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?

Lamp-Lite’s Theatre ‘Annie’, Coming To Nacogdoches [VIDEO]

Whether it's a full scale Broadway production, television special, film release, or Community Theatre performance, the plot has remained the same since 1977, when the original 'Annie' debuted to audiences with all the pomp and circumstance it was billed at.

I've had the pleasure of seeing this show some ten times in my lifetime, with each one awesome in its own right.  A huge supporter of local Community Theatre, this is one of the hidden treasures of seeing the show in a largely intimate setting, and now is your chance to join me in welcoming 'Annie' to Nacogdoches.

‘East Texas Cricket Invasion 2012′ – Now Playing At a Residence or Business Near You! [VIDEO]

Nothing spoils a night sitting on the porch staring at a full moon like an insect infestation.  Where I live - got 'em all - Spiders, Ants, Roaches, and Crickets!  The Crickets outnumber the other bugs about three-to-one.

A person that specializes in the knowledge of insects has an unpronounceable title that begins with the letter "E" and ends with "ologist".  You can either SOLVE THE PUZZLE (Wheel of Fortune), or make an appointment with your optometrist.  If you can read the first three lines of the eye chart, you'll have the official sounding name of a person that gravitates toward something that most of us would simply like to never come in contact with.
