Top US Small Towns Named

There's something inherently cool about a small town. The people are nice (although they all know each other and can be in everyone's business), there's no traffic, and the stress level can be lower. I'm headed to my one-stoplight hometown in Nebraska for a little family bonding time next week and we're planning to sit on the deck and stare at the trees, and ask the local farmers for permission to walk into their fields and pick corn. Why vacation in a tropical location when you can have that kind of fun? Small towns rock.

Rand McNally and USA Today named the best small towns in all of America this week. Did Lufkin and Nacogdoches make the list?

Texas Tax Free Shopping Weekend Set for August

Lufkin Mall will be packed the weekend of August 17-19. That’s the time frame for this year’s Sales Tax Holiday shopping weekend.

Us gals don’t often need an excuse to shop. We’ll fight the crowds in search of a good deal any old weekend. But just in case you do need an excuse to swipe your credit card and feel good about it, the tax free weekend provides one. It always draws a huge shopping crowd, albeit mostly women and a few guys that get dragged along for the ride.

What’s tax free this year?

How Many Friends Post Unflattering Facebook Pics?

Most of us have done it. We’ve posted a picture to our Facebook profiles and tagged a friend, and that picture doesn’t exactly show the friend’s best side. Sometimes it’s a drunk photo, sometimes it’s goofy, and sometimes friends just don’t like it and say, “why in the world did you post THAT? My hair isn’t right. I look fat. I don’t have makeup on. Thanks a lot.”

A few months ago I was at a face-painting party and this devilish photo ended up on Facebook. It’s not an awful pic, but it’s not an everyday look and showcases the large forehead that I work so hard to disguise.

How many Facebook users admit to posting unflattering photos of their friends?

Parents Go to Great Lengths to Make the 4th Fun

It’s an interesting dilemma for parents today. Kids love watching fireworks, but the public displays can’t start until it gets dark, and that means we have to wait 9:30 or 10:00 to catch a glimpse of the fireworks, and by the time we get the kids home to bed it’s 11:00 or later. That’s LATE if you have kids under five years old. And then Thursday is a big ole mess with those little biological clocks thrown off and grouchiness galore. What to do, what to do.

Wanna enact our plan? We’re having a wild and crazy 4th of July party at home today. It keeps the kids excited and entertained, it involves legal fireworks, and you can have the young ‘uns asleep by 9:00 or 9:30. See how elaborate it gets.

Dogs and Fireworks Don’t Mix

As we mentioned, the fireworks stands have opened up shop in Texas, and you can buy the fireworks through next Wednesday at midnight.

Fun for all! Except the family dog.

Dogs think they're being tortured! Mine run to take cover in the bedroom every time they hear a pop. If we can't find our two miniature schnauzers shaking under the bed, we can usually find them with the jitters billowing under the low rack of clothes in the master closet. The muffled pop may be coming from a mile away outside, but the dogs start whining and yelping like the firecrackers are being shot off from the kitchen sink. Noise is noise, and they don't know how far away it originates. They just think they're being shot at.

What do law enforcement agencies say about dogs and fireworks?

In Texas This Summer, Sunscreen Is Your Friend

Summer is here, and it seems like everyone is hitting the pool or the lake. Who doesn't love relaxing on a boat with a few close friends, family members, and perhaps drinks with umbrellas in them? It's all fun and games until somebody gets a nasty, blistering sunburn.

I got one of those several years ago at Lake Travis in Austin. My back was bare while I was on a boat with friends, I didn't put an ounce of sunscreen on it, and I laid on a raft for about two hours. The next day, if it had been the time period where it was cool to type OMG, that would have been my choice of acronyms. Or perhaps IMBOF (is my back on fire). And yes, I made that up.

What's our skin cancer risk in Texas?
