll give you a hint. To burn off one handful of candy corn - just ONE handful - we've got to walk longer than 30 minutes. Oh dear.

Candy Corn Tops List Of Most Popular Halloween Candy

Today, October 30th, is National Candy Corn Day and it just happens to top the list of the most popular candy for Halloween.

It also happens to be one of my favorite Halloween candies, however, my wife found a variation of this popular candy in the store the other day that's become one of my faves, taffy candy corn.

Here’s How East Texans Can Help Those Affected By Hurricane Sandy

The weather in Tyler is just fine, so it's hard to imagine exactly how bad it is right now on the East Coast as Hurricane Sandy makes her way into New York and New Jersey. There are blizzard warnings in places like West Virginia, because Sandy is mixing with a winter storm there, and meteorologists say that's the first time in history a storm like that has been created - hurricane meets winter storm. And we look out the window and see nothing of the sort. Wanna help those who need it?

The American Red Cross says there are blood drives up and down the Eastern Seaboard that are being cancelled because of Hurricane Sandy, and they're advising those of us in areas that are unaffected by the hurricane to donate if we're able.
