NFL Drops Roman Numerals For the Super Bowl. For One Year Anyway.

Do you know what number the Roman Numeral "L" stands for?

Me neither!

And if you know it's 50, good for you.  You're very smart and well-rounded.

The NFL has decided to drop the Roman Numerals for Super Bowl 50 in San Francisco in 2016, because the lonely "L" just doesn't work.

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.

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.

That Stick-Figure Decal on Your Car Could Be Putting Your Family in Danger

They're all over the place—stick figures of a family stuck on the back window or bumper of a car or truck—but are these innocent-seeming decorations actually adding to a family's risk?

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.

The Bees Are Coming

One spring day a few years back I walked out into my back yard and heard a buzzing sound loud enough to be a small saw, and I looked up into my arbor and noticed an enormous bee hive hanging down from the rafters.  I had never seen so many bees in my life!  Small ones, one on top of the other, all layered to form the hive.  I don't know how bees don't get claustrophobic living like that, but the bee keeper told me they're happy like that, crawling all over one another around the queen.

Carpenter bees are coming to East Texas, and if you're not already seeing them you will be soon.
