Become a Volunteer Leader at the Museum of East Texas

Going on field trips in elementary school was always a hoot because it meant not bustin' open the textbook for half a day.  Still remember going to the rock quarry and learning about geological formations -- when Marcel, the school bully, wasn't pouncing on me just for fun.

Thanksgiving Not Necessarily a Day Off

What’s your family tradition on Thanksgiving Day?

For many of us, Thanksgiving means getting up early to put the turkey in, smelling the aroma of baking turkey and coffee-brewing while watching parades all morning, then expecting family to arrive promptly at 11am. The rest of the day is all about grazing over piles of turkey and green casserole and putting black olives on our fingertips to make puppets, and then watching the Cowboys on TV. That’s what my family does and I thought perhaps you could relate.

Will you be asked to work on Thanksgiving Day? Heaven forbid! But more and more bosses are expecting it!

The Average Coffee-Drinker has at least 2 Cups Per Day

Coffee is part of life for many of us.

Before making the big decision about whether or not to become pregnant, I asked my doctor if I could still consume my daily 2.5 cups of coffee during pregnancy. It’s a must. If I have a sip less than that, I can feel it. And I knew I may not survive pregnancy if I had to ween myself off, or worse yet, quit cold turkey.

If I could drink coffee while pregnant, then ok, I’d do more forward with the baby-havin’. If coffee was off limits during pregnancy, then that would just be a life change too huge to handle. Must have coffee!

Do You Wash Your Hands in Public?

Do you wash your hands EVERY time you use a public restroom?

Perhaps you wash your hands religiously after using the restroom at a store or restaurant, but not so much at work. Who cares, you know all those people in the office and they're like family, right? You can let the hand-washing slide there. Ew! Family members and those donut-eating co-workers have germs too.

Just how many people skip washing their hands at public restrooms and go ahead and spread the germs?

Lufkin May See an Economic Boost

When most people think about oil, they think about money. Cash seems to follow the industry, and some of the wealthiest people in the US are linked to oil. Could an influx of oil money be coming to Lufkin?

A new Angelina Tank and Manufacturing plant has opened up after the city of Lufkin worked hard to draw it in and encourage the owner to set up shop here. The company manufactures tanks and other materials to support the oil industry. And there may be an opportunity for you to get involved.

Greatest Unknown Holiday of the Year Arrives Tomorrow

Usually I don't get so emotional that tears free flow from my eyes, but there are those solemn events in one's life that necessitate a good cry, and for me, there is no better day -- than tomorrow.

Please share your love with me when I tell you that this "holiday" is so extra special, that I'm planning a personal celebration here at the radio station.  No R.S.V.P. required.  You are all invited to attend and become my special guests, so long as you bring your own food & drink (no alcohol please - at least not during business hours).

Better bring your own folding chair too; and a napkin just in case you spill.

Just one requirement though before entering the building, and that is you must come in costume as your favorite Classic Rocker.  No prizes will be handed out, but if we can't figure out "who you are", we will laugh at you uncontrollably.

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?
