911 Butt Dials Are a Growing Problem

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.

Holiday Shopping Season is Officially Here

I think I saw the first big, full-blown display of Christmas trees and snow globes and dancing elves in a store around September 15th. That's pure madness! But after I stopped fighting it in my head, I let my excited 4-year old drag me into that section of the store and we both picked up a snow globe and shook it

Fall Colors are Starting to Arrive in East Texas

TV shows are great at making sure we always know what season it is. It's especially noticeable right now with daytime talk shows as we fully transition into fall. The sets are nicely decorated with fall colors, flowers, and vases, and sometimes we can see real live trees and autumn-colored leaves through the windows. It's very cozy, and makes you want to put on a sweater and sip some chai tea while you're watching. The hosts have even been known to dress in fall-colored attire.

Have you noticed the leaves turning yet around East Texas?

Horticulturists say the best colors have yet to arrive. It usually happens in late October, but it could be early November this year because the dry summer and late rains. What East Texas city will the best color display?

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!

Amtrak from Tyler to Dallas? It Could Happen

Have you ever ridden on a train? There’s something nostalgic about it, not to mention the fact that it saves wear and tear on your own car, and the hassle of fighting with other drivers to get where you’re going.

Might East Texas get Amtrak service? There’s an Amtrak route now that runs from San Antonio to Chicago.
