By Renie Stag Smith I didn’t go shopping this past Black Friday. I apparently was one of the few.  I hope that next year more of you join me. It’s not that I don’t appreciate a bargain.  As a teacher, I look for bargains everywhere to make my meager salary stretch further. I just don’t […]

By Renie Stag Smith I was on Facebook earlier this evening (why do I feel the need to check up on my friends and relatives each night?) and one of my high school friends posted, “I read an article, ‘50 Thanksgiving Story Starters.’ In addition to saying what everyone is thankful for, these are topics […]

The girls celebrated Thanksgiving with the help of The Dead Celebrity Cookbook by Frank DeCaro.  Before the show, they sat down for their meal of chicken a la Elizabeth Taylor, Gregory Peck’s ratatouille, and Richard Deacon’s yummy parfait (which may, or may not, have had a jigger too much of cognac stirred in).  We found […]

By Renie Stag Smith Tumbleweeds. Either you love ‘em or you hate ‘em. I hate ‘em!  But that’s because I live in the very windy Southwest region of the United States where those wiry weeds grow each and every summer.  Sometimes, that’s the only thing that seems to grow wild, as in this last hot […]

Many people make wishes every day when the clock strikes 11:11. Some people believe there is great ancient power in the date. But it also has historical significance: In 1918, the Armistice of WWI was signed on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month. Our curiosity is getting the better of […]

Things just ain’t what they used to be! This week on the show, we talk about sending cards, the Pony Express, and “Cattin’ Around.” We find out that they aren’t really teaching cursive handwriting in school anymore and discuss how our handwriting is changing (hint: it’s the computer’s fault). We also talk about debit card […]
