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?

Who Takes More Vacations, the Employee or the Boss?

It's vacation season and gas prices are low enough that the trip won't have to be cancelled because of that, so where are you headed? My family is going to Austin for a long weekend around the 4th of July, and then later in the summer we're going to see family in Nebraska. Exciting, I know.

If you have a job, chances are you look forward to time away from the job. Who takes the most vacations - us regular ole workers, or the bosses? Take a wild guess.

Smoking Banned at One Local College

When I went to college at the University of Nebraska, I can remember walking out of my journalism building into a puff of smoke. Smokers would congregate outside after class to have a quick drag before the next class. That may be a thing of the past.

More and more schools now are banning smoking on campus, including one local college.

Are Landline Carriers, Photo Finishing and Record Stores Soon to be Obsolete?

Just witnessed an astonishing statistic that not only dates me as being a dinosaur, but also increases my anxiety threshold by a factor of 500.

Listening to the Q107 music library, you may remember companies like Tower Records and Licorice Pizza; teen hang-outs during your adolescent days of growth?  Heck, Fast Times at Ridgemont High was my life.

School’s Out, Why Can’t Workers be Released for the Summer?

We grew up having our summers free, out of school. Why can't that yearly sabbatical continue into adulthood?

Could you imagine having the summers off? We'd be at Lake Sam Rayburn every day sunning ourselves, not thinking about conference calls and work meetings and deadlines. We could go the the movies whenever we wanted, and go out to lunch and down a margarita with the quesadillas if we wanted to. You can see I've put some thought into this.

Some offices do relax a bit during the summer. My spouse's office hours end at 3:00pm four days out of the week during the summer. What summer benefit would you most like to see?

‘Garage’ Sales – A Great Place To Find Treasures

Got lost the other day driving through a maze of "Loops" that took me to Texarkana, when I really wanted to be in San Augustine.  Wasn't a total waste of time though, as my illustrious navigational knack inspired an adventurous detour to the depths of the trifecta, best known...as the ARK-LA-TEX.  Okay, I hear ya'...in English please.
