The Polar Express To Roll Through East Texas

A couple of weeks ago we were at a friends house and I ended up watching "The Polar Express" starring Tom Hanks with one of their small children, it's a movie I've seen many times and this time I got sucked into watching the entire thing that evening and you know, it never gets old! If you've never seen it, it is a must see movie and another great way to experience the movie is on the Texas State Railroads' Polar Express Train Ride.

Anyone Else Have Black Friday Anxiety?

This should be a verifiable disease; "Black Friday Anxiety." I'm pretty sure I have it. How about you?

Many of the Black Friday ads are out and shoppers are planning their attack. As we learned last week, Black Friday is now Black Thursday with several stores opening at 8 or 9pm on Thanksgiving night. Did you know that sale-shoppers and bargain-hunters will actually end up spending more money in the long run than those who skip the sales and pay full price? There's a tidbit to add to the stress.

Texas Woman Scammed, Buys Fake iPad

Something to keep in mind as the holidays approach: People are selling things everywhere! They're even trying to sell iPads at gas stations. But it doesn't always turn out to be legit.

A Texas woman was scammed out of $200 after a man approached her at a gas station and asked if she wanted to buy "an iPad worth $800 for $200." Apple hasn't even shipped the highest-priced iPads yet, with retail price ranging from $629 to $829, but if you're at a gas station pumping gas, you probably have other things on your mind besides retail releases and ship dates. Did the scammer get caught?

Thanksgiving Doesn’t Always Mean a Day Off

What's your family tradition on Thanksgiving Day?

For many of us, Thanksgiving means getting up early to put the turkey in, smelling the aroma of baking turkey and coffee-brewing while watching parades all morning, then expecting family to arrive promptly at 11am. The rest of the day is all about grazing over piles of turkey and green casserole and putting black olives on our fingertips to make puppets, and then watching the Cowboys on TV. That's what my family does and I thought perhaps you could relate.

Will you be asked to work on Thanksgiving Day? Heaven forbid! But more and more bosses are expecting it!

Holiday Market Starts Thursday in Tyler

Stats say that at this point in November, about half of us have already begun our holiday shopping. Somewhere in the house we have a box of gifts already stashed away, and many of us started picking up the gifts even before Halloween to stay ahead of the game. Call us crazy, but we consider ourselves geniuses cuz we're not hit with the Christmas bills all at once. It's just effective planning!

There's a great opportunity beginning today in Tyler to do a little holiday shopping at the Holiday Market. It is the largest fundraiser for Junior League of Tyler, the community-service organization of women. You'll be able to find lots of great gifts to stash away, and some things for yourself too.

Dark Nail Polish is ‘It’ for Fall

Lady Gaga's nails have become part of her persona. They might be painted black, they might be extra long, they might be pointy and sharp. But they will be SOMETHING. They won't be boring, filed off, and plain.

If the rest of us don't want to venture as far out on that limb as Gaga (after all we don't have a stage to perform on, and we might look funny at school or at the office), what IS a good color for fall for us?

Tyler Kids Can Trade Halloween Candy for a Toy

Over the next couple of days the kids will get piles and piles of candy, so much in fact that they could never possibly eat it all. Some dentists in Tyler hope they don't!

If kids are willing to exchange the candy they rake in trick-or-treating, they can have a toy, thanks to Kool Smiles.
