Are You The Next Steven Spielberg?
We saw it over and over again during the holidays. A teenage boy at his family's Christmas gathering, who apparently only cares about looking at his iPhone. The TV ad--titled, "Misunderstood," has a very touching surprise ending. It turns out that the young man was recording video of the v…
How Was YOUR New Year’s?
How did you ring out 2013 and ring in 2014? A party? Did you go out to a local nightclub and celebrate with friends? Or, perhaps you avoided the crowds, stayed home, and watched the big ball in New York City (or the big Moon Pie in Mobile, AL) drop?

So, What’s For Breakfast?
My days start VERY early...at present, I get up at 3:20am. Why so early, you may (or may not) ask? Because until our new house in Victoria is ready for my wife Sweetie and me to occupy, I am still driving in from El Campo! But I digress. Anyway, when your day starts that early, your whole meal "…

It’s Tamales Time In Texas!
Yesterday, a nice lady (whose name I did not get--sorry!) came by the radio station, selling homemade tamales. Now, I like them just fine, but my wife, Sweetie, just LOVES tamales! It's traditional around the Christmas season for folks to make and sell homemade tamales, most often to raise a li…
Magic Piano!
Recently, Amtrak put a very special interactive piano into Chicago Union Station. The piano could "react" to people nearby, and even interact with people who played it (and other instruments)! This is sure to make you smile!
Earl Pitts 12/16/13: Santa On The Radar
We're all familiar with the Christmas tradition of the North American Air Defense (NORAD) folks keeping track of Santa's sleigh on its annual trek from the North Pole on Christmas Eve. Well, wouldn't you know, this year, someone is "offended" by this "tradition." Well, all it tak…
Earl Pitts 12/13/13: Fooling Bell Ringers
It's almost unavoidable. Whenever you walk into a mall or good-sized store, you hear a bell ringing. It's always nice to make a donation to the Salvation Army. Earl's complaint is how he feels obligated to drop some money into the red bucket EVERY TIME he encounters one. Earl believes in giving, but…
