Study: Naps ARE Good For You!

Here in South Texas, the concept of the siesta is not unfamiliar. Most of us know how brief, refreshing "power nap" (if one has the ability to take one) can give you that little "re-charge" of our internal batteries to get through the remainder of a tough work day.

Now, researchers at California State University Berkeley have proof that napping is not only good for you, it's natural for human beings to want to take siestas!

Lifebuzz: 30 Things To Stop Doing To Yourself

I love a good list. Especially lists that offer up some good life advice or helpful suggestions. I happened to see this one linked on Facebook, and found it to be very interesting. I think you will, too!

From time to time, we all find ourselves at a loss for how to deal with some of the stuff life throws at us. Perhaps you and I can find some comfort in the information included in this list!

Is Chivalry Dead?

Dictionary.com defines "gentleman" as:
1. a man of good family, breeding, or social position.
2. (used as a polite term) a man: Do you know that gentleman over there?
3. gentlemen, (used as a form of address): Gentlemen, please come this way.
4. a civilized, educated, sensitive, or well-mannered man: He behaved like a true gentleman.
 
How many true gentlemen are there today? I'm not talking about stuffy, stuck-up arrogant types; I mean someone who regularly exhibits respect for others...especially women? With our "almost anything goes" society these days, it seems to me that gentlemanly behavior stands out like the proverbial "sore thumb." So, how can chivalry be brought back?

101 Reasons You Should Live In Texas At Least Once In Your Life

I saw this posted on Facebook recently, and thought it was great! As one who "wasn't born in Texas, but I got here as fast as I could," I find most of these to be pretty spot-on! For those who don't or haven't lived here, you should come visit Texas...and see why so many agree: "Texas got it right!"

Promises, Promises

Once upon a time, a man's (or woman's) word was their bond. If one made a promise, and then didn't deliver on that promise, it was not only considered "bad form," but an extreme embarrassment. A cloud of shame could descend upon an entire family over one broken promise.

But here, well into the 21st century, it seems that promises can be made and broken without much thought, be it in politics, government, business, or just between neighbors, friends or family members.

Study: Drummers Are ‘Natural Intellectuals’

I love it when science and medicine confirm something I've known most of my life! I hate to brag, but hey...this was a scientific study, and who am I to argue with scientists; especially when their conclusions serve to boost my ego a little? If you know (or are yourself) a drummer, this will make your day!

The Phoebe Philes–Part 1

Skeeter notes: Sometimes, I get 'writer's block' when trying to come up with something clever for my blog posts here. So, I asked my Pug "princess," Phoebe, to write something for me this week. Now, you may say to yourself, "Dogs can't write!" And you would be correct. However, with patience, training, and treats, they can be taught to type. So, without further ado, I present Part 1 of "The Phoebe Philes."

Pick Me! Pick ME!

I am not above shameless self-promotion. After all, if I was an introvert, I picked the wrong career path! But seriously, I need your help to make this bit of shameless self-promotion happen. The Victoria Advocate is gathering votes for their 2014 "Best of the Best Awards." There are a whole bunch of different categories, such as "Best Mexican Restaurant," "Best Dry Cleaning Service," "Best Dog Groomer"...well, you get the idea.

Goodbye, North Star Drive Ball Field!

If you haven't driven up North Star Drive in Victoria recently (that's the street where the KIXS 108/Townsquare Media studios and offices are), then you may not have seen the flurry of earth-moving activity happening on the piece of land in the middle of the two sections of the street. This area of grassy field had been, for many years, a place where aspiring Major League players would learn and practice their baseball skills. A rusty backstop is the only evidence left of what was once, I'm sure, a "field of dreams." And, it's only a matter of time before
