Famous Landmarks in Victoria – Our Top Five

When you can drive two hours in any direction and arrive in some of the largest cities in Texas, it’s easy to plan a day trip to visit some of Texas’ great landmarks. Two hours gets you to Austin, the Capitol of Texas, or San Antonio, the home of the Alamo. Houston, Galveston, Corpus Christi, they’re all right there, just two hours down the road.

With all of these places in such close proximity (relatively speaking), it’s easy to forget that we have some famous landmarks right here in Victoria, Texas. So I’ve put together a list, in no particular order, of some of the historically significant places you might want to visit right here at home.

Facebook – What You Can Learn

Facebook is the largest social network. I mean, is there really any others out there? And we all wonder what we did before it. Some of us update our status, some people pretend not to look at Facebook and won’t admit that they really do, all the time... stalking. And some us are actually using it as a tool to keep up to date with folks we wouldn’t otherwise have time to chat with on the phone as often as we’d like.

We will all admit we learn things about others. Sometimes, it's things we didn’t really want to know.

Kids Say (And Do) The Darnedest Things

As a mom, you love your kids unconditionally, but they sure can embarrass you sometimes! Just the other day, standing in line at the checkout at HEB, my Bowen, who is 2, pointed to a bearded man standing behind us and YELLED, “That man looks like a billy goat! That billy goat STINKS!”

Talk about wanting to run away! I was so embarrassed and couldn’t even turn and walk in the other direction because I had all my groceries laid out on the belt and was ready to check out. To add salt to the mortified wound, Bowen then asked to have a chocolate bunny at the checkout. I told him no and that too much candy would put holes in his teeth. He pointed to the checker and said, rather loudly, “She has holes in her teeth!” I couldn’t get out of there fast enough! To the man with the beard and the checker, I am so sorry that my 2 year old has not learned better manners!

Win a Trip to See Kenny Chesney — Plus, His Top 5 Music Videos

This month, we're giving you the chance to fly to Green Bay to see Kenny Chesney and hang backstage with the country star.

Visit our contest page on Facebook and you can win a flight for two to Green Bay, tickets to Chesney's Goin' Coastal tour stop at Lambeau Field on June 11, 2011, and a backstage pass to meet the country star.

We're so excited, we assembled these five Kenny Chesney videos, which we think perfectly illustrate the singer's visionary style. Chesney's mind-blowing tour productions and his 3D concert special are something to behold — but we think his eclectic music videos are what really establish the country star's unique sensibility.

‘Secret Millionaire’ Doesn’t Fail To Inspire

I just got done watching 'Secret Millionaire' and all I can say is WOW.

My dear friend Monica Lassmann had told me about the show and how touching it was so I decided to watch it. This week's show was about Gary and Diane Heavin who are the co-owners of 'Curves'.

Gary and Diane left their wealthy lifestyles behind to spend a week in Houston's poverty-stricken Third Ward. They were given $6.50 per day to use for food while they were on their journey.

Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner on the Cheap in Victoria

One day, three meals, and a 20 dollar bill

Breakfast:
I live 10 minutes from work. This typically means that on any given day I roll out of bed about 20 minutes before it’s time to be at work. My breakfast generally consists of a cup of coffee with a side of coffee. I’m just not a breakfast/morning person.

However, for the sake of journalism and for you, dear reader, I made the sacrifice of getting up a whole 15 minutes early.

To paraphrase that beer swilling, most interesting man guy, I don’t always eat breakfast but when I do, it’s a breakfast taco. With the goal of cheap *and* tasty in mind, I jumped in my car and headed for Taqueria El Rodeo.

A Bet, a BBQ, a Bunch of Bald Heads

A bet is a bet, right?

The Nasty Cookers BBQ Team entered a BBQ cook off at Colet Inn this past weekend. The cook off benefited LJ Chumchal, who is battling Hodgkins Lymphoma. The bet was that if the Nasty Cookers won, they would allow LJ to shave their heads.

Housework, The Never Ending Battle

My least favorite aspect of being a mom and wife is HOUSEWORK. Yuck! I don’t know if you’ve ever heard the quote, ‘cleaning house while you still have children is like shoveling the drive while it’s still snowing’ but that is exactly how it is!

If I clean while the kids are at school, it’s much easier to get it done, but as soon as the walk in the door, it looks like an explosion of backpacks, shoes and homework. If I clean while they are here, it’s even more pointless. As soon as I have one spot clean, they swarm to it like angry bees. Needless to say my house is never clean for very long.
Luckily my kids are getting old enough to help out. My daughter has dish washing duty (loading the dishwasher). Is it wrong that I assigned her one of my least favorite things to do? My 5 year old clears the table and wipes it down after dinner and they all help out picking up their toys.

Brad Paisley at the Houston Livestock Show

Last week, many people headed to Houston to see the rodeo and see their favorite artist play live. One of our listeners, Vanessa Cantu, went to see Brad Paisley on Saturday with her husband, Oliver. Her favorite song is "Then" because it is their wedding song. Vanessa sees Brad as an artist who gets involved with the audeince and is a great live performer. She said, “He’s such a great person period!” They have seen him every year for the last 4 years and will continue to do so as long as he's there. I think Vanessa might be one of the biggest Brad Paisley fans.
