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.

Kids Cost Big Bucks

They're out with those numbers again, about how much it costs to raise a child from age 0 to 17.

Parents will swallow hard...the US Dept. of Agriculture says it takes $234,900 to raise a kid, including food, shelter, and necessities. Depending upon your definition and your child's definition of necessities, it could be $2 million, right? A kid has to have his Wii.

Texas is actually one of the cheapest places in the US to raise a child.

Texas Drawl May be Fading

Are we losin' our drawl ya all?

A new study says Texas may be losing its twang. Do you agree?

If it's true, the obvious answer may be because of the number of transplants that live in Texas. When a Chicago native moves to Texas they bring a northern accent and a lot of those people together can sort of squeeze out and disperse the yee haws.

Crazy Texas Laws That You Didn’t Know About

I overheard a girl at the office the other day about how using margarine is illegal in Wisconsin. I told her how that has to be the dumbest and craziest law out there. So I did some research and the laws I found throughout the US was ridiculous. So I narrowed it down to the craziest laws in Texas and this is what I found.

Texas 12-Year Old Banned From Playing Football

Six feet tall and 300 pounds sounds like a good size to play football. But apparently that’s too big at age 12, and in that case league rules say the boy will have to stay on the sidelines.

Fox Sports Southwest did a story that many media outlets are covering, on the 12-year old boy from Mesquite, near Dallas, who was told after a weigh-in Sunday that he wouldn’t be able to play.

Solar Eclipse This Sunday Will be Partial in Texas

An eclipse like this only happens once every twenty years, and it will be viewable in Texas Sunday; partially anyway. 

A solar eclipse is when the moon blocks out the sun for a time, and leaves a ring of fire around its circumference.  The sky gets a little spooky-looking for a bit and then the moon and sun part like a good Dancing with the Stars release move, and life goes back to normal.

Spots like Reno, NV and Albuquerque, NM will have the most spectacular views of the complete eclipse, but the entire path of the eclipse stretches from China to Texas.  Plenty of folks will have the opportunity to see the rare show of nature.

Are You Owed Money or Property from the State of Texas?

I was reading this morning that Jason Mraz has some unclaimed money waiting for him in the state of West Virginia according to the state treasurer there.  It's believed the money is tied to a concert that was held there a couple of years ago.  I've always heard there was a list like this out there so I went searching to see if I had any money coming to me from the great state of Texas!
