I came across a Wall Street Journal article recently that talked about inflation and how the prices of dang near everything are going up due to inflation. No big surprise to anyone, we have been seeing it with our own eyes as of late. It is especially tough for small businesses right now, specifically restaurants. The pandemic 2 years ago really threw things off course, with supply-chain shortages
If you are like me, on a regular basis, if there are places that you frequent that ask for your name, it is also not a surprise when you are then prompted to answer, 'what is your date of birth?' Or you are asked for your phone number, address or some other form of verification. Why? Because it is highly likely that you share a name with countless other people in this area.
Father's Day will be here before you know it. Dad's day, is very different from Mother's Day in that mom wants to be pampered, showered with love, gifts and attention. Dad not so much. Dad wants to be left alone to do dad things. Cooking out, dad is always down to throw down with a good barbecue, sit in front of the television to watch the game, there will be some sort of game on, just hand him th
My entire childhood, during the summer, I spent many days wanting to swim. If any of my friend's had a pool, you can bet I was blowing up their phone asking if I could go over and take a dip. If a friend or family member had a 'swimming party' for their birthday or just to celebrate the end of school, it was going to be a good summer...
I do not plan to name names, well maybe 1 at some point in this story but OMG some of the things my coworkers do drive me crazy! I just came back from the restroom and for the 3rd time this week saw something that is such a quick, easy fix, but no, someone, I have no clue who doesn't seem to think it is so simple.
Let me start by saying in my defense, I got my pool in the middle of the pandemic. I was homeschooling my kiddos, they needed something to do for 'P.E.' and I needed them out of my hair for a couple of hours a day. Not to mention everyone had the exact same idea in 2020 so the fact that we actually found 1 on store shelves felt like a sign from the pool gods.
You guys, I was pleasantly surprised to learn over the weekend that chivalry is not dead! Quick shout out to Michael with La Ma convenience store in Odessa where I was hanging out over the weekend. As I went to introduce myself to him, he immediately removed the cowboy hat he was wearing and shook my hand as he told me his name. Can I say this kind of thing makes a lady melt? Manners. Respect. A t
I have stated many times both on-air and in many an article how much I dislike summer. It is 100% my least favorite season of all. You have heard me say everything from the fact that I sweat profusely (some would argue this is not exactly a bad thing, it rids your body of toxins) to I hate being hot, to mosquitoes not being my friends. I am theirs but the feeling is not mutual. Where there is a Re
I absolutely love Facebook groups that were created by West Texans for West Texans and 'newbies' too. I recommend the Facebook group Midland AF if you are new to the area. The administrator does an excellent job of keeping everyone informed of the happenings in the Permian Basin and for those new to the area, see to it that questions about West Texas are answered by fellow West Texans.
