It's fun to pick on the boys in the office, fun to play music, and fun to talk to you all day at work. Thanks for listening! I grew up in a one-stoplight town in rural Nebraska. My whole family still lives there and I love going back to visit them, but I also love Texas. Barbecue, fajitas, and great live music....it's the place to be. I've lived in Texas for 16 years now. Austin, Dallas, and here. I've worked in radio from the moment I graduated from college. (The University of Nebraska...Go Huskers!) I've been on a hundred stations at one point or another. I just love radio. Other things I love....let's see. Blue ink. Black bores me a bit. I love cheddar cheese and barbecue sauce and anything that the two happen to touch. I fall asleep in almost every movie I attempt to watch I have made it through Eat, Pray, Love and Mr. Wright. I like chick flicks. I have an awesome family and love spending time with them. You'll probably hear me talk about my daughters on the air. They're toddler girls who exhaust me, crack me up, and amaze me because I don't think I was ever that smart. I have two miniature schnauzers too. Thanks for stopping by. Now tell me about you.

Kids! Mama Got Roped Into Getting Another Pet.

Kids always want a pet it seems. My three daughters seem to rotate the duty of asking for a new pet, even though we have a miniature schnauzer named Harry and he's a good boy and not in danger of losing his role in the family. When I point out that we could just settle in and be content with Harry, they inevitably ask, "Ok, but when Harry dies, can we have a cat?"

I don't know whether to be upset, or just be thankful that they are forward-thinkers who are already planning for the future and setting lofty goals. It's the little things.

I finally caved and bought a fish. I too love aquatic life and supported the girls in their $4 decision to invest in Maddox the Betta. But here's why I'm having pet regret.

Need to Boost Your Library of Emoticons? Here!

Do you ever feel like you're not using your full emoticon potential?  I do.

To emote in text and email, I usually default to the quick and easy ones like these:

:-D

Everyone else seems so much better at cyber emoting!  So I decided to do a little research to get better with the cyber winks, and I decided to share what I found.  You may be all over these already.

Wanna Text 911? It Could Happen Soon in East Texas.

It's usually so much easier to text someone rather than pick up the phone and call.

To your sweetie: "Could you grab some wine on the way home?"  It takes a minute when actually dialing and calling might take five, because your spouse things of a hundred other things to tell you while you're on the phone.  And hopefully the reply is a simple, "Yep!  ;-)"

What about emergencies?  Is texting the quickest way to 911?

It may be coming to East Texas.

Several Boating Accidents Reported Over the Holiday Weekend

My grandparents had a cabin on a lake in Nebraska, and as I was growing up some of the best memories came from spending Sunday afternoons there swimming, fishing, and learning to ski.

My grandparents lived there year round, but with everyone else flocking to the lake during the summer, my Grandpa would always say Memorial Day marked the beginning of "silly season" at the lake.  The lake was usually pretty quiet, but during the summer months the extra crowds, boaters, and campers changed all that.

Summer is busy for lakes, and it can also be dangerous.  Have you read about all of the boating accidents that happened around East Texas over Memorial Day weekend? One of the accidents involved a Game Warden.

31-Year Old Woman Accused Of Posing As a High School Student Had Wide Impact

The 31-year old woman posing as a high school sophomore in East Texas fooled many people besides just her classmates.

Charity Stevens (also known as Charity Johnson) was arrested a week ago for failing to provide identification to Longview Police.  It turns out, she had been posing as a student at New Life Christian School in Longview since last fall, and not even her friends or adoptive family knew she was sixteen years older than she said she was.  Click HERE for our original story.

And there's another business in East Texas that was kept in the dark by Stevens.
